Shanghai Disneyland announced this week that it will reopen its main theme park, three months after it closed its doors due to the coronavirus outbreak.
But the park’s reopening is accompanied by a new set of strict measures, that include limited attendance, social distancing measures, and an “increased frequency of sanitization and disinfection,” according to a press release.
The park announced earlier this week it would reopen on May 11, and tickets for the opening day went on sale Friday at 8 a.m. local time before quickly selling out.
As one of the first theme parks to reopen around the world, Disneyland Shanghai will likely serve as an example for Disney’s and others’ parks as they plan reopenings.
