Hong Kong Disneyland reopened to the public on Thursday June 18, following a four-month closure due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Disney parks in both Hong Kong and Shanghai were closed in January, just before the Lunar New Year holidays. The Tokyo park was shut in February as the virus spread across the region.
Hong Kong’s Disney resort will be opening with “controlled capacity”, according to a statement released by the park today. The availability of attractions and entertainment can be checked on the resort’s official website.
The park has upped its hygiene game with sanitisers placed throughout and increased sanitation measures introduced.
Masks must be worn by all guests and temperature checks will be carried out at the entrance.
Social distancing will apply to queues, restaurants and attraction vehicles and close-up photography will be temporarily suspended. Costumed characters are also required to keep their distance from guests.
Visitors are being asked to make an online reservation prior to their visit through the Hong Kong Disneyland Park Visit Reservation website.
Tickets must be booked within seven days before visiting, or just one day in advance for Magic Access members. Youngsters aged under three years will continue to enjoy free-of-charge entry and will not need to make an online reservation.
Reservations will open to the general public from June 16 at 12pm, while Magic Access members can make reservations from June 15.
Guests will need to fill in a health declaration as part of the reservation process.
“Our cast members cannot wait to welcome guests back to the park,” said a spokesperson, adding that, “Guests will get a sneak peek of magic in the making with the transformation of the Castle of Magical Dreams (the centrepiece of the park). The Castle now enters its final stage of transformation before opening later this year.”
Meanwhile, the resort’s hotel services will resume gradually. The MTR service to the resort will restart on June 17.
