As China takes steps on its way to recovery from the coronavirus pandemic, the world’s largest international park Disney announced that it will begin a phased reopening of its Shanghai theme park.
In a report by CNN, the reopening will be under “enhanced safety measures” for the first time in more than three months on 11 May.
“We know how much our guests have been looking forward to returning to Shanghai Disneyland, and our cast is excited to begin welcoming them back,” Bob Chapek, CEO of The Walt Disney Company, said in a press release.
“As the park reopens with significantly enhanced health and safety measures, our guests will find Shanghai Disneyland as magical and memorable as ever,” he added.
On 24 January, Shanghai Disneyland was the first Disney park to close since the coronavirus pandemic started.
Additional safety measures will imposed, which includes limiting attendance with advanced registration and entry system.
“Guests are required to purchase admission tickets valid on selected date only and Annual Pass holders must make a reservation prior to arrival,” Disney said.
They will also control the crowd sizes at restaurants, rides, and other facilities.
This includes focusing on rides that “will be loaded to promote social distancing,” according to the company.
