BURBANK, CALIFORNIA (WSYR-TV) – Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts will remain closed indefinitely, the company announced on Friday.
“While there is still much uncertainty with respect to the impacts of COVID-19, the safety and well-being of our guests and employees remains The Walt Disney Company’s top priority,” Disney said in a statement.
The parks in Florida and California had previously planned to remain closed at least through March 31. Now, Disney says re-opening in early April appears unlikely.
The company has been paying hourly employees since closing the parks about two weeks ago. Disney said it will continue to do so at least through April 18.
