I very much agree with the previous post. I was at Shanghai Disneyland in september, and the wide, open areas that I’m not so fond of at Tokyo Disneyland is even more apparent at Shanghai. I have been to all 12 Disney parks, and I would say this one lacked some charm and magic. I ended up having a good time, but to summarize: Mickey avenue was quite fun, and the mixing of styles worked better than expected. I liked the nod to Carl Barks and Floyd Gottfredson, and I liked that it was something different. On the negative side the flat, wide street without vehicles and kinetic energy and the open plan solution to the shops with a lack of a lot of items of personal interest (comics, books, movies, artwork, coffee) was sort of a let down and gave it more of a shopping center feel. The park is big, but there are a lot of wide, open areas with little theming that does not feel as immersive. Also, more visual intrusion than in other parks. Castle looks quite good from some angles, but not as charming as some of the others maybe. Fantasyland was too spread out for my taste, but the area closest to the castle was quite nice. It was my first time doing 7D mine train: it was good, but not great. I was not impressed by Tomorrowland! Except for the Tron roof, the area was too minimalist and lacking of interesting details for my taste. The Tron attraction was good. I still prefer the Jules Verne retro futuristic theme of Paris, the original’s 1950s futuristic style, and the cartoony style of HK in that order to this Asian airport theme. The greatest area for me was Pirates cove and Adventure Isle: some impressive theming and good atmosphere. The Barbosa restaurant was probably the coolest place to eat, and the whole Camp Discovery area was great! Fantastic atmosphere at night - true Disney magic. Roaring Rapids was fun, but a little lacking in story and theming I think. Both in the queue and the ride itself. The monster was not working and you could see the exposed metal neck. Weird that they can not get that to work consistently with all the experience they have. I looked forward to Pirates the most, and rushed right over to the attraction, but it was closed. Very little info. I ended up going back a couple of days later as the website said it would be open, but when I got there it was still closed. Luckily for me it opened in the evening, so I managed to ride it once. Funny thing was the real life Will Turner rode the boat behind us, so I guess they did what they could to open the attraction for him. It was very good, but I prefer the charm of the original. Did not experience anything problematic with guest behavior! Cast members could be in a better mood at the rides. Quite short queues on day 1, huge queues on day 2. Did not do attractions that I have done elsewhere or those that I think looked weak because of this. Closing show was good, but I much prefer a show like Remember from the original Disneyland. I think the projections work best when they transform the look of the castle (like the steampunk style and waterfall scene from the one in Paris), but when they smack a lot of characters in with scenes from movies projected like the castle is just a huge screen, I think it is lacking. There is too much going on without a story line, and the fireworks is less impressive than f.ex. Wishes because of the focus on projections. So - I ended up having a good time, and I liked that it was different, but it is not my favorite Disney Park. Will probably improve a lot as they add new areas and attractions.
