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

25 days ago in "The Walt Disney Company"

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.

Not sure where to put this, but I figured this was the best spot. Terrific video, @marni1971 ! And nice to see Mrs. Martin!

I wonder what they will do about Christmas decorations? I guess they won’t do anything until they know about opening or not but will it be full on or scaled back?

If they only had a national plan to address COVID and a national mask mandate they would have avoided this fate.

It shouldn’t. French furlough is already planned to run way into next year. As far as I know cast training should also not be an issue if they didn’t open for Christmas.

Think this is for the best. with cases rising in Europe I don’t see DLP being on many peoples lists of things to do right now. I’m surprised at the length of the closure and the Christmas opening if it happens, this appears to be driven far more by the economics of the resort than it does by the safety. Does anyone know if the chr reopening has any staffing impacts regarding training or furlough?

I fully expect Disney wants to be open for christmas holidays. If the government allows it, they will 99% sure do it.

4 weeks at least for french shutdown. But DLP's closure is probably going to last 2/3 months at least.

French president is going to make some announcements in less than 4 hours. Unfortunately, a closure is very likely.
