Shanghai’s municipal government has released an etiquette guide for visitors to the city’s new Shanghai Disneyland attraction, which opens to the public on June 16.
According to South China Herald, the etiquette guide encourages revellers to queue in an orderly fashion and respect the plants and trees on site – it also warns against some specific anti-social behaviours such as defacing public facilities and, rather strangely, lying down on the ground.
The issuing of these noticeably specific guidelines comes after the uncouth behaviour of park visitors during its soft launch in April and May.
Social media users posted pictures of visitors ‘trashing’ the area outside the park gates when the nearby metro station opened in April.
More than a million visitors visited Disney’s newest theme park during its soft launch, and it is already fully booked for the first two weeks after its official opening.
Construction began in 2011 for the ambitious attraction, which covers 963 acres.
The park will be split up into six themed areas: Adventure Isle, Treasure Cove, Fantasyland, Mickey Avenue, the Gardens of Imagination and Tomorrowland, which will feature Tron lightcycles.
There will also be a Toy Story-themed hotel on site, as well as a general Disney-themed hotel.
