Tokyo Disney Resort Closing Due to Coronavirus

Tokyo Disney Resort Closing Due to Coronavirus

Today it was announced that the Tokyo Disney Resort will be closing for two weeks due to the Coronavirus. This virus has already closed Shanghai Disneyland and Hong Kong Disneyland.

The Oriental Land Company released a statement saying, “Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea have decided to proceed with an extraordinary closure from Saturday, February 29, 2020, through Sunday, March 15.”

The plan is to open the Tokyo Disney Resort again on March 16th, however, this is far from certain. “Currently, we plan to reopen on March 16. But we’ll decide when to open by looking at the situation and developments. We’ll also consult (official) agencies concerned,” a spokesman said.

The decision to close the Tokyo Disney Resort came after the Japanese government encouraged large public meeting spaces to minimize the risk of further exposure and expansion of the virus.

“In view of large-scale transmission risks, we have decided to request (organizers) to cancel, postpone or hold sport and cultural events nationwide on a smaller scale than planned for the next two weeks nationwide,” Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Wednesday told a meeting of a government task force to fight the outbreak.
