Disneyland Amusement Park in Tokyo will be closed at least until mid-May due to the Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. This was reported by WDW News Today on Thursday, April 8, citing the statement of the operator Oriental Land.

The DisneySea water amusement park will also be closed.

Guests with unused tickets, which expire from February 29 to May 31, 2020, may request to exchange their tickets for an open date ticket, which expires March 31, 2021. Guests with annual passes will be extended.

It is also noted that Disneyland parks are currently closed worldwide.

On 7 April, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announced an emergency regime in seven prefectures against the backdrop of a coronavirus pandemic.

The emergency regime will operate in Tokyo, Osaka, Kanagawa, Saitama, Tiba, Hyogo and Fukuoka for a month, until 6 May inclusive.

In particular, citizens are forbidden to go to work, visit hospitals and most of the crowded areas will be closed. However, there will be no train stops, and no fines for violation of the regime are not expected yet.
