Meanwhile, tickets for the first days of the Walt Disney Co.’s Shanghai Disneyland re-opening sold out almost instantly on Friday as the theme park gets ready to end a three-month shutdown in response to the novel coronavirus pandemic, this week.
The Shanghai Disney Resort is scheduled to have its grand reopening today. The Chinese government has asked Disney to cap attendance at 30 percent of capacity, or approximately 24,000 people, to help staff and customers adjust to new health and safety measures like social distancing, required mask wearing, more frequent cleaning and temperature checks.
