Disneyland Paris to close as France begins a second COVID-19 shutdown

Oct 29, 2020 in "The Walt Disney Company"

Posted: Thursday October 29, 2020 8:47am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Disneyland Paris will close again as the French government orders a lockdown to contain a recent surge of COVID-19.

In line with latest direction from the French authorities, Disneyland Paris will be closing end of day on October 29th. In anticipation of celebrating the Christmas holiday season we will be taking reservations from December 19 – January 3 and hope to be open based on prevailing conditions and government guidance at that time. Disneyland Paris will be closed from January 4 through February 12

Disneyland Paris reopened from the original COVID-19 shutdown on July 15 2020 at the same time as Walt Disney World.

The phased reopening began with Disneyland Park, Walt Disney Studios Park, Disney’s Newport Bay Club hotel, and Disney Village.

One more meeting to go through Monday then they can announce it. I took PTO for 25/06, hopefully my sources are right and the meeting goes well 😂

We got teased by Bob for a reopening date being announced 'very soon'. Rare for DLP to get a mention in an earnings call... I think I prefer it when Bob forgets we exist. ;)

Yes, DLP closed for the second time in late October.


Is this park currently closed?

I’m guessing it’ll be next week with today being a bank holiday in France.

I’d presume there’ll be an announcement somewhat soon if they’re planning for then?

Disneyland Park is 40k and WDSP *WAS* 28k but with so many rides closed, probably much less atm
