The countdown to Destination D23 is on, and Disney is set to release exciting new updates throughout the week ahead of the event. We were expecting to hear new information about the Zootopia-themed land that is coming to Shanghai Disney Resort, and it has finally arrived! Let’s take a sneak peek at what guests in Shanghai can expect to see when Zootopia opens, including Zootopia: Hot Pursuit, a brand-new attraction and unique entertainment to merchandise and fully Zootopified food and beverage experiences.

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.

That attraction sounds pretty fun! I love the unique experiences that we will be able to enjoy as part of the new Zootopia-themed land, and the ride is only the beginning.

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?!

The attention to detail extends to the shopping district, where you can find Fashions by Fru Fru, right by the entrance of Mane Street. Get it? Mane Street? So clever! You’ll also find Zootopified food and beverage offerings at Jumbeaux’s Cafe. The new dining location is an ice cream shop, familiar to fans from the movie, where all sorts of delicious treats await you!

This expansion will mark the first time the world of the Walt Disney Animation Studios film Zootopia comes to life at a Disney park.” Says Disney Parks Blog, though rumors have been circulating that elements of the film may be introduced into Disney’s Animal Kingdom in place of DinoLand U.S.A. Could we see something similar to the details shared by Disney Parks Blog in Walt Disney World?


The exciting news doesn’t end there! Later today, Tuesday, September 5th, at 11 a.m. ET, we will be covering the grand virtual reveal of the all-new Disney Cruise Line vessel as part of the world premiere of Disney’s Unlocking the Disney Treasure: Adventure Awaits Onboard Disney’s Newest Ship. I’m so excited to see all of the unique design features of this new ship.

Disney is also expected to release more details about the brand-new addition to Hong Kong Disneyland’s new land. World of Frozen will debut as the world’s first “Frozen”-themed land in November. “World of Frozen will invite guests to join in on a Summer Snow Day celebration commemorating the day that Anna saved Elsa with an act of true love,” Disney Parks Blog writes, as Frozen fans around the world look forward to a special look at this immersive new space.
