“Dream Garden” Debuts at the Tenth China Flower Expo

Shanghai, May 21, 2021
 – With the official opening of the Tenth China Flower Expo in Shanghai today, we are pleased to announce that the expo’s “Shanghai International Resort Garden – Dream Garden” has officially opened to the public. Located in the International and Enterprise Pavilion, the “Dream Garden” is centered around a model of Shanghai Disneyland’s Enchanted Storybook Castle. Brimming with colorful blossoms, the 710-square-meter “Dream Garden” was designed by Shanghai Disney Resort and Walt Disney Imagineering Shanghai and jointly created by Shanghai Shendi Group and the resort, blending Disney and resort zone elements with traditional Chinese culture. In celebration of the unveiling of the “Dream Garden”, a special ceremony featuring unique performances will be presented at the expo on May 27, 2021 – further sharing the magic of Disney with visitors.

Centered around a stunning floral model of Shanghai Disneyland’s Enchanted Storybook Castle and surrounded by key components of Shanghai International Resort, the entire Dream Garden is shaped like a flower.
Just like the real Castle, the castle model in the “Dream Garden” is crowned with a golden finial featuring a Chinese peony flower together with cascading stars, evoking the optimism that with belief and just a little magic, dreams really can come true.
Visitors to the Dream Garden can also enjoy floral sculptures of some of their favorite Disney characters, including Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald, Daisy, Chip ‘n’ Dale, located under the “Once Upon a Time Archway,” and inspired by the “Once Upon A Time Adventure” experience at the Enchanted Storybook Castle in Shanghai Disneyland.
The surrounding floral and topiary arrangements depict other major areas at Shanghai Disney Resort, including Disneytown – the resort’s popular dining, shopping, and entertainment district – and the picturesque Wishing Star Park, where guests can embrace nature and enjoy the outdoors.
The entire garden is inspired by the traditional Chinese gardens found along the Yangtze River Delta. Chinese paper-cutting techniques are also represented in the design of the flower windows, and plants and flowers originating from China, including the Chinese rose, Camellias and Nandina, are highlighted throughout.
