Shanghaî Disneyland Mickey Avenue Facades Revealed


Shanghaî Disneyland Mickey Avenue will be the entrance street of the park, and will replace the usual Main Street U.S.A. We've seen previously some artwork or models but never before Mickey Avenue facades were revealed so clearly than on the two pictures below. The first picture below is a large panoramic showing the left side of the street, ending by the Carthay Theater on the side of SDL Gardens of Imagination.



And the next picture shows the right side of Mickey Avenue. In this case the last building on the left is the one close to Gardens of Imagination. Definitely click on each picture to see them in full size so you'll be able to explore them in details.

Thanks again for the Shanghai updates every time!

I think I don't dislike these facades, they look actually quite good.
What I don't like is the character signs on the buildings, it really looks cheap and not very imaginative. I hope they will make it a little bit more like Buena Vista Street, but these are just drawings of course.

Is that it will we see more of the Park facades including the Hotels and Disneytown?

I actually like the facades along the avenue, but still have a problem with the entrance. It mimics the train stations of the other magic kingdom theme parks but doesn't have a train. A Disney magic kingdom without a railroad just doesn't seem quite right to me.

Great job covering the progress of SDL. It's always appreciated. Thanks, Alain!

Can't wait to see it, but starting to really question the design. This streetscape is some fugly mishmash. The theme is clearly "cartoon", not a nostalgic time/place. A 'station' with no train? Why? There is no berm. The castle looks funky so far, in shape, colors and textures. Tomorrowland apparently will have vast empty spaces one must walk through to reach the attractions. Fantasyland has lots of odd dead spaces and awkward transitions, but Small World ride facade. The whole west side looks amazing though. Smelling more and more like the problematic Hong Kong park design than a full fledged perfection Paris opened with.

@Jake, Not all the shops are labeled in French, just the section themed to Pixar's Ratatouille.

This looks like a mix of Toontown and Buena Vista Street. I'd rather have a Main Street, which looks much nicer and more pleasant to be in. I also think that a Train Station without a train is very strange!
