Hong Kong Disneyland prepares to reopen to visitors this week

Jun 15 2020, 9:31 pm

Similar to its international counterparts Shanghai Disneyland, Disneyland California, and Walt Disney World, Hong Kong Disneyland is set to begin a phased reopening strategy starting this Thursday, June 18.

As with the other parks, this decision comes with heightened health and safety procedures that “will demonstrate a deliberate approach” to reflect the instructions of health and government officials.

During the initial reopening period, all guests must book the date in which they plan to visit through the new Hong Kong Disneyland reservation website. Guests holding general admission tickets must book their reservations seven days before they plan to attend. Once they arrive at the park on their specified date, guests holding reservations must present their tickets to be granted entry. However, the usual rule surrounding children under three-years-old will still apply. They do not require a reservation and are eligible for free admission to the park.

Magic Access members will be able to reserve their visit as of June 15, with the system being made available for the public from June 16.

As well, to ensure appropriate physical distancing measures, Hong Kong Disneyland will be reopening at limited capacity, the official website explains.

All venues within the facility, including restaurants, shopping, and attractions, will also open at limited capacity, and guests can learn of availabilities for these areas through the resort’s official website as well as the app.

In terms of updated health and hygiene procedures, the park will be implementing multiple measures, including physical distancing markers for queues, dining establishments, attractions, and other areas.

As well, character meet and greets and close contact photos will be suspended temporarily. However, other character experiences that can be provided with physical distancing measures will be accessible in various areas across the park. There will also be increased cleanings and sterilization for highly frequented and high-contact guest areas as well as additional hand sanitization stations. All Cast Members and guests will also have their temperatures checked at all entry points before being allowed to enter.

“We all have an important role to play in promoting health and safety,” the site continues. “As we do our part, we also ask our guests to do theirs, by wearing face masks, respecting social distancing and other guidelines.”

Guests will also be treated to a preview of the “magic in the making” through the alterations of the Castle of Magical Dreams, the focal point of the venue, which is now entering its final stage of modifications before its unveiling later this year to bring “new magic to Hong Kong Disneyland.”
