Shanghai Disneyland News!

Over the weekend I came across some amazing information about Shanghai Disneyland! Last Friday at the D23 Expo, some brand new pictures AND a video were released!

Here are a couple of pictures of the highly anticipated Enchanted Storybook Castle!

This castle will be the 'largest and most immersive castle at any Disney park around the world'. It will also be the first castle not dedicated to a specific princess, as it will represent all of them.

The castle will have multiple levels to explore and will feature a princess meet and greet. It will also house the first Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique princess makeover experience to be inside a castle. There will also be an attraction called the 'Once Upon a Time Adventure' - a large-scale walkthrough experience. 

And if all this wasn't exciting enough ... for the first time ever, a boat ride attraction in Fantasyland will be part of the castle itself! Check out the picture below!

This video is unbelievable - I can't even tell you how many goosebumps I got! :P lol!

This castle is going to be absolutely amazing!! The spiral staircase in the middle is going to be just breath-taking! They layout is exciting too ... totally different to entering right off the top of Main Street like in all the other Disney Parks. I've said it before - whilst I adore Main Street in Dlp with the view of the castle at the end - I can't wait to see how Shanghai Disneyland develops as the first Disney park with out this common feature. This new layout might be even more realistic of a castle entrance and therefore even more immersive into a fairytale world :)

What do you guys think of the new pictures and video?? :D Are you excited for Shanghai Disneyland? :)

You can check out more at the Official Shanghai Disney Resort Website!
