Amid the slowly decreasing number of new coronavirus patients in China, Shanghai Disneyland has begun to reopen its doors to guests.
Guests are now permitted to access portions of the resort after submitting to a body temperature screening. Guests are also required to wear a mask throughout their visit to the resort, and must show their Health QR Code when accessing dining locations. For now, the reopened areas are limited to Disneytown, Wishing Star Park and Shanghai Disneyland Hotel.
According to the park’s website, “Shanghai Disneyland remains closed as we continue to closely monitor health and safety conditions and follow the direction of government regulators…as the first step of a phased reopening, Shanghai Disney Resort will partially resume operations on March 9, 2020 with a limited number of shopping, dining, and recreational experiences available in Disneytown, Wishing Star Park and Shanghai Disneyland Hotel. Each of these resort locations will operate under limited capacity and reduced hours of operation. The Disney Car and Coach Park and the Disneytown Parking Lot will also reopen”.
Shanghai Disneyland has been closed for over a month in response to the then growing numbers of new COVID-19 cases. According to USAToday, “In the latest update from China’s National Health Commission, the country said it detected 40 new cases of the virus in the past 24 hours, down from 44 new cases the previous day”.
As stated on Shanghai Disneyland’s website, the resort will continue to work with guests who need assistance in obtaining refunds for purchased theme park tickets and/or hotel stays.
