    An amazing Disney which takes rides up a level
    I loved this park, it’s got that Disney charm but just takes the rides up to the next level. Let’s start with the rides: Pirates of the Caribbean and Tron just take the rides up that notch. Pirates in particular is insane about just how immersive it really is, this isn’t the pirates you’re used to but it just blows your mind as you’re going around. The park is stunning and the theming is beautiful throughout and is topped off by the beautiful castle as it’s centre. Having watched vlogs and seen pictures before visiting, I was a little worried I was going to be disappointed and it wouldn’t have a charm as it was so big; I shouldn’t have been worried at all. The castle is perfect and the area around it is different to other Disney’s which provides great viewing areas for the nightly shows. My only slight negative is, this park is big! It doesn’t have the same charm in some areas as it’s smaller counterparts. For example, Fantasyland is spread out so doesn’t have the same ‘village’ type appearance as others. Also, I can’t wait to see what they do with this park in future. It’s clearly been built with expansion in mind so look forward to seeing how it matures and progresses.

    A magical time was had by all (despite the rain and the cold!)
    Believe it or not, the max we had to queue for any ride was 20 minutes. That was because we went on a rainy day, and the day before Zootopia opened so that kept the crowds away somewhat we think. Having gone to Paris, Hong Kong and LA, this was probably the best experience we had - ever - just because the queues for any ride was so short! Food was better at Universal Resorts Beijing, but the overall experience here cannot be beat. My kids' favourite ride was Roaring Rapids and Tron - Soaring Over The Horizon also rated quite highly too!

    Fun!
    Lots of things to check out no matter which corner we turn to! Enjoyed the concerts and interactive shows immensely (need to understand the Chinese language for a more immersive experience though). Queue was manageable on the day we went.

    Long queues, but still enjoyable
    We visited during a Chinese school holiday, which meant it was very crowded and the queues very long. Food and drink was expensive, For example, £6.00 for a pineapple flavoured ice cream cone. A bit of a faff organising admission passes and fast passes and you must take your passport. We quite enjoyed the visit and obviously, being Disney there is plenty to see , to do and it is pleasant to walk around. At nighttime the best viewing areas get extremely crowded, so find a good spot early and hang on to it.

    Great but too crowded
    The park is awesome like all disney parks. But even on a weekday its too tooo tooo crowded. You end up waiting 40 mins for one ride. Try and book fast track if available and just avoid weekends. Access is also easy by metro and car.

    My personal experience to the magical place
    Good but was quite disappointed with the handling of the queues for the shows by the staff and the waiting period was terrible. People were cutting lies trying to go over you and the entertainment shows were hardly 15 minutes. I would give it an average and Please note that seating areas to rest yourself are very limited. During peak hours it's a really killer. Dining was average to but there was a really good pastry shop in mickeys downtown. There were too many characters as well. Shopping was excellent bur crowd control could be managed better.

    Great time! Zootopia fun!
    It was rainy, hot, and humid so I wouldn't recommend going in June. BUT the air conditioning was excellent once you got into buildings. The Zootopia area is incredible and so cute! I also loved the Jack Sparrow ride and stunt show. So amazing! This is a wonderful park. Loved it!

    A below average Disneyland experience
    A below average Disneyland experience despite excellent hardware. I had fast pass to save time but still felt like I was a semi-finished good in a conveyance belt. My feeling is that 50% of the staffs didn’t make guests feel welcoming and 70% has no smile on their face. Personally I disliked most is smoking. It’s not uncommon to see people smoking in non-smoking areas and the staffs appeared that they didn’t care. This is extremely disturbing for a non-smoker like myself

    Disneyland with certain peculiarities
    The walk to the entrance if by tour bus is half an hour. Once you get to the gate area, there's so many zigzag barriers that even on a not so busy day, you have to walk round and round on what otherwise would only be a few steps without the barriers. This is the first Disneyland I've been to where you're allowed to bring in food. Rides and queues inside are otherwise orderly. I only saw 3 people spitting on the ground (I was expecting more). A few people were smoking outside the designated smoking areas. We spent 2 days here. This can actually be experienced in a day.

We came here straight after Paris Disney which we rated highly. Sadly July is a no to visit this place. It was local school holidays and we went on a Monday. The heat and lack of shade and indoor eating areas did us in. The lines and entrance confusion was a bad start but then the absence of shade in 39 degree heat was a no go. We did two rides and had to leave when we lined up for 40 minutes just to get into a place to eat only to then have to search for a table - after looking for a table for 20 minutes we headed home.

Get harassed by all the illegal toads right infront of the Disney entrance, inside Disney and upon exit to try sell you all toys, service,etc. Super irritating.
The working Crew are a huge turn off during our entry and during the games. Most of the staffs mostly dont live up to Disney name. They are rude and unhelpful. If you speak foreign lauggage here then good luck to you..
I keep seing people either fight, quarrel or police came to escort people out from the park. Disaster.... this will be my first and last to visit the Shanghai Disney. Will not recommend anyone here unless you just wanna come here for Instagram than to enjoy a real theme park ride.

We went on a non holiday week day in June, but the lines are too long. Even to just to get into the park took nearly 40 mins. You can buy speed pass (180 Yuan per person per ride). For a family of 3, you can end up spending a lot of money or wait >1 hour for each ride. Overall I would say it would say it is not worth going. My child had more fun at the Shanghai aquarium.

My recent experience at Shanghai Disneyland left me deeply disappointed and frustrated due to several concerning issues that significantly marred what should have been a magical visit.

Secondhand Smoke Everywhere: Despite designated smoking zones, the park is overrun with inconsiderate visitors who openly smoke wherever they please, subjecting everyone, especially children, to the dangers of secondhand smoke. This blatant disregard for the rules and lack of courtesy from some Chinese guests made navigating the park a challenge and significantly impacted our enjoyment.

Illegal Peddlers: Shockingly, just outside the Disney shops, illegal peddlers openly sell Disney merchandise, directly undermining the integrity of the park's retail experience. It's incomprehensible how Disney allows such activities to persist, tarnishing the authenticity and trust associated with its brand.

Annual Pass Holder Abuse: Throughout the park, we encountered aggressive annual pass holders exploiting their privileges to engage in unlawful behavior. These individuals relentlessly pestered guests to purchase Disney merchandise through them, falsely promising discounts and circumventing proper queues. It became evident that they were exploiting their pass holder status to undercut Disney, all in pursuit of personal gain and the advancement of their membership tiers.

Overall, my visit to Shanghai Disneyland was marred by these unacceptable issues, detracting from what should have been a magical experience. It's disheartening to witness such blatant disregard for rules and ethics within the confines of a place meant to inspire joy and wonder. I sincerely hope that management takes swift and decisive action to address these issues and uphold the standards of excellence that Disney is known for.
