Shanghai Disneyland Begins Phased Reopening on May 11!
Updated: May 8, 2020
All of our lives have been changed by the COVID-19 pandemic. But let's not focus on anything bad today as we just got news that Shanghai Disneyland will be reopening to the public on May 11!
Joe Schott, President and General Manager of Shanghai Disney, states, "we’ve been deeply touched by the kind words of care and courage shared with us as we navigated the longest park closures in the history of the Disney company. In Shanghai, we took the first measured steps towards reopening in early March, with the opening of some retail, dining, and entertainment experiences at Disneytown, Wishing Star Park and the Shanghai Disneyland Hotel."
Shanghai Disneyland will implement new and enhanced health and safety measures reflecting the guidance of the local health and government authorities. A listing of these new procedures that each guest must comply with can be found here. Schott states that although "things will look a little different, know that that a magical experience awaits you at Shanghai Disneyland. Now, more than ever, Shanghai Disney Resort is a special place for families and fans to create joyful memories and celebrate being together once again."
Of course, Shanghai and its neighboring provinces have started to return to a more normal life as they encountered and dealt with the coronavirus early than the United States. Although the rest of the Disney Parks around the world are closed, they are also preparing for reopening, and when the time is right, those parks will again welcome guests.
