Since being disclosed by a number of Chinese media over the weekend, the case 上海夜生活
has sparked heated discussions on social media about whether it is reasonable for the world’s second largest W
alt Disney park to deny visitors the right to bring their own food. Some argue that the food and beverages supplied wi
上海夜生活品茶微信thin the park are overpriced, making the motivation behind the policy appear dubious.
In an online poll by local media shobserver.com, 40 percent of the respon
dents said they don’t mind such a policy as long as there is no price difference between the food sold in and o
utside of the park. The poll attracted more than 3,000 people in less than six hours. 上海夜生活品茶微信
Shanghai Disneyland has banned outside food, alcohol and nonalcoholic beverages over
600 milliliters inside its park since November 2017, more than a year after its opening.
This is not the first time Shanghai Disneyland got sued over the p 上海夜生活
olicy. In June 2018, a lawyer from Suzhou, Jiangsu province, tried to take the theme pa
rk to court by accusing it of violating consumer rights. But the court turned down his appeal. 上海夜生活
Wang, together with three of her classmates and a mentor, approached the case
上海夜生活品茶微信as a “service contract dispute”, calling the ban an unfair term in standard-form
consumer contracts. She also cited a statement by the Supreme Court, which said the policy of no outside food
and beverages in the catering industry is a “bullying term”, according to thePaper.cn. 上海夜生活
In one of its recent school journals, Wang and her three classmates, who are all majoring in
international law, said it’s the nature of legal practitioners to find fault with the status quo. 上海夜生活

上海夜生活William Brown, an American professor at Xiamen University, Fujian province, set off
on Tuesday to retrace the route taken by him and his family in China 25 years ago.
In 1994, Brown, together with his wife and two sons, drove 40,000 kilometers around China for about three months in their Toyota van.上海夜生活品茶微信
Brown said the idea of retracing the journey has always been on his mind. During this revisit, he wants to see the chang

This time, the 63-year-old is traveling without his wife and sons. But he is not alone. A fleet of four上海夜生活品茶微信

The new notices, although not compulsory, have won support from commuters.
“It’s been a habit for most to leave space on the left for those who walk
on escalators, so we may not be able to change our habits overnight,” said Peng Xu
an, a commuter in Shanghai. “But for the safety of everyone, if you want to walk or are in a hurry, you can use the stairs.”
Peng said he has seen some people fall while trying to move too quickly
on an escalator, adding that during peak hours standing on both sides is more efficient.
