[Updated 6am, Oct.29] Disneyland Paris and other major theme parks in France and Germany will close again due to the pandemic, as the two nations have ordered new national lockdowns in response to a resurgence of Covid-19 cases.
In France, the lockdown begins Friday and will continue until December 1. The order will be reassessed every two weeks, according to government officials. Disneyland Paris announced Thursday that it will close at the end of the day. Disney did not provide a reopening date, but said that it will take reservations for December 19 through January 3, 2021 and "hope[s] to be open based on prevailing conditions and government guidance at that time." Disneyland Paris also announced that its parks will close from January 4 through February 12.
In Germany, the closures begin on Monday, November 2, and will continue through at least November 11, when top officials will meet to decide on future action. Europa Park — Germany's largest theme park and the most visited park in Europe outside of Disneyland Paris — announced that it will close on November 2 and remain closed through November 30.
Within the past week, theme parks in Italy and Belgium have been ordered to close, as the number of cases in Europe rises.Tweet
