Good News for Shanghai Disneyland as Many Countries Around the World Work to Get Back to Normal Routines Following Coronavirus.
“Life can get you down,” Joe Schott, president and general manager of the Shanghai Disney Resort said of the reopening back in May. “Our brand is about hope.”
Shanghai Disneyland reopened to guests to limited capacity and a whole host of restrictions for guests and castmembers on May 4, 2020. The park reopened following an extended closure of ALL Disney parks across the globe due to coronavirus.
The Chinese government limited capacity at the park to 24,000 people daily, fewer than one-third of its pre-outbreak capacity when the park first reopened.
Shanghai Disneyland announced on August 18, they will be increasing their theme park capacity from 30% to 50% following updated government guidance.
China’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism recently issued the “Notice on Further Business Resumption of Tourism Enterprises,” which raises the operating capacity of tourism sites from 30% to 50% of permitted capacity. As a result of this policy change, and as overall market conditions continue to rebound, Shanghai Disney Resort is increasing the daily capacity of the resort’s theme park, Shanghai Disneyland, and, effective August 24, 2020, will transition the current Advanced Reservation Period to a new reservation phase, aiming to provide more flexibility for guests to plan and enjoy their park visit. During this new reservation phase, the park will continue to fully comply with regulatory directives on reservations, staggered arrival and applicable capacity controls. With the increased daily capacity beginning August 24, 2020, Shanghai Disneyland Annual Pass holders and General Admission Ticket holders will be able to visit the park on any eligible day based on the condition of their pass or ticket*. All other guests will be able to purchase park tickets and visit the park on the same day, subject to ticket availability. To comply with regulatory directives, all guests, including Shanghai Disneyland Annual Pass holders and infants under 3 years old or under 1.0 meter in height, will still be required to make a reservation by submitting their visitation date and personal information to obtain a Shanghai Disneyland Reservation QR Code prior to their arrival at the park’s Main Entrance. Starting from the first day of the new phase on August 24, 2020, the validity period of Annual Passes and General Admission Tickets that were impacted by the park closure and Advanced Reservation Period will be extended accordingly.
