There Goes Disney World, Too

Like I wrote this afternoon, inevitable. Statement from Disney:

In an abundance of caution and in the best interest of our guests and employees, we are proceeding with the closure of our theme parks at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida and Disneyland Paris Resort, beginning at the close of business on Sunday, March 15, through the end of the month.

Disney Cruise Line will suspend all new departures beginning Saturday, March 14, through the end of the month.

The Walt Disney Company will pay its cast members during that closure period.

I keep posting about sports and theme parks not because they’re important in the grand scheme of things, but because these closures and cancellations show how serious this has gotten, and how seriously we should all take it.
