Incredible Video Showing Three Guys Having the Bicycle Ride of Their Life at Shanghaî Disneyland Construction Site!
A faithful D&M reader just sent me a link to a truly incredible-but-real video showing three guys in Shanghaî who decided to have a bicycle ride up to Shanghaî Disneyland construction site and to film everything with a GoPro camera fixed on the head of one of them... providing us the first video ever showing shots of SDL filmed from the ground - and with the music of "The Bear Necessities"! And what happen next is amazing.
The first two minutes of the video show them riding on the roads of Shanghaî in direction to Shanghaî Disneyland, and then, suddenly, the next shot show them near SDL lake where are the Spicy Alley restaurants building - don't ask me how they've been through the entrance site security if there is any as i don't know how.
Then, always riding on their bicycles they ride INSIDE Disney Town - SDL entertainment and dining area next to the park - the building with the green dome structure below is i think SDL World of Disney Store...
The next sequence show them walking up a platform AND the scaffoldings where they meet Chinese workers who apparently are asking themselves who the hell are these guys. Some of them seems to told the three guys that they can't move forward on the scaffoldings, but they succeed to get closer to have a stunning view right above Shanghaî Disneyland Gardens of Imagination - SDL "Central Plaza" with the castle in the background on the left and Adventure Isle on the right. The blue dome of Fantasia Carousel is also visible on the right.
If you think the ride was over, just wait. Then, as obviously they couldn't get closer to the park - i suppose there are limits to transgression (!) - they go back to Shanghaî Disneyland lake...
And there, have a ride on the lake with a motor boat! ...and enjoy great view of the Shanghaî Disneyland hotel...
The video then ends with the boat coming back to the pier.
Now, there is no doubt that Disney is going to get mad when they'll see the video. I hope no Chinese workers will be blamed as they are obviously not responsible - you can see this in the workers reactions when they see the three guys arriving. Nothing bad happened, the three guys were just there for a bit of transgressive ride but the video is also interesting by what it shows of the park construction. Most of the building seems to be built now, but when we look at the Gardens of Imagination plaza which is supposed to look like a real garden in six months or so, it's hard to believe they'll be on time for opening day if the date is not changed.
Anyway, as i'm sure you're dying to see the video here it is, and feel free to leave your comments below! One more thing: in the video, specially on the shot filmed over the Gardens of Imagination the park looks huge but remember that it was filmed with a GoPro camera which has a hyper wide angle, showing things larger than they are in real.
