Due to the continuing health crisis in Europe, we will have to wait a little longer before we can have fun with Mickey.
Disneyland Paris, the first private tourist destination in Europe, has postponed its reopening date to April 2, according to a statement published Monday on its Twitter account.
Given the health situation, Disneyland Paris will not open on February 13 as previously announced.

"Disneyland Paris will not open on February 13 as previously announced," said the amusement park.
The reopening on April 2 will take place "if conditions allow".
This date is however "likely to change", according to the park.
Extensive social plan
After ceasing its activity between March 13 and July 15, Disneyland Paris, which employs 17,000 people, has been closed again since October 30.
The management does not envisage a return of activity to normal, equivalent to 2019, before 2022, a union source indicated in December.
Globally, the Disney group plans to cut 32,000 jobs in its activities related to the amusement park by the end of the first half of 2021, including 28,000 in the United States, due to the impact of the epidemic.
