The Disneyland Paris Resort will begin its phased reopening on July 15 - the day after France celebrates Bastille Day - the company announced today.
That's also the day that the final two of the four Walt Disney World theme parks will reopen to the public. Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom and Disney's Animal Kingdom return on July 11, while Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios reopen July 15.
In Paris, Disneyland Park, Walt Disney Studios Park, Disney’s Newport Bay Club Hotel and the Disney Village shopping and dining area will reopen July 15. Disney's Hotel Cheyenne will reopen on July 20, followed by Disney's Hotel Santa Fe on August 3 and the Disneyland Hotel on September 7. Reopening dates for Disney's Sequoia Lodge Hotel, and Disney's Davy Crocket Ranch will be announced later, the resort said today. It did not mention the rethemed Disney's Hotel New York — The Art of Marvel.
"All of us at Disneyland Paris are excited to be on the path to reopening over the next few weeks," Disneyland Paris President Natacha Rafalski said. "Making magic means even more, as we reflect on the resilience of our cast members and community, the enthusiasm of our guests and fans, and the positive momentum of many reopenings in the tourism industry across Europe. We are looking forward to the return of our cast members and reopening our gates for guests to once again enjoy."
In order to limit capacity to promote safe social distancing inside the parks, Disneyland Paris Resort theme park ticket holders, including annual passhoders, must register online to reserve the date of their visit. Guests staying at a Disneyland Paris hotel on a vacation package will have the park dates guaranteed.
The Shanghai Disneyland and Hong Kong Disneyland parks have reopened already, while the Disneyland Resort in California is awaiting state approval to return on July 17 - the 65th anniversary of the original Disneyland's opening. The Oriental Land Co. has not yet announced a proposed reopening date for Tokyo Disneyland or Tokyo DisneySea.
