At the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, the Disneyland Resort in California, and the Disneyland Paris Resort, pandemic-inspired restrictions continue to fade away. Unfortunately, that does not appear to be the case with the Disney Parks across the Pacific.

Shanghai Disney Resort announced that it would be closing its gates indefinitely due to a resurgence of COVID-19 on March 21st.

A dream project of former Disney CEO Bob Iger Shanghai Disneyland is the largest Disney Theme Park with the largest Castle in the collection, Enchanted Storybook Castle, and unique themed lands from Walt Disney Imagineering like Adventure Isle and the pirate-themed Treasure Cove. It is the second Disney Park to close once again due to Covid-19 concerns in 2022. Earlier this year, we reported that Hong Kong Disneyland Resort closed due to government orders, and it remains closed to the day of this article’s publication. Hong Kong Disneyland states that it will reopen on April 20, but there is no opening date set yet for its sister Resort in Mainland China.
