BREAKING: Tokyo Disney Resort Closure Extended Through April 20th
As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak continues to evolve, the situation in Japan has worsened, and the Oriental Land Company has given us even more sad news today. For the safety of Guests and Cast Members, the Tokyo Disney Resort closed on February 29th. Originally, the park was set to re-open on March 15th. Then it was extended through early April. But it seems this will not come to pass once again, as it was announced today that the closure will extend through at least April 20th, 2020.
This closure applies to both Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea. The Ikspiari shopping mall adjacent to Tokyo Disney Resort will also be closed during this time. However, Ikspiari announced today that they are tentatively set to reopen on April 13th.
Guests with unused tickets dated or expiring between February 29th-May 31st, 2020 can have their ticket changed to an open-dated ticket expiring March 31st, 2021. Guests with Annual Passports will have the expiration date extended. Details will be released later.
While we’re very disappointed to see this development, it’s for the best. The safety of Guests and Cast Members is the highest priority, and it’s critical that the COVID-19 situation gets closer to under control. No Disney parks are currently operating across the world.
Be sure to keep your eyes on a trusted global news source and check with your doctor and the US State Department before travel. If you choose to come, wash your hands as often as possible, use hand sanitizer, and consider wearing a mask and/or touching your face as little as possible.
