Tokyo Disneyland Reopening

There’s no more June gloom and Disney magic is sprouting like wildflower.  This time the magic is coming from across the Pacific Ocean at Tokyo Disneyland Resort and Tokyo DisneySea!  On Wednesday, July 1st at 8 a.m. local time,  Tokyo Disneyland Resort reopens its doors to Guests for the first time since February 29.

Tokyo Disneyland Resort is excited to start welcoming guests back again.

Here’s a walk through time lapse of Tokyo Disneyland.

Here’s a short audio message as they let guests in at 8am.  In order to help maintain crowd control, the park has staggered entry times within the guests’ park tickets.

Guests admire Tokyo DisneySea as it welcomes guests back as well today!  It looks like many guests who were waiting in line to enter have gone over to Tokyo Disneyland as Tokyo DisneySea is still quiet!

Some Guests even showed up early for opening day so they could be ready to soak in all the magic!

Press and media gather and prepare for the gates of Tokyo Disneyland to open.  Anyone else thinking about Anna in Frozen ready to open up the gates?

Guests are preparing to have their tickets scanned upon passing through those entrance turnstiles.

“I want all of my guests to feel at ease, so I have taken all possible measures to that end. I would like to create a happiness for the park,” said Yutaka Kakinuma General Manager, Attraction Management Department of Oriental Land Company, according to Yahoo News Japan.

Cast Members and Guests alike greeted each other with so much joy before the park even opened!

Shortly after Japan lifted its state of emergency, Tokyo Disneyland announced the soon reopening of Ikspiari Shopping Center and on June 1st, Ikspiari Shopping Center at the Tokyo Disneyland Resort reopened allowing Disney fans to start enjoying a little piece of Disney magic.  It started with limited hours, as well as, only some of the amenities being available.  A limited capacity of Guests were granted access upon a temperature check at its entrance.

Here’s a quick look at what some of the safety measures look like heading to Tokyo Disneyland Resort.  Tokyo Disneyland and its Cast Members are consistently reminding guests of health and safety precautions.

Just a couple weeks ago, Tokyo Disneyland announced that it would be reopening on July 1st.  The day has finally come, and it’s opening its doors with new safety measures as seen at the reopening of both Shanghai Disneyland and Hong Kong Disneyland. Cast Members have been working tirelessly to prepare for this reopening, and they’re excited to welcome their guests back!

Guests have been so excited for Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea to reopen!  So much so, that it even crashed the website.  Many were trying to purchase tickets and find out more information on measures they would need to take before arriving to the parks.

And today, Minnie and friends couldn’t be more excited to be back with all the Disney fans, waving hello from the castle!  And other Disney characters are starting to walk around to say hello as well.

Same goes for Tokyo DisneySea as Duffy and his friends greet guests from a distance today aboard a boat.

We’ll continue to update this article as more information and announcements from Tokyo Disney Resort’s reopening day become available.
