Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald, Daisy, Pluto, Walt Disney World President Josh D’Amaro and numerous other characters waved goodbye as The Magic Kingdom closed at 10 p.m. tonight. This weekend has been especially emotional for Disney’s College Program participants as they were suddenly laid off and told to go home to self-quarantine.
The Walt Disney World Resort was the last of the Disney theme parks to close worldwide during this virus outbreak. Disneyland closed days ago and had a similar closing ceremony.
