Shanghai Disney Resort now allows outside food
    2019-09-12  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

VISITORS to the Shanghai Disney Resort can now take their own food into the park, and their bags will no longer be rummaged through by security staff.

The new polices were introduced yesterday in the wake of widespread public ire against the resort’s previous ban on outside food, as well as complaints of rude staff behavior at security checkpoints.

Visitors are now allowed to bring outside food and beverage items into the park for self-consumption, provided that they do not require heating, reheating, processing, refrigeration or temperature control and do not have pungent odors, said Andrew Bolstein, senior vice president of operations at the Shanghai Disney Resort.

Instant noodles, food kept in containers with reheating capabilities, such as a self-heating hotpot, and durian fruit are still prohibited. The same goes for whole watermelons.

“But you can bring sliced watermelons,” Bolstein said.

Bottled non-alcoholic drinks are allowed, but cans and glassware will be kept out, except for small baby food jars. The resort operator explained that the prohibited items are not environment-friendly.

Bolstein also introduced a more guest-friendly and less intrusive security screening process. “We will also introduce more technologies such as the X-ray in the future, but it needs time,” he added.

“Guests are encouraged to open their own bags and remove any flagged items and return items themselves when the security screening is completed,” said Bolstein. “The staff will no longer reach their hands into the guests’ bags.”

He explained that since opening in 2016, security personnel have found more than 10,000 explosive or flammable items and over 5,000 toy guns or items appearing to be weapons.

For those who inadvertently arrive at the park with prohibited items, the park now offers daily storage for a fee of 10 yuan (US$1.41) per item. The size of the item can be no larger than 60 centimeters. Multiple items can also be stored together, provided they do not exceed the 60 centimeter limit.
