Closing parks

This last week the Disney company made the decision to close the Shanghai and Hong Kong Disneyland resorts in an attempt the slow the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus. Unfortunately this is happening as the Lunar New Year holiday begins, affecting one of the busiest times for the resorts.

Although the Disney company only owns 43% of the Shanghai Disneyland resort, their stock still dropped 3%. As of this post it’s unknown how long the parks will remain closed.
