The House of Mouse's experience in Shanghai, the first of its parks to reopen, foreshadows hurdles global leisure industries might face. Disney is limiting visitor numbers, requiring masks and checking for the virus's telltale fever.

China, where the pandemic began in December, was the first country to reopen factories and other businesses after declaring the disease under control in March even as infections rise and controls are tightened in some other countries.

"A Disney park is a place unlike any other - where we are transported to wondrous worlds of fantasy and adventure to create unforgettable memories that will last a lifetime," Shanghai Disney Resort president Joe Schott wrote in a Disney Parks Blog post Monday. "Today, we marked a return to those worlds, as Shanghai Disneyland reopened its gates to welcome guests and fans."He added: "For myself - and for our Shanghai Disney Resort cast members, who have taken great care to prepare the park for our guests - this is a very special moment. Making magic means even more to us today, as we reflect on the resilience of our community; our wonderful cast members who worked so diligently to preserve the park during the closure; the enthusiasm of our guests and fans; and, of course, the determination and dedication of the medical workers and first responders who helped to make this possible."

Tourism has been hit especially hard by controls imposed around the world that shut down airline and cruise ship travel, theme parks and cinemas. Disney blamed a 91% plunge in its latest quarter profit on $1.4 billion in virus-related costs.

Shanghai Disneyland and Disney's park in Hong Kong closed on Jan. 25 as China isolated cities with 60 million people to try to contain the outbreak. Tokyo Disneyland closed the following month and parks in the United States and Europe in March."We hope that today's reopening serves as a beacon of light across the globe, providing hope and inspiration to everyone," Schott told reporters.

China has allowed shops and offices to reopen but is keeping cinemas, bars, karaoke parlors and other businesses closed.

Disney guests, some wearing Mickey Mouse ears, and children in Little Mermaid, Mulan, Minnie Mouse and Snow White costumes were checked Monday for fever at the park gate and then walked down nearly empty lanes as employees waved to them. The company's signature tune, "When You Wish Upon a Star," played over loudspeakers.
