Very good! Slightly cheaper than I thought but that seems very reasonable for what they offer.

I checked out their website, they mentioned that the boats on Pirates of the Caribbean will spin, go sideways, go backwards and even "dive into the water". Sounds kind of like Omnimover similar to Little Merimaid to me.

All the photos of Pooh they have on the website are from Tokyo Disneyland. Please let it be a trackless!

Jet pack ride will tilt forward more and more as you go higher.

I've gone pantless!

I was expecting there to be a greater discount if you purchased a 2 day ticket. 5% isn't really that much.

Recent photos I found from Themeparx.com

http://www.themeparx.com/shanghai-disneyland/ (Bottom of Page 3)

Show inside the Shanghai Disney Hotel, as well as a few shots inside the Winnie The Pooh dark ride,
which clearly show that the attraction is on a rail. And not as trackless as I hoped it would be.
Talk is Cheap :idea: Action is Pricele$$

The pooh ride looks like a clone of Disneyland's version based on that interior shot.

Anyone know why they might be using the Disneyland version? Surely if the Japan version is better it would make more sense to use that system?
If they are investing so much into the park surely the more advanced system would be a better choice?

You can't have everything, even in MONEYMONEYMONEYMONEYMONEY China.

Regardless of how much you spend, something is going to have the lowest investment. Disney doesn't automatically shoot for the best, most advanced system every time, they look at what's best for their park and what can carry out their story. The Winnie the Pooh ride at Shanghai might not have the crazy-awesome trackless system that Tokyo has, but if it tells the same story and is at the same level of show quality, it's still a win and will still be well-received by guests.

Sometimes, you need to keep it simple.

It could also be a case of them keeping it as the original version if they are planning new trackless ride in a future expansion e.g. Mystic Manor. I'm sure no-one here would complain if both trackless rides showed up but if the expansion is close enough to Pooh, maybe they wanted them different enough in systems to not look too similar in the GP's eyes.
