Disneyland Parisofficially reopened Wednesday amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The park has been closed for four months because of the COVID-19 surge across the world. But it reopened Wednesday, expressing caution to guests as the park implemented new safety guidelines.

“All of us at Disneyland Paris are excited to be on the path to reopening over the next few weeks,” Natacha Rafalski, president of Disneyland Paris, told CNN.

Like other reopened Disney properties, Disneyland Paris added health measures such as required face coverings, temperature checks and reduced capacity.

Guests are required to buy tickets in advance so Disney can properly manage capacity.

The park will have new “selfie spots” where you can have “memorable photo opportunities,” Disney said, according to CNN.

Disneyland Paris’reopening comes as Hong Kong Disneyland decided to close its doors after reopening in June. The park decided to close due to a recent rise in coronavirus cases in Hong Kong, as I wrote about for Deseret.com.

A Disney spokesperson told the Deseret News: “As required by the government and health authorities in line with prevention efforts taking place across Hong Kong, Hong Kong Disneyland park will temporarily close from July 15. The Hong Kong Disneyland Resort hotels will remain open with adjusted levels of services. They have put in place enhanced health and safety measures that reflect the guidance of health and government authorities, such as social distancing measures and increased cleaning and sanitization.”
