Hong Kong Disneyland closed on January 26th in light of the global health situation. While Shanghai Disneyland reopened to guests on May 11th, and Walt Disney World Resort will begin a phased reopening on July 11th, the reopening status for Hong Kong Disneyland remains unknown to this point.
However, it seems an announcement regarding the reopening of Hong Kong Disneyland may be soon approaching.
According to an article by variety.com, it has been announced that Hong Kong Disneyland and another venue which is also government-owned, Ocean Park, will be reopening “shortly.” Hong Kong Disneyland Resort — as a reminder, per the Hong Kong Disneyland website — “is owned by a joint venture company, Hongkong International Theme Parks Limited, with shareholders, the Hong Kong Government and The Walt Disney Company.”
Citing Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development, Edward Yau, while Ocean Park will reopen starting Saturday, June 13th, a reopening date for Hong Kong Disneyland has not yet been decided. (And no update is currently available on the official Hong Kong Disneyland website, which — at press time — still states that “We are in close contact with health authorities and the government about the situation and will announce a reopening date once they determine it is advisable.”).
Yau is quoted in the article as saying: “We want to reboot the economy in the second half of this year through new initiatives in tourism, external trade and trade insurance services.” Trade fairs and conventions are also among the businesses cleared to begin reopening.
