Hong Kong Disneyland is temporarily closed from January 26, 2020, due to ongoing measures to limit the spread of the coronavirus.
The news was announced on signage outside the Resort, and on the Park’s Facebook page. The full statement reads;
As a precautionary measure in line with prevention efforts taking place across Hong Kong, we are temporarily closing Hong Kong Disneyland park out of consideration for the health and safety of our guests and cast members. The Hong Kong Disneyland Resort hotels will remain open. We are in close contact with health authorities and the government about the situation and will announce a reopening date once they determine it is advisable. In the interim, we will be providing refunds to guests who have booked tickets to the park or rooms at our resort hotels.
The Standard Day Ticket is valid for six months from the purchase date. If needed, Hong Kong Disneyland Resort will assist in the refund for guests who have purchased tickets for admission to Hong Kong Disneyland park or have booked a resort hotel. For additional details, call hotline 1-830-830.
Hong Kong’s closure follows Shanghai Disneyland, which announced on January 25, 2020, that it would be closed until further notice.
Hong Kong has five confirmed cases of the coronavirus, with another 122 people with potential symptoms being treated. To limit the spread of the virus, Hong Kong’s government has declared a virus emergency, limited travel to some areas of China, and extended the school vacation until February 17, 2020.
