Tokyo Disney Resort Once Again Halts Ticket Sales, Capacity Returning to 5000 Guests Amid Upcoming Semi-Emergency Measures
With a gradual resurgence in cases following the State of Emergency’s end just over a month ago, the Japanese Government and Chiba Prefecture have agreed to reinstate several of those measures to hopefully quell a fourth wave of COVID-19 infections. And of course, Tokyo Disney Resort is once again affected by these.
From April 20th through May 11th, Tokyo Disney Resort will once again cap Guest capacity at 5000 Guests, just as they did during the State of Emergency from January 8th through March 21st. Capacity was set to return to 50% today, following gradual bumps to 10,000 and 20,000 Guests on March 22nd and April 1st respectively.
The resort has already halted ticket sales once again, and are scheduled to resume on April 21st at 2:00PM JST. Additionally, the Oriental Land Company announced that closing time at Tokyo DisneySea will be pulled back to 8pm, in line with Tokyo Disneyland’s operating hours since March 22nd.
No other changes, including to entertainment such as Dreaming Up!and Mickey’s Magical Music World, were announced. All active shows remain on the park calendar. It’s possible that some shops and restaurants will re-close as they did during the State of Emergency earlier this year, but no announcements have been made yet.
To understand how low 5000 Guest capacity really is, you can check out our video tours of both parks during this year’s State of Emergency.
