in Disney, Shanghai Disneyland, Theme Parks

Shanghai Disneyland is celebrating its Grand Opening this week, and as you may have noticed, we’ve been trying our hardest to keep up to date with all of the many festivities Disney planned for the occasion. For example, the park hosted its jaw-dropping opening ceremony with an incredible performance by the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra.

We’ve also started taking an up-close look at each of the new park’s six areas, one by one, and showcasing videos of each individual attraction. Today we dive deep into Fantasyland, the heart and soul of every Disneyland-model Disney park around the world– a land of magic, wonder, and of course, princesses.

WATCH:

Shanghai Disneyland’s Fantasyland is home to Voyage of the Crystal Grotto, and you might call this attraction the park’s Jungle Cruise. But instead of your boat coasting past elephants and hippo pools, you’re seeing animatronic recreations of some of Disney’s most famous animated fantasy characters.

WATCH:

There’s an Alice in Wonderland maze, updated from the version at Disneyland Paris. This time it’s coordinated with the style and characters of the recent Tim Burton-produced “Alice in Wonderland” film franchise.

WATCH:

What would Fantasyland be without a dark ride or two? Peter Pan’s Flight has found another new home at Shanghai Disneyland, with some cool, unique effects.

WATCH:

The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train only recently opened at Walt Disney World, but it’s already been replicated at Disney’s newest overseas park. The ride and story seem mostly the same as its Florida brother, but this coaster does offer some magnificent views of the giant Enchanted Storybook Castle at Shanghai Disneyland’s center.

WATCH:

And who can forget Winnie the Pooh? The chubby little cubby has made his mark in not one, but two attractions at Shanghai Disneyland. The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh emulates the dark ride found at Disneyland in Anaheim and the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World, and the Hunny Pots are this park’s take on the Mad Tea Party.

WATCH:

There’s still plenty of attention to be paid to the many varied lands, offerings, and attractions at Shanghai Disneyland, so stay tuned to Inside the Magic as we continue to explore Disney’s newest theme park.
