Tokyo Disneyland has continued to adjust park operations in accordance to health and safety measures.
Tokyo Disney Resort has announced additional changes to park operating procedures in the interest of health and safety.
In response to ongoing health concerns, Tokyo Disney Resort has implemented a number of changes. The Resort has temporarily closed select restaurants, briefly paused ticket sales, and reduced park hours through January.
Due to a surge in COVID-19 cases, there have recently been a LOT of things canceled, postponed, or temporarily closed at Tokyo Disney Resort.
After reopening in July, the park slowly brought back offerings like fireworks and even opened some new attractions, but now the resort has had to backtrack, canceling events, temporarily suspending fireworks, and closing several restaurants for the time being. They also reduced park hours, placed a ban on non-resident visitors, and halted ticket sales. Now, ticket sales are being offered once again.
But in recent weeks, Japan has had a major surge in COVID-19 cases, leading to a travel ban on non-resident foreign travelers coming into the country.
Recently Tokyo Disneyland opened a whole bunch of new rides, shops, and restaurants as part of the expansion of its Fantasyland, including The Happy Ride with Baymax, a Beauty and the Beast attraction with some seriously incredible animatronics and special effects, and more!
But, the resort has also seen some other changes recently due to an increase in COVID-19 cases in Japan. Japan recently set a travel ban on non-resident foreign travelers coming into the country, Tokyo Disney Resort reduced its hours, nightly fireworks at the resort were suspended, and park ticket sales have been temporarily suspended. Now, another change is coming to the resort as several restaurants are set to temporarily close.
Last year, the global health crisis shut down all Disney Parks, including Tokyo Disney Resort, which includes two theme parks: Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea.
Due to the global health crisis, Tokyo Disney Resort shut down earlier this year, along with all of Disney’s other parks locations.
The resort’s theme parks reopened in July and eventually saw the return of nighttime fireworks and parades, as well as character meet and greets in the fall. Now, they’re taking a step back and reducing hours in their theme parks.
As the end of 2020 is just around the corner, we’ve seen a year of fluctuation with new health and safety measures being put in place and even stay-at-home orders being issued.
Since the global health crisis is continually changing, the various ways countries are operating have also seen modifications recently. And, now Japan is placing another restriction in place into the New Year to protect its residents.
Disney is known for creating some state-of-the-art, seriously impressive animatronics for its attractions over the last few years. The Shaman of Song that serenades riders in Na’vi River Journey and Hondo Ohnaka that greets future pilots, engineers, and gunners on Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run are both shockingly realistic.
However, not all animatronics are created equal. Sometimes, they’re just downright creepy. Plus, they can even have bad days, just like the rest of us. The Yeti of the Forbidden Mountain on Expedition Everest has been riding the struggle bus for years, and even Elsa had a rough patch a few months ago. Well, today, we’re talking about some of the strangest and scariest animatronics created by Disney, and even taking a look at some of their mishaps!
