Shang­hai Dis­ney­land web­site crashes for tick­ets

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

En­thu­si­as­tic cus­tomers for Shang­hai Dis­ney­land quickly snapped up the first batch of tick­ets for the open­ing day of the park on June 16, tem­po­rar­ily crash­ing the of­fi­cial web­site.

A state­ment is­sued by the Shang­hai Dis­ney Re­sort said it had re­ceived warm feed­back since it started sell­ing tick­ets on­line at 12:01 am on Mon­day.

“Within half an hour, clicks on the web­site (www. shang­haidis­neyre­sort.com) reached more than 5 mil­lion. The mas­sive vol­ume re­sulted in our tick­et­ing sys­tem tem­po­rar­ily mal­func­tion­ing,” it said.

The state­ment said all of­fi­cial web­site tick­et­ing sys­tems and au­tho­rized part­ners’ distri­bu­tion chan­nels func­tioned well later. But it did not say how many tick­ets were sold.

Shang­hai Dis­ney Re­sort is sched­uled to open on June 16.
