Shanghai city officials release etiquette guide for visitors to new Disney resort

in Shanghai Disneyland

After being hit hard with embarrassing reports of the behavior of the first visitors to the Shanghai Disneyland resort, city officials have issued an etiquette guide for locals well ahead of the official grand opening on June 16 in Pudong New District.

According to CNN and China’s official Xinhua news agency, the six rules were drafted after the “uncivilized behaviors” displayed leading up to the theme park’s trial run that began earlier this month.

The new guide warns tourists against littering, being rowdy, vandalizing, cutting in line, damaging the landscape and other “uncouth behaviors” such as lying down on the ground.

Indeed, the park hasn’t even opened and it’s already experienced its fair share of drama — and we’re not talking about the action on the Walt Disney Grand Theater stage.

First, scalpers jacked up ticket prices to obscene levels when tickets went on sale in late March. Then, when the park’s metro station opened in late April, curious visitors raced to the Disney grounds, reportedly causing damage to areas outside the park gates.

Additionally, “emergency crowd control drills will be held to address potential risks” before the park officially opens next month.

    Can’t be worse than what happened when HKDL faced its first holiday-capacity gate-closing on Chinese New Year’s, and the crowds didn’t know why–
    Apart from the Tokyo crowds, Asian countries’ parkgoers are still a little new at this “Theme Park” business.
