VIDEO: An Emotional Character-Filled Farewell as the Magic Kingdom Closes Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic

Today marked a day in Disney history, as all Disney Parks around the globe have now officially closed due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic that is currently sweeping the nation. Tonight, fans came out in droves (we’re guessing nobody got the note on “social distancing”) to the Magic Kingdom, closing out the park with a special, character-filled farewell.

Watch as a full cast of characters say goodbye to the Most Magical Place on Earth along with guests, all before the park closes for the remainder of the month––if not longer:

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 pandemic’s effect on Disney Parks operations and beyond. For all of the latest Coronavirus-related Disney Parks news throughout the ongoing pandemic, continue to check here.

From all of us at WDWNT, we hope our readers stay healthy and safe during the outbreak––keep washing those hands, bunker down at home, and stay entertained by watching our full library of YouTube content from Disney Parks around the globe! See ya real soon!
