After an incredibly rough opening
that included children defecating in the bushes and people carving graffiti on lampposts, the Chinese government has now issued an etiquette guide for visitors of Shanghai Disneyland.
The new guide is a joint publication from Shanghai’s civilization office and tourism bureau.
Because of the crazy mess left behind by the opening crowds back in early May, the new guide offers six simple rules that guests should follow to help keep such a mess from happening again. City officials confirm that the guide can be a new opportunity for a good international image.
The six rules
include; throwing garbage into trash cans, protecting public property, don’t damage flowers or gardens, don’t lay down on the grass, don’t jump queues, and to overall “maintain decorum” (that means no Brazilian soccer chanting in line).
At this point, the guide is simply that, a guide, but there has been some talk in Shanghai of keeping records of violators and “public shaming.”
The Disneyland crowds were part of a preview group that was able to see the shopping district and parts of the theme park before its official opening in mid-June.
While the park has yet to officially open, it has already seen over a million guests.
