Here is how Shanghai Disney Resort describes “Disney Zootopia Comes Alive”:

Zootopia’s groundbreaking new show will have its residents come to life in the windows of Zootopia Park Apartments in the metropolis, leaning out the windows to chat and interact with each other, just like a real life neighborhood! This ambitious take on Disney storytelling is a living embodiment of the land – let’s take a closer look at how it all came together.

As Disney Live Entertainment Creative Director Jeff Conover alludes to in the video, the experience is reminiscent of “The Muppets Present…Great Moments in American History,” which ran at Magic Kingdom from 2016 to 2019. However, “Disney Zootopia Comes Alive” will be free-flowing with lots of opportunities to change for different seasons and events.
