Japan is beginning to lift restrictions throughout the country as it comes out of the coronavirus crisis. With this, some theme parks in Japan are beginning to reopen. Tokyo Disney Resort is not be one of them, however. On June 1st the Tokyo Disney Resort posted an update on their website reiterating that Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea will continue to remain closed indefinitely. Reopening will happen once specific conditions have been met with government and health officials and also within the Tokyo Disney Resort itself.
The following statement was added to the Tokyo Disney Resort website on June 1st:
Although the government’s state of emergency declaration regarding the new coronavirus (COVID-19) has been lifted, Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea will temporarily remain closed.
The reopening of the Parks will be determined when external and internal conditions have been readied, including the phased easing of closure requests from the government and local municipalities, as well as preparations for Park operations. The reopening date will be announced once it has been decided.
Additionally, the opening date for the Tokyo Disneyland major expansion area will be determined once the situation can be gauged after reopening both parks.
This announcement comes on the same day that Ikspiari, a shopping mall at the gateway of the Tokyo Disney Resort, reopens.
