Hong Kong Disneyland theme park has closed its doors once again after 52 new coronavirus cases were reported in the city. The Hong Kong park had been open for less than a month, reopening on June 18 after initially closing in January.
The park issued a statement that read, “As required by the government and health authorities in line with prevention efforts taking place across Hong Kong, Hong Kong Disneyland Park will temporarily close from July 15, 2020.”
The resort hotels will remain open with adjusted level of services. Enhanced health and safety measures that reflect the guidance of health and government authorities have been put in place, such as social distancing measures and increased cleaning and sanitization.
During its initial reopening phase, all guests, including park ticket holders, Magic Access members and complimentary ticket holders, were required to make a reservation for their visit date with their valid tickets or membership cards through the Hong Kong Disneyland Park Visit Reservation website.
At reopening, the majority of Hong Kong Disneyland’s attractions, shopping and dining locations resumed operations, with controlled capacity.
The park had implemented social distancing in queues, restaurants, attraction vehicles and other facilities throughout the park. Character experiences requiring close interaction and close-up photos were temporarily suspended.
The frequency of sanitization and disinfection measures in high-guest contact areas was increased in order to augment the standards of cleanliness already in place throughout the resort, and extra hand sanitizers were available.
