Hong Kong Disneyland to close again due to rising COVID-19 cases

Hong Kong Disneyland has announced that it will close again on December 2 2020 due to rising cases of COVID-19 in the region.

The region reported 115 new COVID-19 cases Sunday, which has been enough for the local government to take action. In contrast, Florida reported over 7000 new cases on the same day. No reopening date is yet available.

The resort originally reopened to guests on June 18, and was the second Disney resort reopening following Shanghai. The park then closed again in mid-July as part of an effort to contain rising COVID-19 cases.

LegCo in the most recent update seemed to be hinting they would like Disney to do something of that nature when they rip down the quarantine centre very soon Up until arendelle it just really wasn’t worth it because the resort wasn’t worth staying a whole day for for an average person

I imagine if they thought it would work / make enough they would. Even as a phased development.

Genuine question is why Hongkong Disneyland doesn't have a shopping district at this point, Literally every castle park has one.

Sorry to bump a old thread like this, but Google Maps updated their satellite image of The Hong Kong Resort... I guess the upside is when it's no longer a super depressing and scary quarantine facility the resort will have a massive increase in hotel rooms...,

So the 2-week closure is extended for another two weeks (till Feb 3) with plans to bring forward the vaccine mandate to Feb 4.

Planed out to Hong Kong from San Fran just to see that park. 3 years later did again but from Thailand. And yet a 3rd time out of East Coast USA. When will I learn that it just ain't worth it. The park itself has some standout pathetic features and these closures seem par for the course considering the heavy hand and long arm of Beijing has taken over.

Yes it is. And sadly the conditions there are godawful.

Does anyone know if the former second gate site is still being used as a covid quarantine facility?

Before the forced closure, the government also announced a vaccine mandate for scheduled premises including theme parks beginning from Feb 24. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2022-01-04/hong-kong-to-widen-vaccine-mandate-feb-24-says-lam Right now there are only a few Omicron cases in HK and though I don’t agree with the ‘zero-covid’ strategy, I understand this preventive decision as the healthcare system is already way overloaded even before covid.

Had they not just invested a billion dollars into upgrades and an expansion I’m not sure it would have survived. With all the money they just invested into it it must be safe for now though.

I’m really worried about the future of this park.

Lets hope the cast and everyone else stays safe

We can only hope that, as with previous waves, the wave only lasts two months as it burns through the population.

Hong Kong Disneyland closing for at least two weeks to combat Omnicron surge. Let's be real, though: it's going to be months, if not a whole year, especially if Shanghai, Tokyo and Paris all close as well. The variant is too transmissible for any measure save a total lockdown to work.
