Shanghai Disneyland Enchanted Storybook Castle concept art

A new video has been released showing off the plans for Shanghai Disneyland's Enchanted Storybook Castle, which will act as the centerpiece of the new park.

Enchanted Storybook Castle will be the largest castle built at any Disney park to date, and will house a walkthrough attraction, Once Upon a Time Adventure, that tells a story featuring Disney princesses. Guests will be able to explore the castle via an elaborate archway, which leads to a winding staircase to the top.

The video, posted by Orlando Attractions Magazine, shows the plans for the interior of the castle:

The castle will act as the starting point for a 10-minute ferry boat trip to other landmarks in Shanghai Disneyland. It will also host a meet-and-greet area for Disney Princesses, as well as a Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique clothing store.

Shanghai Disneyland is expected to open in 2015, and is set to be one of the most unique Disney parks built to date. Its design will break the traditional "Magic Kingdom"-style mould, featuring an 11-acre entry area in place of the usual Main Street USA. The surrounding resort will be Disney's fourth outside of the US, and will be 57% owned by the Chinese government.
