We recently began a land-by-land tour through the six themed lands of the new Shanghai Disneyland, starting with Mickey Avenue. Today, we continue with the beautiful Gardens of Imagination.

Created especially for Shanghai Disneyland, the Gardens of Imagination celebrates the wonders of nature and the joy of imagination, offering guests a place to leave their everyday life behind to enjoy the variety of unique gardens, take a spin on the Fantasia Carousel, soar on Dumbo the Flying Elephant or explore the sights and sounds of Melody Garden.

The first land inside a Disney park designed as a garden, the Gardens of Imagination is tailored to the Chinese people’s love of gardens. More than 100 species of shrubs and more than 60 species of trees adorn the land’s fifteen acres.

Inside Gardens of Imagination, Garden of the Twelve Friends makes its global premiere at Shanghai Disneyland, starring Disney and Disney•Pixar characters in Chinese zodiac style. This whimsical garden features 12 larger-than-life mosaic murals, each depicting a Disney or Disney•Pixar character who represents a Chinese zodiac animal symbol.

Next, we continue our tour of Shanghai Disneyland with Adventure Isle … pack your gear and join us!
