Disneyland Paris has shared some information regarding what their parks will look like and what guests can expect to see. Here is some safety information from their website:
Enhanced health and safety measures at Disneyland Paris
When it begins its initial phased reopening on July 15, Disneyland Paris will once again invite guests to enjoy the unforgettable and magical moments that it is known for. In line with guidance from French government and local health authorities, Disneyland Paris parks, Disney’s Newport Bay Club hotel, and Disney Village will open with enhanced health and safety measures.
As the health and safety of its guests and Cast Members is our top priority, Disneyland Paris’ phased reopening will take a deliberate approach with limited attendance, physical distancing and enhanced cleaning measures aligned with guidance from French government and health authorities, and will require the wearing of face covering for guests ages eleven and older, Cast Members and contractors.
The resort will continually adjust operations and health and safety measures as the situation evolves and in accordance with guidance from French authorities.
Limited attendance at Disneyland Paris
The phased reopening will incorporate a deliberate approach to safety, with enhanced health and safety measures implemented for both Cast Members and guests. This will include limits on attendance and require advanced ticketing and reservations to accommodate controlled guest density that supports government guidance on physical distancing.
Register your chosen date
As Disneyland Paris welcomes guests back to the magic with a limited number of tickets available each day during the initial reopening, a new online reservation system will be available in early July. To ensure admission, guests in possession of or buying non-dated tickets, and Annual Pass holders, will need to register on this new online reservation system to obtain a reservation for park entry prior to their arrival. Guests who already have a dated ticket, do not need to register and reserve a date. Likewise, guests with packages that include park admittance will receive admission for the duration of their stay and do not need to use the new online reservation system.
Buy your tickets in advance
Ticket and package are now on sale on the resort’s website, Disneyland Paris call center and official travel partner channels, with a limited number of tickets available each day during the initial reopening phase. Ticket sales will not be available on site.
To provide guests with maximum flexibility, new booking conditions are now available to include cancellations and modifications without fees (excluding transport), on stays in the Disney Hotels anytime up to seven days before the arrival date.
Physical distancing measures to protect the Magic
Many steps are being taking to ensure guests have a safe and fun return to the magic. Below you find what Disneyland Paris will do for attractions, characters, hotels and resorts, and shows and animation.
In Attractions, the configuration of each ride will including boarding will be adapted for physical distancing between groups or families. Single Rider and FASTPASS services will be unavailable.
Our Disney Characters
Kids’ playgrounds, traditional Character meet and greets, and makeover experiences will remain temporarily unavailable. During the initial reopening phase, many Disney, Pixar, Star Wars Characters or Marvel Super Heroes will appear in the Parks and offer guests memorable photo opportunities. From unexpected appearances to new Selfie Spots, there’s never been a better time so see beloved Characters. Close interactions, including hugs, will be temporarily suspended.
In our Hotels & Resorts
Every guest staying at a Disney Hotel will benefit from Extra Magic Time and can therefore enjoy access to park areas before official opening times.
In Disney Hotels & Resorts, elevators will be used one family at a time and sneeze guards will be installed at front desks. Accelerated check-in procedures will be set and room service will be adapted with physical distancing measures.
Shows and animations
Some experiences, shows or events will not be available or may be modified upon reopening depending on the evolution of the safety and sanitary measures and recommendations from public authorities. This includes offerings such as Disney Stars on Parade and Disney Illuminations night time spectacular which will return at a later date.
The Lion King: Rhythms of the Pride Lands top-rated show will reopen during summer 2020, and theaters will adopt a new seating configuration to promote physical distancing. Guests can check the availability of attractions and entertainment through the resort’s official website and app.
