Aerial Video of Empty Walt Disney World Parks After Closing Over Coronavirus Concerns

With the number of positive cases in Florida currently reaching more than 130 as of Sunday evening (March 15), and three deaths from COVID-19 in Florida, we understand the need to close something as popular as the Walt Disney World Parks with growing Coronavirus concerns.

 

A local television station – WESH 2, serves the Orlando, FL area and captured aerial footage of the almost eerie, and empty Walt Disney World Parks.

Walt Disney World Resort Operations are reporting:

In an abundance of caution and in the best interest of our Guests and Cast Members, we have closed the theme parks and water parks at Walt Disney World Resort from March 16 through March 31, 2020.

Disney owned-and-operated hotels at Walt Disney World Resort and Disney’s Vero Beach Resort will close beginning at 5:00 PM on Friday, March 20 through the end of the month. This will give Guests the ability to make other arrangements.

At Disney Springs, we will be closing all Disney owned-and-operated locations beginning Tuesday, March 17 through the end of the month. Select restaurants and retail locations at Disney Springs may remain open and Guests should call the location they wish to visit for operating hours.

The Walt Disney Company will pay its Cast Members during this closure period.

We will continue to stay in close contact with appropriate officials and health experts.

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 15 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
