Today, Shanghai Disney Resort announced that a “Zootopia”-themed land is coming to Shanghai Disneyland, marking the second major expansion since the resort opened in 2016. Based on the Walt Disney Animation Studios’ hit animated movie, this exciting development will be the park’s eighth themed land and the first-ever “Zootopia”-themed land at any Disney park.

Guests will be invited to experience the mammalian metropolis of Zootopia “where anyone can be anything,” with a new major attraction that will seamlessly blend Disney storytelling and state-of-the-art technology to bring this fan-favorite movie and its characters to life – including Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde. Entertainment, merchandise, and food and beverage offerings will invite guests to fully immerse themselves in the Academy-Award-winning animated movie.

The development of the world’s first “Zootopia”-themed land follows the huge success of the “Zootopia” animated movie globally, particularly in China where it broke box office records to become the country’s No. 1 animated feature film in history.

Construction is targeted to begin later this year! As always, keep your eyes on the Disney Parks Blog for more exciting updates all the way from Shanghai Disney Resort.


  • I am so looking forward to following this! Zootopia is actually one of my favorite movies and I hoped that an attraction was in the works for years. If it comes to Animal Kingdom I will be in heaven!!

  • This is so wonderful to hear that Zootopia is going to be featured at a Disney Park. I am personally jealous that Shanghai Disneyland gets this addition first.

    I know a few kids that would love to experience the world of Zootopia. I do hope that they will be bringing a Zootopia experience to US parks too!

    But this is great news! 🙂 Can’t wait to see what Walt Disney Imagineering do with this experience! I can’t wait to hear more about it! So pumped!

  • I hope to see Zootopia in Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World. Because I love that Movie.

  • Zootopia in ANIMAL KINGDOM,,!!!!!!!

  • Furries unite!

  • So jealous. I would love to see Zootopia in the Animal Kingdom in Disney World! So much could be done with such a concept, and I think it would attract tons of people to the park given the film’s success.
