Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea will reopen on July 1, the Oriental Land Co. announced Tuesday in Japan.
As has been the case at other Disney theme parks opening around the world, guests will be required to pass a temperature check to enter and the park will be supporting safe physical distancing in queues, attractions, stores and dining area. Enhanced sanitation and cleaning also will be implemented throughout the resort. Park hours will be 8am-8pm.
Tokyo Disney also will require guests to wear masks, although its reopening guidelines say that guests who maintain proper physical distance will be allowed to remove their masks while outside during the summer to avoid heat-related ailments.
Date-specific tickets will go on sale Thursday. Only date-specific tickets will be honored at this time. There will be a lottery system announced at a later date to determine visit dates for annual passholders. Tickets without dates may be extended or refunded.
The Disney Ambassador Hotel, Tokyo DisneySea Hotel MiraCosta, and Tokyo Disneyland Hotel will reopen to guests the evening before, on June 30. And there's still no word on an opening date for the Tokyo Disneyland expansion attractions, including the new Beauty and the Beast ride.
The Tokyo Disney Resort parks are the last of Disney's theme parks to announce their reopening date, although they will not be the final parks to return. That designation will go to Disneyland and Disney California Adventure in Anaheim, which are slated to reopen on July 17, pending state of California approval. Whether they get it or not, they still will be the last Disney parks to reopen, as Shanghai and Hong Kong already have returned, and the Disneyland Paris and Walt Disney World parks all are scheduled to have opened by July 15.Tweet
