Disneyland Paris re-opening delayed again with no new date given

Disneyland Paris will remain closed until further notice as the 2nd April re-opening has been cancelled

Disneyland Paris’ planned re-opening date has been delayed once again with no new date released, meaning the resort will remain closed until further notice.

The resort was aiming to return to a reduced capacity by 2nd April, but DLP via an official announcement earlier today a decision was made to cancel this aimed return and thus extending the temporary closure. The continuing global pandemic including travel restrictions currently implemented throughout Europe were specifically mentioned as causes for this decision.

No new re-opening date has been given at the time of writing, though official sources are optimistic such an announcement and return to operations can happen soon.

Due to prevailing conditions and travel restrictions across Europe, Disneyland Paris will not be able to reopen on April 2 as initially planned. We are optimistic that we will be able to reopen soon, and we will share updates when possible.

Official Disneyland Paris statement

Any guests currently with a booking for the resort are being urged to visit the official website for more information on how they can adjust or cancel their planned holiday accordingly. Due to this unprecedented circumstances there will be no additional fees for guests who wish to modify or cancel their bookings.

Europe’s No.1 tourist destination is currently still under its second temporary closure as result of the COVID-19 global pandemic, closing its gates back in October after a short lived Summer period. Despite best efforts for a short Christmas period or even a February return of the magic, increasing cases and national lockdowns meant that these simply were not feasible as such were abandoned.

With today’s news of another extension to the closure, guests will have to wait a little longer before they can once again walk down to Main Street U.S.A., take in the atmosphere of Frontierland or see the latest progress on Sleeping Beauty’s Castle as its major refurbishment is now well under way.

There has been some positive news for the resort amongst the quietness of 2021. In February World of Disney at Disney Village saw a temporary re-opening for 3 consecutive weekends, allowing guests to shop during the Winter Sales while observing all necessary social distancing and safety measures. This project is set to briefly return this coming weekend to mark the launch of the ‘2021’ merchandise range.
