The theme park said the decision had been made following French President Emmanuel Macron's speech on Tuesday where he laid out a three-stage process to gradually lift lockdown in France in the coming months.
“As a consequence, our parks and hotels will remain closed until February 12th 2021 included,” they wrote in a statement published on Twitter.

“We had hoped to reopen Disneyland Paris during the Christmas holidays,” they wrote, “unfortunately the latest government announcements will not allow us to.”
The French government has planned to lift lockdown completely on January 20th if the number of daily Covid-19 cases stay low, with a set threshold of 5,000 new positives per day.
Before that, more restrictions will be lifted on December 15th if the health situation allows, but theme parks and other places receiving many people at the same time will likely not be allowed to resume their activity.
The company asked those with reservations in the period leading up to the reopening date to turn to their website to change or cancel their reservation.
Disneyland has changed their cancellation policies for this period and cancellations of tickets booked for Disneyland Paris before February 12th will be fully reimbursed.
