BREAKING: Hong Kong Disneyland to Close Yet Again Due to Slight Rise in COVID-19 Cases

Yet again, Hong Kong Disneyland will be forced to close its gates due to a fourth wave of COVID-19 that has started to take hold in the city, according to a press conference today by Hong Kong’s Chief Executive Carrie Lam. The city recorded 76 new cases of the virus on November 30th. Disney still has not announced a closure date yet.

According to the South China Morning Post, Lam announced today that due to a fourth wave of COVID-19 starting to take hold in the city, a number of new restrictions will be re-imposed, including the forced closure of theme parks once more. Other restrictions include a required 10pm closing time and the limit of two patrons per table at restaurants, and the closure of arcades, karaoke lounges, mahjong parlors, and swimming pools.

This is now the third time Hong Kong Disneyland has been forced to close. The struggling park was originally closed from January 25th through June 18th, and again from July 15th through September 25th. They join Disneyland Resort and Disneyland Paris in being closed, leaving only Walt Disney World, Tokyo Disney Resort, and Shanghai Disneyland operating.
