Disneyland Paris will remain closed to the public “until further notice” due to the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, it has been officially announced.
The resort closed temporarily its gates on 14th March after French government banned mass gatherings in the country to help stop the spread of the novel virus. Through the initial plan was for the DLP to remain closed just until the end of the month, the decision has been made to extend this downtime to an as of yet undecided date.
As a result of the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic and in line with government measures, Disneyland Paris will remain closed until further notice. We look forward to welcoming guests to our resort again once it is advisable to do so.
Official Disneyland Paris statement
No doubt this is in response to governmental decisions to continue the lockdown of non-essential travel spread throughout France and Europe to combat COVID-19. On Friday French Prime Minister Édouard Philippe revealed the lockdown would last at least until 15th April. This by default would have meant Disneyland Paris’ closure was to carry on to that date at the very least.
The global pandemic and subsequent closure of DLP has lead to a number of cancellations of events and happenings throughout the resort. The most recent Annual Pass Night and inaugural Disneyland Paris Princess Run were the first to be axed as result. Today has also seen confirmation that Marvel Season of Super Heroes will no longer return for 2020.
A dedicated webpage has been set up on the official Disneyland Paris website answering as many questions as possible guests may have on the resort’s closure, what has been affected and how to reschedule or refund a booking that has been affected by the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak.
