THEME parks are slowly beginning to reopen, with Thorpe Park and Alton Towers hoping to welcome guests from July.
The question on many park enthusiasts lips, however, is when will the Disney parks reopen.
While Shanghai Disneyland has opened, Disney World in Florida is hoping to open this summer.
Disneyland California is also opening by next month – yet little is known about Disneyland Paris.
Here is everything you need to know about Disneyland Paris, from when it will open to the new changes you can expect.
When will Disneyland Paris reopen?
Dates for the reopening of Disneyland Paris are yet to be revealed.
The website explains: “We look forward to welcoming you back to Disneyland Paris and will announce our official reopening date as soon as possible.
“Our reopening plans will reflect a cautious approach intended to prioritise the health and safety of our Guests and Cast Members while delivering our signature Disney guest experience.”
While other Disney parks in the US and Asia are either already open or have plans to open on a limited capacity next month, there is no news for Disneyland in France.
Some theme parks in Europe have also reopened – Europa-Park in Germany and Efteling in the Netherlands – but with France’s lockdown one of the strictest, it may be a while until Disneyland opens again.
The French government has said that some theme parks can open from June 22, but that Disneyland Paris will be closed until “at least through July 14”.
How much will tickets cost?
Last year tickets cost between £76 and £217 on the gate depending on how many parks were included in the ticket, while park, hotel and Eurostar deals started from £159pp.
Ticket prices currently include Mini tickets, which allow any off-peak travel, from £52.51 for adults, up to Super Magic tickets, which let you visit any day of the year for £79.21.
These can still be booked on the website as they can be used on future dates for when the park reopens.
Already have tickets booked prior to the park opening? Disneyland is allowing full refunds or vouchers for the cost if travelling before June 14.
Will hotels also be opening?
The new Disney’s Hotel New York – The Art of Marvel will no longer open on the planned date of June 14.
Anyone with stays booked up until October can get a full refund.
The rest of the hotels are expected to open along with the park opening, although this depends on safety regulations and capacity limitations.
What are the new rules being put into place?
New safety and social distancing guidelines are yet to be released.
However, other theme parks are introducing new measures such as temperature checks at the gates, contactless payment encouraged and additional hygiene stations throughout the park.
Some are enforcing the wearing of face masks while others are opening at a limited capacity, such as 30 per cent at first.
Rides and attractions are likely to be affected – enclosed rides may remain closed while rollercoaster could operate with empty rows between each family.
Legoland is also reopening from July 4, with whole rows left empty between guests to ensure social distancing.
The new £3.5bn theme park dubbed “UK Disney World” has moved a step closer to being built, after announcing a public consultation on their plans this summer.
The London Resort, which will be built on 535 acres of land on a former cement works in Swanscombe, Kent, is expected to open in 2024.
