Disneyland Paris will close after Sunday, March 15, and is set to remain closed through the end of the end of the month. Its resort hotels, as well as Disney Village, are scheduled to remain open. Cast Members will continue to receive wages throughout the closure period.
With Disneyland Paris and now Walt Disney World closed, no Disney Parks remain open. Shanghai Disneyland, Hong Kong Disneyland, and Tokyo Disney Resort have all also closed in response to the Coronavirus outbreak. While a prospective reopening date has been established (and later postponed) for Tokyo Disney Resort, it is unknown when the rest of these parks will re-open.
We’ll keep our eyes on developments here as well as in Tokyo, Shanghai, and Hong Kong regarding the COVID-19 outbreak’s effect on Disney Parks operations.
