Bonjour! C’est magnifique! Disneyland Paris has officially reopened as of July 15th! Disneyland Paris began their phased reopening including Disneyland Park, Walt Disney Studios Park, Disney Village, and Disney’s Newport Bay Club Hotel. Annual Passholders were allowed early access on July 13th and 14th. Disneyland Paris has been closed for the past 4 months and the reopening has sparked so much happiness and excitement for fans.
The reopening of Disneyland Paris included a reopening ceremony. The day began with an announcement from Disneyland Paris President, Natacha Rafalski welcoming back all the guests to enjoy the magic in the parks. She said, “Welcome back to the place where magic gets real.”
Natacha Rafalski also made a statement on the Disneyland Paris website:
“At Disneyland Paris, we have been celebrating our Disney Parks family from around the world. From our colleagues at Shanghai Disney Resort and Hong Kong Disneyland who have reopened their gates, to Walt Disney World and Disneyland who announced their plans to reopen next month – we are inspired by their resilience and proud of what they’ve accomplished to once again welcome guests back to experience the magic of our resorts.
Now, as our community begins to recover, I’m thrilled to share that our iconic Sleeping Beauty Castle will once again welcome guests to its towering spires and sprawling vistas when the resort begins its phased reopening on July 15. Since its temporary closure in March of this year, guests of all ages have been eagerly awaiting the reopening of our premiere European destination.
As we approach this day, we continue to prioritize the health and safety of our cast members and guests. In line with French government and health authorities’ recommendations, the phased reopening of Disneyland Paris will present a deliberate approach with enhanced health and safety measures tailored to our specific environment. This will include limits on attendance and require advanced ticketing and reservations to accommodate controlled guest density that aligns with government guidance on physical distancing.
We’ve been looking forward to the day we are all able to return to Disneyland Paris, and upon reopening, guests will be able to experience the guest service we are known for, our iconic attractions and entertainment, heart-warming new character moments, and even a few surprises along the way. As we are taking a phased approach, some experiences will change and others will return at a later date, but the magic that our cast is world renowned for will remain. We know it will take all of us working together, both cast members and guests, in this shared responsibility to promote a healthy and safe environment.
