Shanghai Disney Resort kicks off Disney Earth Month with nature exploration activities
Shanghai Disney Resort has kicked off its Disney Earth Month event this year by adding a series of conservation- and nature-themed activities throughout the resort.
Starting today through April 22, guests who visit Shanghai Disney Resort can enjoy several “Celebrate Earth” activities in Shanghai Disneyland, Disneytown, Wishing Star Park and the resort hotels.
As a highlight for this year’s event, Shanghai Disneyland launched the all-new “Nature Exploration” program in the park’s Garden of Imagination themed land, which has been transformed into a floral wonderland as the warm weather returns to Shanghai.
As guests young and old enjoy the flowers, trees, shrubs and blooms throughout the land, they can also explore nature by searching for butterflies, learning about the plants around them, and sharing ideas on how to protect their environment. Nature Exploration Guides are available from Cast Members in the Garden of Imagination, which will help younger guests learn how to care about animals, nature and the environment through their daily actions.
Once guests successfully complete their exploration mission, they will also have the opportunity to be chosen as the grand marshal for the park’s parade, Mickey’s Storybook Express.
After its debut at the park last year, “Xiao Tui,” the magical talking recycle bin, will return to Shanghai Disneyland this April, and talk with guests about conservation and encourage them to take action in their daily lives.
Guests can also discover a range of nature- and spring-themed interactive activities at Wishing Star Park and Disneytown. From April 13-22, Disneytown will host a “Celebrate Earth Spring Carnival,” featuring fun and engaging environmental activities with unique themes, like low carbon action and animal habitat conservation efforts.
This year’s Outstanding Ranger Team from WWF China’s 2018 Tiger Habitat Ranger Competition will also pay a visit to Disneytown on April 16 to share the importance of wild tigers in China. During this time, a Springtime Lawn Party will be hosted on weekends for families and friends to come together and connect with nature.
On select Saturdays in April, Wishing Star Park will offer guests a scenic walk around Wishing Star Lake, where they can take in the park’s natural greenery. At the end of their guided tour, guests can take time to pot plants that they get to take home.
In addition, guests staying at the resort hotels can experience nature-friendly additions to their stays, including environmentally-themed activities in the children’s play room at Toy Story Hotel, and a morning nature walk around the Wishing Star Park adjacent to the Shanghai Disneyland Hotel.
