Shanghai Disneyland officially opened on the 16th June 2016 and is located in Pudong, Shanghai. The park is owned by Walt Disney Parks and Resorts and Shanghai Shendi Group. The park consists of Mickey Avenue, Gardens of Imagination, Fantasyland, Treasure Cove, Adventure Isle and Tomorrowland. Toy Story Land is planned to open in 2018.

They travelled from Australia to Shanghai and stayed off-site first to experience Shanghai and then had four park days, staying at the Shanghai Disneyland Hotel at Club Level. This is something they highly recommend as the price point was comparable to deluxe hotels at Walt Disney World and comes with a host of benefits, all of which they discuss on the podcast.

During our chat, we discuss the parks attractions and they share some top tips which ensured they got the optimum experience. The one attraction they enthused about the most was the Tron Lightcycle Power Run. This is an opening day attraction and is based on the Tron film series. It currently is the fastest attraction in any Disney theme park, reaching speeds of 60mph. Their top tip is ask for the front row - you won't regret it!

Kat and Lewis particularly enjoyed leaving the park and going to Disneytown. As Disneyland does not serve alcoholic beverages, if you want a drink with your meal, it is an ideal destination that can be walked to very quickly. They enjoyed a meal at Wolfgang Puck Kitchen but there are also a few other familiar names such as The Boathouse, Starbucks and The Cheesecake Factory as well as more traditional Chinese cuisine. When it comes to shopping, Disneytown has some very familar names such as Lego, Pandora, Crocs, Superdry and Sephora.
