Shanghai Disneyland to Reopen on Thursday

After a nearly three-month closure, Shanghai Disneyland is set to welcome guests back on June 30. The closure happened in March in response to China’s worst COVID-19 outbreak since the early days of the pandemic.

Ticket sales for the resort will begin on Wednesday with the park capping capacity limits as they begin a phased reopening. Some attractions, such as Marvel Universe and the Explorer Canoes, will initially remain closed. All guests will need to present a negative PCR test result received within 72 hours to gain entry, The Walt Disney Company added.

Shanghai Disneyland has been shut down since March 21, amid a massive surge of the Omicron variant cases in the territory. This ultimately resulted in a total lockdown for the city’s 22 million residents. Shanghai lifted stay-at-home orders on June 1. The Universal Studios Beijing Resort resumed operations on June 25 after weathering a two-month lockdown of its own. Hong Kong Disneyland had closed in January of this year and was able to reopen in mid-April, as cases in the area had gone down dramatically.

The Shanghai Disney Resort is Disney’s second-largest physical entertainment location in the world, only behind Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. The Chinese park is a joint venture between Disney and a state-backed entity known as the Shendi Group. The Chinese firm holds a 57 percent ownership stake, while Disney retains creative and operational control.
