SHANGHAI — Visitors wearing face masks streamed into Shanghai Disneyland as the theme park reopened in a high-profile step toward reviving tourism that was shut down by the coronavirus pandemic.

The park will limit numbers of daily visitors and keep some attractions closed in line with social distancing guidelines.

The reopening comes as companies and the ruling Communist Party try revive the world’s second-largest economy following a shutdown that plunged it into its worst slump since at least the 1960s.
