PHOTOS, VIDEO: Socially-Distanced Disney Characters Greet First Guests at Shanghai Disneyland During Grand Reopening

Shanghai Disneyland has officially reopened to the public after months of closure due to COVID-19. The first Disney Park to reopen after the unprecedented shutdown, we’re getting a first look at a new form of character greeting at the park. With newly-instated social distancing guidelines in place, all characters will now greet guests at a safe distance from guests. A slew of characters, ranging from MARVEL heroes, to Disney Princesses, and the whole Pixar gang were seen at the Shanghai Disneyland entrance, waving at guests.

Face characters, like Captain Marvel, Captain America, Thor, and Black Widow, will not be wearing masks, in order to stay in story.

With meet-and-greets temporarily suspended due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, characters will be seen in a special procession called “Mickey and Friends Express”, which will take place several times daily.

You can check out the characters in full social-distance action in the video embedded below. (You can also access it by clicking here.)
