Shanghai Disney Resort's “Garden of the Twelve Friends" Add Disney Characters & Chinese Zodiac

In celebration of the Chinese New Year, Shanghai Disney Resort has released information about the park’s “Garden of the Twelve Friends” on the Disney Parks Blog. Here this garden will spotlight the twelve animals in part of the Chinese zodiac. Each animal has been represented by a specific Disney character.

Disney Parks Blog states, “The Garden of the Twelve Friends blends Disney storytelling with traditional Chinese culture, while honoring the role the Chinese zodiac plays in local daily life and offering some terrific photo opportunities.”

This new year marks the Year of the Sheep and here we can see that the lambs from “Mary Poppins” have been selected.
