Disney twenty-three is available exclusively to Gold Members of D23. Learn more at D23.com.
I visited Shanghai Disneyland last month, and the park is gorgeous. Its HUGE! I estimate that its about twice the size of my home park – Disneyland in Anaheim. The most impressive attractions were Pirates Of The Caribbean; Battle For The Sunken Treasure and Roaring Mountain. Pirates is truly a marvel of a theme park attraction. The videos posted to YouTube don’t do it justice. I was disappointed with Voyage To The Crystal Grotto. It was very lackluster. You essentially look at a bunch of oversize, nearly inanimate, music boxes. Tron is a good coaster, but entirely too short. Peter Pan’s Flight was amazing – it brings the classic Fantasy Land style dark rides into the 21st. century.
Is this available to new members only or will the current members be seeing this in their mailboxes soon? 🙂
