This summer, as Shanghai Disney Resort celebrates its second anniversary, new summer fun and seasonal offerings will roll out across the resort as part of their “Splashing Summer” event.
Starting June 16, Shanghai Disney Resort will host a new summer atmosphere for guests to enjoy the new summer entertainment, food and beverage offerings, shop for new merchandise and discover new activities in Disneytown.
Cool Zones will be found throughout Shanghai Disneyland, where guests can beat the heat and rest in fun and refreshing misty areas.
Part of the new Disney/Pixar Toy Story Land will be transformed into a water-blast-world with Famer Al’s Splash Around, which will help cool off guests as well as keep them entertained. Thought the day, some of Andy’s toys will host an interactive water play performance that will immerse guests in the new world of toys.
The popular stage show, “Summer Blast,” will return to the stage at Enchanted Storybook Castle, with many performances held each day. The show features classic Disney characters, water, energetic performers and several new surprises.
Duffy’s Splashing Pre-Parade will delight guests before they see Mickey’s Storybook Express this summer. This pre-parade, led by Duffy and ShellieMay, will give guests cool spritzes of water as they, and dancers with hand-held soakers, travel down the parade route as they cool off guests.
This year, Gelatoni and StellaLou, Duffy’s friends, will also be a part of the parade fun on an all-new float. Guests can also join in on the fun with two grand marshal cars that will be part of this summer celebration.
