After an announcement that Disneyland would be closing their gates due to Coronavirus (COVID-19), Walt Disney World has followed suit and announced a closure of their own. According to Disney, Walt Disney World will be closed starting March 16th through the end of March. Here’s Disney’s statement:
“In an abundance of caution and in the best interest of our guests and employees, we are proceeding with the closure of our theme parks at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and Disneyland Paris Resort, beginning at the close of business on Sunday, March 15, through the end of the month”
