At Last a Fantastic HD video of Shanghaî Disneyland Adventure Isle Roaring Rapids Showing the Impressive Q'araq Creature Audio-Animatronic
At last a fantastic HD video of Shanghaî Disneyland Adventure Isle Roaring Rapids raft ride showing the impressive Q'araq creature Audio-Animatronic, now at last working! Apparently WDI is using a Kuka robotic arm for the move of the creature head which would explain why it is so fluid. Enjoy, and thanks a lot to SoCal Attractions 360!

Shanghaî Disneyland Week-End Update : Early Artwork Confirms That Toy Story Land Was Envisioned For SDL
It's the week-end so i have a Shanghaî Disneyland update for you, a short one this week but great anyway thanks to Eric, a faithful Disney and more reader, who sent me this never seen before Shanghaî Disneyland artwork, most probably early artwork. More or less everything which exist currently is already there with a bit of differences but the interesting part is that it shows the Toy Story land which is not part of the park on opening day but could be added very soon. I let you find it in the artworks, click on each to see them in big size!

Disney France unveiled the beautiful French poster above for Disney's Moana ( called Vaiana in France, don't ask me why ) which i think is, esthetically speaking, better than the American one below, though not bad too.

Shanghaî Disney Resort Dedication Ceremony happened this morning with Bob Iger, China's Vice Prime Minister, the Mayor of Shanghaî and others WDC execs and China officials. The presence of all these officials is undoubtedly the reason why the park was opening to normal guests at 12pm today instead of 8 or 9pm, for security measures. It was raining a little bit, but according to China's Vive PM rain means good fortune when you launch something, so everything is fine. You have below the video of the full ceremony as well as screen captures, and now Shanghaî Disneyland is officially open!
Also, as it is the case in all Disney theme parks a dedication plaque is now in place in Shanghaî Disneyland, and Bob Iger revealed what is written on it:
TO ALL WHO COME TO THIS HAPPY PLACE, WELCOME!
SHANGHAI DISNEYLAND IS YOUR LAND.
HERE YOU LEAVE TODAY AND DISCOVER IMAGINATIVE WORLDS OF FANTASY, ROMANCE, AND ADVENTURE THAT WILL IGNITE THE MAGICAL DREAMS WITHIN ALL OF US.
SHANGHAI DISNEYLAND IS AUTHENTICALLY DISNEY AND DISTINCTLY CHINESE. IT WAS CREATED FOR EVERYONE. BRINGING TO LIFE TIMELESS CHARACTERS AND STORIES IN A MAGICAL PLACE THAT WILL BE A SOURCE OF JOY, INSPIRATION AND MEMORIES FOR GENERATIONS TO COME.
ROBERT A. IGER
CHAIRMAN AND CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER OF THE WALT DISNEY COMPANY
DEDICATED JUNE 16, 2016"

Shanghaî Disneyland Grand Opening Celebration Gala will happen tonight for thousands of VIP guests and medias, so stay tuned on Disney and more for the first pictures! As for me, guess what, i’ve finally found back my passport this morning! ...but now it’s too late to be on time in Shanghaî, the fare don't allow to re-reschedule the flight at an earlier date than the one i rescheduled yesterday, etc… so it’s really frustrating… Grrrr…
Also, plenty of others SDL posts await you on the next page after the DLP update below so make sure to check them!
