The Shanghai International Tourism and Resorts Zone, which of course has Shanghai Disneyland as its centerpiece, is on the look out for 700 volunteers to help out when it opens.
According to Shanghai Daily, the volunteers will be expected to help maintain order, give directions, assist physically-challenged tourists and serve as interpreters to foreigners.
The zone is scheduled to open to the public at the end of April, although Shanghai Disneyland won’t open to the public until June 16. Prices will be set at 499 yuan ($75) for the first few weeks, however once the festivities are over, a one-day ticket will cost a mere 370 yuan ($56).
“We estimate that we will need 100 to 120 volunteers at the same time during peak time and 130 to 150 of them during super peak time,” said Qiu Yichuan, an official with the Shanghai Shendi Group, which invests, builds and operates the Shanghai Disney Resort in cooperation with the Walt Disney Company.
The Shanghai Youth League Committee has said it will soon be publishing adverts for the roles on its WeChat accounts “qingchunshanghai” and “shvolunteer” which will target students at 10 universities across Shanghai.
“We welcome foreigners who study, work and live in Shanghai to apply,” said Zhou Liuyun, an official with the committee.
