Walt Disney World and Disneyland now closed indefinitely

LAKE BUENA VISTA — Both Walt Disney World and Disneyland are closed indefinitely amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Both parks have updated their closure information and posted new details for travellers who have upcoming Disney vacations on their calendars.

Previously, on March 13, the parks announced they would remain closed until the end of March. Now the closures are until further notice.

“Walt Disney World theme parks, Disney Resort hotels and the Disney Springs area are currently closed and a reopening date has not been identified. For Guests who are interested in modifying their existing travel dates or making a new reservation for a future vacation, reservations are currently available for travel dates June 1 and later,” says a Walt Disney World Resort statement. “As always, Guests are able to modify these bookings if Walt Disney World Resort opens before or after this time.”

Updating its previously announced change policy, WDW says unexpired multi-day theme park tickets with unused days, or date-specific theme park tickets with a valid use period beginning March 12, 2020 through the closure will automatically be extended to use any date through Dec. 15, 2020. If customers aren’t able to visit by Dec. 15, they may apply the value of a wholly unused ticket toward the purchase of a ticket for a future date.

All Disney-imposed change and cancellation fees up to the date of check-in for reservations with arrivals through June 30, 2020 will be waived.
