The Walt Disney Company reopened Shanghai Disneyland today, Monday, to a limited number of visitors, ending a closure that lasted about three months as a result of the outbreak of the Coronavirus.
This is an important event for Walt Disney, and it gives a glimpse of the way it might recover from this pandemic, which forced it to close its parks in Asia, the United States and France, as well as operations in its retail stores and cruise ships.
The company has taken measures in Shanghai Disneyland that include social spacing, setting up masks and measuring temperatures for visitors and employees and will make the number of visitors “much less” than 24,000 people, or 30 percent of daily energy, a level requested by the Chinese government.
Tickets for the early days of the Shanghai Disneyland reopening were sold out quickly on Friday.
“We hope that today’s reopening will be a beacon across the world, it will give hope and inspiration to everyone, and it can show that we can overcome any challenge together,” said Joe Shot, president and general manager of Shanghai Disney Resort, at a ceremony.
