Shanghai Disneyland reopens after COVID shutdown

STORY: Visitors streamed through the gates at the opening time, eager to get on the rides and soak up the atmosphere. Gao, a 36-year-old visitor who only provided her surname, commended the park's efforts in maintaining hygiene. "Hand sanitisers are everywhere. While I was waiting in line outside, some staff kept wiping down the railings and disinfecting them," she said.

The resort said in a statement on Tuesday (June 28) that capacity levels would be controlled and some experiences, such as a Marvel Universe showroom, will remain shut. All guests will also need to show proof of a negative COVID test taken within the last 72 hours to enter, it added.

The theme park had been shut since March 21, closing its doors amid an uptick of cases in Shanghai. The city lifted its lockdown on June 1.
