Though we have no official timetable about when Disney Parks in the United States could reopen following the COVID-19 Pandemic, it is safe to say that when the parks reopen there will be some big operations changes. Right now Shanghai Disney Resort is continuing with its phased opening, and while the theme park still isn't operational, some of the changes we are seeing as the resort opens piece by piece could give us a glimpse into what we might see from a Walt Disney World or Disneyland reopening in the future. 

Here's what is currently open

Though the Shanghai Disneyland theme park remains closed, several parts of the larger resort have opened, including Shanghai Disneyland Hotel, Disneytown, Wishing Star Park and Lumiere’s Kitchen (which is a Character Dining location). In addition, the Disney Car and Coach Park and the Disneytown Parking Lot have also reopened. However, though there are some Disney experiences now open for guests, hours vary from day to day, and strict limits are being put in place for guests who are eligible to enter the resort.  

Face masks are required and social distancing will be enforced

According to an update to the Shanghai Disney Resort website, all guests must wear a mask during their entire visit to the resort (except when dining). In addition, the resort will be enforcing social distancing and will be reminding guests to maintain at least six feet apart from each other at all times while in stores, queues, and restaurants.
