Governor Gavin Newsom has given us a slight update as to when theme parks in California will be allowed to reopen, and if you're hoping for Disneyland to reopen soon...it's not leaning in your favor. 

According to KTLA, the governor spoke on working with the industry to roll out guidelines for reopening but feels "there's no hurry." 

"It's very complex. They are like small cities, small communities, small towns," Newsom said on Wednesday. "We don't anticipate in the immediate term any of these larger theme parks opening until we see more stability in terms of the data." 

"We're going to be led by a health-first framework and ... we're going to be stubborn about it. That's our commitment." 

Behind the scenes, negotiations have been happening between State officials and direct operators of theme parks, the organization that represents the sector, and labor partners that represent park employees, says California Health and Human Services Secretary Dr. Mark Ghaly via KTLA. Ghaly ensures that theme parks remain "a high priority for the administration." 

Do you feel like it's time to reopen theme parks like Disneyland, or is it still too soon?
