    Shanghai Disneyland summer

    I'm in the park now and just a warning, the crowds are heavier than I anticipated and it's very hot - midday to 3pm are like walking through treacle. I was in Hong Kong and I've been Tokyo in September but nothing compares to this (and it's gonna get hotter as I work my way to Beijing! Yay) If...

    Hong Kong Disney - stray observations

    I found about about mainland's love for line cutting the second I arrived at Shanghai airport and it was a free for all! The weather was terrible for the 4 days except for the Disney day which was so nice

    Hong Kong Disney - stray observations

    Visiting midweek is the way to go! We got lucky and it didn't rain all day. Hong Kong is without a doubt the wettest city I've ever been to and I'm from London. The combination of heat and humidity has ensured my hair has looked absolutely mental every single day. The park is a nice, easily...

    Critique my itinerary

    Thank you! I definitely want to minimise zig-zagging where possible so will swap those two around. These are great tips for parade / Paint the Night viewing, I wouldn't have even thought of where to grab a spot. Also thank you generally - you are the superstar of this board.

    Critique my itinerary

    Expect to see more posts from me as I stress and plan! This is my rough plan of attack, it'll be myself and two others on a Wednesday (next Weds in fact!). Am I trying to cram in too much? Is it better to hit Tomorrowland later in the day? Sadly the Grizzly Mine Cars are closed for the...

    Observations on Hong Kong Disneyland (visit on 05/16/2019)

    Thanks for feeding back! Your comments on tomorrowland have made me consider my plan of attack. What day did you visit? Tying Mystic Manor with Phantom Manor is high praise indeed, I have a Phantom Manor tattoo so I am now even more stoked to ride in next week. Are characters line-ups or...

    Are FULL names needed on hotel confirmation for 144 hour China visa?

    Hey, I just had my visa issued (on Monday in fact!) and I did not have my middle name on the booking. All my hotel reservations were in Jay (my given name) and my passport says Jade (don't reveal my secret please). I didn't use my middle name at all. They approved it first time with no...

    Does HK still have first visit badges?

    Ahh that's so annoying! Sadly I'm staying off site and doubt very much they'll be doing a restock by next Wednesday.

    Does HK still have first visit badges?

    I've seen pictures of the on Google but not sure how old the images are. I know Shanghai just has generic ones which is a shame, but I'd love a Hong Kong first visit one!

    Disneyland or disneysea

    Disneysea! Such a nice park to walk around and soak up the atmosphere and the rides are great too.

    So much to learn!

    The character rooms are worth every penny (I stayed in the Alice one and can dig out photos/videos if you're interested). We found some booked out faster than others but the Alice and Beauty and the Beast ones were generally available while Tinkerbell and Cinderella booked quickly. I would say...

    Oh sweet - cheers!

    How did you make your SHDL Dining reservation?

    What's the email? I'd love to reserve in advance instead of doing it on check-in

    Women's Clothing in Summertime

    Yeah I was exactly the same and was expecting to be refused from bars/restaurants etc but I didn't encounter any negativity over the two weeks - I get more stares on the London Underground to be honest. I went the first two weeks of September and it was so hot that I would have fainted if I was...

    TDL and TDS attractions strategy help please

    Backing what Gelatoni fan has said - have an alternate plan for Pooh as all 3 days we tried it was down on opening. We queued 30 mins for it very late in the evening. I'd do Monsters Inc FP then the Fantasyland dark rides + dumbo then move onto Tomorrowland, you can probably squeeze in Star Wars...

    Women's Clothing in Summertime

    Honestly it doesn't matter and it's very, very hot so just dress in a way that makes you comfortable. I wore spaghetti strap dresses, shorts etc and nobody batted an eyelid. I'm heavily tattooed as well and even that wasn't an issue. If you're planning to visit temples, then bring a cover up for...

    Is the app more accurate on the website?

    Just checked the app and they've extended it to the 30th too, what a shame! Guess it's not meant to be. At least it's not Mystic Manor.

    Is the app more accurate on the website?

    Yep May 28/29! I can go on the 30th so will shuffle my days along. Didn't think of calling, that's such a good idea. At least I have a couple of weeks to prepare, looks like I won't have my Shanghai hours until 10 days before and I'll already be in Hong Kong by then.

    Is the app more accurate on the website?

    Just had a look in the app for my Hong Kong visit and it says that the Grizzly Mountain Mine Cars are closed on my visit. Cross-referenced with the website but it only seems to offer closures a week out. Should I reschedule my trip to later in the week (when the app says it'll be open) or is...
