(Correspondent: Lan Tian, Yang Yizhong; Drafting: Ji Zhoujie) Disney Resort Station of Shanghai Metro Line 11 will start soft operation at 10:00 on April 26, 2016. This marks the overall operation of the Disney Resort section of Metro Line 11. Shanghai Metro reminds passengers that this is merely the soft operation of the Disney Resort Station of Metro Line 11, not the officially opening of Shanghai Disney Resort. After the Disney Resort Station started operation on April 26, certain construction projects in the public areas outside the station are not yet completed. Shanghai Metro suggests passengers not going to Shanghai Disney Resort at the initial period of the soft operation of Disney Resort Station.

Disney Resort Station Launches Soft Operation at 10:00 on April 26

The Disney Resort section of Metro Line 11 (from Luoshan Road to Disney Resort) was completed and started operation on December 19, 2015. To play a supporting role to the overall construction of Shanghai International Tourism and Resorts Zone, at that time, only two stations: Xiuyan Road Station and Kangxin Highway Station was put into operation. According to the overall arrangement of the headquarters for the construction project of Shanghai International Tourism and Resorts Zone, Disney Resort Station, as the new terminal of the East section of Metro Line 11, will start soft operation at 10:00 a.m. on April 26. According to the soft operation plan, around 08:00 on April 26, this train will start from North Jiading Station, pass by Xujiahui (estimated to arrive at 09:21), Shanghai Oriental Sports Center (estimated to arrive at 09:34) and Luoshan Road (estimated to arrive at 09:51), and will be estimated to arrive at Kangxin Highway Station at 09:56. It will be the first train bound for Disney Resort. Shanghai Metro suggests passengers to arrange their travel plans reasonably based on the operation time of Disney Resort Station at 10:00. After the official opening of Shanghai Disney Resort, the metro operation department will make further adjustment based on the business hour of Disney Resort and the traveling needs of tourists.

Higher than the service standard of metro network: the last train departs from Disney Resort Station at 22:30

The first train departs from Disney Resort at 06:00 (to North Jiading). The last train bound for North Jiading, Anting and Huaqiao departs from Disney Resort at 22:30 p.m., 22:25 p.m. and 22:00 p.m. respectively.

According to the operation rule of Shanghai Metro, the last train departs at 22:00 p.m. from a suburban area. To ensure that the train schedule matches the business hour of Disney Resort, Shanghai Metro makes a special running chart, and postponed the departure time of the last train half an hour later to 22:30. The train schedule for other stations thereafter will also be postponed correspondently. This alteration is made based on higher service standards of Shanghai Metro. Though this alteration will increase the workload of metro operation, it provides sufficient time to tourists for leaving the resort and going home at night and provides more convenience to passengers. In the future, after Shanghai Disney Resort started operation officially, Shanghai Metro will make further adjustment on the schedule of the last train of Metro Line 11 based on the passenger flow at night.

After Disney Resort Station started soft operation, the traveling route of trains of Metro Line 11 will be the same as before. The terminal in the southern section of Line 11 will be extended from Kangxin Highway Station to Disney Resort Station (see the following map for details). During non-rush hours on working days and peak hours on weekends, passengers could go to Disney Resort from either North Jiading Station or Huaqiao Station (the terminals of Metro Line 11’s north section). The entire journey takes around one and half an hour to one hour and fifty minutes.
