Transcript for New safety measures at Shanghai Disneyland as park reopens amid coronavirus
We turn now to Shanghai disneyland. It is starting to re-open this morning, just the first phase, a careful first phase, with visitors required to wear masks, submit temperature screenings and social distancing. Will reeve joins us for what this could mean for parks here in the U.S. Good morning, will. Reporter: Good morning, George. Careful is the operative word here. So many of those safety measures in place, visiting capped at one-third capacity, but as Disney looks ahead to what might be in store for its other parks around the world, there is light at the end of the tunnel. Overnight, the doors opening in Shanghai disneyland. Marking the first of Disney's major parks to resume operations. Tickets for the re-opening selling out in minutes, but it won't be business as usual. The re-opening set to be a cautious and measured phased event, prioritizing safety. We have cast members throughout the park that are continuously wiping down and making sure that everything is disinfected and sanitized. Reporter: Along with increased cleaning, the park limiting total attendance to 30% capacity. Temperature screenings and face coverings required for all guests entering the park, and social distancing enforced at all times. Whether it's at the main entrance, attractions, restaurants, shops, everywhere you go, just give people space. Reporter: While Disney, the parent company of ABC news, is still keeping its U.S., Hong Kong, Tokyo and Paris parks closed, the company announcing a phased re-opening of Florida's retail, dining and entertainment center, Disney springs, beginning may 20. The Walt Disney company saying in a press release, quote, a limited number of shopping and dining experiences that are owned by third party operating participant will begin to open during this initial phase. The rest of Walt Disney world resort will remain closed including theme parks and hotels. As for whether Shanghai disneyland will provides a blueprint for the re-opening of Disney parks worldwide -- We communicate with other parks around the world and share best practices. Hopefully we can inspire them and share those best practices here and they'll adapt based on what they need to do there to satisfy their guests and their communities. Reporter: There is no concrete timeline for Disney's other parks to re-open the public around the world, but expect similar safety measures and precautions to those implemented at Shanghai disneyland. George? Cannot be too safe. Will, thanks very much.
