Due to high demand, Shanghai Disney Resort parking lots will be at or near full capacity during the weekends and holidays. Guests visiting Shanghai Disneyland and Disneytown are advised to take the metro, taxi or other public transportation.
Zootopia has officially opened at Shanghai Disneyland on December 20. As we continue to manage maximum capacity for each area of our resort, and in anticipation of high demand to visit Zootopia during its opening period, please understand that admission to Zootopia or its new attraction “Zootopia: Hot Pursuit” may not be secured for every guest who enters Shanghai Disneyland. However, guests will be able to encounter multiple new experiences with a Zootopia touch throughout the park, including decoration, entertainment, food & beverage and merchandise.

Please also note that overnight queuing for entry to Shanghai Disneyland on any day is not permitted. Guests are encouraged to plan their trip accordingly.

In the opening phase, we expect that pauses and brief downtimes may occur from time to time in the new attraction “Zootopia: Hot Pursuit”. Downtimes may occur for a variety of reasons due to the complexity of the ride system and built-in safety features, based on industry requirements and best practices. In the event of downtime, guests will be required to evacuate according to onsite cast members' instructions. Operation of the attraction will be resumed after the completion of all necessary procedures. We appreciate the understanding and cooperation of our guests during this opening period.

Treasured Disney Tales on a Grand Scale

Celebrate the stories that spark the imagination and inspire us all to follow our dreams.

To honor the discovery of the Crystal Grotto, the people of Fantasyland created enchanted sculpture gardens along the waterway lining its approach. Each honors one of the tales inside the cavern—and lives on as an enduring part of the Disney legacy, reminding us to follow our hearts and hold onto our dreams... happily ever after.

These stories are enduring parts of the Disney legacy because they remind us to follow our hearts and hold onto our dreams... happily ever after.

Aladdin – Inspired by the timeless legend of 1001 Arabian Nights, this delightful Disney feature proves that, no matter where you start out, there's no limit to where you can end up. With wit, courage and some Genie magic, Aladdin overcomes an evil sorcerer and wins a princess’ heart to rise from 'street rat' to sultan.

The Sorcerer's Apprentice – This enchanting vignette from the Disney classic Fantasia is a vivid reminder of the power of imagination. When Mickey Mouse dons his master’s magical cap, he has the power to bring a broom to life to do his chores. But when he can't control his creation, the results are alarming and hilarious!

Tangled – The Brothers Grimm's Rapunzel legend is retold in a story that empowers us all to break away from what holds us back. Like our courageous heroine and the daring Flynn Rider, we must follow our hearts and dreams to realize our true potential.

Mulan – Based on Hua Mulan, this endearing film marked the first time that Disney animation brought a Chinese legend to life. Mulan is a young woman who poses as a soldier to take her father’s place in the army. By defying her culture, she helps save her nation. An uplifting tale of loyalty, courage and honor, Mulan proves there's a hero inside all of us.

The Little Mermaid – In a fun-filled, musical version of Hans Christian Andersen’s timeless tale, Ariel the mermaid is ready to give up everything she has to become part of our human world. For all of us who yearn for something more, The Little Mermaid shows us that 'happily ever after' is never out of reach—even if it's a world away.
