Got ya. . thanks!

But considering how people are trashing the place, they may want to rethink things.

That's probably why they let people in the area, so they can find answers to the issues.

Disney is probably trying to figure out what the worst situation will be like for the park. The lake area is public and people can get in free of charge. Even though the area has entry control, uneducated and sketchy people would go there to see what a Disney property is like without having to pay for the expensive tickets.

Most of the people that would go to a free Disney property without any rides alone with 160,000 other tourists are definitely not the target audience of Shanghai Disneyland. I'm not saying awful behaviors will not exist inside of the park, but it definitely will not be as bad as the public area of the resort. Let's put it this way, if you have a gigantic free Disney park with a beautiful lake, Diseny level theme, imported flowers all over the place that just opened. I'm pretty sure wherever outside of Japan, Singapore and South Korea, such place will attract sketchy people and they will ruin everything. Just imagine this exact same place in Anaheim.

After all I'm 99% sure Disney is just using that lake and adjacent land to save land for a future park and further expansions.

That's sad to read. But I seem to remember there was stuff about HKDL's opening in 2005, the same things
happening in and around the garden areas.

But when the TPR tour visited in 2012, after 7 years open, the problems appeared to be gone. Hopefully, it won't
take that long for Shanghai's problems to be solved.

Favorite element on SkyRush is the Stengel Dive!
