Disneyland with a Chinese twist

Chinese visitors to Shanghai Disneyland are generally well-mannered.

SHANGHAI -- On my first visit to Shanghai Disneyland, which opened in June, I found three must-try attractions. The first is the Tron Lightcycle Power Run. The roller coaster with a maximum speed of 100kph has a futuristic appearance. Passengers sit on motorcycle-style seats to experience a thrilling ride that makes you scream, either with excitement or fear.

The second is the Pirates of the Caribbean ride, which has become a fixture at Disney resorts around the world. Huge screens and cutting-edge 3-D technology take passengers on an adventure at sea. Images of giant squids and exploding pirate boats that splash water are genuinely impressive.
