Mickey ears at the ready…
Our wishes upon a dream have finally been answered! The moment we’ve all been waiting for (well, after the schools reopening announcement and social distancing rules being relaxed, of course) is finally here! Hong Kong Disneyland is finally opening its magical doors – much to the delight of children and parents alike. Read on to find out how and when you can get your hands on a ticket…
Editor’s Note: The situation in Hong Kong regarding closures and restrictions on opening hours due to the coronavirus is constantly evolving. Many businesses are taking extra precautions, but please make sure you follow the latest government advice and stay home if you have recently travelled overseas, have interacted with anyone who has been away, or display any symptoms.
Sparking a collective cheer in the Sassy Mama office, it was announced that the “most magical place on earth” will officially reopen to the public this Friday, 25 September 2020, after several months of closure. The Disney Cast are doing everything they can as well to make sure that the latest guidance from the government and health authorities are being followed, including:
- Capacity control
- Health screenings
- Temperature checks
- Mandatory face masks
- Social distancing measures (when queueing, in restaurants – including seating arrangements – attraction vehicles and other facilities)
- Increased cleaning and sanitisation throughout the park
How And When Can I get Hong Kong Disneyland Tickets?
Are you a Magic Access member? Lucky you, if so! You can start reserving your visit today (yay!). For everyone else, there’s not long to wait as you can also book from 12pm tomorrow (Wednesday, 23 September 2020). Just note that you’ll be asked to make a health declaration as part of their reservation process.
You can use the online reservation system, as all guests will be required to reserve a visit date (with valid tickets or membership cards) prior to arrival. The park will be open for five days a week for now, and closed on Tuesdays and Thursdays until further notice (except public holidays and special days designated by the resort).
So what about meeting the main mouse himself? Don’t worry, you’ll still get to meet your favourite characters at various spots dotted around the park (while social distancing, of course), and live performances will still take place although they’ll be restricted to outdoor venues during the initial reopening stage until further notice.
And just when you’re thinking it couldn’t get any better, of course it can! This is Disney after all! If you really can’t wait to see the revamped castle (the Castle of Magical Dreams is looking likely to kick off the resort’s 15th anniversary in late 2020), get your hands on a special hotel and ticket package where you can get up-close-and-personal to see the final stages of the Disney Castle transformation while enjoying a staycation at the resort. We’ll leave the final words with the Genie from Aladdin… “Today’s special moments are tomorrow’s memories.”
