Pooling the hive mind for some general tips and info here please…
I'm getting to travel to Singapore at the end of the month. I'm going to make the most of my first visit to Asia, and travel through HK & China after that for a couple weeks before coming home. Naturally, the lure of Universal Singapore and both Disney resorts is too strong, so they're definitely on my list.
1. I'm assuming one day is enough at each? I'm not fussed about hitting the clones, but would like to at least check out the unique attractions. I'd like a wander through DisneyTown, but it doesn't seem like a many-hours kind of place
2. I've scheduled it so I'll be doing the Disneys out of the New Year celebration period, and on weekdays - so I'm assuming crowds will be manageable. Am I correct in this? (My Universal visit will be right in the middle of the holidays, but there aren't all that many attractions I haven't done at UO/USH, so I can live with that. And the advance Express there seems like good value.)
3. Touring strategy for each seems pretty obvious, but if there's anything I should know, I'd appreciate any tips there. (I plan to basically cover the 2 or 3 big unique rides in each, then just take in whatever else after that.)
4. I assume the standard buy-your-tickets-in-advance guidance applies?
5. Any lesser-known discounts for the on-site Disney hotels? I'm travelling on a definite budget, so not currently considering them, especially given transport seems so convenient. But would do if I could get a night for under $100USD.
6. I'd be really gutted to miss the big, unique rides like Mystic Manor, Pirates or Tron, but the websites don't seem to list refurbs very far into the future. Any way I can find this out for February?
7. My travels will also be taking me up to Beijing. Not planning on visiting a park up there as there seems far too much else to do, but let me know if I should consider a half-day visit to a park there. (Or in the other cities.) I'm curious about Joyland, simply because I'm a fan of obscure/bizarre/copyright-violating parks. But it might be just a bit too much of a diversion.
8. Any other information you'd like to throw at me would be much appreciated! Park tips or other hidden gems away from the parks…
nb - anyone else out there around then and fancy hitting a park together, give me a shout. We can get some #ThanksShanghai hoodies made up.Tweet
