Shanghai Disney Resort to begin 'phased reopening'

March 8, 2020, 11:47 PM · Closed since January 25 due to the outbreak of the Covid-19 virus in China, the Shanghai Disney Resort announced today that it will begin a "phased reopening" on Monday, March 9.

The Shanghai Disneyland theme park will remain closed for the time being, but "a limited number of shopping, dining, and recreational experiences" in the adjacent Disneytown shopping district and the Shanghai Disneyland hotel will reopen.

The resort will enforce measures designed to limit the spread of the virus as it reopens to visitors.

"In accordance with relevant regulations, every guest entering Shanghai Disney Resort will be required to undergo temperature screening procedures upon their arrival and will need to present their Health QR Code when entering dining venues, and are required to wear a mask during their entire visit. Guests will also be reminded to maintain respectful social distances at all times while in stores, queues and restaurants," the resort posted on its website today.

Meanwhile, the Hong Kong Disneyland theme park remains closed, as does the Tokyo Disney Resort in Japan. The Tokyo Disney parks are scheduled to reopen next week, on March 16, though there has been no word yet about a reopening of Hong Kong Disneyland nor of the Shanghai Disneyland theme park.

I wonder if the shopping area will bring in the people if the park is still closed. Most people go to Downtown Disney in Anaheim because they go to the park, but I wonder if the Shanghai park is different in that aspect.
