As the fatal spread of Corona Virus is spreading all over the world. Disney officials announced Friday that they are postponing the closure of Walt Disney World Resort. Also, Disneyland Resort until further notice due to CoronaVirus
A spokesperson of Disney recently said – “While there is still much uncertainty concerning the impacts of COVID-19. The safety and well-being of our guests and employees remain The Walt Disney Company’s top priority. Because of this unprecedented pandemic and in line with direction provided by health experts and government officials. Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort will remain closed until further notice.”
The Walt Disney Company has been paying its cast individuals since the cessation of the parks and considering this continuous and progressively complex emergency, we have settled on the choice to broaden paying hourly stops and resorts cast individuals through April 18.

Matt Hollis who is the president of the Service Trades Council Union sent out a letter to all the Disney Parks heads, stating that the cast members are being left on halt until there is no confirmation by the official about reopening the parks or if they would continue getting paid during an extended closure.
He further says- “That is a huge sense of relief for the thousands of cast members that work under our agreement. It’s a step in the right direction. As it’s Disney continuing to lead the way in the entertainment industry in Central Florida,” Hollis said. “I know that it gives our cast members a sense of relief during these very, very uncertain times.”
“Disney World and the unions, we all share a common goal that we want to see Disney World opened and be open for business. As soon as it is safe to do so and we want to see our cast members return to work as soon as it is safe to do so,” Hollis said. “We’ll continue to work with them to get all of our members up to date as possible.”
