Just over three months after it closed due to the extended eight-week lockdown in its namesake city, Shanghai Disneyland will finally reopen to guests on June 30.
The news was revealed on the Shanghai Disneyland Instagram page, where the park posted a Reel with the announcement.
Shanghai Disneyland closed March 21 due to the open-ended lockdown in Shanghai, which concluded on June 1. As the city’s lockdown neared its end, images surfaced of the park’s landscaping and topiaries overgrown from lack of care. The park will have been closed a total of 101 days come June 30.
Parts of the park have reopened through the month. Wishing Star Park, Blue Sky Boulevard, and the World of Disney Store reopened June 10, and the Shanghai Disneyland Hotel and Disneytown reopened June 16.
During the initial reopening phase, the majority of Shanghai Disneyland’s exciting attractions, rides, shows and shopping and dining locations will resume operations with controlled capacity. Some experiences such as Explorer Canoes, Selfie Spot with Mickey at the Gardens of Imagination and Marvel Universe will remain closed. Additional operational measures may also be adopted to accommodate social distance.
Tickets for Shanghai Disneyland will go on sale via the Shanghai Disney Resort official website, app, WeChat account, the resort’s Reservation Center and the resort’s official travel partners’ channels beginning 7:00, June 29, 2022, with a limited number of tickets available for purchase each day. During the initial reopening stage, the Shanghai Disneyland ticketing calendar will be available on a rolling 30-day basis. Guests are recommended to purchase a dated admission ticket prior to their arrival as onsite ticket booths will continue to remain closed. Reservation for Shanghai Disneyland Annual Passes will be available starting June 29, 2022 as well.
All guests, regardless of age, will be required to present a green Shanghai Health QR Code and a negative Nucleic Acid Test (NAT) taken within 72 hours (from sampling time) prior to entering any area of Shanghai Disney Resort, including Shanghai Disneyland. All guests will also be required to scan the “Venue Code” and present a green code to Cast, or present the Shanghai Health QR Code to onsite Cast for scanning to confirm the validity, upon entering Shanghai Disney Resort.
Dated tickets (including two-day tickets) during March 21 to June 29, 2022 will be extended six months starting from the park’s reopening day. Guests holding these dated tickets may choose to visit the park on any other day from June 30 to December 30, 2022. The validity period of a Shanghai Disneyland Annual Pass, which was still valid on and after March 13, 2022, will be extended and the validity of the general benefits will be extended accordingly. The Annual Pass validity extension plan and detailed policies will be communicated with Pass holders at a later date after reopening.
