PHOTOS: Abandoned Disneyland Parks During COVID

It felt like it couldn’t happen. The Disneyland theme parks and cruise ships closed. While the Magic Kingdoms in Asia were the first to shutter, by March 2020 all locations and cruise ships in the United States had followed suit. Photos of the Disneyland parks during COVID were… creepy.

Indeed, looking at these photos now, an eerie stillness hangs over what were once some of the Happiest Places on Earth.

Some of the parks reopened with strict social distancing measures, only to close again when the pandemic worsened.

Here are photos of the Disneyland parks all over the world during COVID.
