    Is it? I thought only the Marvel stuff is well underway and for the rest of the expansion it is just the land clearance? I would expect construction on the rest of WDS expansion to be delayed for several years.

    Marvel is underway and clearance for the lake and Frozen area has started.

    Rumour was that Star Wars was potentially canned even before Covid.

    Closing for 4 weeks to open for the next 4 busy Xmas weeks and then shut for another 3 to 4 weeks in Jan won't give off a very good message.

    Doesn't suggest they are putting safety first if they do that. It just says they don't want to miss out on that incredibly lucrative 4 weeks in December.

    Either stay open throughout or don't open at all.

    The closure until Feb is more linked to the fact the guest numbers have been low. They must have calculated that during the quiet Jan/Feb period that they would be even worse off so have decided to close for that long even if the lockdown has been lifted.

    If conditions in France allow, they will reopen for Christmas which is always popular. If the lockdown is still in place in December then they won’t.

    they are only looking to open for the busy two week Christmas holiday period. It’s two weeks not 3-4. I expect if the park was allowed to open for Covid reasons for the Christmas fortnight there is no reason they couldn’t stay open for January/February. But that is their quietist time of year so they would know if the number of bookings makes it financially viable.

    Basically they are closing now due to Covid. If the Covid rules improve they will open for Christmas.
    Due to low guest numbers, cold weather and Covid travel restrictions it is likely not financially worthwhile to be open in January.
