Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure will close on March 14 until the end month due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) worldwide pandemic. 

Disney stated that it made the decision after carefully reviewing the guidelines of the Governor of California's executive order. It added that a temporary closure is in the best interest of its guests and employees. However, there have been no reported cases of COVID-19 at either of the parks. 

The company also notes that all staff and performers will be paid during the closure. 

Disneyland Resort hotels will remain open until Monday, March 16 so guests can make neccessary travel arrangements; downtown Disney will remain open. 

Disney says that it will work with guests who have made bookings at the resort during this period, "to change or cancel their visits, and will provide refunds to those who have hotel bookings during the closure period."  However, the company notes that it anticipates a high call volume over the next few days. 

For questions and cancellations, contact The Walt Disney Company at 714-520-5050.
