For the first time in forever...
Both Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo Disney Sea have been closed since February 29, meaning a closure of around four months in total. But for the first time in what seems like forever, the park will be reopening on July 1!
OLC Group is taking the health and safety of visitors very seriously, and will be implementing a number of limitations to avoid further spread of the virus. These countermeasures will include things such as limiting the number of people who enter the park, limiting the number of people at each facility and attraction within the park, regular cleaning, and reminder announcements to adhere to social distancing practices.
The following is a translation of an excerpt from OLC Group’s official announcement.
Official statement on Covid-19 countermeasures
As we reopen both parks, we will implement measures in accordance with the "Guidelines for preventing the spread of coronavirus infections at amusement parks and theme parks" which was created based on the government's "Basic countermeasures against novel coronavirus infections". As such, we will implement the following three measures in the interest of basic health and safety:
・Remain mindful of the health management of everyone who has involvement with the park, including guests and cast/staff members
・Strengthen cleaning and disinfection measures to provide hygienic facilities and equipment
・Maintain social distancing and a well-ventilated environment
Requests and guidelines for visitors
Visitors (guests) are requested to kindly have their temperature taken upon entering the park, as well as wearing a mask, adhering to social distancing, washing hands regularly, and using hand sanitizer and disinfectant. In addition, cashless payment such as credit card or electronic payment is recommended. If you feel unwell after entering the park, depending on your symptoms, please understand that you may be asked to leave.
