“Eerie” footage inside Disneyland Paris shows the resort almost empty amid the coronavirus outbreak.

Vince Nichols, from Hertfordshire, shared a video to Twitter from the park’s official American frontier-themed hotel Hotel Cheyenne, which appears virtually deserted.

“It was like a Wild West movie, I expected some tumbleweeds to roll on by,” Mr Nichols told the PA news agency.

“We had a walk around the complex and there were literally only three other guests walking about. It was eerie.”

Disneyland Paris announced on Friday that the park is closing its doors from Sunday until the end of March, though its hotels will remain open.

“Although there haven’t been any parades or the Illuminations show, we have been able to go on more rides, as the queues have been shorter,” he said.

“The magic is still here. The cast members are all being amazing to make everything magical.”

“If you hold a reservation at a Disney Hotel for arrivals until June 1, 2020, we have waived all modification and cancellation fees until April 15.

“We will continue to stay in close contact with appropriate officials and health experts.”
