Today, Disney announced that Hong Kong Disneyland will reopen to the public on June 18.
As Hong Kong Disneyland’s team carefully welcomes guests back to the park, they plan to draw on the learnings from the recent reopening of Shanghai Disney Resort and Disney Springs at Walt Disney World. Similarly, the team will also implement new and enhanced health and safety measures following the guidance of local government and health care officials.
For further information on their approach, the recent post on Disney Parks Blog from the Disney Parks, Experiences and Products Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Pamela Hymel, provides insight into Disney’s plans and considerations as they prepare for the reopening of parks, resorts, and stores. While some things will look and feel different than before, the magic continues and Disney is excited to once again share the park with you because the magic begins with you.
During this initial reopening phase, the park will open with limited attendance. The park will implement social distancing requirements in queues, restaurants, attraction vehicles, and at other facilities throughout the park, and will increase the frequency of sanitization and disinfection in high-guest contact areas.
As Hong Kong becomes the second Disney park to reopen, the rest of the Disney Parks family around the world continues to believe in magic and prepare for their own reopening moments. They’re eager to welcome guests back to reunite with family and friends—to imagine all that is possible regardless of the situation, to celebrate postponed milestones and to make magical, new memories.
We’re also thrilled to share a sneak peek of magic in the making as we enter into the final stage of the Castle of Magical Dreams transformation (pictured at the top of the article), which will be a magnificent centerpiece of the park.
