Shanghai Disney Resort has revealed temporary changes to its ticketing policy with ticket-holders told to reschedule their visit to any date in the next six months.

It is thought the changes are connected to the outbreak of the deadly coronavirus in the region.

Customers will be eligible for a refund if they are unable to find a date that works in the six-month period.

The theme park’s website states: “We understand that in recent days some guests may wish to change their travel plans.

“Shanghai Disney Resort is operating normally and we welcome your visit, but we do understand if you wish to change your plans, and so we are revising our policies for a temporary period.”

Visitors who have booked hotels at the resort can reschedule to any date in the next six months, depending on availability, and are eligible for a refund if they are unable to make it.

In addition, ticket-buyers of the Chinese version of Beauty and the Beast musical can reschedule their tickets to any date before February 23 depending on performances, or a refund.

Last month, Shanghai Disney Resort unveiled its plans to introduce a new pricing structure in June 2020. The changes include the addition of another tier of pricing, with the base tier price for regular periods remaining unchanged at 399 yuan ($56.75/£43.11/€51.29), as well as the price for the majority of spring days and selected weekends set at 499 yuan.
