Experience a Magical Frozen Winter Celebration at Shanghai Disney Resort
Starting from November 25, guests at Shanghai Disney Resort will be transported into a festive world to experience seasonal offerings, with winter surprises and holiday décor around every corner. Picture-perfect decorations themed to Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Frozen films will line the lands, giving a whimsical wintry feel to every visit, including Frozen-themed “ice” sculptures and a cheery new social wall for festive selfies.
Guests will delight in the myriad of seasonal offerings throughout the resort. This year, all your Disney friends on Mickey Avenue will be celebrating the season with glossy new costumes, spreading holiday cheer throughout the park. To continue bringing magical surprises throughout the year, Santa Goofy will join the Surprise Squad to deliver extra holiday fun to guests.
Every evening on Mickey Avenue, guests can feel the magic of winter by experiencing the nightly “Frozen Snow Celebration”. Christmas trees with shimmering ornaments will set the tone for a dreamy holiday experience, and as one of the most beloved traditions of the holidays, a special tree in Gardens of Imagination will come alight during “Mickey’s Magical Tree Lighting Ceremony”. The Enchanted Storybook Castle and Gardens of Imagination will be transformed into a winter wonderland as Queen Elsa lights up the holidays with her magic. Guests can also head over to Mickey Avenue to meet Mickey, Minnie, Goofy and other Disney friends, as well as watch popular holiday shows, “Happy Holidays, Mickey!” and “Christmas Swing!” throughout the day.
This winter, new seasonal merchandise collections will offer the perfect array of gift-giving choices. The adorable 2021 Mickey and Friends Christmas Collection features cute winter clothing, festive home décor, accessories and more to help every guest customize their own elegant Christmas look. For more gift-giving ideas, the brand new 2021 Duffy and Friends Christmas Collection will roll out to add an extra bit of cuteness this winter. The launch date for the 2021 Duffy and Friends Christmas Collection will be announced at a later date through the resort’s official channels.
No holiday is complete without festive treats and traditional family feasts. This year, all of our guests’ favorite Christmas flavors — featuring some magical twists and additions — will steal the show as guests enjoy a vast selection of delicious themed desserts, dishes, snacks and sips. From family feasts to grab-and-go delicacies at the resort’s cafés and quick-service restaurants, guests will enjoy all the great tastes of the season at Shanghai Disney Resort.
However, the resort’s Christmas celebrations do not stop there. Wandering through Disneytown, guests will encounter an assortment of holiday cheer, including a superb Christmas tree sparkling with lights and ornaments. Starting from December 1, 2021, guests will be invited to meander the streets completing tasks on the Christmas Tree Trail for the chance to win prizes in a lucky draw. On weekends and holidays, Disneytown will also offer exciting entertainment shows that deliver an enchanting holiday experience, while Santa Claus will add some extra magic himself, welcoming guests to take selfies together for the happiest of ho-ho-holidays!
CookieAnn Bakery Café to Bring Extra Sweetness with Delightful Food, Beverages and Merchandise
Set to open its doors on November 25, the brand-new CookieAnn Bakery Café will be one of the most heart-warming additions to the ongoing 5th Birthday surprises at Shanghai Disney Resort. This adorable café found on Mickey Avenue is inspired by CookieAnn’s culinary curiosity, creativity, and ingenuity. Radiating sweet sensations inside and outside, the café’s façade features charming designs that reflect the café owner’s – Minnie Mouse’s – love for baking. Inside, four large pen-and-ink renderings adorn the interior walls, each telling the story of Minnie enjoying heartwarming moments with her beloved friends.
Upon walking through the decorative doorway, guests will discover all sorts of homeware, Disney collectibles, souvenirs and delicious baked goods — all inspired by Mickey, Minnie, Duffy and his friends including, of course, CookieAnn. Guests will not be able to resist the sweet temptation of pastries, cookies, crêpes, soufflé pancakes, creative milkshakes and specialty hot beverages as the scent of freshly-baked goods wafts through the air. The CookieAnn Bakery Café is an unmissable stop for first-time guests and Duffy fans alike.
