It appears that Disney fans from America and other nations could return to the Tokyo Disney Resort sooner than one would expect. According to Nikkei, Japan began to withdraw some of its pandemic-related international travel restrictions yesterday, October 1.
As of right now, that new admittance is minimal. According to Nikkei,
“The government will limit entry to 1,000 people per day. Those who have permission for stays of more than three months will be able to enter but must quarantine for two weeks upon entry…However, the newly eased restrictions will not apply to tourists for short-term stays of 90 days or less.”
But while your visit to Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea may still be on hold, this decision shows that Japan is beginning to make some progress towards reopening.
This news, hopeful for all those looking to return to Tokyo Disney, comes shortly after Disney’s oldest overseas resort opened its new expansion of its Fantasyland to include an awe-inspiring Beauty and the Beast-themed area and attraction, as well as a Baymax attraction in Tomorrowland and a Minnie Mouse attraction in Toontown.
