The more I see of Shanghai Disneyland, the more I like it.

Agreed. Now do I make the trip, or wait for the closer parks to catch up? Like Robb says, I would not be apposed to them replacing PoTC at Disneyland with the Shanghai version.

Yeah, I need to visit this place--the Pirates of the Caribbean ride is reason enough.

Ditto. I'll brave the unhealthy air quality in Shanghai for this ride, any day. It looks amazing.

Meh, the air in Shanghai is just like LA. Beijing (and some of the lesser visited industrial cities) is where you can see, smell, and feel the air you're breathing in! I'll never forget our 2012 visit I was so happy KT wasn't there as it felt like I was breathing air through a charcoal brick!

Excellent TR and photos! Looks like you had an awesome visit.

I've seen many photos/videos of the Q'araq recently where the animatronic appears to be broken down (like EE's Yeti). Were you able to see it working live? If so, how was the effect? I'm wondering how accurate they can get the motion of the animatronic with a raft ride since the position/time of the raft is more unpredictable than a ride vehicle.

Yes, the air in Shanghai was OK. But I'm convinced that the pollution in Beijing screwed up my camera. Some residue got into the lens compartment, and I was getting these occasional, annoying brown smudges on my pictures. It all started in Beijing.
