Could we be living without any Disney magic for a lot longer than we expected to?
The CDC has issued a new guidance today that “recommends that for the next 8 weeks, organizers (whether groups or individuals) cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the United States.”
Even on the lightest of days, you’d be hard pressed to find less than 50 people in your field of view at any Disney Park.
Here’s the full statement from the CDC…
Disneyland and Walt Disney World were expected to re-open on April 1, but this new guidance might cast some doubt on Disney Parks returning to business as usual anytime soon.
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but with some of the recent terminations at Epcot it seems like Disney execs already know the shutdown may be longer than initially announced.
Of course, Disney could absolutely defy the CDC guidance, but with COVID-19 already confirmed in an Orlando International Airport TSA agent, it might not be the smartest move (or the best PR.)
We’ll kept you posted on this unprecedented Disney Parks closure as more news is released.
