Tokyo Disneyland Resort has announced that they will be extending their closure due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic concerns. The extension is in response to a request from the Japanese government and local authorities.
Previous to this extension, Tokyo Disneyland had planned on reopening on April 20th at the earliest. With this latest update, there is no planned reopening date, but Disney plans on making a new announcement in mid-May.
Of course, Tokyo Disneyland was nearly at the finish line with their new Fantasyland expansion area themed to Beauty and the Beast before the parks had to close. Tokyo Disneyland says that a new opening date hasn’t been determined and that an opening date for the new area will be announced once the parks have reopened.
Here is the full statement:
The temporary closures of Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea have been extended in light of the increasing spread of the new coronavirus (COVID-19) and in response to the requests from the Japanese government and local authorities.
The reopening of the Parks, which had been planned for April 20 or beyond, has been extended further. The reopening date will be determined in mid-May, after which a new announcement will be sent out. Additionally, the opening of the Tokyo Disneyland Expansion new area will be determined and announced once the Parks have reopened.
