Social distancing markers at some turnstiles & more signage added inside the parks #Disneyland
It is important to note that the social distancing tape and the new health notices were added sometime this week, but are not new today.
Essential Disneyland Cast Members have been hard at work throughout the theme parks’ over 6-month-long closure, ensuring that everything is in order for the original Disney Resort’s eventual reopening.
What Do we Know About Disneyland’s Reopening?
Disney Parks fans around the world are waiting with bated breath to learn when California Governor Gavin Newsom will decide to reopen Disneyland in Anaheim. All other Disney theme parks around the world, including Hong Kong Disneyland (which will reopen for the second time tomorrow), have begun their phased reopening processes.
During Governor Newsom’s last press conference on the subject, he stated that a Disneyland announcement would be coming “very, very shortly.” Since then, however, Walt Disney Company Chairman of Parks, Experiences and Products Josh D’Amaro and Disneyland Resort President Ken Potrock have both appealed to Newsom for reopening guidelines from the state.
“Without those guidelines, we’re quite honestly in limbo. We are ready to open responsibly, it is the time to open responsibly and it’s important to open responsibly.”
No reopening date has been announced by Disney Parks officials or Governor Newsom’s office.
