Shanghai Disney has begun construction on the resort’s as yet unnamed third hotel, a 400-room development inspired by the city’s early-20th Century art nouveaux architecture.

It will meet the site’s design ethos as being “authentically Disney and distinctly Chinese” and will feature Disney characters and stories.

Located on the shore of the Wishing Star Lake, the new hotel will join the 795-room Toy Story Hotel and 420-room Shanghai Disneyland Hotel.

Shanghai Disney opened in 2016, with the Toy Story Hotel breaking ground shortly afterwards and the park announcing a Zootopia-themed expansion in 2019.

Gina Raimondo, US Commerce Secretary visited the park when in Shanghai last week, describing Disney as “American soft power,” as reported by the South China Morning Post.
