This third temporary closure is “required by the government and in line with preventative efforts taking place across Hong Kong.” The Disney park and its officials remain in close contact with health authorities and the government about the situation at hand, and plan to announce a reopening date once it is advisable to do so.

This is the second Disney Park to re-close its gates due to COVID-19, as Disneyland Paris made the same announcement recently. The resort has since shared a reopening date set for Feb. 12, 2021.

Hong Kong Disneyland originally closed due to COVID-19 earlier this year, followed by a reopening in June and a subsequent closure in July. The resort reopened for the second time in September of this year, and unveiled its newly-transformed Castle of Magical Dreams shortly before its third closure was announced.

As of the time of writing, other international parks Shanghai Disney Resort and Tokyo Disney Resort are still open to guests, and Walt Disney World continues to be the only Disney resort open domestically.
