Shanghai Disneyland is now officially open, and guests are enjoying the park’s six amazing themed lands. It’s the perfect day to continue our land-by-land tour with that Disney Parks classic, Fantasyland. Inspired by Disney’s animated films, this is the largest of all the lands in Shanghai Disneyland and home to the majestic Enchanted Storybook Castle. The castle overlooks a storybook village and an enchanted forest where exciting attractions immerse guests in beloved stories.
Voyage to the Crystal Grotto is an enchanting excursion that travels the waters of Fantasyland. Fountains and sculptures line the water’s edge, celebrating classic tales like “Mulan,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Fantasia,” “Tangled,” “Aladdin” and “The Little Mermaid.” At the journey’s end, guests glide beneath Enchanted Storybook Castle an underground chamber in which magical crystals come to life, covering the walls with moving light and color.
In the Hundred Acre Wood section of Fantasyland, Hunny Pot Spin is a delightful family attraction where guests ride inside whirling honey pots – in honor of Winnie the Pooh’s favorite food. Beneath a canopy strung with honey-dripping hives, friendly bees hum the “Winnie the Pooh” song as guests twirl in their honey pots, labeled in English and Chinese.
Designed especially for Shanghai Disneyland, Alice in Wonderland Maze is the first attraction in a Disney park themed to Tim Burton’s live-action film, “Alice in Wonderland.” In this new experience, guests choose their own path as they wind through the whimsical world of Wonderland on their way to the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. Along the way, they may encounter the Cheshire Cat, the Bandersnatch and sculptures of characters, including the temperamental Red Queen.
We conclude our journey through Shanghai Disneyland with Tomorrowland, so check back soon!
I visited Shanghai Disneyland in September, and overall the park is gorgeous. There are far too few attractions for my taste, but hopefully that will be rectified over the next several years. The new Peter Pan’s Flight was incredible and sets a new standard for the traditional “fantasyland dark ride.” I just wish that they had included modern versions of other Fantasyland dark rides. I can only imagine how cool Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride would be with all the new technology that they used for Peter Pan’s Flight.
Shanghai Disneyland is just AMAIZING!! I was there a few weeks ago and this huge park is really magical, specially Fantasyland, I can say is the biggest in a Disney Park.
One tip: Please do the SD Passport activity and get all the stamps! It’s a great souvenir and is fun to do it!
