BREAKING: New Attraction Announced for Shanghai Disneyland, Possibly Roller Coaster

The Shanghai Disney Resort has announced to shareholders that they are building another new attraction on the heels of the recently finished Zootopia land and amidst the construction of their 3rd resort hotel.

As the resort enters the Year of the Dragon, resort shareholders and management continue to show optimism about Shanghai Disneyland. Recently, the resort began initial preparation work for construction of a separately themed attraction to be located within Shanghai Disneyland, adjacent to Zootopia. The project work is at the initial planning stage and resort shareholders and management look forward to providing more updates as work progresses in the future.

A rumor emerged several months ago that a new roller coaster may be on its way to Shanghai Disneyland. It may be the very project that is being announced here, but only time will tell.

As stated above, the attraction will be located in an expansion pad located just to the right of the Zootopia area. It will not be a part of the land, but likely based on a different Disney intellectual property.

Shanghai Disney Resort also provided an update on their upcoming 3rd resort hotel:

In August 2023 leaders from Shanghai Disney Resort’s joint venture shareholders broke ground on construction work for the resort’s third Disney-themed hotel. This week the hotel development project management team completed piling work, a key phase in advance of the start of superstructure construction. Located on the shores of Wishing Star Lake, when completed the 400-room hotel will provide guests with even more accommodation options.

It is unknown when an announcement about the attraction’s content could be made, but it may be as early as this summer at D23: The Ultimate Disney Fan Event, taking place in Anaheim during August 9-11, 2024.
