A Grand Reopening
Prior to the park’s reopening earlier today, a special celebration moment hosted by Stephanie Young, managing director of Hong Kong Disneyland Resort, took place along Main Street, U.S.A. overlooking the iconic castle. Beloved Disney characters, including Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy joined her to mark the park’s official reopening, complete with joyous fanfare and celebration.
Excited fans who entered the park for the first time in months were treated to a special surprise, when both Stephanie Young and Melody Leung, Hong Kong Disneyland Resort’s Ambassador, welcomed them warmly at the gates, to start the magical morning in true Disney style.
New Safety Measures
The reopening of Hong Kong Disneyland demonstrates a deliberate approach with new and enhanced health and safety measures, reflecting the guidance of health and government authorities. The park has instituted new measures and procedures, such as operating with limited attendance and required advance reservations, accommodating social distancing in queues, restaurants, attraction vehicles and other facilities throughout the park, and implementing increased frequency of cleaning and sanitization.
