Disney has taken to Twitter to announce that Disneyland will cease operations temporarily on Saturday, March 14th, 2020 until the end of the month as a precautionary measure to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19).
The closure comes just hours after the city of Anaheim announced a ban on large public gatherings of more than 250 people. Disneyland and other casinos were exempt from this ban, therefore the decision to close comes directly from Disney.
During the closure, Downtown Disney will remain open throughout the month. The hotels of Disneyland Resort will close on March 16th to give guests the ability to make necessary travel arrangements.
