If you’ve been following along with our coverage of the Coronavirus pandemic as it affects Disney Parks, a recent US ban on travel from Europe might affect many of our international readers with plans to visit Walt Disney World Resort or Disneyland Resort.
All travel from Europe to the United States is banned starting midnight on Friday, March 13, 2020, for the next 30 days. The ban does not apply to travel from the United Kingdom, however, and exemptions are in place for Americans who have undergone screenings for the virus.
The Walt Disney Travel Company has yet to comment on the ban, but change fees were recently lifted for guests with upcoming vacation packages. In the parks themselves, heightened safety and sanitation measures have been implemented, including new portable hand-washing stations throughout all of Walt Disney World.
We’ll be keeping our eyes on developments here in Florida and in California, as well as in Paris, and Tokyo, Shanghai, and Hong Kong regarding the COVID-19 outbreak’s effect on Disney Parks operations and beyond.
