    Through 8/18 (Saturday) at the entrance to two and half hours in 端naku, hot, morning shade without crowded in, but can't afford to back down, coming up here worked hard not because. Coming into the ping latency average one and a half hours no cooler than the popular attractions I saw lined up 20-30 minutes, but only the fan-? FASTPASS because they wanted to ride only on Tron, I finally took a night was the best ride. Restaurant and not crowded and we were pretty lucky. Just outside the 45-degree day is nonambulatory, I enjoying two hours at the restaurant. Day Parade and stayed open, but was scarcely to secure passage of the people in the crowd's night parade.

    Aside from the castle in the center and the name (but not content) of a few rides and lands this park is very unique by Disney standards. I have been to Disneyland several times, Disney World over ten...  more »

    Disney love, with my family (my mother, aunt, brother and cousin) went to the Shanghai Disney wish! Again, all Japan is not only in the attraction is surprised with was the best. Share my experience for Shanghai Disney is still small, so heart-so don't attractions Japan and exactly the same thing I don't think everything was amazing. In particular, Caribbean, amusement, Tron! Tron is too interesting a ride 4 times more than twice each took. This is a must! Ride all attractions are quite conquered so I continued for two days, but the value is! FP is all my runs. So the morning Tomorrowland and Fantasyland are rattles, off the beaten path! Went to pick up my first day I was increasingly severe congestion. To become FP without very crowded the day seems to be from. Made my day was free in the park with rain forecast, so my still was FP until night. So Tron and the Caribbean around early or wait 10 minutes. On the day I'd said. -On the greeting various blogs, but all vacant. My recommendation is 1 mickygreeting. In the morning the next day I went to see the evening of one day Mickey, of course they were happy it is like was being the first of the day went to Mickey greeting Mickey fine 200%. service spirit 200%. in happier! Following groups never come so I can hog Mickey! Or say in greeting Chinese pm Simpl...

    Worst theme park I've ever been to, and definitely the worst Disney. Very poor crowd control, hardly any shows, no parades. Longest waiting times I've ever seen, and not because the crowd is that huge, just badly managed. 1 hour security and entry process into the park... People losing tempers and fighting with the staff... Queue jumping and all sorts of aggravation that doesn't happen elsewhere... If you're in China go to other theme parks. If you live elsewhere, go to the other Disney parks. Give this one a miss. Its the worst use of a day you can possibly make.

    Disneyland was fun in Shanghai but it was very crowded on a weekday in the middle of a school year, I was actually surprised. The park opened at 8 we got there at about 9:30 and they were already out of fast passes on some of the popular rides. So you need to get there early to be sure that you get your fast passes if you don't want to wait in long lines. The rides were fun and the light show at the end was nice. We did more waiting in line then we did riding rides. The Chinese people will cut in line and just push passed you if you let them so you need to be Stern and not let people push past you.

    This park is great. Very well designed with lots of attention to detail. Entrance is difficult but once your in, it's fine. Long ride lines if you don't buy fast pass. It is a Disney park so it is always going to be busy and crowded.

    I am a non-Chinese speaking American and so I was not able to fully enjoy all the park had to offer. That being said my group fully planned to leave early and there were so many things that drew us in that we stayed the full day. The entertainment is great and I loved my time there. The roller coasters aren't amazing, but the park was great.

    Fun day out with the kids. Recommend the parade and to go and visit Darth Vader. Queues to get into the park can be pretty long as you need to go through security and then go to the ticket check. Took 1 hr to get into the park.

Where to stay in Shanghai

As one of China's top commercial cities and tourist destinations, Shanghai offers accommodations that range from backpacker-friendly haunts to five-star hotels in futuristic skyscrapers. Few world cities can rival Shanghai in terms of room variety, services, and prices, and all types of travelers can easily find suitable options based on their preference and budget limitations. Puxi and Pudong remain probably the best options for most foreign visitors, as these areas offer both modern hotels packed with amenities and older establishments loaded with traditional charm.
