Another Disney theme park has announced its reopening date.
Hong Kong Disneyland will begin welcoming guests once again on June 18, Disney said today. The park was the second of Disney's theme parks to close and will be the second to return, following in both cases Shanghai Disneyland, which reopened to guests last month. Disney has announced that the Walt Disney World Resort's theme parks will reopen on July 11 and July 15, followed by the Disneyland parks in California on July 17 - the 65th anniversary of the original Disneyland's opening.
Disney has yet to announce reopening dates for the Tokyo Disney and the Disneyland Paris resorts.
"We are proud to be part of the Hong Kong community, which has worked hard and shown fortitude in how it has handled the pandemic," Hong Kong Disneyland Managing Director Stephanie Young said. "As we carefully welcome guests back to our park, we will draw on the learnings from the recent reopening of Shanghai Disney Resort and Disney Springs at Walt Disney World. Similarly, we will also implement new and enhanced health and safety measures following the guidance of our local government and health care officials."
As with the other Disney parks that have announced their reopening plans, Hong Kong Disneyland will open with limited attendance, as well as social distancing requirements in queues and restaurants, on ride vehicles and at other locations throughout the park. The park also will increase the frequency of sanitization and disinfection in high-guest contact areas, such as handrails.Tweet
