Here's What the Shanghai Disneyland Reopening Looked Like

Amanda Tarlton

The first of Disney’s six international resorts has finally reopened its gates after being closed for over three months due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. On May 11, Shanghai Disneyland welcomed visitors to the park with all-new requirements on everything from social distancing to sanitation.


“We have a very dedicated team of custodial cleaners that we’ve increased the number of those throughout the park that are constantly wiping down all the surfaces,” Andrew Bolstein, SVP of Operations for Shanghai Disney Resort, told CNN. “We’ll be able to strike that right balance between the safety and health and confident side, and then the magic that we’re able to deliver every day.”

According to a Disney press release, the majority of the park’s rides, shows, and restaurants are open. However, interactive kids’ zones and live indoor theater shows have been shut down for the time being and there will be no parades or fireworks, instead opting for a nightly light show.
