Reopening the Disney Parks has been quite the challenge, as each Park has had to overcome a ton of challenges and difficulties associated with operating safely during the ongoing pandemic. Each Park has had its own set of issues, with COVID-19 cases varying in each country.
Disneyland Paris has had a rough go, closing multiple times but now seems to be on track to returning to a more normal state of operations. Both Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios have been undergoing a lot of change as the Park’s prepare for the 30th anniversary, which will kick off next year. Although plenty of updates are being made, there are still parts of the Resort that need to reopen, and today marks another checkmark on that list!

The Resort is now open to Guests; however, some renovations are currently ongoing. As noted by Disney:
To create an ever-more magical experience for our guests, Disney’s Sequoia Lodge facade is undergoing an enhancement project that will continue until Autumn 2022⁽¹⁾. Renovation work will take place during the daytime for an undisturbed night. Some rooms may be impacted, and the swimming pool and fitness centre will be closed from mid-January to Summer 2022⁽¹⁾. All other activities and services at the hotel will not be affected.
Provisional dates only, subject to change.
At Disneyland Paris Resort, the Disneyland Hotel is one that Guests cannot get enough of. It is the flagship Resort of the Disney Paris Resort, and is currently receiving some upgrades described by Disney as:
A royal renovation
The Disneyland Hotel will be transformed into a fairy tale kingdom fit for our beloved Disney Princesses and Princes. From classics like Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty, to more recent hits like Frozen and Tangled. Expect refined, storytelling décor and magical touches that will surprise and delight the whole family, as only Disneyland Paris can do.
At Disneyland Paris, lots of changes are coming to Walt Disney Studios as well as their Disneyland Park, with the 30th anniversary just months away. Walt Disney Studios is adding a massive addition that will include Star Wars, Marvel, and Frozen, as well as their very own Avengers Campus, which will be the first section to open in the Park. One of the biggest changes that we have seen is on Sleeping Beauty Castle, which was covered by a box facade for months. Recently, Disney began to uncover the castle to reveal a stunning, magical masterpiece.
