Clock tower at Shanghai Disney Store Plaza

A new 60 foot tall clock tower has been added at the Shanghai Disney Store Plaza. The Glockenspiel-style clock tower was designed by Walt Disney Imagineering. It provides bells and musical shows every half hour and hour. The hourly show includes a Disney character parade.

Disney says the tour features Mickey Mouse clock faces. The tower has statues and animated figures from the Disney, Pixar, Marvel and Star Wars universes. It also has visible gears and mechanisms through its glass windows.

Bob Weis, president, WDI, says in a statement, "We hope the Shanghai Disney Store clock tower will become a new landmark for this great city, providing a preview of the magic that will soon arrive with the opening of Shanghai Disney Resort."
