TOKYO -- Tokyo Disney Resort is to reopen on July 1, giving a measure of relief to fans of Mickey Mouse and other characters -- but in a truncated format that reflects how the coronavirus pandemic has hit one of the world's most recognisable theme park brands.

Oriental Land, operator of the resort, announced the reopening on Tuesday, the latest in a string of Disney venues worldwide that have sprung back to life but with strict measures to prevent further coronavirus outbreaks.
