Hong Kong Disneyland reopened in June, only to close again about a month later in July, but in alignment with the latest guidance from health and government authorities, Hong Kong Disneyland is reopening again on Sept. 25, 2020.
Disney has said the resort will continue its measured approach with health and safety measures such as capacity control, health screenings, temperature checks, requiring face masks, social distancing, and increased cleaning and sanitization.
Five-day week operation and online reservation
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 from time to time) until further notice. The park will also continue to control capacity as required by the government. The online reservation system will remain in place, with all guests being 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 members may begin reserving their visit dates starting Sep 22. Reservations for other guests will begin at noon on Sep 23. Guests are also required to make a health declaration as part of their reservation process.
As a result of the recent closure and the current five-day per week operating schedule that will be in place, the resort is providing membership extension for Magic Access members*. Members can visit the website for more information about their membership extensions.
The park’s operation and related arrangements will continue to be reviewed on an ongoing basis and adjusted as necessary to take into account the latest government regulations.
Health and safety measures remain a priority
Hong Kong Disneyland Resort has said they have health and safety protocols in place throughout the resort and has already increased the frequency of cleaning and disinfection in all high-guest contact areas. After reopening, the park will continue to implement social distancing measures in queues, restaurants (including seating arrangements), attraction vehicles and other facilities throughout the park, reflecting the latest government regulations.
Similar to other theme parks, character experiences will be offered in a new way, including selfie spots around the park to allow guests to take photos with their favorite characters with appropriate social distance. Meanwhile, in compliance with the government’s latest regulations, live performances will be restricted to outdoor venues during the initial reopening stage until further notice.
Ticket and hotel offers to preview the transformed castle prior to opening
A variety of special hotel and ticket packages are now available for guests to see the reimagined Disney castle in its final stage of transformation and enjoy a Disney staycation. The Castle of Magical Dreams is slated to launch in celebration of the resort’s 15th anniversary in late 2020.
To provide greater flexibility in planning the visit, free cancellations for park tickets and hotel bookings are available to guests through Dec 31, 2020. For more details on tickets, hotels, dining and transportation, please visit hongkongdisneyland.com.
