Explore Shangai Disneyland From The Sky

Some new aerial photos of Shanghai Disneyland have appeared on Google Maps, showing off the construction of the park's various attractions.

There's still plenty of work to do before the park opens (said to be late 2015), but some attractions are already clear.  Above is a shot of the park's Fantasyland, with the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train located in the upper right - the footer formation makes that one pretty clear.  The lower portion of the park's main castle can be seen in the lower right.

The park's Tron themed roller coaster was being enclosed when the photos were taken, so no much of the layout is visible.  The ride is expected to be a highly themed Vekoma motorbike launch coaster.  The right side of the park contains an extremely large building that looks like it will house Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle of the Sunken Treasure.

Here is a direct link to Google's aerial images, and here is an article on Disney and More which details the attractions that can be spotted so far, along with the general resort development.
