Disneyland Paris will begin a ‘gradual’ re-opening on July 15, the resort announced today. 

The theme park has been closed since March because of the coronavirus pandemic but will re-open next month with limits on visitor numbers and compulsory mask-wearing for adults. 

No tickets will be sold on site, meaning that tourists will have to choose a date and register in advance.

Social distancing means that children will be banned from hugging their favourite Disney characters, although the entertainers will still be at the park.

More than 2,000 sanitising and hand washing stations will be available throughout the resort, Disneyland said in its announcement today. 

These will be located at the entrance and exit to each ride as well as at restaurants and theatres. 

Guests aged 11 or over will have to wear face coverings ‘at all times except when eating’, with the same rule applying to staff.  

The Newport Bay Club hotel will also on July 15, but other hotels will stay closed until later in the summer. 

‘All of us at Disneyland Paris are excited to be on the path to reopening over the next few weeks,’ said the resort’s president Natacha Rafalski, President of Disneyland Paris. 

‘Making magic means even more, as we reflect on the resilience of our Cast Members and community, the enthusiasm of our guests and fans, and the positive momentum of many reopenings in the tourism industry across Europe. 

‘We are looking forward to the return of our Cast Members and reopening our gates for guests to once again enjoy.’
