What’s on offer
The original theme parks and, according to some, the best, Disney resorts remain a magical experience for the whole family. From dizzying rides to fireworks, and of course the chance to meet classic characters, a trip to a Disney park makes memories that last a lifetime.

Only locals and returning citizens can access Disney Parks in Tokyo and Hong Kong, while the resort town of Shanghai is only accessible to locals or those who meet China’s strict entry requirements, including two negative test results taken within 48 hours of departure.
What are the restrictions?
Disney Parks in the United States are slowly relaxing their Covid-19 protocols.
Each park has a reduced capacity. Customers who visit most parks should do a temperature check at the entrance and observe social distancing at all times.
What is the Covid situation?
The exact number of cases related to Disney parks is unclear.
What can visitors expect?
Similar to other Disney parks around the world, Disneyland in California and Disney World in Florida have reopened with some restrictions.
Parades and fireworks have been suspended indefinitely in an effort to keep guests safely separated. FASTPASS and Disney MaxPass services are suspended and not available for purchase or use.
Capacity has also been reduced, with numbers still limited in restaurants and in queues to avoid overcrowding.
Despite this, customers can still dine at their favorite restaurants and enjoy the rides, though character encounters have been replaced with socially distant character processions.
