Another international Disney destination reopened today with Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea welcoming Guests back today for the first time since closing on February 29th. The resort reopened with new health and safety guidelines including temperature screenings, mandatory face coverings, and more. Click here to learn more about Tokyo Disney Resort’s health and safety requirements.

Cast Members at the Disney Ambassador Hotel eagerly welcomed Guests back last night with a line of Cast waiving to Guests on their way to check in.

One of Duffy’s friends from Hawaii makes his debut with the July 1st reopening of Tokyo DisneySea. Collectors of Duffy and his friends were eager to get their hands on Olu Mel even before the park announced a reopening date. The day is finally here.

One of the most magical ways to arrive at the Tokyo Disney Resort is by rail.

Signage leading to the entrance clearly explains the revised entry process.

A social distance queue greets guests before going through security.

The entrance to Tokyo Disneyland includes clearly defined queue spaces where parties can maintain their distance while waiting to enter.

It’s a similar process outside of Tokyo DisneySea.

Like a scene out of Frozen, the gates are finally raising “For the first time in forever.”

Rather than a reopening ceremony on a stage, the park played an announcement over the speakers as the park prepared to open again. Toshio Kagami, CEO of Oriental Land Company, said the following during this speech: "We are finally reopening Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea today. All of the Cast Members are delighted to welcome you back to the Tokyo Disney Resort. With the health and safety of our Guests and Cast as our highest priority, we have newly added measures in place. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. Please enjoy the magical world of Disney theme parks, which are now open!"

Just as the parks reopened, Tokyo Disney Resort shared this video celebrating the special moment.

One of the first Guests back inside Tokyo Disneyland got a picture with a nearly empty World Bazaar behind her.

It quickly got a lot busier.

Guests at Tokyo DisneySea quickly moved to their first destination.

Cast Members were on hand to smile, wave, and help Guests understand where to go and how to social distance in queues.

Ever a source of joy and inspiration, Cinderella Castle greets Guests like an old friend returning home.

And another park icon delighted Guests returning to Tokyo DisneySea.

Who’s the leader of the club?

It really is a “Small world after all.”

Mickey Mouse and his friends are happy Guests have returned to the park.

Not to be outdone, Duffy and his friends are also happy to greet Guests from a safe distance.

Mickey and the gang made an appearance later at Tokyo DisneySea.

With reduced capacity, the notoriously long lines were extremely short in the morning.

The one exception to the rule is Soaring: Mystic Flight, the newest attraction with the most demand.

10 minutes for Toy Story Mania? That’s “Insania!”

Tokyo DisneySea is still running their iconic water shows with social distance markers for Guests to stand in.

A nearly empty Mermaid Lagoon.

This roller coaster enthusiast couldn’t wait to get back on Raging Spirits.

A look around Fantasyland.

An empty entrance to 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

With images like this, it’s worth pointing out that the park has staggered entry times and not all Guests have gotten in yet.

The parks are well prepared for long lines with social distance gaps.

New mobile order kiosks have been added to Pan Galactic Pizza Port.

The parks are also ready for long lines at their flavored popcorn carts.

Here’s what it’s like inside of a gift shop with modified checkout.

Hand sanitizer is available throughout the parks.

And here’s a look at what awaits Guests in the new Beauty and the Beast themed area, which will open later this year.

To everyone visiting the Tokyo Disney Resort, we hope you have a safe and happy day.
