Hong Kong (CNN) — On June 18, Hong Kong Disneyland will become the world's second Disney park to reopen.

One of the smallest Disney theme parks, it closed on January 26 due to the global coronavirus crisis and has remained shut since then, with a few exceptions -- namely its hotels and a few on-site restaurants.

Shanghai Disneyland was the first park to reopen, welcoming guests back on May 11.

Its reopening gave clues as to what Disney parks around the world would look like post-coronavirus, with social distancing regulations enforced and both guests and employees (aka cast members) sporting face masks.

And it looks like Hong Kong Disneyland will follow similar procedures.

"We are proud to be part of the Hong Kong community, which has worked hard and shown fortitude in how it has handled the pandemic," Stephanie Young, the park's managing director, said in a statement.

While waiting for crowds to return, Hong Kong Disneyland has been continuing work on its newest attraction, the Castle of Magical Dreams.

Hong Kong Disneyland is also hard at work on a new "Frozen" themed section, with an area themed around Elsa, Anna, Olaf and the other characters from the current record holder for highest-grossing animated film ever.

Outside of greater China, though, Disney fans will still have to wait to get their theme park fix.

Disney's parks in California, Florida, Japan and France are currently closed.
