California Attractions and Parks Association Calls Upon Governor Newsom to Reopen Disneyland Resort

With preparations well underway at both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure, the resort is ready to welcome back guests as soon as the government allows it. Just this past Friday, indoor dining resumed at the Downtown Disney District, but there’s still no word on when—or how Disneyland’s theme parks can reopen. Now, trade organizations representing Disney and other neighboring theme parks are putting pressure on the governor to allow these venues to reopen after a six-month hiatus.

A smoky Disney California Adventure entrance could be seen over the past week due to recent wildfires.

According to The Orange County Register, California Attractions and Parks Association issued the following statement:

California’s amusement parks urge the governor to issue amusement park guidelines expeditiously so these vital community attractions can reopen their doors in a responsible manner and get residents back to work.

CAPA represents Disneyland, Universal Studios Hollywood, and a number of other nearby theme parks. The organization has reportedly been working closely with the government on reopening plans for the theme parks, and insists that the theme parks are ready to reopen in a manner that is safe and responsible:

As evidenced by the many open amusement parks in the United States and around the world, visiting an attraction will not look the same as before COVID, but California’s amusement parks are ready to responsibly reopen.

Governor Newsom recently stated that “progress was still being made” on reopening plans for Disneyland Resort and other theme parks: “We’re still working on some details. As soon as we’re at a point where we can make [that] public, we will.”
