When will Disneyland and Disney World reopen? New rules and latest holiday advice

After the coronavirus pandemic put a halt to the tourism and hospitality industries, things are slowly starting to get back to normal.

Flights are resuming and countries are starting to welcome back tourists, while hotels, restaurants and attractions are planning for a safe reopening. 

While the FCO still bans Brits from all but essential foreign travel, many are hoping this advice will change in time for a summer holiday abroad.

Here’s the latest information on when Disneyland and Disney World resorts will reopen, what the rules will be, and what happens if your holiday is cancelled:

When will Disneyland parks reopen?

Shanghai Disney Resort has already reopened, and is selling a limited number of advanced tickets for each day.

In Florida, Walt Disney World theme parks will begin to reopen from 11 July. 

There is not currently a set reopening date for Tokyo Disney Resort, Disneyland California, Disneyland Paris or Hong Kong Disneyland.

They are expected to be closed until at least 14 July.

If you were due to visit any of these parks before 15 July, you should assume your holiday is not going ahead. Any bookings on or after 15 July are currently still confirmed – but this is subject to change.

What will the social distancing rules be?

Disneyland and Disney World resorts will have limited capacity, and strict social distancing will be in place on site.

In Shanghai, only 30% of full capacity is allowed, and all guests must wear masks. The park is also only admitting people with a green QR code that uses mobile phone data to confirm they haven’t been near a suspected case.

In performance venues every other row is left empty, while families are encouraged to stand three metres apart in queues for concession stands and rides.

Each Disney resort will have its own rules depending on local restrictions, but all will be subject to restricted capacity and availability, and certain attractions may remain closed.

What happens if you have a Disney holiday booked?

Disneyland and Disney resorts are offering guests a lot of flexibility in light of the ongoing coronavirus uncertainty.

If your visit is cancelled due to the park being closed, you will be offered either a refund or a voucher so you can rebook.

If you had a holiday booked for Disneyland Paris on or before 14 July, you can either accept a full refund, or a voucher to the value of your booking.

This can be used on another holiday within 18 months.

If your trip is booked for after 14 July, for now you should assume that it’s going ahead. However, you can cancel or modify your booking without charge.

If you have park tickets that you have not used, and expire while Disneyland Paris is closed, their expiry date will automatically be extended to 31 March 2021.
