Ben, if you go to Shanghai from UK or a country other than Japan, and your flight doesn't land in other cities of mainland China, you don't need the visa. Just book tickets and hotels to enjoy a good trip.

It is impossible to visit all the attractions in one day, so just choose what you like in your one day in Disneyland park and make a good plan before you going there.
