Shanghai Disneyland Reopening on December 8

The Shanghai Disneyland Resort has had a rough time staying open due to China’s “dynamic zero-COVID” strategy. The park, which reopened on November 25, closed four days later. Now, the park is being reopened on Thursday, December 8, 2022.

At this time, the park will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., and some areas may be operating at a reduced capacity or closed to guests completely. It is best to refer to the Shanghai Disneyland app for the latest operational information.

The resort’s pandemic control measures will be updated in accordance with the latest local government guidelines and guests should check and strictly follow them.

For guests whose travel plans were impacted during the closure period, it is recommended that they contact the original purchase channel with your inquiries or request a refund or exchange.

Park Ticket Information

Guests with tickets to visit Shanghai Disneyland on and/or from November 29, 2022, throughout the time the Park is closed may choose to visit the park on any other day within the next six months from the park’s reopening day. Tickets can be redeemed at the park entrance turnstiles with the original Government Identity Card or Travel Document that was used to purchase the original tickets on the day of the guest’s next visit, and a reservation will not be required.
