Disneyland Paris, other French attractions close as COVID-19 cases surge in France

Disneyland Paris said it would close Thursday as France locked down amid a surge in coronavirus cases, and other French tourist attractions were all but certain to shut their doors.

French President Emmanuel Macron announced a full, nationwide lockdown starting Thursday and lasting until Dec. 1, though he said schools would remain open.

In a statement posted to Twitter Thursday, Disneyland Paris characterized the closure as “temporary.”

“In anticipation of the Christmas holiday season, we will be taking reservations from December 19 – January 3 and hope to be open based on prevailing conditions and government guidance at that time,” the theme park’s statement said.
