China’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism recently issued the “Notice on Further Business Resumption of Tourism Enterprises,” which raises the operating capacity of tourism sites from 30% to 50% of permitted capacity. As a result of this policy change, and as overall market conditions continue to rebound, Shanghai Disney Resort is increasing the daily capacity of the resort’s theme park, Shanghai Disneyland, and, effective August 24, 2020, will transition the current Advanced Reservation Period to a new reservation phase, aiming to provide more flexibility for guests to plan and enjoy their park visit. During this new reservation phase, the park will continue to fully comply with regulatory directives on reservations, staggered arrival and applicable capacity controls.

With the increased daily capacity beginning August 24, 2020, Shanghai Disneyland Annual Pass holders and General Admission Ticket holders will be able to visit the park on any eligible day based on the condition of their pass or ticket*. All other guests will be able to purchase park tickets and visit the park on the same day, subject to ticket availability. To comply with regulatory directives, all guests, including Shanghai Disneyland Annual Pass holders and infants under 3 years old or under 1.0 meter in height, will still be required to make a reservation by submitting their visitation date and personal information to obtain a Shanghai Disneyland Reservation QR Code prior to their arrival at the park’s Main Entrance.

Starting from the first day of the new phase on August 24, 2020, the validity period of Annual Passes and General Admission Tickets that were impacted by the park closure and Advanced Reservation Period will be extended accordingly. Click here for more details.

Rider Switch

finder.details.social.network.qrError

Parents or other adults can take turns riding select attractions when they have non-riders in their party.

What Is Rider Switch and How Does It Work?

If a guest in your party won’t be boarding an attraction due to height limit or other reasons, the Rider Switch option means you don’t have to miss out! Instead, you can wait with the non-rider(s) while the rest of your party enjoys the attraction. Then, once they’re done, you can take your turn by going through the Disney Premier Access entrance or alternative entrance (when the Disney Premier Access entrance is not available).

How it Works:

  • Step 1 – Ask a Cast Member if Rider Switch is offered at the attraction you want to experience.
  • Step 2 – If Rider Switch is offered, let a Cast Member know that you would like a Rider Switch arrangement. Enter the line with your entire party. One or two adult(s) will be designated to wait with the non-rider(s) in the “Rider Switch” area. The remainder of the party will experience the attraction.
  • Step 3 – When the remainder of the party returns to the “Rider Switch” area, the guest(s) who waited with the non-rider(s) may then take his or her turn by going through the Disney Premier Access entrance or alternative entrance (when the Disney Premier Access entrance is not available).

(Please note that Rider Switch may not save more queueing time for guests who holding a Disney Premier Access for the attraction concerned)
