Hong Kong Disneyland Officially Reopens
Resort rolls out new limited-edition merchandise and food and beverage offerings
Hong Kong, September 25, 2020 – Today, guests made their long-awaited return to rediscover the Disney magic as Hong Kong Disneyland park reopened its gates to the public once again. The resort is continuing its deliberate approach with health and safety measures and social distancing guidelines in alignment with the latest guidance from the local health and government authorities.
Guests will be able to witness the reimagined Disney castle – The Castle of Magical Dreams – which is now in its final stage of transformation and is scheduled to officially open in late 2020.
A measured approach offers guests a Disney getaway
The well-being of the resort’s guests and cast members is always a top priority. Health protocols will continue to meet the latest government and health authority regulations, including: increased frequency of cleaning and disinfecting in all high-guest contact areas, as well as social distancing measures in queues, restaurants (including seating arrangements), attraction vehicles and other facilities throughout the park.
There will also be a chance to meet the beloved Disney characters in a new way, including selfie spots placed across the park to allow guests to take photos with characters with appropriate social distance.
During the initial reopening stage, the park will implement a new five-day per week operation and will be closed on Tuesdays and Thursdays, except public holidays and special days designated by the resort, until further notice.
Additionally, Hong Kong Disneyland will continue to operate with reduced capacity using the online reservation system. All guests are required to reserve their visit date with valid tickets or membership cards through the Hong Kong Disneyland Park Visit Reservation website prior to arrival.
Magic Access memberships* will be extended as a result of the recent park closure and the current five-day per week operation that will be in place. Members can visit the website for more information about their memberships extensions.
* Not applicable to memberships that expired before July 15, 2020, or new membership cards issued on or after September 22, 2020.
