The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has affected every facet of our lives it seems. From grocery shopping to visiting hospitals, life as we know it has changed. Not only has the virus affected businesses like restaurants and movie theaters, it has also affected the theme park industry.

Guests visiting the Disney Parks and Resorts have surely noticed how many things have changed and possibly what they may have taken for granted in pre-pandemic times. From mask mandates to new rules and regulations, visiting the Disney Parks is a lot different than it used to be. One international Disney Park has had continuous trouble dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic as of late, completely closing for a seemingly-indefinite amount of time.

On January 5, we reported that Hong Kong Disneyland would be closing for two weeks beginning on January 7 to try and stop the current COVID-19 spread in the area. The closure was only meant to last for 14 days, but the Park had extended that closure for another two weeks — just one week after the initial closure.
