    Shanghai Disney 2018

    Shanghai Disney opened on June 2016. It is located not too far from Pudong airport. Line 11 goes directly there from Jiatong University. Took me about an hour to get there from Jiatong University station. We went on a Monday, hoping it may be a bit quieter, but were sorely mistaken. You have to line up to get through security which checks your bags. It took us over an hour to get through security. Once through you have to wait again to get your tickets. Download the Disney app to get access to a map in English and fastpass access to some rides.

    The cost to get in was 360 rmb on off peak times, and 499 rmb for peak times (weekends and holidays)


    Watch for the people who will cut in front of you..lol. I had to elbow a few to keep my spot.

    Here we were waiting for the ride.. it was a boat where we go through waterways in pitch black and see many pirates and 3 D scenery/virtual reality which makes you think you are in the high seas as part of the pirates of the Carribean. .. pretty damn cool. Was too black inside to take pics on the ride.

    The ride only lasts about five minutes or less, but it is pretty black and you have your head down although you can look up a bit.. no rails and you just go up and down and sideways.. very very fast.

    After the ride you come out with lots of Tron cars and things to see.

    Credit where credit is due ... great trip report.























    What were the toilets like?

    The Chinese don't have a good rep for that outside of China.

    Good point. The toilets.

    Or did they just hang toilet rolls from random trees and walls

    ^great pics as usual, TB, thanks! I went to HK Disney a few years ago and posted pics too, but pics are gone due to last year's photofacket purge.

    Similar to your experience, it took ~1 hr to queue for the rides, as we didn't have the fast pass (I was still a newbie traveller & I didn't know about it). It was Xmas break and the lines were super long, even for the Winnie the Pooh train!

    Since it was in HK, ppl were disciplined while lining up. No pushing, elbowing or queue jumping. No spitting either. There were free water stations all around where you could refill water bottles. Toilets were clean too, as was the general area - lots of trash bins.

    Prices of food & drinks were sky high (for us, since we were poor backpackers). However, the experience was totally worth it. We weren't able to go to all the places since we were dog tired by early evening. My sis went to Tomorrowland to take pics, while I gave up & just rested on a bench. I got to chat with a Filipina grandma (on a nearby bench) who was there with her son & teenage grandkids. Lots of tourists from PI that time, as it was Xmas break.

    For those with kids, it's worth going to a Disneyland, just for the experience. But it would be better if they're maybe 7+ y.o. since some of the rides have height minimum requirements.

    Would I want to visit a Disneyland again? YES!

    Cheers, TB. More pics please.

    btw, terry also posted pics of HK Disney - the thread's buried somewhere, for anyone interested.

    The toilets were surprisingly clean and also had a choice of 10 squatters or 5 sit down toilets to choose from. Usually it is one normal sit down toilet, so I was impressed. Not a big fan of squatters personally.

    Just a friend, and only one pic, but won't post it. lol. He's off in a few months to teach in Bangladesh.. lucky him. lol.


    ^Thanks Katie.. I heard that the HK Disney is the smallest Disney out of all of them. I guess it makes sense since when you look at how compact HK is. Glad you enjoyed it. I do want to get to either the Tokyo Disney or the Florida Disney at some point.. must be the kid within.

    The whole place was very clean and I didn't see any people spitting surprisingly. There were lots of toilets around and drinking water stations as well. This Shanghai Disney is huuuge and you have a lot of walking to do to see everything. Toy Story Land is fully slated to open later this month. The pics I showed of the Mr. Potato Head is part of Toy Story, but they are doing massive expansion of that part.

    He could do a thread on Bangla's disneyland equivalent. You might be jealous.

    Nice start, I'll give it two thumbs up. Maybe I'll put it in the bucket list for someday.

    What does a hotel cost ( usd please cause I'm too lazy to use my conversion app) near the park.

    I did a thread a while back on Universal Studios Orlando Florida. Amazing place. The fast pass was 100 usd but knocked the wait time to minutes from what averaged about 45min or so. Towards the evening I could get off a ride and if I liked it, as I did all of them. I could just walk to the entrance and get back on.

    Good stuff so far, keep us gawker's in the loop.

    ^^I might, Dhaka is where he is going..haha.

    ^Thanks Fish. I'd love to see the pics of Orlando and the HK one if they are still available to view. The fast pass was $100, but how much was it to get into the park? I assume the fastpass was separate?

    I'd say check booking.com for hotels near the park.. there is so much variety in price.. but generally you are looking around $100 or more for something decent.
    I looked not long ago as I was thinking of staying in a hotel the night before my trip, but decided it was easier to just go by subway even though I was up at 630 am.


    A few more pics..

    Inside of the castle, so beautiful.



    This is a ropes course type of attraction, but it was closed for maintenance.. I was so disappointed.

    A good report TB with some pretty good photos, I must say though, on a personal note, that I cannot for the life of me understand the attraction of such fakery.
