Every single outdoor ride and attraction was closed to Guests as a major storm struck a Disney Parks Resort with very little warning.
Any day is a great day to enjoy a Disney Park. Whether it’s a nostalgic stroll down Main Street, U. S. A. at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom Park, being transported back 40,000 years to learn about the development of language and communication at EPCOT’s Spaceship Earth, stepping back in time to the Golden Age of Hollywood at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, or setting out on safari to see elephants and lions in their natural habitats at Disney’s Animal Kingdom’s Kilimanjaro Safaris experience, Disney’s Central Florida Parks make for an amazing day of memory-making opportunities for the whole family.
Disneyland California’s two parks–Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure–offer equally exciting experiences so that fans on the West Coast can enjoy the magic too. At Disneyland Park, Walt fans can walk along the pathways where the iconic genius visionary once walked, take in breathtaking views of Sleeping Beauty Castle, and enjoy the fun of New Orleans Square. At Disney California Adventure, Guests can head out Route 66 to Radiator Springs at the Radiator Springs Racers attraction, and nothing beats strolling along the boardwalk at PIXAR Pier!
Diehard Parks fans like this writer will say there’s no such thing as a bad time to visit a Disney Parks Resort, but as of the time of this publication, those fans stand corrected. Sunday was a terrible time to visit Disneyland Paris Resort‘s two theme parks–Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park. Just after the parks opened to Guests for the day, the unexpected happened, rendering all outdoor attractions and rides inoperable.
Twitter user DLPReport, who follows all things related to news and happenings at the Disneyland Paris Resort, tweeted before 5:0 a.m. EST, or shortly before 11:00 a.m. Disneyland Paris time, about the closures, saying they were related to a “flash thunderstorm” that was “sweeping the Resort.” It seems no outdoor experiences were excluded from the mass closure.

No further details were given in the tweet, and as of the time of this publication, there are no notices or messages describing the closures as still in effect in the parks. There is further no notice about any further attraction operations being impeded because of weather at this time.
