    I went on Roaring Rapids on the 16th (opening day) and I didn't spot this Q'araq at all in the whole ride....was it somehow disabled on the first day, or maybe I was just not very observant?
    That video was taken on the 18th and we saw previous footage during soft opening of it not working so perhaps but I would doubt they would have left it not working with guests on the ride unless there was something wrong with the animatronics.

    I certainly didn't notice the park being particularly dirty during my four days there (16-19)!! I did see some atrocious queue-jumping, although the Disney staff were actually quite good/eager at sorting it out. Native Chinese were among those getting angry at the queue-jumpers, so it works both ways. The worst thing I saw was a full-on fight between a couple, complete with biting, slapping and kicking. The security seemed unwilling to escort them out of the park despite the fact that there was a large crowd standing around watching. Not sure how this would have been dealt with at other parks...

    Chinese media call out uncivilized behavior at newly opened Shanghai Disneyland


    Pictures taken over the first weekend following the grand opening show the ground completely covered with food wrapping, plastic bags, and paper cups.
    Also in this photo, behind the cleaning crew, is spotless as I would expect of any Disney park so think that's just someone taking a photo to try and prove a point...

    Because it's not the largest Disney park and it is opening weekend. Give it time to see how it can handle crowds AND further construction.

  7. The capacity quote seems wrong to me, a park of that size should be closer to double that figure per day? I haven't seen any other figures for daily attendance though so unsure...
    30,000 was a very cautious number. 40,000 was reached once they got a good feel for actual operations vs. theoretical during the CM preview days. The park does have a lot of space, but we have to consider many things when it comes to how many people to let in. This comes down to the facilities available on opening day. How many people can we squeeze into a queue and get them through the attractions, how many seats are available at food & bev facilities vs. average time spent in the facility, etc. It's actually a very interesting metric to track. Just because the park is huge and can hold 60-80,000 very easily, you'd have a lot of very unhappy in the park if you actually loaded it out to that capacity. It's about making sure the guests have an enjoyable day rather than a straight cash grab at the gate.
