Shanghai Disneyland is now officially reopened! The Resort’s lengthy closure began on January 25th in light of the global health situation. However, May 11th delivered the start of a phased reopening of Shanghai Disneyland to guests.
The reopening ushered in new health protocols for guests and cast members to promote safety across the Resort. It also appears to have ushered in plenty of Disney magic by way of Disney characters, cast members, and more.
Disney has shared photos from Reopening Day, along with this message from Joe Schott, President and General Manager, Shanghai Disney Resort.
“For myself – and for our Shanghai Disney Resort cast members, who have taken great care to prepare the park for our guests – this is a very special moment.”
“Making magic means even more to us today, as we reflect on the resilience of our community; our wonderful cast members who worked so diligently to preserve the park during the closure; the enthusiasm of our guests and fans; and, of course, the determination and dedication of the medical workers and first responders who helped to make this possible.”
While we are certainly interested in the celebration of the reopening, there are also new technicalities we are noting as well. Readers may find this video by CNN.com of interest which shows the reentry process in action, including character photos, health QR codes, physical distancing measures, and more.
Another quote from Joe Schott before we wish you a Magical Day! “Thank you all for helping the magic live on, in your homes and imaginations, during these challenging times. I hope you enjoy these moments of joy and excitement from the first day of our reopening at Shanghai Disneyland!”
