Disneyland Paris have just announced on their Facebook Page that there will be a phased reopening of the Resort as of July 15, 2020. The phased reopening will start with the Disneyland Park, Walt Disney Studios Park, Disney's Newport Bay Club Hotel and Disney Village.
As has been the norm for every theme park that has reopened so far, enhanced health and safety measures will be implemented for Cast Members and guests which adhere to government guidelines. These are being put into place to ensure the parks are doing all they can to protect the safety of employees and guests at a time when COVID-19 is still present.
Disneyland Paris has stated that theme park capacity will be "significantly limited to comply with governmental requirements". The attendance levels will be managed through a new online system which has been said to be available to access in early July and will be subject to availability.
