Shanghai Disneyland has opened its gates for a six-week trial run in preparation for its June 16 opening. Before you get too excited, the trials are only open to Disney staff, partners, and stakeholders and their relatives and friends - and if you've not had an invite by now, then we're sorry to say you're probably not going to get one.
The South China Morning Post interviewed several park attendees after the first day trial and one highlighted long queues as one of the main features of the new park, while another mentioned that although the number of visitors were limited, he still had to wait an hour for a ride.
'Everybody had to queue for two hours,' said Weibo user @一只乔仔 after a visit. 'My legs were almost breaking.'
‘Almost all the rides require an hour of queueing at least, but there are fast passes that you can obtain for certain rides that are marked "fast" on the map.'
According to estimates, a one-day visit to the resort for a family of three will cost at least 2,600 yuan, which covers admission fees and three meals plus shopping, while a two-day trip will require no less than 6,000 yuan in total.
According to the receipt from the Stargazer Grill at Tommorowland, a hamburger or fried chicken meal with fries and coke costs 75RMB while a kid’s meal of grilled chicken fillet and rice costs 60RMB.
