Please note at this time Tokyo Disney Resort has not yet announced a reopening date from its temporary closure for either of its theme parks, Tokyo Disneyland or Tokyo DisneySea — Only for its shopping district, Ikspiari. It’s also important to note that Tokyo Disney updated its website on May 25 with this message:
The temporary closures of Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea have been extended in response to the state of infections of the new coronavirus (COVID-19) as well as requests from the government and local municipalities.
The reopening of the Parks was to be decided in mid-May; however, based on the extension of the state of emergency declaration, hereafter, the decision on the reopening date will be made and announced once the requests from Government and local municipalities have been lifted.
Additionally, the opening date for the Tokyo Disneyland major expansion area will be determined once the situation can be gauged after reopening both parks.
The only Disney Resort that has reopened its theme park at this time is Shanghai Disneyland, which opened up its gates on May 11.
