This is great because we don’t have to see middle-aged people without children going to Disneyland in marching clothes.

Wouldn't it be nice if Disneyland here excluded people over 20 that aren’t with children just one day a week so children can enjoy the park without the long lines if 30-somethings?

Disney know that these drip drip extensions that Abe is "requesting" is bogus.They just getting ahead of him,and not getting any fake hopes up.Will continue past April I reckon.

I’m glad they’re putting public health concerns before profits

@tooheysnew,

I doubt it is that 'they're putting public health concerns before profits.'

More like......the drop in Chinese tourists due to Corona and Japanese tourists due to having no money and Tokyo Disneyland never updating their rides might have a lot more to do with it.

I feel bad for the staff. Their wages are already low enough as it is, now they're going a full month without work...

also I went to both parks the weekend before they announced the closure. It was packed to the brim, even with Corona fears.

Disneyland in the U.S. has closed its doors for now as well.
