Disneyland Paris, Europe's biggest tourist attraction, said Monday it now expects to reopen on April 2nd, seven weeks later than planned, because of the ongoing Covid-19 crisis.

Disneyland Paris said on Twitter it could not honour the original February 13th target date for reopening the theme park, and that even the April date could only be met if health conditions permitted.


The park, which employs 17,000 people, closed between March 13th and July 15th last year, and has been shut again since October 30th.
