Shanghai Disneyland to increase park capacity from 30 to 50%

Shanghai Disneyland Resort

Shanghai Disneyland is the first Disney theme park to reopen after a temporary closure due to the global pandemic. Now the Disney theme park plans to increase visitor capacity.

Going forward, daily capacity at Shanghai Disneyland will increase from 30 percent to 50 percent. The update on capacity size was made official by the Shanghai Disney Resort. The change comes amid new guidance from China’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism.

“As a result of this policy change, and as overall market conditions continue to rebound, Shanghai Disney Resort is increasing the daily capacity of the resort’s theme park,” the notice on the Shanghai Disney Resort website read.

In addition to upping park capacity, the resort will relax some restrictions on its reservation system to give visitors “more flexibility” when planning their visits. With this update, annual passholders and day visitors will be allowed to visit on eligible days based on the condition of their pass or ticket. All visitors, however, must make a reservation in advance. The new capacity size goes into effect on August 24, 2020.

Shanghai Disneyland reopened to the public on May 11, 2020 with new health and safety measures in place. Seeing restrictions ease up gives us hope that we are one day closer to the end of this pandemic.
