Starting March 21st, 2022, Shanghai Disney Resort will be closing again for the COVID19 pandemic.

The last time that Shanghai Disney Resort was closed was in the Fall of 2021 for the same reason. The statement from the park reads:

“Due to the current pandemic situation, Shanghai Disney Resort, including Shanghai Disneyland, Disneytown, and Wishing Star Park will be temporarily closed from Monday, March 21st, 2022. We will continue to monitor the pandemic situation and consult with local authorities, and will notify guests as soon as we have a confirmed date to resume operations. We apologize for the inconvenience and will provide refund or exchange for all guests impacted during this period. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation! We look forward to seeing you soon!”

Disney Food Blog states that they checked the theme park calendar and the park shows no reopening date and seems close indefinitely. However, they did see tickets available for March 23rd, but this could be a fluke because it seems in their statement that they are unclear about the reopening date.

Shanghai Disney Resort recently made it a requirement to show proof of a negative COVID19 test 24 hours before entering the resort. The resort is also reportedly opening at limited capacity, attractions are at lower capacity, and show were suspended temporarily.

If a guest had a ticket for these closed dates they can use it within six months of the closure or they can a refund if they cannot return to the resort within six months. More information on this can be obtained on the Shanghai Disney Resort website. The resort hotels will operate normally, but they can be cancelled or changed by the company from which the guest first booked through. For any questions on tickets or hotel stays during this closure time, please contact the Shanghai Disney Resort.
