Posted: Monday June 22, 2020 9:12am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The Walt Disney Company has today announced that Disneyland Paris will reopen from the COVID-19 shutdown on July 15 2020.

Beginning July 15, Disneyland Paris will begin a phased reopening with visitors able to return to Disneyland Park, Walt Disney Studios Park, Disney’s Newport Bay Club hotel, and Disney Village.

As we have seen at Disney's other resorts, new health and safety measure will be in place, including advanced ticketing and reservations to accommodate controlled guest density that aligns with government guidance on physical distancing.

Dated tickets and reservations for pre-purchased tickets and annual passes are now live.

I hope they'll give a large window of a few months to reserve a parkday for annual pass holders. Many will need to fix transportation and hotels for a trip to DLP. If they only give a few weeks it might be too difficult to arrange a trip. Fingers crossed!

Disneyland Paris will be reopening both parks on July 15th along with Newport Bay and Disney Village. Cheyenne will reopen July 20th, Santa Fe August 3rd and Disneyland Hotel September 7th. No opening dates for the other hotels yet. Guests aged 11 up will be required to wear a face covering. No Stars on Parade or Illuminations (as expected) however Jungle Book Jive and Rhythm of the Pride Lands will return later this summer. In the article it states that advanced ticketing and reservations will be required - the system will go online early July.

The Disney Village movie theater will also open on June 22, along with Villages Nature.

From what I have seen online discussions should conclude tomorrow regarding reopening. Assuming they don't want to announce reopening going into the weekend this may pave the way for an announcement next week.

They are taking reservations from July 15. That does not mean they are reopening on that day, that's just when you can book a room now.

For a start, this could force them to actually open all their restaurants.

I can't see how disneyland paris will cope with not being able to have restaurants open. I feel that compared to WDW, the number of dining opportunities and variety doesn't lend itself to social distancing at all. There also isn't much option off site either compared to WDW for people to go to get something to eat. DLP's restaurants are heavily based on a model of a small number of large dining and buffet styles, rather than larger number of smaller venues. In my opinion this is something that could do with changing anyway as the dining in DLP is much to be desired as it is. It is woeful compared to WDW, and this in a country that prides itself on its food.

Restaurants in the area still can’t fully open, I’d presume we’d see that return to normal before the parks get close to open

Still no date in the diary to reopen yet? Quite surprised, theme parks are reopening in the UK in 3-4 weeks.

Villages Nature opens June 22.

I'm assuming they're keeping a close eye on WDW's reopening in July as their standard for reopening. Although, I predict DLP will reopen late July or even early August. I don't think the current I.T. systems Paris has will be able to handle the new reservations system Disney specifically developed for this situation.

It was announced yesterday by the French Prime Minister that theme parks in the Paris region can reopen from June 22nd. Disneyland Paris has not announced a reopening date however.
