Shanghai Disneyland, the first Disney theme park in China, shared a peek at what the Resort will look like with the unveiling of a scale model to showcase its two hotels and six themed lands including Adventure Isle, Gardens of Imagination, Mickey Avenue, Tomorrowland and more.

Disney chairman and CEO, Bob Iger announced details of the highly anticipated vacation destination during a presentation at Shanghai Expo Centre, unveiling a scale model of the resort and displays that showcase key highlights of attractions, entertainment, dining and hotels.



In Tomorrowland, one of the six themed lands, guests will be able to experience the TRON Lightcycle Power Run, a new coaster-style attraction where riders board a train of two-wheeled Lightcycles for one of the most thrilling adventures at any Disney park.


Along with Tomorrowland, the theme park will also include Treasure Cove – the first pirate-themed land at a Disney park, leveraging innovative technologies in the new Pirates of the Caribbean – Battle for the Sunken Treasure and a stunt show featuring Captain Jack Sparrow.
