Shanghai Disney Resort Launches Chinese New Year Celebration Themed Metro TrainsPublished: January 19, 2017 / Last Updated: January 19, 2017 / By: Arvid Bux
As the Chinese New Year approaches, Shanghai Disney Resort and Shentong Group are celebrating the Spring Festival with four new themed trains on Shanghai Metro Line 11. Customized both inside and out with decorations blending Chinese Lunar New Year customs with classic Disney elements, the trains will delight guests from near and far as they take the metro to and from the resort.
With the background color set in festive red, the trains are wrapped with images of classic Disney characters dressed in traditional Chinese attire. Sending New Year greetings to the passengers, Mickey can be seen writing wishes on a scroll with a brush, and sharing the joy with Minnie. Guests will also find Goofy and Pluto showing their big Fu (meaning “Lucky” in Chinese) and a holiday window paper cut-out, and Donald Duck and Daisy holding an abundance of New Year treats and festive flowers, all together to welcome guests to join Shanghai Disney Resort’s unique Chinese New Year celebrations.
The interior of the trains are also decorated from the bottom up with Disney’s creativity presented in every detail. The roof is adorned with New Year wishes, while the beloved Disney characters greet guests throughout. Disney elements seamlessly integrate with traditional Chinese design, as cloud patterns symbolic of luck form into Mickey heads around the Enchanted Storybook Castle on every door of the trains.
Metro Line 11 is the preferred mode of transportation for many guests visiting Shanghai Disney Resort. Shanghai Disney Resort and Shanghai Shentong Metro Group have successfully launched a series of themed metro trains since the resort’s grand opening. From the magical Christmas season to the celebration of the Mandarin production of THE LION KING and the latest Chinese New Year Festival, the colorful and creative designs add a special touch to the experience of guests traveling to the resort. These special themed trains continue to provide guests a colorful beginning and end to their visit to Shanghai Disney Resort, where they create magical memories together with family and friends that will last a lifetime.
