We (finally, according to the girls) made our way to Shanghai Disney and it was a magical day. We found a day that wasn't too crowded and the weather was fairly perfect. While we're not fans of Walt Disney the man, this was a great experience. The park is beautiful, the castle is massive (biggest Disney castle in the world), and the rides were amazing.
We loved many things not shown in the video, which included the Pirates battle of the sunken treasure, Peter Pan's flight, and a boat ride that even went under the castle! We walked around 9 miles and the girls did an outstanding job throughout the day; there was no whining about walking or toys and we were so proud of them. They were a bit disappointed that there wasn't much from Inside Out, Toy Story, Nemo/Dory, and Moana, but there was so much of everything else it was hard to notice. Pip was a bit upset that the Frozen sign-a-long was in Mandarin, so she just sang over them in English. There were cool cultural connections throughout the park like the Chinese Zodiac being represented in Disney characters.
It was an exceptional day of setting aside the worries of life, experiencing magic and the power of imagination. We can't wait to go back!
