Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea are extending their closure until early April in an attempt to stop the spread of the Coronavirus, according to Oriental Land. Co. the operators of the parks.
It was set to reopen on March 15th, but due to the current issues and a request from the government the closure will go on for a few more weeks. The park shut down on February 29th and is now closed along with schools and other tourist attractions and events.
The closures will effect the opening of the “New Fantasyland” that was scheduled to open on April 15th. The new $720 million addition will now open in mid-May 2020 instead.
Currently there is no specific dates as to when the parks will reopen in April or when the “New Fantasyland” will open in May.
As of now there are not plans to shutter the U.S. Parks, and I don’t know if Disney would due to the money they would lose. Right now they can’t afford to lose much more.
