Shanghai Disney Resort Faces Yet Another Fine
For the third time in just a few months, Shanghai Disney Resort yet again received another fine from the Pudong New Area Administration for Market Regulation. This time, the fine came after a violation of a food safety law, according to reports.
According to news source Shine, the news platform for Shanghai Daily, the fine stemmed from a June encounter in which “foreign matter” was served in a cake at the Royal Banquet Hall. Royal Banquet Hall sits inside Enchanted Storybook Castle, the incredible centerpiece of Shanghai Disneyland.
Due to the issue, the operator of the resort owes 70,000 yuan in fines, which is the equivalent of $10,948, according to the Shine article. The report from the administration did state that the diner did not pay for the meal in question.
Over the past few months, Shaghai Disney Resort also received citations for substandard clothing sales and locker violations.
“Some T-shirts sold by the resort failed quality tests for two indexes of colorfastness, and a fine totaling 202,738 yuan was imposed by the Pudong New Area Administration for Market Regulation. Dye in clothing with poor colorfastness can bleed into the skin and is harmful, experts said,” the article states.
The locker issues stemmed from a local watchdog report, which cited issues with signage regarding the resort’s lack of responsibility over items in the lockers, which goes against Chinese regulations.
Earlier this month, the resort also locked down due to a single visitor testing positive for COVID-19. According to reports, 30,000 people were forced to stay inside the park until officials could test each individual for coronavirus. The resort then remained closed for another two days in order to undergo a deep cleaning before reopening to the public.
