When & What Disney Parks Might Look Like When They Finally Reopen

Disneyland and Walt Disney World could be like when they reopen after coronavirus shutdowns — empty seats on Space Mountain and no hugs from Cinderella? WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW.

Yesterday Disney said it will reopen its Shanghai Disneyland on May 11. The park, which has been closed since Jan. 25, will be the first major theme park to reopen amid the Covid-19 outbreak. To start, Disney is taking a phased approach to reopening in Shanghai. Typically, that park has around 80,000 visitors per day, but the government has mandated Disney operate at 30% capacity, or about 24,000 visitors.

“We know how much our guests have been looking forward to returning to Shanghai Disneyland, and our cast is excited to begin welcoming them back,” CEO Bob Chapek said in a statement Tuesday. “As the park reopens with significantly enhanced health and safety measures, our guests will find Shanghai Disneyland as magical and memorable as ever.”

Guests will be required to purchase their admission tickets prior to arriving at the park and will need to select a specific date for their ticket. Annual Pass holders will also need to make reservations before arriving at the park.
