As Shanghai Disneyland continues to open parts of their resort and shopping district in phases, they have recently expanded the use of the Shanghai QR Code, according to wording on their website.
Here’s the latest statement from Shanghai Disneyland on their operations, with emphasis added by us.
Shanghai Disneyland remains closed as we continue to closely monitor health and safety conditions and follow the direction of government regulators. However, as the first step of a phased reopening, Shanghai Disney Resort will partially resume operations on March 9, 2020 with a limited number of shopping, dining, and recreational experiences available in Disneytown, Wishing Star Park and Shanghai Disneyland Hotel. Each of these resort locations will operate under limited capacity and reduced hours of operation. The Disney Car and Coach Park and the Disneytown Parking Lot will also reopen.
The resort will provide an extensive range of measures, designed to ensure a safe and healthy experience for all guests, Cast Members and Disneytown tenant employees, including strict and comprehensive approaches on sanitization, disinfection and cleanliness. In accordance with relevant regulations, every guest entering Shanghai Disney Resort will be required to undergo temperature screening procedures and present their Shanghai QR Code. Only guests with a green Shanghai QR Code will be allowed to enter the resort. Guests must wear a mask during their entire visit (except when dining), and will also be reminded to maintain respectful social distances at all times while in stores, queues and restaurants.
Of note here is the expansion of the use of the Shanghai QR Code, an app that monitors a persons health. In their previous statement, Shanghai Disneyland said that guests would have to present their QR Code when entering dining venues. Now, guests must present their QR Code when entering the resort period, not just dining venues. Only guests with a green QR Code will be allowed into the resort. Guests must wear a mask during their entire visit (except when dining), and will also be reminded to maintain respectful social distances at all times while in stores, queues and restaurants.
With Bob Iger saying that Disney is looking to China when it comes to implementing strategies domestically, do you think that Disney will require a clean bill of health from guests wanting to visit Disneyland or Walt Disney World when it reopens? We have complied some of the changes we expect to see when the parks reopen in our post below.
