“Disney’s Shanghai Park Reopening Is a ‘Great Blueprint’ for USA”
Shanghai Disneyland opened today with its new protocols for safety of its guests and Cast Members, and some analysts are saying that the USA should follow the same safety measures.
Alexia Quadrani, media analyst at J.P. Morgan, joins “Squawk Box” to discuss what Shanghai Disneyland’s reopening could mean for Disney’s recovery.
As we were prepared for, new protocols were put into place when Shanghai Disneyland reopened to keep all Guests and Cast Members safe and healthy. Some of these protocols include:
- Limited attendance with reacquired advanced ticketing reservations
- Socially distancing in queues, restaurants, ride vehicles, and other facilities throughout the Park
- Increased frequency of sanitizing and disinfection
- Masks and temperature screens will be required
- Contact tracing will be implemented
Most attractions, rides, some shows, and shopping and dining locations will resume operations – with controlled attendance. Some experiences such as play areas and theater shows will remain closed.
Parades and nighttime spectaculars will not be offered during the initial reopening phase. However, a special Disney character procession, Mickey and Friends Express will be offered several times a day. In the evening, the Enchanted Storybook Castle will come to life with light and music with Evening Magical Moments. Everyone’s favorite Disney characters will make appearances in a new way as they visit all the lands to greet and welcome everyone back to the Park. During the initial phase, one-on-one interaction with characters and close-up photos will not be permitted.
