I thought it would be a really fun exercise to put together a 1-day itinerary for how I would do each of the Disney parks if I only had 1 day.
Following is how I would do the Shanghai Disney Resort.
(This itinerary assumes that the park is open from 8am – 10pm, it’s not a weekend, and it’s not a holiday.)
8:00am Head to Tron
(Get a FastPass for Soarin’ Over the Horizon (wait until the return time is showing 3:30-4:30pm before you grab it))
8:30am Do all of the rides in Tomorrowland (Jet Packs & Buzz Lightyear Planet Rescue)
9:00am Head to Toy Story Land and do Rex’s Racers
9:30am Head to Fantasyland and ride Peter Pan’s Flight & Voyage of the Crystal Grotto
10:00am Get a FastPass for Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
10:30am Grab a snack/BREAKFAST
11:15am Head to castle to watch Golden Fairytale Fanfare
11:40am Meet Mickey in the Gardens of Imagination
Noon Get a FastPass for Roaring Rapids (look for a 3pm return)
12:30pm Do the “Once Upon a Time” Adventure in the Enchanted Storybook Castle
1:00pm By this time the FastPass for Seven Dwarfs Mine Train should be ready (shift any of these items up or down depending on the return time for this ride)
1:30pm Walk through the Alice in Wonderland Maze
2:00pm LUNCH at Wandering Moon
Get a FastPass for Tron (you want a return time of around 9pm)
3:00pm Use FastPasses for Roarin’ Rapids followed by Soarin’
4:00pm Use the single rider line for Pirates of the Caribbean and ride this twice!
(Get FastPass for anything that’s left)
4:45-5:00pm Get in line for Tarzan: Call of the Jungle
6:30pm Dinner at the Royal Banquet Hall (inside the Enchanted Storybook Castle)
ALT: Dinner at Pinocchio Village Kitchen
8:00pm Get a spot for Ignite the Dream
8:30pm Ignite the Dream
9:00pm Ride Tron at night!
9:30-10:00pm Get in line for anything else you may have missed during the day (or anything you want to ride twice!)
This is just how I would attack the park if I were to go back. Have you been to Shanghai Disney yet? How would approach this park if you were to go back? Leave a comment below.
