Parts of Shanghai Disney Resort will partially resume operations on June 10 with limited capacity and reduced opening hours as the COVID-19 epidemic wanes in the city.
Wishing Star Park, the World of Disney Store and Blue Sky Boulevard will resume operations first. The Disneyland amusement park, Disneytown and two resort hotels will remain closed until further notice.
Disney will continue to observe health and safety protocols. The resort will require all guests to provide a negative nucleic acid test taken within 72 hours before entering the park.
This is Shanghai Disney Resort’s second extended closure due to Covid-19. The resort was shut for four months from January to May in 2020. It again closed on March 21 due to the flare-up in coronavirus cases in Shanghai.
“The full reopening of the Disney resort will be a watershed moment, because it marks the city’s full return to normality,” said Li Wenjie, CEO of Shanghai Yaheng International Travel. “But the resort will still implement its reopening in a gradual manner by limiting the number of visitors and imposing strict virus controls, initially.”
