票价与物价 Jun 11, 2016

Disneyland, Shanghai

但不知其赶超国际水平的票价与物价,一般老百姓是否都能消受得起?自从加州的 Disneyland 和弗罗里达的 Disney World 把票价提高至每人约 $100 之后,游客也大大地减少了。

Food prices at Shanghai Disneyland give early visitors heartburn
http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-shanghai-disney-food-adv-snap-story.html

Yang Tianjiao, a graduate student at the Shanghai East China University of Science and Technology, said she heard about the high prices of food at Disneyland, so she brought boxed food to eat inside the park.

“I saw my friend eating lunch served by Disneyland — and a plate of rice with pork chops cost her 90 yuan” or around $14, Yang said. Her almost-identical boxed food was only about $5.

"Middle-class Chinese consumers" Jun 15, 2016

http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-shanghai-disney-food-adv-snap-story.html

According to the spokesman for Shanghai Disney Resort, the resort seems to be dedicated to serving "middle-class Chinese consumers" and richer people only.
At a news conference in Shanghai on Thursday, Shanghai Disney Resort spokesman Murray King said that tickets are the cheapest among all Disney parks around the world and affordable for middle-class Chinese consumers.

Business model of amusement parks Jun 15, 2016



From the report "Food prices at Shanghai Disneyland give early visitors heartburn":

An article headlined “The first group of Shanghai Disneyland visitors have wept to the point of fainting inside the park, because it’s too expensive” went viral on WeChat, a Chinese messaging platform.



Isn't that being a bit melodramatic? I wonder how the headline truly read in its original Chinese.

Thinking back to the old days, the food at 石舫, for example, in Beijing's Summer Palace was also not that great yet marked up quite a bit.

Unlike at the supermarkets, hot dogs easily sell for $5 apiece in the crowded stands of a baseball game.

My guess is food provided at major tourist attractions is mainly to tide over the hunger for hungry tourists; it's not designed to be an all-out dining experience.

超越国际水平的物价 Jun 16, 2016

Steve,

旅游景点、机场、车站、码头的物价自然会比其他地方高一些,但 “a plate of rice with pork chops cost her 90 yuan or around $14” 确实是超过了国际水平。这样一份快餐在加州的 Monterey Park 市也许只要 $3.99。即使在加州的 Disneyland 和奥兰多的 Disney World,吃一顿快餐也就不过每人十几美元。

“上海迪士尼下雨 下的是美元人民币” Jun 16, 2016

国务院副总理:上海迪士尼下雨 下的是美元人民币
http://news.qq.com/a/20160616/036051.htm
国务院副总理汪洋致词时开玩笑说:“华特迪士尼总裁艾格先生与上帝关系不错,开园时下雨。在中国文化里水为财,这下的不是雨,下的是美元和人民币。有大喜临门之意”。

如果水为财的说法成立,不知副总理又如何解释以下事实?

'Rarest' South China floods leave 100 dead, cause $5.6b loss
http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/china/2015-07/02/content_21162613.htm
Failure to meet standards

More than 300 of China's 657 cities fail to reach the national standards for flood prevention in urban areas, and more than 90 percent of older urban areas don't even meet the lowest criteria for flood prevention, according to Zhang. "Urban flooding will only get more serious if we continue to ignore the construction of drainage systems and sewers," he said.

我想应该是这个标题:第一批体验上海迪士尼的人已哭晕

估计那篇文章的作者对网络新词汇也不是很熟悉。

您这一帖让我想起 “一片汪洋都不见,知向谁边?”的诗句。

汪洋就是最大的水呀!他这是在借和外国人调侃提醒国人,他自己就是财神。 

一个副总理,名字叫“汪洋”可以,但是随意谈论“水”的文化象征就不智了。如果有人借题发挥,说南方发大水,是应了副总理的名字。怎生是好?

风水师的文化噱头 Jun 17, 2016

 在中国文化里水为财, 


作为中国人,我其实不久前才知道,“水” 可以代表 “财”。

古代的观念里,似乎并没有这种强烈的关联性。

《易经》中,第二十九卦,坎为水,主凶。

Yueyin,

I agree with you. Their food prices are indeed too high.

I wouldn't want to spring for an expensive meal of mediocre quality like that if I didn't have to either. Heck, I usually don't even buy popcorn when I go to the movies - No high-priced gouging for this "informed" consumer.

QHE,

Thanks for the great detective work.

Armed with this new information, I would blame it mainly on the bad translation which didn't take into account the humor involved (in the original headline). Of course, I had to look up the meaning/origin of "哭晕在厕所" to get it myself.

https://zh.moegirl.org/zh/Oo哭晕在厕所
“更有新闻说滨崎步家的马桶是镶了钻石的马桶(意指滨崎步很有钱),联系到这一点,吧友便想出了“哭晕在镶钻马桶旁”这一喜感的说法,并被流传出来。”

你的分析真是一针见血!荀子曰:“水则载舟,水则覆舟。” 历史上不少君王都懂得这个道理。汪洋作为分管农业、水利、防汛抗旱等事务的国务院副总理,也应该懂得这个起码的道理。
