Other precautions taken to protect against the disease include temperature screening and the mandatory use of facemasks, according to operations procedures published on the Tokyo Disney Resort's website in late June.

Staff members are also asking guests to refrain from screaming loudly on rides, in accordance with guidelines first published by Japan's main amusement park associations in May.

Masahiko Endo, a 37-year-old care worker from Tokyo, says he agrees with the decision to limit the number of guests entering the park, which is located about 15 kilometers away from central Tokyo.

"I hope the pandemic will be contained soon so that Disney can go back to being a place anyone can visit," he says, clutching a Duffy the Disney Bear toy.

Tokyo Disney Resort, consisting of both Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea, is the third Disney-themed park globally to reopen following the coronavirus pandemic, according to operator Oriental Land.

It attracted over 32.5 million visitors in 2018 and had sales of 437 billion yen ($4.06 billion) in the fiscal year of 2019.
