"We mourn those lost to the horrific attacks in Paris," says Euro Disney president Tom Wolber.

Disneyland Paris said on Sunday that its two theme parks near the French capital will remain closed through Tuesday after the attacks on Friday night that killed 129 people, based on latest estimates.

On Saturday, the company had said it wouldn't open for the day. On Sunday, its website featured a quote from Euro Disney president Tom Wolber, saying: "We mourn those lost to the horrific attacks in Paris. We pray for the injured and we hold them all in our hearts. As part of France's three-day national mourning period, Disneyland Paris will remain closed through Tuesday 17 November 2015 (included)."

Euro Disney is the operator of Disneyland Paris. The Walt Disney Co. is its largest shareholder with a 40 percent stake.

The company operates two attractions in Marne-la-Vallee, about 20 miles east of the center of Paris. Disneyland Paris, which opened in 1992, is the most visited theme park in all of France and Europe. A second theme park, Walt Disney Studios Park, opened in 2002.

For the 12 months through Sept. 30, the theme parks had 14.8 million visitors.
