With just days to go before the end of the previously announced COVID-19 coronavirus closure period, Disney Parks have provided an update with regards to the status of the Disney Parks in the US with a new official statement.

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, the Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort will remain closed until further notice.

The Walt Disney Company has been paying its cast members since the closure of the parks, and in light of this ongoing and increasingly complex crisis, we have mdae the decision to extend paying hourly parks and resorts cast members through April 18.

An additional note is found on the official Disneyland website with additional information for guests impacted by the closures:

The Disneyland Resort will work with Guests who have reservations for Disneyland Resort hotel room stays during this closure to help modify their visits. We anticipate heavy call volume over the next several days and we appreciate our Guests’ patience as we work hard to respond to all inquiries. Please contact The Walt Disney Travel Company for questions and modifications at (714) 520-5050.
