Exciting New Dining and Shopping Experiences Announced for Disneytown

Postby HostDave » Wed Feb 03, 2016 3:06 pm

Today, Shanghai Disney Resort announced more new tenants coming to Disneytown when the resort opens on June 16, 2016. New high-profile tenants, many of them representing first entries into China, include The BOATHOUSE®, Hot Toys, Build-A-Bear Workshop, and an exciting new concept restaurant from world-renowned chef, Wolfgang Puck. Disneytown will ultimately feature nearly 50 tenants that will offer a world-class shopping and dining experience for resort guests.

Shopping, dining and entertainment areas are key features of Disney resorts around the world, giving guests an integrated resort experience alongside world-class theme parks and resort hotels.

Located next door to Shanghai Disneyland and within walking distance from both Shanghai Disneyland Hotel and Toy Story Hotel, Disneytown will feature a high-quality, diverse mix of retailers and exciting, sophisticated restaurants for families and convention guests alike. Together they will create a variety of experiences and offerings in each of Disneytown’s five distinct districts – Lakeshore, Marketplace, Spice Alley, Broadway Boulevard, and Broadway Plaza.

“Over the past few years, Shanghai Disney Resort has worked closely with exciting Chinese and international brands to develop unique dining, shopping and entertainment experiences for Disneytown,” said Philippe Gas, general manager of Shanghai Disney Resort. “Disneytown will be a popular destination where guests can find amazing new experiences with their family and friends.”

Like all of Shanghai Disney Resort, Disneytown will be authentically Disney yet distinctly Chinese. The shopping, dining and entertainment district has been designed by an international creative team to demonstrate the perfect blend of Disney traditions and classic Chinese and Shanghai design and cultural elements, including traditional Shikumen architecture paying homage to the heritage of Shanghai. The creative team has conducted extensive research about Chinese culture to tailor the area for Chinese guests in every detail, from colors to symbols.

Guests visiting Disneytown will encounter fun and unique Chinese experiences around every corner such as, murals, story artwork, graphics, and architectural ornamentation design featuring classic and contemporary Chinese and Shanghai elements.

Disneytown will also feature several world-class Disney shopping experiences, including a World of Disney Store, Marketplace specialty shop and Spoonful of Sugar confectionery. The 3,000-square-meter World of Disney Store stands out for its scale, design and range of products, and will offer thousands of items inspired by the unique elements in Shanghai Disney Resort. The comprehensive assortment, including unique Disney apparel, toys, stationery, collectibles and gifts, will include many products especially designed in collaboration with local artisans for China. Not just an alluring destination for shoppers, the World of Disney Store will also offer one of the most technologically advanced Disney retail experiences in the world. The store will be located in a nostalgic “railroad roundhouse” building that has been especially designed to pay homage to Walt Disney’s love of trains, a passion that inspired his design of the Disneyland Railroad that travels around the original Disneyland in California.
