DISNEYLAND PARIS has had to cancel its plans for a Christmas reopening, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The theme park will now stay closed until February 12, 2021.

A statement from the park said: "While we were hoping to be able to reopen during the Christmas holiday season, the latest government measures announced for France do not allow us to deliver the Disneyland Paris experience.

"Therefore the destination will remain closed until 12 February 2021.

"We look forward to welcoming you upon our reopening. In the meantime, if you have a booking with us during the period we are closed, please check here for our latest commercial conditions.

"We thank you for your continued loyalty and understanding."

Customers with bookings between now and February are asked to visit the Disneyland Paris website, to rebook their trip.

Disneyland Paris closed its doorson October 29 due to Covid for the second time this year.

The French theme park was first forced to close in March, as France faced soaring cases of coronavirus.

It  reopened its doors on July 15 with a number of Covid-safe guidelines.

France will start easing its COVID-19 lockdown this weekend so that by Christmas, shops, theatres and cinemas will reopen and people will be able to spend the holiday with their families, President Emmanuel Macron said yesterday.

In a televised address to the nation, Macron said the worst of the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic in France was over.

However, restaurants, cafes and bars would have to stay shut until January 20, to avoid triggering a third wave.
