Disneyland Paris Cancels “Disney Illuminations” and “Star Wars: A Galactic Celebration” Nighttime Shows Due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) Related Government Regulations

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Another set of recent cancellations has been announced for Disneyland Paris, now with the suspension of two nighttime spectaculars: Disney Illuminations and Star Wars: A Galactic Celebration.

According to OutsidEars, the two shows are canceled until further notice at Disneyland Paris. The reason cited for the cancellations is “to guarantee the safety of visitors and comply with government instructions.”

Other recent cancellations include the “Disneyland Park Adventures” Annual Passholder event that was slated to take place this Friday.

This announcement comes on the heels of two more Cast Members being confirmed as having the virus.

Due to rising concerns over transmission of the virus, France has established a temporary ban on gatherings of more than 1,000 people in a confined space. Disneyland Paris has yet to comment directly on the ban. New safety precautions were laid out for various entertainment venues and restaurants, as well as changes to attractions, like the suspension of Single Rider queues.

We’ll keep our eyes on developments here in Paris as well as in Tokyo, Shanghai, and Hong Kong regarding the COVID-19 outbreak’s effect on Disney Parks operations.

when will Disney Paris do the responsible thing and close??? Children are known to be spreaders even though they are not badly effected.
They are going to cause widespread infections!

What is single rider queuing? The worrying thing is that visitors from other countries are putting themselves at risk by travelling. I certainly wouldn’t want to end up being quarantined overseas Will refunds be given or bookings moveable til layer in the year as risk subsides?

A Single Rider queue is a separate line queue often added to the most popular attractions, intended primarily for solo guests who would like to experience a potentially shorter wait, or groups who want a shorter wait and don’t mind being split up and directed to ride separately. It’s a way of filling available spots so that seats aren’t left empty.

I don’t get how suspending the use of these queues is supposed to help, though, as they’ve never seemed significantly different from regular standby queues in terms of design, based on my own experience anyway.
