It's happening: Disneyland is temporarily closing its doors because of the coronavirus outbreak. The California-based theme park will shut down starting Saturday through the end of March in order to ward off continued spread of COVID-19.

"While there have been no reported cases of COVID-19 at Disneyland Resort, after carefully reviewing the guidelines of the Governor of California's executive order and in the best interest of our guests and employees, we are proceeding with the closure of Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure, beginning the morning of March 14 through the end of the month," Disney said in a statement. "The Hotels of Disneyland Resort will remain open until Monday, March 16 to give guests the ability to make necessary travel arrangements. Downtown Disney will remain open. We will monitor the ongoing situation and follow the advice and guidance of federal and state officials and health agencies. Disney will continue to pay cast members during this time."

As for guests who will be affected during this time, the company added: "Disneyland Resort will work with guests who wish to change or cancel their visits, and will provide refunds to those who have hotel bookings during this closure period."

This decision follows the closures of Disney's international parks in Hong Kong, Shanghai, and Tokyo. It's only the fourth time in the Anaheim park's history that it has fully suspended its operations.

There is no information at this time as to whether Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, will remain open.
