The Travel Diary | Shanghai pt 2 (Disneyland)
















Shanghai Disneyland has only just recently opened mid 2016 I believe and as it being the 'happiest place on Earth', I was incredibly eager to go. I went with my mum relatively early on our stay as it was one of those things I wanted to tick off my list and visit. Visiting Disneyland is also quite easy. It's about a 45 minute train ride from where we were staying (near the Xujiahui district) and Disneyland is right at the terminal station. 

This is the first Disneyland I've been to and I thoroughly enjoyed it. We went on a Wednesday which meant it was relatively quiet and it was also raining a little. It is also more expensive on a weekend and with the bigger crowd- definitely recommend a weekday. This was perfect for us because that meant all the queues for the rides were quite short. They have this fast pass ticket for certain rides which meant you could book a time for the ride, explore and come back to the ride and essentially jump in the queue. After the first ride, we realised this wasn't necessary as the lines were short.

The Enchanted Book Castle was beautiful and I met so many characters such as Mickey and Minnie, Winnie the Pooh, Donald the Duck, etc. I felt like such a little kid but gosh I was cute. As the weather was relatively wet, the parade consisted of them being on a train. Lunch was nice as the pizza was shaped like Mickey. I strongly recommend getting duck pizza. I've had it many times and it never fails. Food is quite overpriced but that's just the nature of theme parks. 

It was pouring heavily in the late afternoon but by that time, we had already explored pretty much the entire area. They also have Disneyland passports but it was kind of childish and I'm pretty sure I heard remarks when I bought it. Not happy. It's really fun though because throughout Disneyland, they have stamp machines where you place the passport in and it gives you a pretty stamp. After collecting all the stamps, you get a special stamp in the end and a badge. Pretty corny but it's a fun novelty idea and it really shows you've been to Disneyland. When it was raining in the afternoon, we decided to check all the souvenir shops and we spent a little (no a lot) of money. Afterwards, everyone gathered at the castle where there was a storytime display and amazing fireworks to cap off a brilliant day!
