Today was a big day for the Disney theme parks, as one Park finally rejoined the ranks of many, reopening their gates after multiple closures.

Hong Kong Disneyland was heavily hit by the pandemic, which resulted in the theme park having to shut down on multiple occasions.

On January 5, we announced that Hong Kong Disneyland would be closing for two weeks starting on January 7 to try and halt the pandemic spread in the area. The closure was only meant to last for 14 days, but the Park then extended that closure for another two weeks after only one week of closure. That closure extended once again through to April 21.

Hong Kong Disneyland Resort is home to Hong Kong Disneyland Park and is located near Penney’s Bay, Lantau Island, Hong Kong. It was also just announced that Hong Kong will suspend for a month transit flights from around 150 countries and territories considered high risk because of the coronavirus, deepening the global financial hub’s isolation.

Hong Kong Disneyland is an incredibly popular Park that brings in millions of Guests each year. After opening in 2005, Guests quickly came to love the theme park as much as Walt Disney World Resort or Disneyland Resort! Much like its American counterparts, Hong Kong Disneyland has a ton of Disney Hotels to visit!

With fireworks (Cherish the Memories) returning to the Castle of Magical Dreams in Fantasyland next year and international travel reopening, there will surely be a lot more tourism in 2022 to Hong Kong Disneyland! Plus, who would not want to check out Arendelle: World of Frozen, a new land with amazing attractions that are currently under construction.

The Park reopened with a surprise cavalcade called The Magic Is Now. Disney Magical Kingdom Blog (@DMK_Blog) posted:

【Special Reopening Moment: “The Magic is Now” Surprise Moment】🚂

🏰✨ The Magic is Back! Our favorite Disney Stars, along with Michael Moriarty (managing director), 2022-2023 Ambassadors (Lily Chan & Tony Dick), & Cast Members welcomed the Guests back to Hong Kong Disneyland!

This was not something Guests were expecting, so it truly flooded the Park with magic, leaving many stunned, and others in tears.

It should be noted that Guests are required by law to use the “LeaveHomeSafe” app and fulfill the “Vaccine Pass” requirements upon entering the Park and specified premises.
