Shanghai Disneyland Hotel
Located across the lake from the theme park, theShanghai Disneyland Hotel is the resort’s signature hotel. It features a full range of amenities, including themed dining experiences, a gift shop, a fitness center and an indoor swimming pool, as well as banquet and meeting facilities and a wedding pavilion.
The hotel’s architecture, characterized by vibrant shapes with dynamic and undulating lines, was inspired by the Art Nouveau movement. The Art Nouveau theme appears in the hotel’s architecture, graphics, wall and window coverings and even furniture – all accented with an overlay of Disney wonder.
Disney storytelling begins as guests arrive in the porte cochere, where bronze statues of Mickey and Minnie in formal attire welcome guests to the hotel. Throughout the seven-hectare hotel property, guests will find statues of characters from Disney animated classics such as The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella and The Lion King.
One of the special Chinese features at Shanghai Disneyland Hotel will be a fountain with a large, unique centerpiece — a glass peony blossom with classic Disney fairies. The peony is the flower of China and this piece, produced in Shanghai, will be one of the largest sculpted, solid glass flowers in all of China.
Special touches include amenities that cater to Asian customs, such as slippers and high-quality tea bags, and carpets with floral designs and patterns easily recognized by Chinese guests. Special features include King Triton Pool, featuring characters and motifs from The Little Mermaid; Hakuna Matata Oasis, a jungle-themed water play area inspired by The Lion King, and the Cinderella Ballroom, designed specifically for weddings.
Delicious, Disney-themed items will be on the menu at four dining locations. Guests may dine with Disney Characters at the buffet-style Lumiere’s Kitchen, or enjoy a fine dining experience with breathtaking views of Shanghai Disney Resort at the Aurora restaurant. The Bacchus Lounge and Ballet Café, both inspired by the Disney animated classic Fantasia, will offer bar service and quick-service meals, respectively.
Toy Story Hotel
The theme of the Toy Story Hotel is inspired by the Disney•Pixar series of Toy Story animated films. In addition, the design of the hotel’s figure eight “infinity” layout draws strongly upon Chinese symbolism and myth. In China, the number eight is considered to be very lucky, and clouds represent the coming of good fortune.
Toy Story Hotel has two sections, the Sheriff Woody wing and the Buzz Lightyear wing, which, when viewed from above, suggest an infinity symbol. This is a reference to Buzz Lightyear’s dream and brave motto: “To infinity and beyond!”
The open-air Woody Courtyard features a larger-than-life Woody aboard his trusty horse Bullseye, and an oversized Buzz Lightyear greets guests in the Buzz Lightyear Courtyard. The hotel also features a counter-service restaurant, a water-play area featuring the Toy rocket and the Aliens, and a gift shop inspired by Lotso, the hug-loving bear character from Toy Story 3.
For dining, guests will enjoy the Sunnyside Café, named for the pre-school in Toy Story 3. The Sunnyside Café offers tasty meals and a special Chinese touch in the décor. Floating above the guests will be Chinese-style kites, featuring Toy Story characters. The kites are inspired by traditional kite craftsmanship from Weifang in Shandong Province, the famous kite city in China.
Guests will be entertained throughout their stay, even in the elevators. In the Woody Wing, they will hear Woody and Jessie providing greetings on each floor. Buzz Lightyear and the Aliens do the same in the Buzz Lightyear Wing.
