The Shanghai Disney Resort is set to reopen Thursday, June 30, after the park has been closed for over three months as Shanghai weathered its worst Omicron outbreak of the pandemic.
The park will resume ticket sales Wednesday, and attendance levels will be capped during the first phase of reopening, part of a “careful ramp-up of operations.” All guests will need to present a negative PCR test result received within 72 hours to gain entry and some attractions, such as Marvel Universe and the Explorer Canoes, will initially remain closed.
Additional operational measures may also be adopted to accommodate social distance. Guests are advised to check the resort’s official website and app for details on attraction and entertainment availability and operations.
“I would like to thank all of our guests and fans for your support and passion for Disney. Throughout this period, you kept the magic of Disney alive with your optimism and community spirit, and we are excited to welcome you back to a place full of happiness and wonder,” said Joe Schott, President and General Manager of Shanghai Disney Resort. “I am also very appreciative of our Cast Members who worked tirelessly throughout our closure to ensure a safe and magical return for our guests. I look forward to seeing you all very soon!”
