Amid the Coronavirus pandemic, Disneyland Paris will not open this Christmas season despite its initial plan to welcome back visitors in the time of Christmas celebration.
While the people are hoping to be able to reopen Disneyland during the Christmas holiday season but the latest government measures announced for France notify that they don’t allow people to enjoy the Disneyland experience, therefore the most visited destination will remain closed till 12 February 2021, a message on the Disneyland’s website and Instagram posted on Wednesday.
After the lockdown, the park had reopened in July but closed once again in October with the promise to welcome back visitors from December 19 to January 3, 2021, and then again close from January 4 to February 12.
Visitors have already booked tickets, but the authority has also postponed the visit for the now-canceled date. The website also cleared that if the new booking time is at a cheaper price than Disneyland will refund the difference. Dated tickets will be automatically refunded.
According to the news, it was recently announced that Disneyland California is expected to stay closed until the end of the year, whereas Disney World Resort in Orlando, Fl is currently open.
The entire scenario is related to the Coronavirus outbreak as France is currently under the second phase of lockdown due to a boom in COVID-19 cases.
Emmanuel Macron, President of France, announced on Tuesday in the television address that lockdown restrictions will ease on Saturday, allowing businesses to reopen in the given time for the holiday shopping season while allowing people to travel up to 20 kilometers only for outdoor exercise, reported BBC.
Alongside, the reopening of the movie theaters and museums could possibly follow on December 15, and restaurants on January 20 probably depending on the status of the virus.
The BBC reported that France reported the lowest number of COVID-19 cases since September 28 on Monday at 4,452 infections. Till now, France has reported 2.2 million cases of the coronavirus and over 50,000 deaths in total, according to the Johns Hopkins University data.
