The pandemic continues to spread across the globe, and to Disney, particularly in the US. Companies are not yet allowed to open their gates for massive crowds to enter their theme parks.
The company has released a new statement that reads, “While there is still much uncertainty with respect to the impacts of COVID-19, the safety and well-being of our guests and employees remain The Walt Disney Company’s top priority. As a result of this unprecedented pandemic and in line with direction provided by health experts and government officials, Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort will remain closed until further notice.”
Disneyland and Disney World gates will remain close until at least the end of this month. In the statement, they have also shared the facts that their cast members will still get paid during the closure up to April 18.
Meanwhile, Shanghai Disney Resort has announced its wish to reopen several stores, restaurants and ‘recreational experiences’ that are located at the resort areas. In Japan, Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea have announced that their gates may remain closed until April 20.
