As of this writing, Disney World has NOT announced any further closures. They are expected to reopen on April 1, 2020. However, analysts do not believe this to be the case.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, Disney World theme parks could be closed longer than the scheduled two weeks. They also reported this could cost the company $1.4 billion dollars in revenue.

Disneyland just released some AMAZING spring discounts starting April 19, 2020. With these new deals breaking, Disneyland would hope to be opening at least by then.

I would not be surprised to see some great deals coming to Disney World in the near future. Be sure to stay tuned for that information!

Permanent Entertainment Cuts at Epcot

With Disney World closing, many programs and entertainment have been cut. We saw that the Disney College Program ended early.

We also saw entertainment cut at EPCOT. Entertainment such as Jeweled acrobats in China to Sergio the juggler in Italy will not be returning when the parks open back up.

We missed our 10 day WDW trip 3/20-3-29. We are devastated. For what it’s worth, I think this country is in overreaction mode. This is my opinion and I’m entitled to it. I’m not sure when we’ll be able to go again. The whole situation is so sad. Trying to find fun things for the kids to do now is defeating.

Do some research. You'll find that this virus is deadly. As of now 10% of infected closed cases have ended in death and many others will have lifelong complications. Read actual medical works, don't just read Facebook posts. It's serious

What I think is, they will be closed for a long, long time. Shockingly long. :(

They should be closed longer than April 1st but not not as long as April 15th if CDC says so. Depends on what happens March 31st.
