Can not miss Shanghai Disneyland, China2016-12-01 | China travel Guide
Shanghai is always a popular destination for foreign travelers to China, it is not only a typical representative of China's rapid economic growth, but also an international city since 1845 as foreign concessions--different countries’ concession made deep marks to Shanghai, and those combinations formed special charm of Shanghai. However, Shanghai becomes more attractive with one more reason: IT IS Shanghai Disneyland, which is the first Disneyland in mainland China. Opened on 16th June, 2016, it is however the second one for whole China, after the Hong Kong Disneyland. In the park, the Enchanted Storybook Castle is the largest Disney castle on the planet--there are 6 unique and unforgettable lands: Mickey Avenue, Gardens of Imagination, Fantasyland, Adventure Isle, Treasure Cove and Tomorrow land to explore. You will be full of joys and funs inside.
In this November, I personally visited the magical world and enjoyed it a lot. Now I want to share some experiences and useful tips with all travelers who intend to visit Shanghai Disneyland.
