Tokyo Disney To Reduce The Number Of Guests Allowed Into the Parks
In a piece that appeared in The Japan Times this morning, Oriental Land Co. (which owns Tokyo Disney) said in a statement that it will be implementing new caps on the daily number of visitors allowed into both Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea.
According to reports, attendance is currently capped at 20,000 guests at each park but this is being reduced to a mere 5,000. The change will go into effect on Tuesday and will be in place until May 11, 2021.
The cause for the capacity limitations are due to NEW emergency measures being put into place to curb the spread of COVID-19 in Urayasu and four other cities across Japan. For those unfamiliar, Tokyo Disney is located in Uraysu in Chiba Prefecture.
In addition to the smaller crowds, Tokyo DisneySea will also be reducing its hours closing at 8 pm instead of 9 pm starting tomorrow (Tuesday April 19) and running until May 11th. Tokyo Disney already closes at 8 pm so its operating hours will remain the same. The opening times for both parks will remain the same at both parks which is 9am.
The current attendance level of 20,000 was only implemented on April 1, 2021 so it hasn’t been in place for long.
