Shanghai Disneyland News

Today there was a new Press Release from Disney about Shanghai Disneyland and there was some exciting things announced! The first thing announced is that the park will open on June 16 2016! That is 155 days away when writing this. To keep track there is a countdown timer on the right hand side. The press release also covered a few more aspects as well as releasing a few photos of the park.

  • Shanghai Disneyland Park
From the press release and other information see we know that there will be six lands in the park. Some lands will be familiar like: Fantasyland and Tomorrowland while other lands will be brand new like: Adventure Isle and Treasure Cove. There will be the similar rides from other parks like Peter Pan's flight or Pirates of the Caribbean while also having new rides like TRON Lightcycle Power Run or Roarin' Rapids.
  • Disneyland Hotel & Toy Story Hotel
Shanghai Disneyland will open with only two resort hotels. The Disneyland Hotel will be more themed to look like mansion while the Toy Story Hotel is designed to immerse you into the world of Toy Story.

  • Downtown Disney
Disneytown is the name of the Shanghai version of Downtown Disney. There will be a lot of similarities between this version and most other ones but one large difference is that Disneytown will have a Grand Theatre. In the Grand Theatre there will be the first ever production of the Broadway version of The Lion King in Mandarin! There will be a World of Disney store in Disneytown as well but focused more toward Shanghai Disneyland exclusive merchandise.
  • Wishing Star Park
Different from any other park, Shanghai Disneyland will include something call a Wishing Star Park. The Wishing Star Park will be a 40-hectare area that has a walking path going around a large oval lake. Along the way you will run into beautiful gardens. This would be a perfect place to go watch the sunset or the fireworks if you wanted more distance. 

That is all that is known right now but there will be more updates as we find out more!

Cast Member Issued Pins

Goren1818 signing on for another post! This time I will be adding to the blog's newest genre: Pin Trading. This portion of the site is sponsored by Pintradingdb.com. Check it out! It's a great site. Anyway, my main collection consists of cast member issued pins. What is a cast member pin you ask? A cast member issued pin is a pin issued by the park to the cast member. These are usually worn with the cast member's costume. Cast member issued pins are not to be confused with hidden mickeys or cast exclusives. There are a few kinds of cast member issued pins. The kind I have the most of are cast member service pins. For every 5 years a cast member works, they get a pin. These pins go all the way up to the 45 year pin! SOMEONE HAD TO WORK FOR DISNEY FOR 45 YEARS!

Fun Fact: For the 25th year pin there was a pin of Tinkerbell bent over. It was soon banned for being revealing. You can find that pin below.

Another category of these pins are attraction costume pins. These pins are worn as part of a cast member's costume for a specific attraction. For example, the monorail badge!

The last category contains my holy grail pins! The infamous D-pins. These pins are shaped like a D for Disneyland. They are very rare and are only worn by tour guides, hosts, or ambassadors.

Well that sums up this week! I hope I inspired you all to go out and create your own unique pin collection! That's all folks. This is Goren1818 signing off.
