Disneyland first announced the reopening plans for their theme parks in early June, only to be forced to delay those plans indefinitely. Since then, there has been no update provided as to when we can expect the Happiest Place on Earth to welcome Guests back.
According to reports, however, the major theme parks in California, including Disneyland and Universal Studios, are among the current topics of discussion amongst state officials.
While discussions are ongoing in regards for how these parks can resume operations safely, at this time, they are not permitted to reopen, according to Orange County Register.
Currently, theme parks are permitted to open in Phase Three of California’s reopening plans. Since Governor Newsom had announced the state’s phases, the state has seemed to take a more meticulous county-by-county approach in allowing businesses to reopen. Currently, all indoor dining and bars must be closed in Orange County, where Disneyland resides.
Theme parks are awaiting state guidelines for how to safely reopen, which will signal a green light of sorts to move forward once again with reopening plans. Until then, the parks have had to make do with what they are able to operate. Downtown Disney began its phased reopening on July 9th with shopping and outdoor dining available. Universal Hollywood reopened its shopping and dining district, CityWalk, in June.
Orange County Register also included in their report the news that one of the state’s theme parks, California’s Great America in Santa Clara, had announced that it will remain closed for the rest of 2020.
