Shanghai Disney Resort Celebrates First Spring Season after Grand OpeningPublished: March 16, 2017 / Last Updated: March 16, 2017 / By: Arvid Bux
To celebrate the first spring season after its grand opening, Shanghai Disney Resort announced the launch of a new Shanghai Disneyland Spring Seasonal Pass on March 18. The new Spring Seasonal Pass offers a tremendous value for guests by giving them the opportunity to experience the magic of Shanghai Disneyland throughout the spring and early summer season, and to be immersed in the charm and natural beauty of Shanghai Disneyland in springtime.
Shanghai Disney Resort is a multi-day experience with the perfect combination of Shanghai Disneyland, a world-class Disney theme park that has welcomed almost eight million guests since its grand opening; Disneytown, a shopping, dining and entertainment district where the Mandarin production of the Broadway musical THE LION KING is now playing; and Wishing Star Park, an outdoor recreational area where guests can encounter the charm of the nature. Along with the introduction of the new seasonal pass, the resort also kicked off a series of new exciting initiatives throughout the resort to allow guests to spend quality time together with families and friends and get connected with nature in the best season of the year.
“Shanghai Disney Resort has proven to be enormously popular with guests in China, and we have received overwhelmingly positive feedback for the seasonal pass we introduced last fall,” said Philippe Gas, general manager of Shanghai Disney Resort. “As we welcome our first spring season since opening, we continue to offer our guests unique ways to immerse themselves in the unparalleled storytelling and creativity of Shanghai Disneyland. With the arrival of spring, Shanghai Disneyland is coming to life with the beauty of flowering trees and plants, creating an even more magical world to experience the charm of nature and the magic of Disney. The Spring Seasonal Pass allows guests to enjoy the park at their own pace, time and time again, and enjoy the fragrant sites and scents of springtime in Shanghai.”
Get connected with nature
Spring has almost sprung and with warm weather moving in across the region, guests are itching to shake off their winter coats, breathe in spring air and enjoy the seasonal charm. Shanghai Disney Resort’s outdoor recreational areas, from Disneytown to Wishing Star Park, are some of the best places to celebrate the true splendor of nature with an array of leisure activities.
Horticulture in Shanghai Disney Resort serves as the best decoration for this season with wide-ranging species of flowering plants and trees throughout the resort – including magnolia, cherry blossom, plum and apple trees – which have already started blooming and are expected to peak in the following weeks. The magic of nature in springtime will be on full display throughout Shanghai Disneyland, Disneytown and Wishing Star Park.
In this colorful season, guests visiting Disneytown will have even more entertainment and recreational options. Beloved Disney characters will pay regular visits to Disneytown for the first time to greet guests in person and create fun magical moments. Activities tailored for families with children and seasonal events for guests of all ages will also be introduced to allow guests to discover new surprises every time they return to Disneytown.
In Wishing Star Park, a new bicycle rental service is now available for guests to enjoy together with families and friends and get connected with nature. The 500,000-square-meter Wishing Star Park evokes the native landscape and historic legacy of the Yangtze River Delta. Since opening day, millions of guests have explored the park’s vibrant and thriving habitats along the beautiful, glittering lake, while enjoying a tranquil escape and activities for the entire family.
Guests visiting Shanghai Disneyland this spring will also have an opportunity to customize their experience and make their visit more flexible than ever. Starting March 18, guests can maximize their day by purchasing the new Disney Premier Access to enjoy priority access to participating attractions at Shanghai Disneyland. Attractions offering this new service include: Soaring Over the Horizon and Roaring Rapids in Adventure Isle, TRON Lightcycle Power Run and Buzz Lightyear Planet Rescue in Tomorrowland, Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh and Peter Pan’s Flight in Fantasyland. A limited number of both single access and bundle packages will be available for purchase at authorized locations within the theme park.
