All Disney theme parks in Asia have now officially opened their doors with the Tokyo Disney Resort welcoming visitors starting July 1, 2020. Disneyland Tokyo and Tokyo DisneySea have been closed since February due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Reported by Landdisposition.com, Shanghai Disneyland is the first Disney park in the world that was reopened on May 11 last. This preamble still enforces a safe distance protocol and is obliged to wear a mask. Disneyland Hong Kong followed him a month later.
Oriental Land, a company that operates Disneyland Tokyo and DisneySea in Japan, has announced its guidelines for ensuring the safety of guests and staff in the future. This includes booking tickets in advance, mandatory temperature checks, and maintaining a distance while enjoying attractions.
Another part is the Disney experience that has also changed. You name it, Mickey and Minnie Mouse will drive a car in the parade, but they won’t physically greet fans or pose for photos. Disneyland will implement increased air circulation in indoor facilities and frequent disinfection of equipment and vehicles. All visitors must order tickets online, with a maximum of five tickets per order.
Oriental Land has not yet determined the exact number of people who will be allowed every day. However, this will be less than 50 percent of the capacity of ordinary amusement parks.
Reopening Disney World
Initially, Disney had planned to open 12 of its parks throughout the world in mid-July 2020. Disneyland Paris is scheduled to begin a gradual reopening on July 15.
Disney World in Orlando, Florida, has been scheduled to start a gradual reopening on July 11 slowly but has been responded negatively by union members who are worried about ensuring the safety of many cast members who work in amusement parks where Covid-19 cases continue to increase in the area.
On the other side of the United States, the July 17 reopening for Disneyland and Disney California Adventure was postponed indefinitely. This was when the state of California refused to issue reopening guidelines for amusement parks.
“Given the time needed for us to bring thousands of cast members back to work and restart our business, we have no choice but to delay reopening our theme parks and resort hotels until we receive approval from government officials,” a representative for Disney said in a statement.
