Well, dang it, I posted it, in the wrong Disney Park Thread....

Oops. 🤭

See: Hong Kong Disneyland Thread, instead.


But I decided to (at least) post this overhead night shot of Zootopia construction. Thanks to whoever took this shot.

Found this recent shot of ZOOTOPIA construction that somebody took and posted (thanks).

The iconic buildings of each district of Zootopia are looking good there, from what can be seen from within the park.

Great colours in that cluster of Zootopia Districts' Iconic buidlings.

Another two photos of ZOOTOPIA construction, posted on a Chinese (probable) Disney Fansite. I am guessing.

First one taken from their cell phone, I think. And the second one is the top part, enlarged for a better look. 🐰🦊🦒🐭


A cell phone shot, yes? No?


Nice close up on the top part of the above. Very nice. Thank You to "You-Who-Took-These-Shots".  📷

And this is the first time, I am seeing the bottom right corner of the Land. Possible Meet & Greet area, opposite a place to eat?

Looks like they're starting to test some of ZOOTOPIA's lighting, etc. Awesome!

Thank you to "You Who Took These Photos"! Both of you!  🦒



Looking real great, there.

Just found a great, night time overhead shot of ShDL, especially showing ZOOTOPIA with the work lights on.


Thanks to "You Who Took This Shot" in the lower right hand corner, there.

A new photo has been posted, showing a part of ZOOTOPIA, itself, now built! And compared to the original artist's concept .... it looks damn good!


The original art for a "street" in ZOOTOPIA.


And voila! Looks really great. And THANK YOU to you who took this photo. Much appreciated. ^

Disney has unveiled new details about the Zootopia themed land at Shanghai Disneyland, including the main attraction, Zootopia Hot Pursuit!



Save the day on Zootopia: Hot Pursuit Attraction

Get ready to become a rookie police officer at the Zootopia Police Department (ZPD)! Set after the Walt Disney Animation Studios film’s timeline, residents of Zootopia are gearing up for a big concert celebrating Zootopia Day featuring Gazelle.

When you walk into the ZPD for orientation, you’ll be greeted by Officer Clawhauser. Suddenly, an alarm sounds and you’ll be whisked away to an emergency briefing delivered by Chief Bogo where you’ll learn that Gazelle has been kidnapped — on the day of the anticipated concert!

Before you know it, you’ll be assigned to back up Officer Judy Hopps and her partner, Nick Wilde, now officially a police officer, in an action-filled police chase. Here you will traverse across Zootopia’s iconic terrains, sliding across the ice of Tundra Town, prowling for fugitives through the streets of Sahara Square, sharing a too-close-for-comfort encounter at Mystic Springs Oasis, and plummeting from the canopies of the Rainforest District all in pursuit of Bellwether and her gang to track down Gazelle.

Meet and interact with many of your favorite characters from Zootopia

One-of-a-kind live entertainment experiences await, bringing Disney Animation’s Zootopia and its residents to life! Catch a glimpse of many of your favorite characters, including Fru Fru and her father Mr. Big, along with Koslov the polar bear, Flash the sloth, Yax the yak, Duke Weaselton the weasel, and even the Hopps family who appear to interact amongst themselves (and sometimes even with you!) throughout the day from the windows of Zootopia’s beautifully iconic buildings.

You’ll also be able to take a selfie with Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde at the Zootopia Recruitment Station. Who wouldn’t want a photo with this fun duo?!

Familiar treats and shopping awaits

We wanna try everything on offer at Zootopia! So many delicious Zootopified food and beverage offerings await at Jumbeaux’s Cafe, an ice cream shop that fans of the movie may recognize.

Enjoy a sweet yet tart paw-shaped Disney Zootopia popsicle, as seen in the Walt Disney Animation Studios film, grab a Chocolate Marshmallow to fuel your park adventures, or try Officer Clawhauser’s favorite donuts!

After satisfying your taste buds, why not indulge in a little shopping? Head into Fashions by Fru Fru, owned by resident fashionista, Fru Fru, which is right by the entrance of Mane Street. Shop for the perfect gifts for family and friends amongst hundreds of different themed products including the Zootopia Cute collection as well as fun new headwear, apparel, accessories and more. Inside the store, you’ll also find two special areas themed after Yax and Duke Weaselton.

This is looking really good! I checked some other sites and found more concept art of "Hot Pursuit."

And this artwork below, looks a-ma-zing, if what we see here is what they've created and built.

Disney has announced that Zootopia will be opening on December 20th, 2023!



We are so excited to share that Zootopia at Shanghai Disney Resort will be opening on Dec. 20, 2023! Mammals big and small are invited to come experience the incredible land and all the details that make the beloved film come to life. Each element of the new land – from food and beverage, entertainment, merchandise and more – has been specially designed to immerse you in the mammalian metropolis. Let’s go wild and explore six ways to step right into the Walt Disney Animation Studios film, “Zootopia,” at Shanghai Disney Resort.

1. Immersive Zootopia Stories Around Every Corner

Prepare to step into the vibrant city atmosphere of Zootopia like never before with storefronts along the streets that tell a unique story. Stroll by the Beaver Dentist, where you can listen to the sounds of patients having their teeth worked on through the window. At the Hibernation Hotel, a modern “pod” style hotel where Zootopia’s bears and other residents hibernate, you can even hear them snoring from their cavernous rooms. Don’t miss the Arctic Spa, specially designed for the polar bears, where you might overhear Mr. Big’s henchmen humorously discussing their plans to attend tonight’s Zootopia Day Concert.

2. Innovative New Attraction to Ride at Zootopia

In Zootopia: Hot Pursuit you will be greeted by Officer Clawhauser. The boisterous cheetah frequently pauses to talk to the newest rookie police officers or rave about Gazelle and the big concert tonight. Chief Bogo then orders his new rookies to board cruisers to back up Officers Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde and from there the adventure begins! From sliding across the ice of Tundratown to flying off the track onto the busy streets of Sahara Square, enjoy thrilling turns, spins, slides, and “drops” in this family-friendly attraction on a mission to rescue Gazelle from her kidnapper, Bellwether. This experience will surprise and delight your wild side as you have your very own experience in this sequel to the movie!

3. Land Details Found Around Zootopia

Your journey begins the moment you step foot (or hoof or paw) on Mane Street. This street is lined with a variety of storefronts perfect for any sized animal that might find themselves perusing the streets. You will then be led to the civic plaza, Savannah Central, exactly where Judy Hopps once found herself when embarking on her great Zootopia adventure! Savannah Central’s fun, colorful, and animated advertisements are played on the large Zootopitron screen, showcasing the energy and vitality of this modern city. Behind this is the stunning skyline of Zootopia, which was originally inspired by a variety of city skylines in the animated film. At Zootopia Central Station, a large metro train can be seen passing behind an upper-level decorative stained-glass window. The train comes and goes as it picks up and drops off animal commuters, just as it did in the film.

If you pay attention, you’ll even spot animal-inspired street modifications like “Cubs at Play” warning signs and vehicle height clearance signs to remind long-necked citizens, like giraffes, to be aware of their height when entering tunnels and underpasses, along with roads and streets that are accommodating of all animals of all sizes.

4. Zootopia Merchandise to Dress from Head to Paw

In Zootopia, you can discover a wide array of unique merchandise upon the opening of the land, including the Disney Zootopia Cute collection, which will offer even more enchanting items and options.

Fashions by Fru Fru, owned by Zootopia’s favorite fashionista and Mr. Big’s daughter, features vibrant colors and flourishes that match Fru Fru’s outgoing personality. Inside, you’ll find two special areas themed after Yax and Duke Weaselton, bringing more characters from the film to life. You will also discover over 200 products, many designed exclusively for the new themed land, including headwear, apparel, accessories, and much more, allowing you to dress up from head to paw! Collections will feature beloved characters like Judy Hopps, Nick Wilde, Flash, Clawhauser, and more, with careful consideration of each character’s species, personality, appearance, and story. You’ll also find items themed after iconic scenes in the film, such as Fashions by Fru Fru Toy Bricks and Tundratown Building Toy Bricks, making them perfect souvenirs or gifts for friends and family.

5. Unique Food and Dining Experiences

From Zootopia-themed desserts to snacks, drinks and more, there is a sweet and savory safari right at your fingertips!

Take a visit to Jumbeaux’s Café which is adapted to welcome animals of all sizes! It has even made accommodations like a lower take-out window for smaller customers, fashioned directly into the façade’s original elephant-sized door. Sink your teeth into a paw-shaped popsicle inspired by the ones made by Nick Wilde in the film!

There’s also the Chocolate Marshmallow, which mimics the size and look of the Jumbo-pop that Nick tricks Judy into buying, but re-imagined as a raspberry-flavored marshmallow. If you’re looking for something on the smaller side, there’s the Mini Chocolate with the same look. What’s more, Officer Clawhauser’s favorite donuts will be provided in two different sizes, meeting the needs of all animals, big or small. Upon opening, there will even be offerings right out of the film, such as the Disney Zootopia Blueberry Pie created by Gideon Grey, the fox; the Carrot Shaped Lollipop that will remind everyone of Bunnyburrow, and more treats to come. 

6. Characters Brought to Life in New Atmosphere Show 

Not only does Zootopia have attractions, food, and so much more, unique entertainment is on the way too! Imagine walking down the street and hearing the residents chatting with one another from their windows. You may even strike up a conversation with Flash the sloth or the Hopps family! This atmosphere show will bring the characters from the film to life in an innovative way that you can only find at Shanghai Disney Resort.

Get ready to embark on this exciting journey into the world of “Zootopia” at Shanghai Disneyland, where adventure and fun await beginning on Dec. 20, 2023!

Zootopia has been open in Shanghai Disneyland for about a month now, the queue in there is crazy with a 2 hour entrance wait just to enter and maybe an hour long queue just to play the newest ride.

It will definitely be crowded in this attraction zone for awhile as the Chinese goes crazy for Nick and Judy. Would you wait this long just to get in?
