Bob Iger, CEO of The Walt Disney Company, and executives from Shanghai Disney Resort and Shanghai Shendi Group joined characters Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde, along with special guests like Jared Bush, co-writer and co-director of the Academy Award®-winning Zootopia, in commemorating this exciting expansion.


“For 100 years, The Walt Disney Company has been entertaining, thrilling, and inspiring audiences and fans through exceptional storytelling that transcends generations and geographies,” said Bob Iger, CEO of The Walt Disney Company. “Our popular Zootopia film  continues to delight fans across the globe, especially in China, and we’re excited to give guests at  Shanghai Disney Resort a chance to interact with the stories and characters they love in  innovative new ways when they visit this spectacular new land.” 


Zootopia transports guests to a living, breathing mammalian metropolis when they set  “paw” on Mane Street. Spanning years of development, cast members and Imagineers from around the globe along with artists from Walt Disney Animation, collaborated to build this dynamic city that immerses guests at every touchpoint. Guests will enjoy new experiences that seamlessly blend Disney’s signature storytelling and creativity with groundbreaking, state-of-the-art technology.


One-of-a-kind experiences found only in Zootopia 

The opening of Zootopia includes the debut of the all-new attraction, Zootopia: Hot Pursuit, where guests can “hop on” the all-terrain cruiser powered by a trackless ride system in an action-filled chase through Zootopia’s different districts. The attraction features the latest in Audio-Animatronics technology, reflecting a new generation of fully electric systems, to enhance the entire experience throughout, from guests entering the land, to “hopping on” a cruiser in hot pursuit.  


In the windows of Zootopia Park Apartments, a lineup of animal residents will interact with each other and guests throughout the day, appearing from time to time, in this unique atmosphere show. Guests will not want to miss out on visiting Fashions by Fru Fru, a merchandise store owned by Fru Fru, Zootopia’s best-known fashionista, or enjoying delicious food and beverage offerings from the land’s casual walk-up dining options.  


Jumbeaux’s Cafe, inspired by the original Jumbeaux’s Cafe in the Walt Disney Animation  Studios film, is where guests can find a variety of treats, including Chocolate  Marshmallows and Officer Clawhauser’s favorite – The Big Donut. The tasty signature frozen paw-shaped Disney Zootopia Pawsicle from the film can be found at Zootopia  Market, a cluster of four colorful shacks offering a variety of treats.
