Disneyland Paris has confirmed it will reopen on June 17 after being closed several times since its initial shut down in March 2020.

The park was briefly reopened on July 15 last year, before another wave of COVID-19 lockdowns forced it to close its doors to punters again on October 30.

The announcement comes after the French government this week relaxed some restrictions due to an uptick in vaccinations and falling COVID-19 numbers.

“We are pleased to announce that Disneyland Paris will reopen on June 17 with Disneyland Park, Walt Disney Studios Park, Disney’s Newport Bay Club Hotel and Disney Village. Our reopening will follow enhanced health and safety measures,” the Euro Disney Group said on Twitter.

Visitors hoping to visit the attraction will be required to book advance tickets and reservations, with attendance to be limited and some areas of the park to remain shuttered.

Disneyland Paris will supply a limited number of tickets each day with fans only able to book using an online reservation system. In addition, guests – including annual pass holders – must register on the system and obtain a reservation for park entry prior to their arrival.

The group has also requested that all guests ages six and older wear face coverings in public spaces.

The reopening “will take a deliberate approach with enhanced health and safety measures that were successfully implemented last year”.

The company said: “Our measures continue to reflect current government guidelines, demonstrating our ability to improve the guest experience while providing a safe environment for all.

“This reopening will also implement limited attendance, required advanced ticketing and reservations to support physical distancing, per government guidance.

“As a result, some experiences, shows or events will not be available or may be modified, depending on evolving guidance from authorities.”

In January, Disneyland Paris pushed its reopening date back by another two months to April 2 after France tightened its COVID-19 restrictions.

The resort had originally said it would open its gates again on February 13, after closing for the second time in October and delaying its initial plan of a Christmas reopening.

During its period of closure, Disneyland Paris has been used as a vaccination site.

Disneyland in California opened its doors for the first time in over a year on April 30, while Hong Kong Disneyland reopened in February.
