Castle at Disneyland Shanghai
Genius Tips For Visiting Shanghai Disney Resort For The First Time
Shanghai Disneyland Park is very different from other Disney parks. For example, its layout differs from most other Disneyland-esque parks.
Shanghai Disneyland also lacks a lot of the rides that the other international parks have, including Small World, Haunted Mansion, Jungle Cruise, and Space Mountain.
English is more limited at Shanghai Disneyland, so be prepared to use a translation app. You'll need a translation app that works explicitly in China, like Baidu.
Limited English
Be patient when interacting with cast members if you don't speak Mandarin. English is widely spoken in Shanghai, but things can still get lost in translation.
Duffy the Disney Bear is a big deal at Shanghai Disneyland Park. September is even Duffy Month, with all new merchandise, snacks, and shows to celebrate him.
For those unfamiliar with the lore of Duffy, he originated in Tokyo as Mickey Mouse's teddy bear. He and his pals come to life to spread the joy of friendship everywhere they go.
Shanghai Disneyland can be visited in one day, but it's better to allow yourself 2 or 3 days to fully experience everything, especially the attractions unique to Shanghai.
2-3 Days
