Tokyo Disney Resort Once Again Cutting Park Hours Due to 5000 Guest Capacity Requirements

Back in January, Tokyo Disney Resort announced a park hours cut from 10am to 7pm daily when the park was mandated to keep Guest capacity at 5000 people visiting each park daily due to the State of Emergency. With the 5000 Guest capacity once again in effect as the Chiba Prefecture is under a quasi-emergency, the Oriental Land Company announced today that the hours cut is being revived.


From May 17th through at least May 31st, both Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea will operate from 10am to 7pm daily. Currently, both parks are operating from 9am to 8pm.

Further, Nightfall Glow performances will be suspended. In March, the parade was starting before the sun set due to these 10am-7pm hours, so naturally conditions will not be ideal for running the parade. Performances of Big Band Beat: A Special Treat and Mickey’s Magical Music World will continue, but with only four performances a day instead of five. Additionally, the Mickey & Friends Harbor Greeting at Tokyo DisneySea will cut downt o two performances daily. Dreaming Up! will not be affected.

Other measures, such as the suspension on sales of alcohol, will continue until further notice per the request of the Japanese government. Additionally, sales of the Early Entry tickets pilot program will be suspended through at least May 31st. Bon Voyage outside Tokyo Disneyland will operate from 9am to 7pm, instead of 7:30am to 8pm. Stay tuned to WDWNT for the latest news as the quasi-emergency situation develops.
