BURBANK, Calif., May 5, 2020 – As residents in Shanghai and its neighboring provinces gradually return to more normal life - including at workplaces, schools, shops, restaurants, and entertainment destinations - Shanghai Disney Resort announced today that Shanghai Disneyland will re-open to the public on May 11, 2020.

During this initial re-opening phase, Shanghai Disney Resort instituted enhanced measures and procedures that comply with government directives and focus on the needs of guests and cast members.

Guests are required to purchase admission tickets valid on a selected date only and Annual Pass holders must make a reservation prior to arrival.Controlled guest density:
Capacity will be recommended and managed in queues, restaurants, ride vehicles and other facilities. Queues will be structured and ride vehicles will be loaded to promote social distancing.Implementing required government health and prevention procedures:

Hand sanitizers will be available at queue entries and attraction exits. High-touch locations, such as ride vehicles, handlebars, queue railings and turnstiles will have increased sanitization.Training for cast members:
