Hong Kong Disneyland Resort will reopen to the public on June 18 as it begins its phased reopening from the COVID-19 shutdown.

The resort will follow a similar protocol to Shanghai and Walt Disney World, with enhanced health and safety including limiting attendance and social distancing.

Hong Kong Disneyland will be the second Disney theme park to reopen, with Walt Disney World set to follow on July 11 with the Magic Kingdom and Disney's Animal Kingdom.

If they are able to react so promptly they won't be in the red after 15 years of operation. The new social distancing measures were just announced by the government at 8pm hkt today and I don't expect an official announcement from the the local Disney management until next morning. Edit:

I found something from CNBC that seems to have an official statement of some sort... https://www.cnbc.com/2020/07/13/hong-kong-disneyland-to-close-july-15-as-coronavirus-cases-spike.html

Nothing they themselves posted. But HK is going back to a semi-lockdown with no gatherings for 4 or more people, which obviously affects HKDL. Reliable news sources have confirmed with the company. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-coronavirus-hongkong-disneylan/disney-to-shut-hong-kong-disneyland-again-as-coronavirus-cases-rise-idUSKCN24E21L

I don't see anything from Disney confirming this. Are there any better, more official sources than Twitter yet?

According to local news, HKDL will close from July 15 until further notice. The hotels that are open right now, namely the Disneyland Hotel and the Explorers Lodge, will remain open with adjusted services. Meanwhile Ocean Park will be temporarily closed from July 14-21 and could be extended if the situation continues to worsen.

I heard 6-18-2020 as the reopen date. Reported by other WDW information sites.
