The theme park said today that it is reopening Disneyland Park, Walt Disney Studios Park, Disney’s Newport Bay Club Hotel and Disney Village in line with the French government’s coronavirus guidance.

All reopened parks will have “enhanced health and safety measures” in place for guests. This includes limits on attendance and advanced ticketing and reservations to “accommodate controlled guest density that supports government guidance on physical distancing”.

Due to these safety measures, certain experiences and events will not be available at the time the park reopens or may be modified depending on how sanitary measures and recommendations from public authorities evolve.

All Cast Members and guests aged 11 or older will be required to wear face coverings while at the resort.

“The focus continues to be on promoting the health and safety of Cast Members and guests, as we welcome guests back to Disneyland Paris,” Disneyland Paris said in a statement.

Here’s everything we know about Disneyland Paris reopening…

When will Disneyland Paris reopen?

Disneyland Paris is set to partially reopen on Wednesday 15th July with enhanced health and safety measures in place.

The theme park announced the temporary closure back in March amid the spread of the coronavirus.

At the time, Disneyland Paris bosses said it would remain closed until the end of the month, but as lockdowns were brought into effect all around the world and social distancing measures ramped up, the closure was extended.
