Shanghai Disneyland Opening Day Tickets Sale Is A Blockbuster!
Shanghai Disneyland grand opening day is on June 16 and the tickets are already sold out like hot pancakes after hours of the offer. The tickets are sold on its official ticketing website. For June 17 to Sept. 30 tickets, these are available ranging from 370 yuan ($57) for non-peak periods up to 499 yuan for the peak periods. This includes the park's first two weeks, all weekends and July and August summer months.
As reported by Shanghai Daily, Shanghai Disney Resort together with its Wechat account declared no ticket was available from the new theme park's grand opening on June 16 to September 13 from the midnight schedule that tickets will start to sell. The sale of tickets resumed to normal at 9:30 am today after all the single and two-day tickets became available for sale including tickets for the opening day.
Shanghai Disneyland is a 963-acre park and is Disney's sixth worldwide. It is three-fold the size of Hong Kong Disneyland having non-peak tickets costing almost 20% less. CEO Robert Iger dubbed the theme park, Disney's greatest opportunity since Walt Disney himself purchased land in the 1960's in central Florida. The company considers wooing 330 million Chinese living within a three-hour train or car trip of Shanghai.
"Relying on the large desire for family-style entertainment and the rising purchasing power of Chinese consumers, Shanghai Disneyland is likely to set off massive consumer demand," Chang Jiang Securities Co. analyst Li Jin wrote in a note released Monday.
The resort's earnings possibly could range from 24 billion to 40 billion yuan a year, expecting up to 50 million visitors each year. The theme park's ticketing website needs buyers to register their ID numbers upon purchase to avoid bought tickets reselling at a higher price.
Shanghai Disneyland prices are the lowest in the world aside from giving 25% discounts to children whose height is 1.4 meters and below. Seniors aged 65 and up and guests with disabilities will also have the same discount. Getting a two-day ticket entitles you 5% off, reports Shanghaiist.
As of the moment, the construction is almost complete. The Shanghai Disneyland could rival Hong Kong Disneyland for locals and tourists alike that would like to enjoy various rides and different atmosphere.
