    And its only the fourth time in its history that it's had to close.

    The closure of Disneyland follows the closure of Disney's other parks in Hong Kong, Tokyo, and Shanghai.

    As of right now, the Paris and Orlando parks remain open.

    Obviously, this is all for the best and an important move to help stop the spread of coronavirus.
