Hong Kong Disneyland has confirmed that it will be joining Shanghai Disney Resort with closures of the Disney parks in response to the very serious threat of the spread of Wuhan coronavirus in China.
Following guidance from China’s National Health Commission and in step with other public facilities — including movie theaters — both Resorts are temporarily ceasing select operations to help discourage the further spread of the virus which has reportedly been found widely spread in China plus other countries including US and Canada.
Sobering messages have been posted on the official website for both destinations as well as details about procedures and refunds for both Hong Kong Disneyland and Shanghai Disney Resort.
