Disneyland in Hong Kong is set to reopen on June 18, after five months of closure.
Stephanie Young, Hong Kong Disneyland’s Managing Director, announced the exciting news on June 14.
Here’s everything you should know about it!
Statement from Hong Kong Disneyland’s Director
Young made it clear that she is grateful for the fans’ understanding and patience, when they had to close the theme park.
The closure was caused by the global situation, which also resulted in other Disney theme parks to close.
We took measured steps to maintain guest offerings at our hotels, with adjusted levels of service, and in May we reopened additional dining experiences. Today, as our surrounding community takes steps towards recovery, I’m thrilled to announce that Hong Kong Disneyland will also reopen to the public on June 18.Stephanie Young, Managing Director of Hong Kong Disney Resort
What You Need to Know Before You Visit
So, what should guests be aware of before the reopening?
Just like Shanghai Disney Resort and Disney Springs, Hong Kong Disneyland will also implement new and enhanced health and safety measures.
During the initial phase, the park will resume its operations at reduced guest capacity.
For this reason, visitors must first make their reservations through the park’s official website beginning from 7 days before their visit.
Magic Access members can reserve 1 day in advance starting from June 15.
Meanwhile, reservations for other guests will start on June 16, at 12 p.m.
Furthermore, Hong Kong Disneyland will extend Magic Access memberships, unused park tickets, and other date-specific products.
Free cancellations for hotel room bookings and park tickets will also be available within the specified period.
All guests must wear face masks except when dining.
They must also undergo temperature screening before they enter the park.
The park will implement physical distancing in attractions, vehicles, restaurants, queues, and other facilities throughout Hong Kong Disneyland.
According to Young, they will also increase sanitization and disinfection in high-guest contact areas to ensure cleanliness.
Regarding the visitor experience, Young said:
While some things will look and feel different than before, the magic continues, and we’re excited to once again share our park with you because the magic begins with you.Stephanie Young, Managing Director of Hong Kong Disney Resort
