^ Maybe they changed their minds and the parachute drop is back in? :?r

I just re-read the press release, and noticed they say three "attractions" (instead of rides)
as well as the Character Meet area. So one of these attractions could be a stage with shows, maybe?

By the way, I always wanted to say, that a show is NOT an "attraction," in my mind. Just saying.
But nowadays, what can you expect from Disney? Everything except food and souvenirs, is an "attraction."

Still, I am definitely looking forward to what the "Land" has in store. :mickey:

I don't know if Toy Story Land is a good idea since Hong Kong Disneyland already has one. I thought they wanted to make those parks different. What about a Finding Nemo/Dory Land? Or a Little Mermaid Land?

I'm going to Shanghai over Christmas and really want to take a trip to Disneyland, mainly for Pirates and TRON. What sort of lines are to be expected on weekdays now? Is it still pretty manic, or is it fairly manageable within a day?

Also, anyone been to Happy Valley Shanghai? Is that worth spending a day on?..

We have just spent two wet days there (a Thursday & a Friday)... Having tickets specific to a day meant the park was still surprisingly busy.
Pirates never had a queue longer than 35 minutes & you can usually get TRON Fastpasses throughout the day. We managed 3 rides on TRON over the 2 days, only one with a FASTPASS.

Longest queues we saw over the 2 days were for Soarin' & the Seven Dwarves Mine Train. Both were frequently well over an hour.

Fastpasses for within an hour... this was a surprise.

Notice the umbrellas... a very wet two days.

Apologies for the quality of this one... turns out iPhones don't enjoy two days of wet weather very much...

An attraction, something that attracts people, can definitely be a show. Especially at a Disney Park where shows are often big attractions: look at the crowds Fantasmic draws to DHS at night, or how many people went to DCA when Frozen was new. DCA's attendance went up like 20% the year World of Color opened!

Also that's kind of weird how the Fastpass tickets are written in English considering about 1% of mainland China speaks English. Do you get an option or something of what language you want it in? At the other Disney Parks it has the native language and English on the same ticket.

^ I totally understand that. It's just with some of them, I don't think they should all be called "attractions"
especially the all live shows, like at Disney Sea. In My Humble Opinion, it's an insult to a live cast who has worked
their butts off to give me a fantastic performance. That's my querk about it. I would however, probably
call the new "Triton's Concert" there, an attraction. Even though it has actual live people in it, too. :wink:

I think the system records your choice of language when you pick up your ticket. During grand opening I thought they didn't have English FP!
