For official information about the Disney Parks, please visit the official websites for each location.
For the first time in history, all six of the Disney Theme Park Resorts around the world will be closed at once due to concern over the Coronavirus outbreak.
While we are saddened by this news, we are grateful that Disney has taken these precautionary measures with the health and safety of their guests and employees in mind, and we are hopeful that this will help to slow the spread of the Coronavirus as it has been rapidly spreading at an unprecedented rate across the globe.
According to Disney’s official statements, this what we currently know about their theme park closures (last updated on March 27, 2020):
- All parks at Disneyland in California closed on March 14 and will remain closed until further notice (Disneyland resort hotels and Downtown Disney also closed on March 16).
- All parks at Walt Disney World closed on March 16 and will remain closed until further notice (Disney World resort hotels closed on March 20 and Disney Springs is also currently closed right now).
- Disneyland Paris states that they expect to remain closed until the end of March. The Disney Hotels and Disney Village are also currently closed.
- Hong Kong Disneyland remains closed until further notice, having closed on January 26, 2020.
- Shanghai Disneyland also remains closed until further notice after it officially closed on January 25, 2020, though Disneytown, Wishing Star Park, and the Shanghai Disneyland Hotel did at least partially reopen on March 9 according to their official website.
- Tokyo Disney Resort (Tokyo Disneyland and DisneySea) was originally set to reopen on March 15 according to reports on February 28, 2020. However, Tokyo Disney Resort has stated that they have extended the closure time period and will remain closed until “April 20 or beyond”.
All of these closures and reopening dates are subject to change, so keep a close watch on each of their official websites and listen for any official announcements within the coming weeks to know if any of this information has changed. Disney is also implementing some temporary changes to refund and rescheduling policies in order to better help their guests during these changes which can be found on their official websites. We have listed the link for Walt Disney World below:

The Walt Disney Company has also announced that they will continue to pay their Cast Members during the closure, and Disneyland has also just announced this morning that they will be donating excess food to Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County.
Changes in operation have also gone into affect for Disney Cruise Line as well as several other major (non-Disney) theme parks, including Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Studios Orlando, which will also temporary close their theme parks due to Coronavirus concerns.
We continue to pray for everyone affected by Coronavirus and that life for every person will soon return to normal as we continue to fight the spread of Coronavirus around the world. We sincerely hope that all theme parks will be able to reopen soon, but for the meantime we understand why they have decided to close and think that this decision is best given the circumstances and the legitimate concern of Coronavirus spread.
We will continue to update our website when new information is released and once the parks officially reopen.
