Disneyland in HK is tiny. As I can understand, Shanghai Disneyland will be one of the biggest.

Can anyone point the location of the future park on the map? Thanks.

Not only that, but at the next station people start running from the train and their actions start off a stampede. Many of the commuters appear to have no idea why they are running but they fear something is terribly wrong.

Yet the whole terrifying episode is sparked off by one man who has simply fainted. Later in the video you can see him recovering with the help of subway staff.

The video was taken in the world's largest city, Shanghai in China with a population of more than 24 million. It isn't the first time subway riders have shown a tendency to run from anything out of the ordinary.

In February, a female passenger’s cell phone on a Line 8 train started to emit smoke, someone shouted 'FIRE!" and within seconds people were falling over each other in a desperate effort to get out, dropping their belongings in the process.

Locals blame the edginess on a spate of public attacks by knife-wielding assailants on locations including public train stations.
