Disneyland Announces Temporary Closure Of Theme Park In Anaheim, California From March 14 - <font color=red>UPDATE</font>

For only the forth time in history, Disneyland will officially close its doors from March 14 through the end of the month due to concerns over the spread of COVID-19. Check out the official statement...

As the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) continues to result in event cancellations and film release date delays, Disneyland has announced that its California theme park will close starting March 14 through the end of the month

Disneyland Resort hotels will remain open until March 16 so guests can make necessary travel accommodations.

This is only the fourth time in history that this park has fully suspended operations. The other instances were the Sept. 11 attacks, the morning after JFK’s assassination and the Northridge earthquake. It’s unclear if Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla., will remain open.

“While there have been no reported cases of COVID-19 at Disneyland Resort, after carefully reviewing the guidelines of the Governor of California’s executive order and in the best interest of our guests and employees, we are proceeding with the closure of Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure, beginning the morning of March 14 through the end of the month.

The Hotels of Disneyland Resort will remain open until Monday, March 16 to give guests the ability to make necessary travel arrangements; Downtown Disney will remain open. We will monitor the ongoing situation and follow the advice and guidance of federal and state officials and health agencies. Disney will continue to pay cast members during this time.

UPDATE: Disneyland has now announced that it will also temporarily close its parks in Florida and Paris:

In an abundance of caution and in the best interest of our guests and employees, we are proceeding with the closure of our theme parks at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and Disneyland Paris Resort, beginning at the close of business on Sunday, March 15, through the end of the month.
