Here is a picture of one of many hand sanitizers around the park.
The man in the background is smoking in one of the few “smoking areas” in the park.

This building is the “Professional Building” which is home to the ANIMATION ACADEMY, (#3 in Guide map) where you learn to draw your favorite Disney characters. Shows are performed in Cantonese.





The Opera house is home to ART of ANIMATION (#4 in Guide Map)









A detail on the window

Inside the ART of ANIMATION is the Toy Story Zoetrope which spins at high speed and with a strobe light has an amazing effect. This photo doesn't do it justice.



There are a few pieces of art displayed.

But the main showpiece is the ‘blue sky’ future expansion plans for the park, displayed in a 1 :100 model and artist drawings of the new rides and attractions. The three new lands which are under construction now, are shown in some detail and I’ll come back to the future display and show the details after we finish with what is in the park now. It is well worth the wait.

OK, now this is the photo I decided was worth taking to remind everyone to “Wear Sensible Shoes”... although what most impressed me was the way this young woman appeared to float along the footpaths. Wearing comfortable clothes can be Beautiful.





This is the "Town Square Photo" shop where you can go to see the photos that the cast members take of you when you are with the characters.

Another look around Town Square





This is in the center of Town Square and where you line up for "Character Greetings". Mickey and Minnie.
There is no Flagpole here, the USA Flag flies on top of Town Hall.

Thats the Jungle River Cruise on the left



Mother and Baby Elephant in the Jungle River Cruise as seen from the train. I'll point out this location again when we cover the Cruise itself.
