A Peek at Shanghai Disney

Thanks to S.W. Wilson and his design blog
Theme Park Concepts, we now have some educated speculation about the new attractions in store for Shanghai Disney. Wilson has analyzed and "layered" together five officially-released images from Disney, including a property map, a fly-around video of the park's castle, and a computer model from the D23 Disney enthusiast group.

Wilson highlights some of the following attractions for the new park:
  • 2 hotels, including a luxury and value resort
  • a circular-raft river ride akin to Kali River Rapids at Animal Kingdom
  • an all-new Pirates of the Caribbean attraction, with an adjacent stunt show
  • a jazzed-up Storybook Land Canal Boats
  • Tron-themed launched Vekoma motorbike coaster in Tomorrowland
In the interest of respecting intellectual property, we urge you to check out his blog for a more in-depth analysis of the park's potential new layout and attractions. His impressive research can be found here.
