Hong Kong Disneyland Resort will reopen on Thursday after being closed for almost five months because of the coronavirus.
The theme park will operate at a reduced capacity and with a new ticket reservation system for all guests. Hotels at the resort are also to reopen gradually.
Ocean Park, the city’s other theme park, reopened at the weekend, and the government said the move to open both was a key step in rebooting an economy reeling from the pandemic.
In a press release, Disneyland said during the initial reopening phase, all guests, including park ticket holders and members, will be required to book a trip through its website seven or eight days before a visit.

Reservations will not be required for children below the age of three, and will be admitted free of charge as usual.
Social-distancing measures will be implemented in queues, restaurants, on rides, and at other facilities throughout the park, while character experiences requiring close interaction and close-up photos are to be temporarily suspended.
Guests will have to fill out a health declaration and undergo temperature screening upon arrival. Masks must all be worn, except when eating and drink, the park has announced.
