World's largest flagship Disney store set to open in Shanghai on May 20

World's largest flagship Disney store set to open in Shanghai on May 20

Get ready: the world's largest flagship Disney store is set to open in Shanghai's Lujiazui financial district on the afternoon of May 20.

More than 50 workers are now working in overdrive to complete construction of the establishment as half of the participating stores have already moved into the site, jfdaily reports.

The 5,000-square-meter Disney Store will feature a state-of-the art retail space and an outdoor plaza with Disney-themed landscaping, according to the Walt Disney China.

The actual retail space covers just one fifth of the area, and will offer Disney-related products, such as toys, clothes and accessories. The rest of the area will occupied by the outdoor plaza, with the capacity to host exhibitions and entertainment facilities.

"The flagship Disney store will feature the largest and most diverse collection of Disney products by local and international designers," said Stanley Cheung, executive vice president and managing director of Disney China.

Visitors will also be able to track the progress of the currently under-construction Shanghai Disney Resort, which is scheduled to open in the first half of 2016. Maybe.

We think we can already make out the queue to the store forming in the distance.

Shanghai's Disney flagship store to be more expensive than Hong Kong, Tokyo shops



By Sharon Choi
By Shanghaiist in News on May 19, 2015 4:00 PM


The new Shanghai Disney store, also the largest flagship Disney store in the world, may not have opened yet, but people have already begun complaining about the exorbitant pricing of items at the shop compared to other Disney retailers around Asia.

The store, occupying 5,000 square-meters of space in the Lujiazui business district, is set to open tomorrow, and has already generated a good deal of buzz among Disney fans. According to reports, the flagship retailer incorporates Chinese elements not only in its design, but also in its products. Offering over 2,000 various Disney products by local and international designers, 99 percent of the items can only be found in this store.



According to reporters, products from the Shanghai store are relatively pricier than those found in the Hong Kong and Tokyo flagship stores. For example, a medium-sized Minnie plush toy costs 175 yuan in Hong Kong, but 220 yuan in Shanghai; and an iPhone 6 phone case costs 147 yuan in Tokyo, but 220 yuan in Shanghai.


Maybe it's the gold shoes?

Apparently the store is expecting goods from the Shanghai retailer to be in pretty high demand. Items with the words "Disney Store Shanghai" printed on them are considered limited editions, and customers are only allowed to purchase one limited edition product per visit.



The store will feature art retail space covering just one fifth of the area, while an outdoor plaza with Disney-themed landscaping will occupy the rest of the space. It's set to open its doors tomorrow, so maybe avoid 180 Fenghe Lu and surrounding areas. We're expecting lines for days.

Shoppers wait in kilometer-long line as largest Disney store opens its doors in Shanghai



By Sharon Choi
By Shanghaiist in News on May 21, 2015 9:00 PM


A kilometer-long line of shoppers waited outside the Walt Disney Co's flagship store in Shanghai yesterday before the retailer had even opened.



Some of the customers actually stood in the queue for around three hours before entering the store, the largest of its kind in the world, located in Lujiazui.

"We have already been to the Disney park in Hong Kong," a mother in line told the Straits Times. "But my daughter loves the princesses in all the Disney cartoons and insisted on coming when she heard the store opening."



She probably wasn't thrilled to find out that the products at the Shanghai store are going to cost her 50 to 70 more yuan than those at the Hong Kong shop. Oh well.



Disney fans were greeted by more than 2,000 products, including limited edition clothing, phone cases, bags and plush toys. The most photographed attraction in the store, however, was the Storybook Castle, where a golden peony, China's national flower, was installed on the top.



This rush is just a teaser ahead of the (maybe) 2016 opening of the Disneyland theme park and resort, where we will be expecting even longer lines.

The interest might not last long as PRC people never grew up on Disney stories/cartoons.
