Shanghai Disneyland Reviews
they just give you one look then say oh your race is blah blah blah. The service is good but their friendliness to adults of African descent isn't the best. more »
Firstly, you need to understand that if you are going to almost any theme park it will generally be very busy. Usually I always expect Disney to be busier and this was no exception, would I have... more »
The best place to visit in Shanghai if you are a Disney fan and love love love the rides and the characters like anything. Although the only problem you will face is the language as at some point you will find their native Chinese language usage but overall the experience is just overwhelming. Love their musical and theatrical show and the way they have created the castle and different characters rides. Will suggest you to please go on a weekday as it's going to be extremely crowded on a weekend. Lots of cafes and restaurants are also inside but we preferred to avoid them due to the halal food concerns but you can have popcorns and biscuits. In the end it's just magical 😍
The happiest place in Shanghai! It’s the official Disney palace in China. The mouse kingdom has transformed the industrial area in Pudong, Shanghai into a wonderland. There are 2 Disney Resort hotels surrounding the area: Shanghai Disneyland Hotel and Toy Story Hotel. Both are not directly attached to the park like Grand Californian. But as usual their occupancy rate is 90% in average. Normal park opening hours is 8:30 a.m. - 10:00 p.m. This park embraces new technology as part of their flexibility. For example, FastPass can only be used and reserved through the Shanghai Disneyland Resort app, and it’s only available once you enter the park. They even have a timer for when you can take another FastPass. Shanghai Disneyland has 7 themed areas: Mickey Avenue (the mouse king really loves your wallet), Gardens of Imagination, Fantasyland, Treasure Cove, Adventure Isle, Tomorrowland, And Toy Story Land. They are planning to build Zootopia Land sometimes soon. In the morning you can find Mickey and friends eager to take pictures with you around Mickey Avenue. Whereas there are several places specially designed for characters such as Marvel Captain America and Spiderman. The morning dance at the Enchanted Storybook Castle is pretty neat and happened twice in the morning. The parade is fun and happened twice in a day. But the craziest line time is for the 8:30 p.m. fireworks show. As for the rides my favorite has to be Pirates of the Caribbean, just an amazing mixture of water ride with projection mapping story telling plus the sunken boats And the battle against the Kraken. No other pirates ride in all other Disneyland around the world comes close. And of course I must say Tron for the motorbike and rollercoaster fans out there. I went three times in a day for this wonderful ride in Tomorrowland. Honorable mention is the one and only Adventure Isle’s Camp Discovery Challenge Trail. I don’t think this attraction will be allowed in any other Disneyland, it’s a rather dangerous one. Soarin is also available here, but the line is crazy. My suggestion is either you do a FastPass early or go in line early for Soarin. The food in Shanghai Disneyland is absolutely amazing for Disney standards, especially the Chinese cuisine. Don’t forget to grab a bite of Turkey Leg here, they are so juicy compared to other Disneyland.
