  • How China Won the Keys to Disney's Kingdom

    In light of the negative review that SD got in the article printed earlier today on MiceChat, perhaps any criticisms of what the park lacks should be directed to Disney's partner, the Chinese government. They appear to have had a great say in how the park would look and what attractions would be in it.

    Or perhaps people need to stop being so critical of everything. The park looks great to me, has amazing rides, and has already had lines and crowds even though its grand opening is not for another 2 days.

    I have to say too there has been a degree of anti-chinese sentiment in some of these critiques, with statements like and I am paraphrasing - (chinese culture is like this, or chinese people won't like that).

    Unless you are Chinese or live in China, I am not sure what that adds to the conversation. Can you imagine someone saying "Floridians don't know what this is, or black people don't like that".

    Come on people, this is an amusement industry. These parks that Disney makes are more beautiful than most of the rest of the industry and more well kept than much of the rest of the world we live in.

    Enjoy them!

      On MC we chat about various aspects of the theme parks. Most, but not all, do enjoy the parks.

        I have to say I agree with much of both the articles. The park has some good elements but overall doesn't feel Disney quality to me. I can't believe that you can see Disney town from tomorrowland- it's as bad an intrusion as the Dolphin at EPCOT, most of the rides are very generic spinner attractions or the carousel, tea cups etc. Tron has a fantastic look but why have the outside portion it looks like it completely spoils the game grid emerson. The Rapids ride looks like something from a six flags a real waste of a good idea. Most of all though where are the classic Disney touches - no small world, surely the heart of a Disneyland, no omnimover ride, only two fantasyland darkrides and one of them the second rate version, no train, steamboat or monorail.

        As others have said I think DLP is the best designed park based on Disneyland, I really wanted Shanghai to be good but it just looks like a poor copy, it makes you wonder whose pockets that $5.5 billion went into as it doesn't look like it was the park, I just hope they add more to the park soon - long lines don't mean the park is successful it means it's under built
