Disneyland has been closed for over six months due to the coronavirus pandemic, and there’s still no reopening date or plan.
And there’s been mounting pressure from Disney officials, California legislators, trade associations, and coalition of Anaheim, Buena Park and Garden Grove city leaders and the Anaheim Chamber of Commerce for Governor Newsom to issue theme park reopening guidelines that these locations need to properly reopen.
And earlier today, it seemed as though California Governer Gavin Newsom was going to issue theme park regulations this week, but now, according to The Orange County Register, The California Attractions and Parks Association, which includes Disneyland, asked state officials NOT to finalize theme park reopening plans.
Why? They want state officials to listen to theme park operators before making any official guidelines.
“We ask the governor not to finalize guidance for amusement parks before engaging the industry in a more earnest manner, listening to park operators’ expertise and collaborating with the industry on a plan that will allow for amusement parks to reopen responsibly while still keeping the health and safety of park employees and guests a top priority,” CAPA executive director Erin Guerrero said in a statement.
In addition to Disneyland, CAPA represents Universal Studios, Knott’s Berry Farm, Six Flags Magic Mountain, SeaWorld San Diego, Legoland California, and more.
It’s still yet to be seen whether or not California will go ahead and release their guidelines anyway, but the second we know anything about Disneyland’s reopening, we will fill you in!
