On Wednesday 1st July, Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea will join Shanghai Disneyland and Hong Kong Disneyland in publicly reopening, restoring a little bit of magic to Japan in the process.

However, much like the Disney parks in Shanghai and Hong Kong, as well as Universal Orlando, the Japanese parks will introduce strict new health and safety measures in order to keep the lid on the coronavirus outbreak.

As we’ve seen in Hong Kong Disneyland Park and Shanghai Disneyland Park, Tokyo‘s Disney theme park has confirmed it will introduce social distancing stickers, temperature screening, and the compulsory wearing of face masks among measures until further notice.

Unsurprisingly, contact character interactions and parades will remain suspended for the time being, though Mickey and the gang will still roam the park. Tickets will not be sold on the gate and guests will only be able to attend by making a pre-booked reservation.

A statement from Tokyo Disney Resort‘s official website reads as follows;

This is to share the decision that both Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea will reopen on July 1,2020 .

With the reopening of both parks, we are implementing measures in accordance with the Amusement Park and Theme Park New Coronavirus Infection Containment Guidelines that were developed based on the government’s Basic Policies for Novel Coronavirus Disease Control, and additionally are following government agency guidance to give top priority to the health and safety of our guests and cast members in our operations.

We will be deliberate in our operations, thoroughly implementing health and safety measures such as controlled capacity through limits on attendance, limited visitors in attractions, shops, restaurants, and other facilities, regular cleaning and sanitization, proactively requesting guests to maintain social distancing, among other things.

We will also endeavor to promote health and safety by having the information filled in for the primary contact person when guests purchase tickets.

All of the cast members will work together to operate the parks so that guests are able to enjoy the experience. There may be instances in which we cause inconvenience to our guests but ask for your kind understanding and cooperation.

The new measures were previewed this week, with cast members posing as guests as part of a phased reopening to ensure that the Disney Park is ready for mass consumption on Wednesday. Coronavirus concerns remain rife and as much as we want every Disney theme park to open its doors, the safety of every Disney fan remains the highest priority.
