As the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic continues, corporations are being compelled to revise the dates they meant to reopen. For Disney, which means its United States theme parks–Disneyland and Disney World–will not be welcoming guests by the top of the month, as initially deliberate.
In a brand new assertion, the corporate mentioned, “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.”
Furthermore, Disney addressed the standing of its staff because the parks and resorts stay closed. “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 made the decision to extend paying hourly parks and resorts cast members through April 18,” the assertion learn.
Disney’s theme parks around the globe stay closed because the coronavirus state of affairs continues to evolve. However, Shanghai Disney Resort has introduced it plans to open a limited number of shops, eating places, and “recreational experiences” accessible on the resort areas outdoors of Shanghai Disneyland. Meanwhile, Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea have seen their potential date for reopening pushed back to “April 20 or beyond.”
The information of Disney’s prolonged closures comes on the heels of Universal Studios announcing that its parks in California and Florida would stay closed till not less than April 19.
