Disneyland Paris reopens today – as Hong Kong Disneyland SHUTS due to coronavirus outbreak


DISNEYLAND Paris has reopened their doors after being forced to close for four months amid the pandemic.

The French theme park was forced to close in March due to the pandemic, as France faced soaring cases of coronavirus.

Yet from today, guests can now visit both Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park, as well as the Disney Village.

The Newport Bay Club Hotel is also welcoming guests back.

Disney’s Hotel Cheyenne will open from July 20, while Hotel Santa Fe will open from August 3 – the Disneyland Hotel will then open on September 7.

Hong Kong Disneyland, however, has been forced to close again after a spike in cases.

About 300 new cases have been reported in Hong Kong since July 6, including more than 220 non-imported ones.

The city reversed plans to allow major public events with the theme park shut again in accordance with the renewed restrictions.

However, the park has introduced a number of new safety measures and regulations for anyone entering the park.

Along with mandatory advanced bookings, the parks will limit daily capacity at first so guests can continue to social distance.

Some shows and performances will not go ahead, while character interactions and meet-and-greets won’t be available at first.

Guests won’t be able to use Fast Passes, and face masks will be mandatory on anyone over the aged 11 and over.

Natacha Rafalski, President of Disneyland Paris, said: “This much-anticipated day is the result of an incredible team effort, from our cast members who are at the heart of the magic of our resort, to our public partners who have continued to provide us with invaluable support.

“Today marks the beginning of a new chapter at Disneyland Paris, where giving our guests the opportunity to share happy moments with family and friends has never been more meaningful.”

Brits can now return to France, as it was included as one of the government’s air bridge countries – meaning no quarantines back in the UK and no travel ban.

France has also stopped the mandatory two-week isolation period for British tourists.

However, the Eurostar service from the UK to Disneyland Paris won’t resume until August 2, so Disney fans will have to drive or get flights.

Current deals include two nights at Disneyland Paris with three-day passes from £306 per person.

Disney World has already reopened, despite soaring coronavirus cases in Florida – and kids over the age of two must wear face masks.
