Disney Announces When It Will Start Re-Opening Its Theme-Parks

Disney Announces When It Will Start Re-Opening Its Theme-Parks

Disney has set out plans to re-open some of its parks, with updates on Disneyland Paris, Shanghai Disneyland and Disney World Resort.

Disney parks across the world were forced to shut earlier this year as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

But they are slowly making plans to re-open, and introduce visitors again.

Disneyland Paris was the first to update its website and make hotel booking available from as early as July 1st, although there is no official update on when the park itself will be back up and running.

Meanwhile, Walt Disney Co announced it would begin a phased re-opening of Disney Springs in Florida next month - which is part of the Disney World Resort.

In a post on the theme park's official blog, Disney said the entertainment complex would start to resume activity on 20th May.

The news comes as the company recently announced Shanghai Disneyland is set to reopen on Monday, as China begins to recover from the devastating pandemic.

The park is the only one to be fully re-opened, but will run with various changes, including a new rule which insists guest pre-purchase admission tickets, and a new temperature checking policy which will be in place before anybody enters the park.

All guests in the park will also be expected to wear masks except when eating, and will be expected to practice social distancing even when queuing for rides or restaurants.

While Florida's main theme park will presently remain closed, even the shopping district will be implementing brand new safety measures.

"Disney Springs will begin to reopen in a way that incorporates enhanced safety measures, including increased cleaning procedures, the use of appropriate face coverings by both cast members and guests, limited-contact guest services and additional safety training for cast members," the blog added.

Disney CEO Bob Chapek added that it was too soon to discuss the re-opening of Anaheim and Orlando's main parks.
