PHOTOS: Disney Releases Photos of New Socially-Distanced Character Interactions at Shanghai Disneyland Ahead of Reopening
With just days to go before Shanghai Disneyland reopens to guests on Monday, May 11th, Disney has released photos of the “character processions” that will take place at the park for the foreseeable future.
With meet-and-greets temporarily suspended due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, characters will be seen in a special procession called Mickey and Friends Express, which will take place several times daily.
To preserve the story of the park, face characters, such as Disney Princesses, will not wear masks, so they must be kept at a safe distance from guests.
Elsewhere in the park, characters will make appearances in groups throughout the park’s lands to welcome guests back to Shanghai Disneyland.
And when they’re ready to welcome back guests, they’ll be sporting some new colorful outfits reminiscent of spring and summer fun!
Even Duffy, ShellieMay, StellaLou, Gelatoni, and CookieAnn are getting in on the fun!
In the evenings, Enchanted Storybook Castle will come to life with light and music at dusk each day with Evening Magical Moments. While this may not be completely like the Disney Parks as they were prior to the months-long shutdown, it’s good to know that the magic is slowly coming back.
