WOW. I've never even thought about traveling outside the country to visit a park but the pictures from this park looks amazing. It really demonstrates Disneyland would look like if it is built in 2016. The animatronics looks so cool. Tron like the most thrilling coaster that Disney has ever made.

I like the change about fast pass distribution! They now distribute fast pass at service centers of each land instead of at each attraction. That would make everything so much less confusing for the GP because cast members were explaining where the standby line, fast pass distribution line and fast pass return line are all the time at Disneyland. Do they do service center distribution at other parks?

They -kind of- do it at the Walt Disney World parks in that even though clusters of FastPass Plus kiosks are placed near attractions specifically, you can pretty much reserve any attraction's FastPass at any kiosk. At least, that's what I remember happening.

EPCOT had MyMagic+ kiosks near the front of the park and a CM to help you plan your day, make FP reservations, etc.

http://www.shanghaidaily.com/metro/entertainment-and-culture/Special-passport-to-be-available-at-Shanghai-Disney-Resort/shdaily.shtml

VISITORS to the Shanghai Disney Resort will be able to collect stamps at different locations on an official passport as a souvenir, the management of the resort announced today.

The resort has entered into a multi-year alliance with Invengo Information Technology Co Ltd, who will be the exclusive provider of the Shanghai Disney Resort Magic Passport, the resort said.

“The passport will become an interactive experience for guests to enjoy in the park that also offers a special souvenir keepsake of their visit,” the resort said in a press release.

The radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology is embedded in the passport.

The passport will be available for purchase at opening. Guests will be able to experience the park and collect official stamps at selected passport locations that work exclusively with the passport.

Once guests have collected each of the stamps, they can receive a special stamp commemorating the completion of this experience. Guests will be able to keep this memento as a souvenir of their exciting adventures throughout Shanghai Disneyland.

Disney & More, posted a recent look at the progress of "Mickey Avenue" the park's version of a Main Street....

Main Entrance to the park is in upper right hand corner.
Roaring Rapids lift hill can be seen in the top left hand corner of the photo.

Definitely a way to get more guest engagement and interest in the RFID pass than JUST FastPasses.

I wonder if they're going to create stickers and such for WeChat and Line that tie to this via smartphones?

Awesome! I'm going to be in Shanghai about two months too early... :cry:

Still debating if/when to make a special trip to the new park... very curious how overwhelmed it will be the first seasons of opening!
