Shanghai Disneyland closes due to outbreak of a pneumonia-like illness in China

I would not cancel unless it’s literally still closed for any of your travel dates. Perhaps morbid, but after an event like this, where tourism will be quite severely impacted, but the actual infrastructure is fine... you’ll all have a wonderful time with low crowds.

Also as mentioned in other parts of the board, the current outbreak is not geographically anywhere near either park.

I had a trip booked pre Fukushima and watched with baited breath as the parks were also indefinitely closed. We went about 3 weeks after it reopened and it was a remarkably wonderful trip. Countries need tourism especially after something of this scale. I feel and understand your collective worry though!

I know it’s a horrible thing what’s going on over there but I’m worried what this will do to the current projects going on in the US parks. I’d be surprised if things do not trickle down.

That's a given. - Projects slowing down, limited parks and resorts offerings, cast member work hours and jobs affected.

WHO declared coranovirus a public health emergency.

Also, Tokyo Disney Resort has suspended face character meets effective immediately until further notice.

This afternoon both Delta and American Airlines announced suspension of flights to mainland China, effective within the next few days and ongoing through at least the end of March (March 28th for American, April 30th for Delta).

Looks like this is going to become a long-duration event.

Since the last update, Hong Kong Disneyland closed TWO of their THREE hotels with only HK Disneyland Hotel remaining in operation.
Sounds like the HK government wants to use the hotels as quarantine centers too...
