We’ve got some exciting news to share Disney friends! Hong Kong Disneyland has just announced its official opening date and it is just around the corner! The park will be opening on June 18th!
In a statement released by Hong Kong Disney, Stephanie Young Managing Director said, “We are proud to be part of the Hong Kong community, which has worked hard and shown fortitude in how it has handled the pandemic. As we carefully welcome guests back to our park, we will draw on the learnings from the recent reopening of Shanghai Disney Resort and Disney Springs at Walt Disney World.”
Young also added that Hong Kong Disneyland will be implementing new health and safety measures following the guidance of local government and health care officials.
Though Hong Kong Disneyland hasn’t yet gone into great detail regarding what the reopening protocols will be, Young did acknowledge that some things will look and feel different than before but that its important to remember that the magic will continue because – it begins with you!
Hong Kong Disneyland WILL have a phased reopening and attendance will be limited. Social distancing requirements will also be put into place in the queues, restaurants, attraction vehicles and at other facilities throughout the theme park.
