While we’ve been taking a look at Downtown Disney’s restaurants and stores, like a new Star Wars: Trading Post and reopened Sprinkles, we REALLY miss exploring Disneyland and Disney California Adventure.
As California has moved forward with its progress in reopening the state, Disneyland officials have been putting proposed guidelines for the theme parks that include mandatory masks, social distancing, contactless payment, increased sanitation efforts, limited capacity, and enhanced Cast Member training. However, California theme parks haven’t been able to move forward with their plans since there’s no timeline for their possible reopening in the state.
Along with the multiple organizations who have been asking Governor Gavin Newsom to reopen places like Disneyland and Universal Hollywood, Anaheim Mayor Harry Sidhu has also pushed for theme parks’ reopenings to help the economy, job flow, and other affected areas in California.
According to the Orange County Register, Disneyland representatives have decided to speak up about the lack of theme park reopening timelines in California. Disneyland Resort President Ken Potrock stated, “We are disappointed with the state’s lack of progress in providing the industry with guidance and clarity on reopening. We have proven we can operate responsibly, with strict health and safety protocols at our properties around the world and at Downtown Disney in Anaheim.”
Since Disneyland closed back in March, many Cast Members have been unable to return back to the parks or have been furloughed. Potrock has also said that “Tens of thousands of people’s livelihoods depend on our ability to operate and we stand ready and willing to accelerate discussions with the Governor and his team to make ‘real progress’ toward our reopening and getting people back to work.”
Although Governor Newsom has stated that discussion on theme parks would be coming soon, Disneyland has been working with the California Attractions and Parks Association, Legoland California, and cities of Anaheim, Buena Park, and Garden Grove to push towards reopening the parks again. As the situation continues to unfold, we’ll bring you all the details you need to know about Disneyland’s re-opening timeline!
