Yi Ou Lai Shopping Village

As we all know, Shanghai Disneyland will have a Shopping / Dining / Entertainment area similar to Downtown Disney when it opens. However, recently I discovered that besides that, there will be another shopping area in the resort.

This second shopping area will be named "Yi Ou Lai Shopping Village", and it is developed by Shendi Company (which owns and operates the resort) and Value Retail. I have also found a construction plan for this shopping village.

Unlike Downtown Disney, it seems that this area will not feature a Disney theme, but more of a European style established by the company "Value Retail".






Looks great isn't it? It seems that Shanghai Disney Resort will have a lot to offer when it opens next year! As we approach the opening day, more information will be released by the company. So, stay tuned!

  3. It should do well, its in the new FTZ (Free Trade Zone) and inside the new Shanghai Disneyland resort, where a lot of people will be visiting. Plus, its an outlet mall, which means prices are usually less for name brand products. Its also a project of the same French company that partnered with Disney at Disneyland Paris, to build a similar outlet mall. Do you think mainland Chinese shoppers like "outlet malls"? The same company opened a similar mall in Suzhou, China last month.

    1. I believe that Chinese shoppers will definitely adore this. They like outlets for the variety of brands and relatively lower prices. In fact, when I was visiting some of the outlets in the US, I was wowed by the number of Chinese tourists.
