The Best Time for a Visit
If you are in Shanghai for a few days, visit the Disneyland Park on a weekday as it will be less crowed than on a weekend. Try to avoid Chinese public holidays, such as Labor Day (May 1st to 3rd) and National Day (October 1st to 7th). It is recommended that you start your day early so as to avoid crowds.
