Disney's Shanghai theme park is loosening a ban on outside food in the wake of a lawsuit filed by a disgruntled visitor, but the home of Mickey Mouse will still not tolerate visitors taking in “anti-social” food such as durian fruit, instant noodles, whole watermelons and tofu.


Disney's rules were criticised online as an example of double standards and discrimination against Asians since its theme parks in Europe and the United States allow visitors to bring in food items.
The company will continue to check all personal belongings and guests will be required to pass through a metal detector in accordance with the law, despite public concerns over privacy.
