The Chinese Government in response to the slowing of the pandemic in China is allowing tourism venues to increase their capacities. Currently the capacity is set at 30% of the venues maximum, this will be increased to 50% from 24th August.

From the 24th August Shanghai Disneyland will also move from its current system of advanced reservations to an updated system. Guests will still be required to make an advanced reservation but the system will be more flexible for Annual Passholders and day guests.

Statement from: https://www.shanghaidisneyresort.com/en/

China’s Ministry of Culture and Tourism recently issued the “Notice on Further Business Resumption of Tourism Enterprises,” which raises the operating capacity of tourism sites from 30% to 50% of permitted capacity. As a result of this policy change, and as overall market conditions continue to rebound, Shanghai Disney Resort is increasing the daily capacity of the resort’s theme park, Shanghai Disneyland, and, effective August 24, 2020, will transition the current Advanced Reservation Period to a new reservation phase, aiming to provide more flexibility for guests to plan and enjoy their park visit. During this new reservation phase, the park will continue to fully comply with regulatory directives on reservations, staggered arrival and applicable capacity controls.
