Even though nearly two dozen states have recently seen a rise in coronavirus cases in the United States as the country attempts to reopen, countries overseas are having more luck containing the spread of the pandemic. Over the past week, Hong Kong has seen either one or zero cases daily, which is why Hong Kong Disneyland is preparing to reopen later this month on June 18.
“At Hong Kong Disneyland Resort, it is my privilege to work with an incredible team of cast members to help share the magic with our guests. Over the past few months, we’ve been moved by your understanding and patience as we navigated an unprecedented closure. During this time, we took measured steps to maintain guest offerings at our hotels, with adjusted levels of service, and in May we reopened additional dining experiences. Today, as our surrounding community takes steps towards recovery, I’m thrilled to announce that Hong Kong Disneyland will also reopen to the public on June 18.”
This announcement comes after Hong Kong reopened Ocean Park on June 13. Both of the parks had been closed for 130 days following the breakout of the coronavirus pandemic. Ocean Park was on the verge of bankruptcy and has been desperate to reopen for some time now. Meanwhile, Hong Kong Disneyland has lost around $145 million in operating costs after being closed for so long, but the park is still standing strong.
