Shanghai Disney cheaper than HK counterpart in ticket prices

A visit to Shanghai Disneyland, which will open on June 16, will be cheaper than going to its counterpart in Hong Kong.

The Shanghai Disney Resort announced on Wednesday that a standard single day ticket will cost 370 yuan (US$56.2), while a peak-day ticket during festivals and holidays will be sold at 499 yuan, Shanghai Daily reported.

By comparison, a one-day ticket to Hong Kong Disneyland costs HK$539 (US$69.2) for adults aged 16 to 64 years old. 

Ticket sales will begin on March 28.

Shanghai Disney will offer a 25 percent discount for children between 1 and 1.4 meters tall and seniors aged over 65 years old. A two-day ticket will be available at a 5 percent discount.

The US$5.5 billion theme park, the first Disney resort in mainland China, will feature the world’s tallest Disney castle, the Enchanted Storybook Castle, a Toy Story hotel and a theater with a Chinese-language production of Broadway hit “The Lion King”.

Aside from the favorite Disney characters and themes, it will showcase many classic Chinese designs, including the Wandering Moon teahouse, a garden mosaic depicting the 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac using images of Disney characters and local shikumen architecture, the newspaper said.

The theme park is expected to draw 10 million visitors a year.
