How to Disney: Shanghai Disneyland Resort FAQ (Part I)
Jun 17, 2016 By

Editor's Note: "Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long there is imagination in the world." We wonder if Walt Disney imagined a 5.5 billion USD park in Shanghai. It's a small world after all. The translated article answers your questions about buying tickets and booking hotels among the opening months.

Shanghai Disneyland Report officially opened on June 16. Here are a few tips on purchasing tickets, booking hotels, and a list of items banned in the park.

1) How do I buy tickets? 
Theme park tickets and tickets to The Lion King can be purchased through Shanghai Disneyland’s official ticketing partners. There are over 60 websites and travel agencies that are authorized to sell park and show tickets.

Tickets for June 16 to 18 must be purchased in advanced. On-site ticket booths will not be selling tickets for these days.

There are also discount tickets available online- but not for the first three days the park is open.
  One-day and two-day park passes are available for purchase. A one-day pass costs 499 RMB for adults and 375 RMB for children and seniors. A two-day pass costs 950 RMB for adults and 710 RMB for children and seniors.

2) Can I still book a hotel in the park?
Park hotels will be very busy in June. We recommend you try to avoid opening month if you want to book a hotel in the park.

Shanghai Disneyland Resort has two hotels. Shanghai Disneyland Hotel costs 1650 RMB a night and Toy Story Hotel costs 850 RMB a night. These prices do not include service charges.
There are no rooms available in June unless someone who has booked does not show up for their reservation. There are a limited number of rooms available in July. Many rooms are still available for August and September.

A number of surrounding chain hotels have doubled room prices during the park’s opening weekend. Luxury hotels in the area have also increased their rates during the peak season.
The nearby Hanting Hotel raised its rates for a double bed room from 180 RMB a night to 341 RMB a night. The 7 Days Inn raised rates from 127 RMB a night to 294 RMB a night.

3) Is there anything I can’t bring in?
Selfie sticks are not allowed in the park. Shanghai Disneyland Guest Information states that all photography rods are not allowed in the park. These include selfie sticks and Go-Pro rods. Selfie sticks are banned in the park out of concern for the safety of children in the park, said Disneyland staff.

Other prohibited items include: roller skates, wheelie shoes, skateboards, scooters, large tripods, folding chairs and stools.

Guests must pay attention to their clothes: visitors over the age of 16 are not allowed to wear clothing with cartoon, movie or comic book characters. Long coats are also not allowed.
Visitors must bring their tickets and I.D. cards in order to enter the park. For example, if Mr. Wang pre-orders tickets for his family of three, he must show his I.D. card and an I.D. for everyone in his family to collect the tickets.

Disneyland/world has become such a tired concept, like Mcdonalds. There is a much more interesting Chinese theme park just opened in Nanchang. Can't wait to see that place.

The Shanghai Disneyland is perhaps the cheapest Disneyland in the world, much cheaper than the Disneylands and Disneyworlds in Japan and the US. Expats should take advantage of how cheap it is in the Middle Kingdom and go.

It's the cheapest looking and cheapest built too, everything is so fake and cheap and not worthy of Disney at all. Staff is grumpy and rude because they get paid peanuts. Mascots are not into their roles at all. The skies are grey and the park is super dusty. Tokyo Disneyland and Disney Sea is like years above this crap.
