Shanghai Disney Resort breaks ground for third themed hotel
Construction on Shanghai Disney Resort's third themed hotel officially kicked off on Thursday.
Located on the shores of Wishing Star Lake, it is positioned as a deluxe hotel with 400 rooms, providing extraordinary views of Shanghai Disneyland.
Influenced by Art Nouveau architecture and design, and infused with Disney storytelling and whimsy, the hotel design is an homage to Shanghai's unique early 20th-century architectural legacy, while staying true to the resort's overall planning principle of being "authentically Disney and distinctly Chinese."
New dining, shopping and entertainment experiences will also be introduced.
Currently, Shanghai Disney Resort encompasses Shanghai Disneyland, Disneytown, Wishing Star Park, and two themed hotels ― the elegant 420-room Shanghai Disneyland Hotel and the playful 795-room Toy Story Hotel ― as well as outdoor recreation areas.
Construction on the world's first Zootopia-themed facility is well on its way, with it scheduled to be completed this year, becoming the eighth themed land at Shanghai Disneyland.
