I just read on another site, that Zootopia ranks 2nd in Disney Animated Films
that have hit the $1 Billion+ mark, world wide.

Guess what's number 1 and 3? Of course, it's Frozen and
(for now, till it probably passes Zootopia) Frozen II, I read. :shockr:

Be advised the park is shut due to the virus outbreak:

In response to the prevention and control of the disease outbreak and in order to ensure the health and safety of our guests and Cast, Shanghai Disney Resort is temporarily closing Shanghai Disneyland, Disneytown including Walt Disney Grand Theatre and Wishing Star Park, starting January 25, 2020. We will continue to carefully monitor the situation and be in close contact with the local government, and we will announce the reopening date upon confirmation.
Shanghai Disney Resort will assist in the refund for guests who have purchased tickets for admission to Shanghai Disneyland, have booked a resort hotel, or have booked tickets for Beauty and the Beast Mandarin Production through the original ticket purchase channel, and we will introduce the detailed procedure and guidelines via the resort’s official platforms as soon as possible.
We wish our guests a healthy and happy Spring Festival!

It could be a case of just being closed for the Chinese New Year when they would have been swamped with people and reopening after that but depending on how this epidemic unfolds over the coming days and weeks, there's a chance it could also become longer.

per CNN, they *are* listing it as a "temporary closure".. but you KNOW it's a pretty big deal if they are shutting down over Lunar New Year Holidays:

(also shutting down: Forbidden City, the Pagoda Forest, the famous tombs, the most touristy part of the Great Wall, and even McDonalds announced they are suspending operations in 5 cities in China).

this is some scary stuff, and I hope they are able to contain the outbreak and find a treatment solution for those infected

China is scary. I really hope they get this under control quickly and can reopen all affected locations.

I wonder if Hong Kong & Shanghai are going to hurt operations at the other parks.

Simple answer, yes. When any part of the company starts to hurt, the other parts that are making money see cuts in an attempt to balance it out. No telling what they would be though.

They are going to feel this on the bottom line for sure, especially with HK getting the redo. Expect to see them push for more Gov't goodies there.

According to an article on the OC Register (Link), Disney's CFO is assuming both Shanghai Disneyland and Hong Kong Disneyland will be closed for 2 months, resulting in a $175 million loss.

Disney assumes coronavirus outbreak could keep Shanghai and Hong Kong theme parks closed for two months

Shanghai Disneyland and Hong Kong Disneyland will remain closed indefinitely amid the coronavirus outbreak that has killed hundreds, infected thousands and restricted millions from traveling.

Disney assumes the coronavirus outbreak in China that has forced the temporary closure of Shanghai Disneyland and Hong Kong Disneyland could keep the two Asian theme parks closed for at least two months.

The temporary closure of Shanghai Disneyland and Hong Kong Disneyland due to China’s coronavirus outbreak could result in a $175 million loss in Disney’s upcoming second quarter, Disney chief financial officer Christine McCarthy said. The loss assumes the closure of both parks for two months, McCarthy said.

“The recent closure of our parks in both Shanghai and Hong Kong due to the ongoing coronavirus situation will negatively impact second quarter and full year results,” McCarthy said during the company’s latest earnings call. “The precise magnitude of the financial impact is highly dependent on the duration of the closures and how quickly we can resume normal operations.”

Shanghai Disneyland and Hong Kong Disneyland will remain closed indefinitely amid the coronavirus outbreak that has killed hundreds, infected thousands and restricted millions from traveling. The closure of the two Disney theme parks came at the beginning of the week-long Lunar New Year holiday, one of the busiest travel seasons of the year in China.

“At Shanghai Disney Resort, we currently estimate the closure of the park could have an adverse impact on second quarter operating income of approximately $135 million assuming the park is closed for two months during Q2,” McCarthy said.

Hong Kong Disneyland had already seen a significant drop in theme park attendance and hotel bookings due to the ongoing protests in the city.

“At Hong Kong Disneyland, we currently estimate the closure of the park could have an additional adverse impact on operating income of about $40 million for the second quarter,” McCarthy said. “Again, this assumes that the resort is closed for two months.”

Coronavirus symptoms include fever, coughing and difficulty breathing. Coronavirus cases have been confirmed in more than two dozen countries outside mainland China. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has identified at least 11 coronavirus cases in the United States, including in California.

The coronavirus outbreak hasn’t had an impact on visitation at Disney’s U.S. theme park, McCarthy said. Disney’s U.S. parks don’t draw a significant amount of visitors from Asia, McCarthy said. Approximately 1 in 5 visitors to Disney’s domestic parks come from international markets, McCarthy said.
