The World’s First Zootopia-themed Attraction Opens at Shanghai Disneyland this December

Disney and Zootopia fans rejoice!

Zootopia gives us an exciting glimpse into a world where animals live and work just as humans do. Moreover, in the film, we see what the city of Zootopia looks like, and guess what? We are about to see that in real life!

You read that right because Shanghai Disneyland is set to open the world’s first-ever Zootopia-themed attraction on December 20, 2023.
