BREAKING: Ikspiari Shopping Center at Tokyo Disney Resort Reopening June 1st

While Tokyo Disney Resort still largely remains closed due to the impact of the COVID-19 coronavirus, it seems we’ve got the first real good news in a long, long time. Ikspiari, the shopping center at Tokyo Disney Resort similar to Disney Springs or Downtown Disney, is reopening on June 1st!

Closed since February 29th, Ikspiari will reopen to visitors beginning June 1st. This seems to follow similar models seen in Shanghai and Orlando, with shopping centers opening ahead of parks to test social distancing protocols.

The Oriental Land Company stated that the following procedures will be in place:

  • Not all businesses will be open. Businesses that are open will be restricted to 11AM-7PM.
  • Temperatures will be checked upon entry. Anyone with a temperature above 37.5 degrees Celsius will not be admitted.
  • Entry may be restricted during high-traffic hours.
  • Only the following entrances will be open:
    First Floor – Clock Tower Plaza, The Courtyard
    Second Floor – Maihama Station
  • Cinema Ikspiari’s ticket booth will operate from 11AM-6:30PM. No late-night shows will be offered.
  • The Tokyo Disney Resort Ticket Center will remain closed for the time being.

It’s exciting to see operations slowly resume here at Tokyo Disney Resort. The state of emergency was lifted yesterday for the whole metro area, including Chiba Prefecture. Now it’s just a matter of time until Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea themselves reopen!
