Disneyland in Paris has finally opened. Disneyland Paris is probably one of the most frequented attractions in the world and the COVID-19 pandemic was really tough on all these places. Now, Disneyland has opened its gates for visitors after more than four months. The theme-park was shuttered in March when the Coronavirus outbreak gripped the city and world.
The two theme parks, Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park along with Disney Village, and Disney’s Newport Bay Club Hotel were reopened for tourists on July 15, 2020. Things were opened with the latest Coronavirus health and safety measures, which include face masks and social distancing.
On the day of reopening, the theme park saw a steady stream of visitors pouring in from across the city in the morning hours. As reported by the local media, a group was pictured by the Mickey Mouse ears. People were seen dancing with happiness as they entered their famous Disneyworld.

Among the new regulations, Disneyland Paris has limited visitors capacity to ensure physical distancing. Masks and advance booking are mandatory, so guests need to register online to visit the parks on a particular date. People have to keep a metre away from fellow visitors. Also, hundreds of hand-washing stations and sanitizers have been placed all around the park.
According to the Disneyland Paris website, character meet and greets will change to accommodate social distancing while playgrounds, makeover experiences, remain shut for now. Ticket counters remained closed along with playgrounds and make-up workshops. On Saturday, Walt Disney World reopened its famous parks in Orlando, despite the fact that the place has seen a jump in new cases.
Though hugging Mickey or your favourite character won’t be possible now, it’s still good to be back inside the park. Happy images of people enjoying inside the park on social media, maintaining social distance, are spreading positivity and making people hopeful of good days.
