Disneyland has been closed since March, and information regarding a reopening date or timeline haven’t been announced at this time.
Most recently, we reported that the California Governor is in “open-ended” negotiations with theme parks about reopening, but no specifics of a plan had been released. We also shared that a Disneyland representative had spoken out about how conversations we not forthcoming at this time. Now, Anaheim’s Mayor is calling on the Governor of California to visit Anaheim and work towards the reopening of Disneyland.
According to Voice of OC, Anaheim Mayor Harry Sidhu invited California Governor Gavin Newsom to the city in the hopes of working towards theme park reopening guidelines for Disneyland and more.
Sidhu noted during a council meeting that, “Our city faces a $100 million deficit.” He attributed at least part of this deficit to the fact that the Disneyland Resort area has been closed for six months at this point.
Sidhu explained, “I want to be clear, this is not reopening Disneyland for Disney’s sake…it’s for hundreds of small businesses, tens of thousands of jobs. That is why I’m personally inviting Gov. Newsom, who I have praised since day one of this crisis, to come to Anaheim.” He also stated, “I think we can all agree that if there is one company on the planet we can expect to follow the quick guidelines, it’s Disney.”
Sidhu made it clear that the reopening is ultimately out of his hands saying, “That decision is primarily in the hands of the governor and the Orange County Health Care Agency.”
We will be keeping a close eye on any developments with California regulations that apply to Disneyland. So, stay tuned to the latest updates.
