A phased reopening of Disneyland Paris starts today (Wednesday).

Both theme parks, Disney’s Newport Bay Club hotel and Disney Village will be available initially.

Controlled capacity will be implemented together with enhanced health and safety protocols.

Limited attendance will be managed through a new online reservation system.

Physical distancing will be implemented throughout the resort, including queues and attractions, while visitors aged 11 and older are required to wear an “appropriate” face mask.

“In order to maintain physical distancing, a limited number of tickets are available each day during the initial reopening,” the resort said.

“Our attractions, restaurants, boutiques and hotels have all been adapted to allow physical distancing thanks to ground markings and signage and other rules specific to the context.”

However, experiences that raw large crowds such as parades and night-time illuminations are temporarily suspended and will return “at a later date”.

Disney’s Hotel Cheyenne is due to reopen on July 20, Disney’s Hotel Santa Fe on August 3, and Disneyland Hotel on September 7.

Disney’s Sequoia Lodge Hotel and Disney’s Davy Crocket Ranch will remain closed over the summer.

Disneyland Paris president Natacha Rafalski said: “All of us at Disneyland Paris are excited to be on the path to reopening over the next few weeks,” said

“Making magic means even more, as we reflect on the resilience of our cast members and community, the enthusiasm of our guests and fans, and the positive momentum of many reopenings in the tourism industry across Europe.

“We are looking forward to the return of our cast members and reopening our gates for guests to once again enjoy.”
