Disney World Hits a Huge Pandemic Milestone (It’s Great for Your Vacation)

Disney World faced some dark times in the early days of the Covid pandemic. The entire massive resort, consisting of four theme parks, two water parks, the Disney Springs shopping area, and countless hotels, fully closed their doors in March 2020.

It was a bleak time that led to tens of thousands of what Walt Disney (DIS) – Get Walt Disney Company Report calls “cast members” (employees) being laid off. Disney rarely closes its Florida theme parks and the closures generally happen due to weather. During those brief closures, its hotels keep running, trying to still offer as much fun as possible for guests.
