Disney Description from June 2016:
Guests who venture into Treasure Cove will discover the first pirate-themed land at a Disney park. Created especially for Shanghai Disneyland, it’s home to a wild, colorful crew of scoundrels, always on the hunt for fun, action and high-seas adventures. Rich in detail and storytelling, Treasure Cove is a raucous collision of color, sights and songs, blending cultures and countries with pirate frivolity, mayhem and personality.
The story of Treasure Cove dates back to the 17th century, when piracy was a thriving enterprise in the Caribbean. In Disney lore, this Age of Piracy featured a band of seafaring rogues who chased legendary treasures, fought monsters and battled each other, always with a humorous glint in their eyes.
Guests become immersed in a pirate’s life as soon as they arrive at the entry, the first of five neighborhoods at Treasure Cove. From there, they will explore Shipwreck Shore, Fort Snobbish, Landlubber Landing and the Village, each with its own charm and personality. The land features a mix of architectural styles, along with two giant ships, pirate-themed restaurants and a fun, water play area. Guests of all ages will enjoy the epic scenes in Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle for the Sunken Treasure, as well as the up-close action and exciting stunts in “Eye of the Storm: Captain Jack’s Stunt Spectacular” at El Teatro Fandango.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle for the Sunken Treasure
Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle for the Sunken Treasure is a spectacular indoor boat ride that takes guests on a new rollicking adventure with Captain Jack Sparrow to steal the priceless treasure of Davy Jones. Seamlessly blending Disney storytelling and state-of-the- art technologies, the attraction features three large media domes, projected effects, lifelike animated figures, theatrical sets and sophisticated lighting to dramatically take guests on, over and even under the sea on a nautical adventure. With a new, highly controlled ride system used for the first time in Shanghai, the boats spin, travel sideways, and even move backwards to create a highly dynamic experience. Gusts will encounter fearless pirates, mermaids and even a kraken. Disney's patented Audio-Animatronics technology and recent advancements in robotics bring these pirates to a new level of realistic performance.
Guests will experience a Caribbean island the way pirates first did – from the water – as they paddle real canoes through the waters of Treasure Cove. Along the way, they enjoy the sights and sounds of the land. With the only propulsion coming from the guests and their paddles, the ride is quiet and stealthy, except when they must dodge attacks from onshore pirates shooting water cannons. Friendly and knowledgeable captains lead each canoe and point out scenic highlights along the way.
‘Eye of the Storm: Captain Jack’s Stunt Spectacular’ at El Teatro Fandango
The elaborate and exciting stage production, “Eye of the Storm: Captain Jack’s Stunt Spectacular,” makes its global premiere at El Teatro Fandango. Starring Captain Jack Sparrow, “Eye of the Storm” brings fantastic stunts and swordfights, spectacular scenery, and stunning visual effects straight to the audience. Along with plenty of swashbuckling, the show presents light-hearted humor, a raging storm and a remarkable adventure, as Captain Jack fights off a Royal Admiral in a whirlwind finale, which in itself is a first-of-its-kind achievement in technology and storytelling.
Shipwreck Shore is a water play area located onboard the remains of a shipwrecked French galleon and the surrounding beach. Children and Pirate “wannabes” will explore and play “make believe” in an interactive zone where they spray, splash, squirt and even climb amid random bursts of water, sound effects and animated elements. Shaded seating areas provide a comfortable viewing area for adults and parents to spy on all the fun.
One of the largest restaurants in all of Shanghai Disneyland, Barbossa’s Bounty is a celebration of the free-wheeling pirate life. A lively, aromatic, colorfully ramshackle “grog shop,” it reflects the personality of its owner and namesake, Captain Hector Barbossa. Featuring Asian barbecue from pirate chefs who love to show off their cooking skills in the demonstration kitchen, Barbossa’s Bounty also offers guests the opportunity to enjoy their meal in the themed dining room of their choice. Guests may also choose the extraordinary experience of dining inside the thrilling attraction, Pirates of the Caribbean: Battle for the Sunken Treasure.
