Once again, every Disney Castle Park around the world will be open for Guests to enjoy. At least for now.
After experiencing yet another closure, Shanghai Disneyland is reopening its gates.
The announcement on its website states,
Shanghai Disneyland will resume operations on December 8, 2022, operating from 8:30 to 20:00 on the reopening day, marking Shanghai Disney Resort’s return to full operations.
For ticket information, please refer to the Shanghai Disney Resort official website, app, Weixin/WeChat account, the resort’s Reservation Center, or contact the resort’s official travel trade partners.
The resort’s pandemic control measures will be updated in accordance with the latest local government guidelines and guests should check and strictly follow them. Select attractions, live entertainment, restaurants and retail locations may not be available or may operate at reduced capacity. Please refer to our official app for the latest operational information.
For guests whose travel plans were impacted during the closure period, you may contact the original purchase channel with your enquiries or to request a refund or exchange.
The Cast and Imagineers of Shanghai Disney Resort thank you for your patience and understanding and look forward to welcoming you back soon.
Disney’s Mainland China Resort has suffered multiple closures just in the latter half of 2022 due to the Chinese Communist Party’s “Covid Zero” policy which is still currently keeping many of its citizens under draconian and arguably dystopian levels of lockdowns. Disney Fanatic recently reported that Shanghai Disneyland shuttered around Halloween for several weeks because somebody who had visited the Park recently tested positive for covid-19. After reopening in mid-November, the Park was ordered to close again.
Because of Xi Jinping and the CCP’s continued totalitarian response to the lingering endurance of covid-19, it is unclear how long Guests and Cast Members will be able to enjoy an open Disneyland Park before it is ordered to close once again.
The Walt Disney Company is a minority shareholder in Shanghai Disney Resort, with the state-backed Shanghai Shendi Group controlling the majority stake in the joint venture.
We at Disney Fanatic will continue to update our readers on Disney Parks news and stories as more developments come to light.
