I was very fortunate to receive this "Shopping and Entertainment Area Plan" from a "Friend of Luke and the Temple of Fun". I would like to express my gratitude to you, though I have yet to know your name.
This plan reveals a lot of new information. Let's take a closer look.
As you may see, there are a theater, a movie theater, and a World of Disney Store. They form a mini "Downtown Disney".
What really excites me in this plan is the decoration of the ground. At the lower part, it writes "Forest" and at the top it says "Sky". The two are connected by "Qi Xi Bridge" and "Galaxy Lighting", as you can see in the center. Now you may not know what "Qi Xi Bridge" means. Well, it is a folk lore in the Chinese culture, in which "Niu Lang" and "Zhi Nu", a loving couple, meets one another once a year at the bridge. (As illustrated in the picture) The day that they meet is called "Qi Xi" Festival and is celebrated extensively in China. (To learn more, please head to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Qixi_Festival)
The concept of land to sky is extended in the lower left corner, where Pebble Restaurant and Shell Restaurant is located. This could be the "sea" area as it is indeed near the shore.
Now if we look at the big picture, the shopping and entertainment area will be elaborately decorated under the concept of Sea-Land-Sky (from bottom to top). And I am thrilled to learn that Chinese elements will be incorporated in the design as well. Disney is really working hard to present a unique experience to the Chinese guests.
What is also interesting is that at the side of the theater, we can see "Club 33". Does this mean Shanghai Disneyland will have its own version of "Club 33"?
