Disneyland Paris looks set to temporarily close once again as France prepares to enter a second national lockdown, it has been announced.
French President Emmanuel Macron announced in an address to the country that measures will be put in place for another lockdown going into effect from Friday 30th October.
With the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic still spreading exponentially, the tough decision to place a second lockdown has been made in an attempt to help suppress the rate of infection. France is currently seeing the most severe rate of new cases it has all year, recently marking over 50,000 over 24 hours earlier this week.
As part of a lockdown, all non-essential outlets will be required to close as individuals will be told to remain home for as much as possible. Travel will be banned outside of essential travel, such as for food or the event of an emergency.
Disneyland Paris are yet to make a statement regarding the newly announced second French lockdown. However as the resort is obviously a non-essential location it will almost certainly be included in outlets that must close their doors, or in this case gates.
Should the resort enter a temporary closure, it will be the second one this year. The parks, including Disney Village and all onsite Disney Hotels were famously closed back in March until mid-July during what was France’s first lockdown. It is currently unknown how long another temporary close of the resort would last.
