Disneyland Paris — home to Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park — originally reopened on July 15, 2020 following its first closure due to the pandemic. Then, theme park officials made the decision to close for a second time in October due to French government regulations, with an original anticipated reopening date of February 13, 2021. However, in January, they decided to push that anticipated reopening date back to April, again due to French restrictions.

Now, that date is once again being pushed back due to “prevailing conditions and travel restrictions across Europe”.
