Along with movie costume displays, there were also promotional areas at the Expo set up for upcoming films such as the animated Zootopia:
As well as this awesome prop vehicle from Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy:
But for a park fan like me, one of the most exciting areas to see was the Shanghai Disneyland pavilion!
Inside there were displays showcasing some of the exciting features of this new park opening in 2016.
Being the TRON geek that I am – the TRON attraction set for their Tomorrowland particularly caught my eye (can we get this awesome-looking experience in the U.S. parks too, please?!):
As did this lovely model of the park’s Enchanted Storybook Castle:
But of course the attraction I was most excited to see previewed was the Alice in Wonderland Maze! This park attraction will be the first in the world (aside from The Mad T Party show) to be based on the Tim Burton version of the story and its characters!
Here is a look at some of the Cast Member costumes for the area as well as some models of sculptures for the attraction:
There was also a pavilion dedicated to Pandora – The World of AVATAR coming to Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom. But the line was fairly long to enter and I have very little actual interest in the concept of this new land (personally, I’d’ve much rather had another continent like Australia represented or the long-rumored Beastly Kingdom fantasy-animals area), so given the time constraints, I did not go inside.
Does this peek into the Shanghai Disneyland pavilion make you want to travel to see the newest upcoming Disney Park? Or do you prefer to stick with whichever one is your “home” park?
Stay tuned for more photo features from this past weekend’s D23 Expo coming to Mousertainment this week!
