The magic of Disney® comes alive on this DreamTrip to Shanghai, China. Enjoy a 1-day pass to the recently opened Shanghai Disneyland Park®, which blends elements of Chinese culture with elements of classic Disneyland. Highlights include Treasure Cove and Tomorrowland, and characters Mickey Mouse, Snow White and Winnie the Pooh. Some attractions and rides are found only in this theme park, such as the Chinese zodiac-inspired garden where the animals are represented by Disney characters and the TRON Lightcycle Power Run roller coaster with motorcycle-shaped seats. Live performances, parades, shopping venues and picnic area keep everyone in the family entertained.
Sit back and enjoy a city tour as you travel through the Pudong New Area, a busy district and home to international businesses and world-class attractions. At the Oriental Pearl Radio & TV Tower, a signature of the Shanghai skyline, venture up to the 2nd sphere for views of the Huangpu River and the Bund. Yuyuan Garden is a peaceful oasis adorned with rockeries, flowers, ponds, pavilions and bridges. Nearby, the Yuyuan Bazaar, or “Old Town,” is an open-air market perfect for souvenirs such as pearls and wood carvings. Stop at the Bund, a popular waterfront that offers scenic views of skyscrapers and the river. Finally, stroll the Nanjing Road pedestrian area, Shanghai’s bustling main shopping street.
