Disney theme parks around the world have mostly remained opened after the initial closure in 2020. However, one Disney Park in China continues to open and close. This time, the closure takes place just four days after reopening.
Shanghai Disneyland Park
Shanghai Disneyland Park closed to guests on October 31, 2022 and reopened on November 25, 2022. They are now announcing that beginning November 29, 2022, they will once again close the parks. That is just four days after reopening!
The closure is a result of the pandemic in Shanghai as the country of China has a strict policy with very severe restrictions. During Shanghai’s lockdown in the spring of 2020, the park was closed for 101 days. It reopened in June which ultimately led to multiple closures and reopenings even two years later.
