Shanghai Disneyland Opens New ‘Zootopia’ Land

Shanghai Disneyland’s Zootopia Land opened on December 20, 2023. It’s the first Zootopia-inspired land in a Disney theme park. The new area features new attractions based on the hit Disney animated Zootopia (2016), shops, dining options for guests, character meet and greets, new-themed entertainment experiences, merchandise, and so much more.

The Shanghai Disney Resort recently opened the world’s first “Zootopia Land.” Based on Walt Disney Animation Studios’ hugely successful film “Zootopia,” the newest themed area within Shanghai Disneyland marks its second major expansion.

Zootopia is based on the 2016 animated film from Walt Disney Animation Studios. It is the first land or attraction based on Zootopia in any Disney theme park. The Disney Resort in China seems to have a wait time listed on the Disney app, giving guests an idea of how long they will have to wait to enter the new land.

Having a posted wait time to enter the newly themed land will allow guests to decide whether or not it’s the right time to enter that area. Having the wait time will enable guests to plan their day at this Disney Resort amid the Holiday season and this new area opening up.
