The Magic of Walt Disney World is slowly circling the globe as Disney announced the reopening of Disneyland in Hong Kong today. In an email shared today by Stephanie Young, Managing Director of Hong Kong Disneyland, you could just feel the excitement.
At Hong Kong Disneyland Resort, it is my privilege to work with an incredible team of cast members to help share the magic with our guests. Over the past few months, we’ve been moved by your understanding and patience as we navigated an unprecedented closure. During this time, we took measured steps to maintain guest offerings at our hotels, with adjusted levels of service, and in May we reopened additional dining experiences.
Today, as our surrounding community takes steps towards recovery, I’m thrilled to announce that Hong Kong Disneyland will also reopen to the public on June 18.
We are proud to be part of the Hong Kong community, which has worked hard and shown fortitude in how it has handled the pandemic. As we carefully welcome guests back to our park, we will draw on the learnings from the recent reopening of Shanghai Disney Resort and Disney Springs at Walt Disney World. Similarly, we will also implement new and enhanced health and safety measures following the guidance of our local government and health care officials.
Here at spokesmayne.co and also on Disney Parks Blog, we have shared the recent blog post from the Disney Parks, Experiences and Products Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Pamela Hymel as she explains Disney’s approach to reopenings and I hope that you go read them if you have not already. While some things will look and feel different than before, the magic continues and you can tell that they are excited to once again share the park with everyone.
She went on to say that during this initial reopening phase, the park will open with limited attendance. The park will implement social distancing requirements in queues, restaurants, attraction vehicles and at other facilities throughout the park, and will increase the frequency of sanitization and disinfection in high-guest contact areas.
As Hong Kong becomes the second Disney park to reopen, the rest of the Disney Parks family around the world continues to believe in magic and prepare for their own reopening moments. Like us they’re eager to welcome guests back to reunite with family and friends – to imagine all that is possible regardless of the situation, to celebrate postponed milestones and to make magical, new memories.
We’re also thrilled to share a sneak peek of magic in the making as we enter into the final stage of our Castle of Magical Dreams transformation, which will be a magnificent centerpiece of the park.
