Disneyland Paris reopening

After a couple of days of Annual Passholder previews, today Disneyland Paris is finally reopening to the world! It’s so good to see Disney’s presence in Europe back open to the world and like all other Disney theme parks, the park is opening with new rules to make sure everyone is being kept safe.

This includes a temporary suspension of FastPass, mask-wearing being enforced and of course, strict social distancing as explained by Disney below:

In line with guidance from French government and health authorities, physical distancing will be implemented throughout the resort in queues, ride vehicles, shops, hotels, restaurants and other facilities, and signage will be displayed as a reminder.

As an Annual Passholder to Disneyland Paris myself, it is great to see my home resort open though traveling from the UK to the resort is still not going to be easy. While many UK guests are already in the resort, there are those (like me) who can’t risk public transport just yet.

That being said, Disneyland Paris is looking magical as it reopens to the world, here are some reactions from fans as they walked through the gates for the first time in months both today and during the previews over the last few days:

Firstly, showing just how excited some of the characters are to be back in the park seeing guests and also showing how Disneyland Paris is handling social distancing meets with characters:

Just like the Walt Disney World Resort, Disneyland Paris is still allowing characters to meet guests, just in a new way that allows for the safety of both performers and guests alike. We think the Mickey Mouse and Chip and Dale meet and greet is the best example of a socially-distanced meet that we have seen to date!

The new entrance sign to the main theme park has split fans but nobody can deny its certainly going to draw attention:

As with Walt Disney World and the other Disney theme parks, Disneyland Paris has spent a lot of time making the parks feel safe for guests with the reopening plan:

Though the opening didn’t go without a couple of issues as guests had to wait outside the main entrance as Cast Members let cars in by small groups:

Now onto the real magic, here are guests walking into the park for the first time in months this morning:

It is so good to see the parks at Disneyland Paris open again. We hope everyone who decides to visit, stays safe and follows all of the safety protocols put into place by Disney.
