Disneyland Paris plans phased reopening from July 15

PARIS (AFP) – Disneyland Paris said yesterday that it would begin a “phased reopening” of the theme park on July 15, with visitor numbers limited via a new online reservation system to ensure social distancing.

Visitors aged 11 and older will have to wear face masks, and many shows and events will remain suspended because of the coronavirus pandemic, the resort said. A first hotel at the site, which usually has some 15 million visitors per year, will open July 15, followed by staggered openings of others through the summer.

The phased reopening will see “enhanced health and safety measures implemented for both cast members and guests,” the company said in a statement.
