Summer days can be very hot in Shanghai, so the Shanghai Disney Resort recently announced plans for their Splashing Summer season, that runs from June 16th until September 2nd. During the second anniversary of the newest Disney Resort they will create a brand-new summer atmosphere for guests to enjoy all the cool new summer entertainment, food and beverage offerings, shop for trendy merchandise, and discover new activities in Disneytown.
First of all, the popular Summer Blast show will return in front of the Enchanted Storybook Castle with a number of performances held every day. The show features energetic performers, classic Disney characters, a fun dose of water, and several new showery surprises.
Duffy’s Splashing Pre-Parade is also set to delight guests as they gather to witness Mickey’s Storybook Express this summer. The pre-parade procession, led by Duffy and ShellieMay, will give guests a welcome bout of cool spritzes as they, along with a host of dancers with hand-held soakers, traverse the parade route cooling guests off.
Cool Zones will be ready throughout Shanghai Disneyland where guests can escape the heat of summer and be energized in the fun and refreshing misty areas. This really is a Splashing Summer!
Part of the brand-new Disney•Pixar Toy Story Land will be transformed into a water-blast-world with Farmer Al’s Splash Around designed to cool off guests. At several points throughout the day, a number of Andy’s favorite toys will host an interactive water play performance designed to fully immerse guests in the new world of toys.
This summer, guests will find many cool drink offerings throughout the resort, including the StellaLou Fantasy Dreamer served up in a StellaLou souvenir cup, Mickey honey pomelo slushes in Mickey souvenir cups, Toy Story Souvenir Sips and more, like Donald’s Special Cooler, set to roll out later this month. See here the Mickey slushes and the Dondald cooler:
New kiosks desserts, like the Stitch spiral sundae and the mango frozen yogurt sundae (see below), or the Mickey marshmallow brownie and Olaf strawberry fruit tart at Remy’s Patisserie.
The Toy Box Café is also serving up new dishes like braised seafood rice and roasted pork ribs and wheat grass with potato chips. This while Mickey & Pals Market Café, Pinocchio Village Kitchen and Wandering Moon Restaurant feature fresh additions, like tomato beef brisket rice, soup noodle with prawns and salt duck leg with pork noodle soup.

Royal Banquet Hall’s new seasonal menus include gourmet appetizers and entrees—with a special lobster menu, plus sweet finishes like the StellaLou frozen ice cake. Guests can also enjoy new a-la-carte additions in the Disneyland Hotel at Aurora, and summer holiday beverages at Lumiere’s Kitchen.
New Summer Merchandise
Shanghai Disney Resort will offer more than fifty new, exclusive seasonal merchandise products and limited-edition pins.
The tropical, beach-inspired collections feature Mickey and friends with summery seaside images. Guests can find the exclusive new apparels with Disney Character Images, stylish accessories such as the popular Millennial Pink Minnie sequin headband.
This Splashing Summer also sees an all-new Duffy and friends summer merchandise line. It includes Duffy and ShellieMay plush, a ShellieMay headband, foldable shopping bags, ShellieMay and StellaLou tees and more.
In Disneytown, the Chinese equivalent of Disney Springs and Downtown Disney, there are also activities to celebrate the summer. During the 2018 FIFA World Cup, a football camp will be held every weekend from June 23 to July 15 where guests can come and have a training.
Once the World Cup comes to an end, the area will be transformed to allow guests to work out and practice Body Combat and Yoga in the cool evening air between July 21 and September 2. During the same period, on Friday and Saturday, a lawn movie night will be held to display some of your favorite Disney movies out on an open-air screen.
Looks like this summer is going to be fun in the Shanghai Disney Resort! Which of these Splashing Summer offerings would you like to see at Walt Disney World?
