The temporary closure of the Disney Parks went into effect earlier this week. Even though Walt Disney World is empty, their construction projects are being brought to a halt. The Centers for Disease Control and Protection (CDC) is asking everyone to take precautions. Since they are advocating for social distancing, the CDC recommends that events of 10 or more people should be either postponed or canceled.
Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando Resort, SeaWorld Orlando, and Legoland Florida are among those in central Florida who closed their doors on March 16th.
The Walt Disney Company’s current construction projects included sites in Magic Kingdom and Epcot. For example, Cinderella Castle is getting a magical makeover, and the upcoming Tron attraction is still under construction. Epcot is getting a major redesign throughout its entire theme park. A halt on construction could possibly delay them by one to three months. We don’t yet if this will change the opening dates for upcoming attractions, such as Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure. But we will follow up with news when updates for Disney projects become available.
The delay on construction is affecting other industries as well, but it’s only a temporary delay. These projects will resume in the near future, so Walt Disney World will still make magic for guests!
