Top Things to do at SHANGHAI DISNEYLAND in China + Travel Tips, How to Get There & More!

Top Things to do at Shanghai Disneyland China Cheap Tickets Travel Tips and How to Get There

Growing up, I always dreamed of visiting Disneyland. As a kid, it's an ultimate dream for me to have a memorable holiday in Disneyland with my family and friends. Unfortunately, we are not rich and our family cannot afford to travel abroad to have a Disneyland experience. That is why, I promised myself that when the time comes that I'll be given the chance to visit Disneyland, I will grab the opportunity, and will enjoy and have an amazing time.

Spending a day at Disneyland Park is like fulfilling a dream. My first time to visit Disneyland was when we had a trip to Tokyo last year. It was then followed by a visit to Hong Kong Disneyland late last year. I enjoyed them both and I feel so happy that I finally had a wonderful Disneyland experience.

SHANGHAI DISNEYLAND TIPS AND REMINDERS


To fully enjoy your Shanghai Disneyland Park experience, here are some useful tips and reminders.


Don't forget your passport. Remember to bring your passport when visiting Shanghai Disneyland. This will be required when entering the park for verification at the gates.

Arrive at the park early. As the only Disneyland Park in mainland China, expect huge crowd at the park. Be sure to arrive as early as 07:00 am and be one of the firsts on the line. The gates open at 08:30 am.

Buy tickets in advance. Shanghai Disneyland limits the sale of park tickets each day. During our visit, no tickets are sold at the gates. Good thing we booked our park tickets online in advance.

Buy discounted tickets via Klook. Since we already booked our tickets online, we just went straight to the entrance gate upon arrival at the park. We just showed our passports and we got to enter the park. This also saved us a lot of time. Book discounted Disneyland tickets here.

Download the Shanghai Disneyland Park App. This app provides offline map, information on the waiting time on each ride, parade and show schedules, and more. You can even get a fast pass using this app!

Plan your trip well. It’s impossible to experience all the rides in just one day. So, better plan your trip and prioritize the rides, attractions and shows you want to see and experience first. Take advantage also of the fast pass by getting the pass from the app or on-site. If you want to explore Disneyland Shanghai more, you may also consider booking a 2 days Disneyland Pass.

Bring extra clothes. There are rides and attractions that you might get wet. Bring extra clothes or you can just buy a Disney shirt if ever you got wet.

HOW TO GET TO SHANGHAI DISNEYLAND THINGS TO DO

HOW TO GET TO SHANGHAI DISNEYLAND?


Shanghai Disneyland Park is located on the eastern part of Pudong district. It is actually closer to the Shanghai Pudong Airport than the city center of Shanghai. If you're coming from the city center, take the Shanghai Metro Line 11 which provides convenient and fast access to Disney Resor via the Terminal Station "Disney Resort." Travel time is about 30-40 minutes and fare is around 5-6 Yuan depending on where in the city center you're coming from.

If you’re traveling with family or in a group, I recommend that you get a private car transfer for a hassle-free experience. Book a car transfer here. You may also consider a cheaper alternative such as the Shared City Transfers from Shanghai to Shanghai Disneyland Resort.
