Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea are once again open. Guests streamed into the parks wearing masks and practicing being socially distant on the morning of July 1st. This is the first time guests were in the parks since February 28th. They were closed due to the impacts of COVID-19. The parks reopened with safety protocols in place that included social distancing, face masks, cleaning protocols, and limited capacity. None of these seemed to dampen the spirits of those who were there for the reopening, however!
Tokyo Disney Resort began the day with a video released on social media of the time leading up to the reopening and welcoming guests back.

As guests came into the parks, Cast Members welcomed them while wearing face coverings. Some carried signs reminding guests of the safety protocols.
It was a joyous occasion for both Cast Members and guests alike as Disney magic was once again experienced at the Tokyo Disney Resort’s two parks.
