Disneyland Paris will reopen on June 17 with restricted numbers and enhanced health and safety measures following Covid lockdown.

A limited number of tickets will be available each day using an online reservation system.

To ensure admission, guests – including annual pass holders – must register on the system and obtain a reservation for park entry prior to their arrival.

The reopening “will take a deliberate approach with enhanced health and safety measures that were successfully implemented last year”.

The company said: “Our measures continue to reflect current government guidelines, demonstrating our ability to improve the guest experience while providing a safe environment for all.

“As authorities recommend the wearing of an appropriate face covering in public spaces, Disneyland Paris asks all guests ages 6 and older to do so.

“This reopening will also implement limited attendance, required advanced ticketing and reservations to support physical distancing, per government guidance.

“As a result, some experiences, shows or events will not be available or may be modified, depending on evolving guidance from authorities.”

Disneyland Park, Walt Disney Studios Park, Disney’s Newport Bay Club Hotel and Disney Village will be available initially.

The long-awaited Disney’s Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel will then open on June 21, with bookings available from tomorrow  (May 18).

Other hotels will open progressively – Disney’s Newport Bay Club on June 17, Disney’s Hotel Cheyenne on July 1 and Disney’s Davy Crockett Ranch on July 13, “subject to the continued evolution of the situation”.

The reopening dates of Disney’s Sequoia Lodge Hotel and Disney’s Hotel Santa Fe will be announced at a later time.

Disneyland Hotel remains closed for refurbishment until further notice, according to the company.

 The French theme park’s president Natacha Rafalski said: “We have all been dreaming of this moment. The moment we can reunite and enjoy unforgettable moments with our family and friends.

“When Disneyland Paris reopens, our guests will be able to enjoy the outstanding experiences we are known for, from iconic attractions and new heart-warming character moments to unique interactions with our  cast members and even a few surprises along the way.”
