Since the Coronavirus outbreak took over the world, Disney has closed of its theme parks and resorts, cancelled numerous Disney Cruise Line sailings, closed it’s retail stores, and stopped production on TV and movie sets. When things will open back up is yet to be seen.
When it was just announced last week that the domestic Disney Parks and Resorts would be closed indefinitely due to the Coronavirus, Disney did ensure that it’s employees would be paid until at least April 18, 2020.
