NEWS: Theme Park Guidelines Postponed Following Pushback in California

The Disneyland Resort and the state of California have been at a bit of an impasse over the past few weeks as Disneyland and Disney California Adventure are the only Disney theme parks in the world that remain closed due to the global health crisis.

The reopening plan for the resort relies on the release of guidelines from the California Government and Disney has been pushing for this guidance. Now, it looks like it may be a little longer before the guidelines are released.

According to the Orange County Register, Governor Newsom’s administration has opted to postpone the release of guidelines for Disneyland and other theme parks that were supposed to come out this week.

This comes after theme park officials asked the state NOT to finalize the guidelines yesterday before listening to theme park operators in a “more earnest manner.” Shortly after, Disney chairman Bob Iger stepped down from California’s Economic Recovery Task Force.

California’s health and human services director, Dr. Mark Ghaly, put out a statement saying, “Given the size and operational complexities of these unique sectors, we are seeking additional input from health, workforce, and business stakeholders to finalize this important framework — all leading with science and safety.”
