Itching to get back to the 'happiest place on earth'? Good news – after closing at the end of January, Shanghai Disneyland is set to start reopening cautiously next Monday 11. Tickets go on sale from 8am on Friday 8 via Disney's official channels.
According to Shanghai Disney Resort's official press release
, Shanghai Disneyland will heavily limit its daily capacity for the initial opening period with an 'advanced reservation' system in place – which means no tickets will be available for purchase on-site and annual pass holders need to book in advance.
The majority of the attractions and rides, as well as dining and shopping facilities, are set to reopen. However, to stay in line with social distancing measures, some of the more interactive attractions, like children play areas, theatre shows and free hugs remain off the cards for now. Also, parades and night-time spectaculars won't be running until further notice.
It'll be the first Disneyland to reopen since the COVID-19 pandemic shut parks globally and it's opening with a lot of new safety measures. Alongside the standard measures like showing health QR codes, wearing approved masks at all time and temperature checks before entering the park, there are a number of additional precautions including providing basic personal details and showing original IDs/travel documents upon arrival.
