Disneyland Paris reopens after four-month closure due to COVID-19

Disneyland Paris reopened on July 15 after a four-month closure due to COVID-19, but with face masks and social distancing required.

A steady stream of visitors trickled in during the morning, with one group wearing Mickey Mouse ears and dancing with glee as they entered Europe's most visited theme park.

Reinforced hygiene measures have been put in place. With a daily limited capacity, visitors were told to keep one meter away from others, while hundreds of sanitizing and hand-washing stations are now scattered around the park.

Advance booking is required for entry so there is no ticket sold at the entrance. Rides on which it is difficult to maintain social distancing are off limits, and playgrounds and make-up workshops are also closed for now.

Walt Disney also reopened another of its theme park in Florida, U.S., earlier this month despite a spike in COVID-19 cases.

Meanwhile, Hong Kong Disneyland closed once again from Wednesday due to rising COVID-19 cases in the city.
