Tokyo Disney Resort Extends its Theme Parks' Closure
The Tokyo Disney Resort announced today that it will not reopen April 20, as earlier planned.
In a statement released on the Oriental Land Co. website, the owner of the Tokyo Disney Resort said that a determination about an opening date for Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea will not be made until mid-May.
The Tokyo Disney parks closed in late February, with plans to open in the middle of March. But the resort extended the downtime and now has extended it again, this time with no planed reopening date.
Japan earlier this week declared a month-long state of emergency for Tokyo and six other prefectures that made an extension of the theme parks' closure inevitable. The postponement of Tokyo Disney's reopening also effectively postpones the debut of the expansion at Tokyo Disneyland, which will include a new Beauty and the Beast-themed trackless dark ride, a Big Hero 6-themed spinner ride, and a Broadway-style theater for new musical productions.
With this action today, all Disney theme parks around the world are closed now until further notice, with no announced reopening dates.
