Disneyland is Closing Down for Only the Fourth Time Ever!

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at UIC chapter.

As if coronavirus hasn’t messed with everyone’s lives enough, the virus has now influenced the happiest place on Earth.

Many places that usually draw large crowds are shutting down due to the virus such as amusement parks, sporting venues, concert venues and even colleges. Even Disneyland is no exception.

On Thursday, Disney released a statement saying that Disneyland would close starting March 14 until the end of the month. This is the first time that the park has been forced to close since 9/11. It also is only its fourth time that it’s had to close ever!
