As the coronavirus outbreak continues to evolve, it’s fair to expect the guidelines and procedures to do the same at the parks. As such, the Oriental Land Company has released updated guidelines for preventing the spread of COVID-19 at Tokyo Disney Resort.
The previous guidelines followed two points:
- Please use the hand sanitizer that is available in all Park restrooms after washing your hands.
- If you begin to feel unwell while in the Park, please contact the nearest Cast Member.
According to the Tokyo Disney Resort official website, a third point is now in effect as of today:
- Guests feeling unwell due to possible cold symptoms are requested to refrain from visiting the Parks.
While this may seem like common sense, it apparently seems to be something that requires saying in the first place. We can only hope that the situation improves from here, especially with the upcoming New Fantasyland expansion and Tokyo 2020 Olympics. Cast Members continue to have permission to wear masks if they choose. Japan has the fourth most cases, with 159 confirmed cases and one death. Despite this, we still advise exercising caution. Obey these guidelines during your travels, and consider wearing a mask and touching your face as little as possible. Also, keep your eyes on a reputable global news source and the CDC for more information. We at WDWNT will continue to monitor how the COVID-19 outbreak affects Tokyo Disney Resort and Disney Parks worldwide.
