BREAKING: Shanghai Disneyland Reportedly Now Set to be First Disney Park to Reopen in Mid-May From COVID-19 Closure
Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 in China, Shanghai Disney Resort has been closed since late January. However, the Shanghai Disneyland Hotel, Disneytown, and Wishing Star Park resumed limited operations on March 9, with health protocols in place to keep guests safe and prevent the further spread of the virus. Now, various sources are pointing at a mid-May reopening for Shanghai Disneyland park.
With regards to reopening guidelines, another source indicates that visitors will need to make “prior appointments” in order for the resort to limit and control the number of guests in the park. No further details are available at this time regarding how the booking process would work.
Shanghai Disneyland’s reopening is generally seen as a test of sorts for the other Disney Parks to follow, and it’s likely that we’ll see similar social distancing measures to enter the parks and within attractions, restaurants, and shows once parks reopen.
