Everything We Know So Far About Shanghai Disneyland Zootopia

Looks like it’s been ages since Disney first announced that a new Zootopia-themed lands would be built at the Shanghai Disneyland Resort. Zootopia (Where Zootropolis as it’s called in the UK) was a huge hit when it hit theaters in 2016 (which just happens to be the same year Shanghai Disneyland Resort opened).

In fact, it even became the highest-grossing animated film of all time in China (it has since been passed). But that’s enough for the movie (although we love it a lot!) – let’s talk about the new country that comes to life at Shanghai Disneyland Resort. Here’s everything we know about the “real” Zootopia …

5. Size and location

The new themed land will be located behind Fantasyland at Shanghai Disneyland Resort, near Hundred Acre Goods and the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. As for its size, we don’t know the exact dimensions, but we do know that this is the second largest expansion for Shanghai Disneyland Resort since it opened in 2016.

However, last year aerial views of the thematic field were shared on social media (see above). It is clear from the picture that the area is quite large, which is pretty standard for a themed land, as Toy Story Land (also at Shanghai Disneyland Resort) is not really small! It also eclipses the castle from the enchanted storybook!

4. Catering

Very little is known about the type of restaurants one can expect in Zootopia, but a concept image previously released by Disney includes Jumbeaux’s Cafe, as seen in the 2016 film. Let’s just hope these elephants have trunks. gloved when they make us ice cream!

The rest of the restaurants are unknown, but when it comes to entertainment venues, whether indoors or outdoors, it seems like there’s a lot going on. At this week’s Disney D23 event, an image from another Zootopia audio-animatronic was revealed in the form of ‘Mystic Springs’ owner Yax. It is not known if these models are part of entertainment venues or attractions, but they look amazing anyway.
