Maybe they could make a statue of a big corona virus and two little ones in homage to their mascot. Hidden mickey.

New aerial photo has been posted, showing a bit of 'action' in the new spot where ZOOTOPIA-land is going.

Thanks to DONGDONG for the photo!

It's also neat to see how they've landscaped around the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train Coaster.
At the original in WDW, you can walk completely around it. Here, only on the "front side."
But that means they can surround the ride, with many more trees, than the original. (o:

You don't have to post EVERY SINGLE PHOTO of the Zootopia construction you find online. There has been almost ZERO progress since the last one you posted.

This video shows some very interesting details on how Shanghai Disneyland plans to re-open on May 11th:

That procedure for the temperature screening was very interesting to see. I was wondering how a park like this with so many guests (even when at limited capacity) would manage something like that without massive lines at the gate. Thanks for sharing.

I Love Donkeys!

Thanks very much for that video Robb; this seems like a model for all parks going forward. I would imagine multiple gate resorts would limit repeat reservations to the same gate should capacity limits require that.

I think this version of sitting with your own party makes way more sense than that picture of that other park that had people seated by themselves in every row in alternating sides on that coaster.

I don't see myself going to any parks this year at this point though, I'd rather just wait until we move past all this.

Tickets for the early days of Shanghai Disneyland's reopening are selling out in minutes. Whoo boy, it's going to be very interesting once the U.S. parks reopen.

Yeah it's going to be very interesting. I'm interested to see how Disney (and others) handle passholders, I mean even if passholders have unlimited access but have to have a reservation, and the reservation are all gone in minutes after they're released however far in advance they're available it's realistic that you can have an annual pass and not really be able to use it. Especially if the only time you can go is on weekends.

I know a lot of the seasonal parks have already validated passes through 2021 so it's not as big of an issue, but for the operators that haven't, lets say they re-open in June and extend everyone's passes 3 or 4 months but if you can't hardly get a reservation for the next 5 months because of the capacity restrictions the extension doesn't really help much. Going to be very interesting.

I Love Donkeys!

3 1/2 month shutdown, 30% government attendance limit, and a temporary self-imposed further limit. Immediate sellout for reopening day Monday & first open Saturday, but availability remained for first Friday and second week, it appears. Will be interesting to compare with WDW and others.
