Chinese Tourists Are Outraged Over The ‘Unreasonable’ Food Prices At Shanghai Disneyland

Even though Shanghai’s Disneyland is still not open yet (just one more week), tourists, who presumably got hungry after trashing the place, are now complaining about the “outrageous” prices of theme park food.

Shanghai Disneyland’s Mickey Mouse-head baozi, a steamed bun snack, costs 35 yuan each, or around $5.30 while a bottle of water costs 10 yuan, or about $1.50.

While the prices actually seem reasonable by theme park standards, many, who perhaps thought they’d find a good deal at a theme park whose only purpose is to collect cash, were unhappy and even claimed that prices were cheaper at Tokyo’s Disneyland.

Fortunately, the internet had a slew of all-too-true comments on the subject:

“What did you expect? Of course it’s going to be expensive.”

“This is nothing. At Hong Kong Disneyland a quick meal cost me $299 HKD.”

“This is just to dissuade the lowest rung of society from visiting and ruining your experience.”

“There’s nothing saying you have to go, if you think it’s too expensive just stay home.”

In the end, Shanghaiist went to go buy a couple of baozi for themselves, claiming in the end that they were “aaaaaaaaamazing!”

Among the attractions is the Leaky Cauldron, a famous eatery within the novels and what looks to be a pretty magical restaurant soon to hit Orlando. Universal Studios released a menu of options from the Leaky Cauldron. Among the choices are Ploughman’s (English cheeses, bread, apple beet salad and a Scotch egg), Cottage Pie and Beef, Lamb & Guinness Stew in a bread bowl.

Other dishes include Bangers and Mash, Fisherman’s Pie, Fish and Chips and exclusive beers including Wizards Brew and Dragon Scales (it is a pub, after all). Fan-favorite beverages like Pumpkin Juice and Butterbeer will also be available.

From what we’ve seen so far, the Leaky Cauldron has us salivating. It doesn’t seem to need an excitement charm to get our attention. Now to book that ticket to Florida. Sadly, our brooms don’t fly.
