Disney has released an incredible 6 1/2 minute video on how the most recent Disney park was created in Shanghai and how the team kept the Disney magic while keeping a very Chinese look and feel to the park. Disney went from start to finish with a promise, “Authentically Disney, distinctly Chinese”, I love this and think they have delivered on this promise and then some. Check out the video below and see if you agree:
The video features an in-depth look at the build process alongside interviews with Disney President and CEO Bob Iger and many other members of the team that helped make this 5 year project a reality. Bob Weis who oversaw the project from the Imagineering Team is also present in a few interviews throughout the video.
There is so much detail in the video, I love the fact that Disney has included the city flower at the top of the main tower of the castle. I cannot wait to go and visit Shanghai Disney in the future, let us know what your favourite part of the park is in the comments below!
