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.

I use to live in Tokyo and been to TDR basically every month and was still going even when I moved back to the states. But I haven't been there in over a decade now. Last year was going to be my first visit back in a long time. I was back in Hong Kong back in 2018 and was planning to go back once the castle opened. No strict plans just whenever I could swing going back and could go this year. I can technically do both in one trip just as long it's just a few days between both, but I think just getting into one country is hard enough lol.

I hope things improve. I’ve been to Tokyo and Hong Kong and both are great places to visit as well as Disney, I’m looking to returning hopefully next year if i can

That's what I was referring to when I said open up. I'm really hoping with the vaccines that things could change by summer. I'm hoping to go to either Hong Kong or Tokyo frankly since I was suppose to go the latter last year.

Hong Kong has very strict entry restrictions at the moment. Only residents can enter and then they have to isolate for three weeks. https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/hong-kong/entry-requirements At the moment Hong Kong Disneyland is very much a locals park but I look forward to returning at some point in the future

I am really thinking of going back to HKDL this year IF things opens up again. But with the yo-yo effect happening everywhere, chances are most likely slim.

Wasn’t there a celebration there recently? Oh wait!

On a similar note, Ocean Park will be closed as well.

Waiting for this spin from TDA (Team Disney Anaheim)

Their actions are when you have proper restrictions. It’s a tantamount game of whack a mole. You hit it once, but one the time elapses, it shows its head again.

When will Hong Kong ever get a break! Hopefully the situation gets better and the park can reopen and start to prosper soon.
