Disneyland Says It's Ready To Reopen

August 27, 2020



Theme parks in California have had enough of being shut down, and say they're ready to reopen. 

CBS Los Angeles reports that executives from Disney, Universal, and Seaworld met at a round table to show Governor Newsom that they're ready to reopen with guidelines that keep the public safe amid the coronavirus pandemic. They also expressed their concern for the hundreds of thousands of people out of work who typically run park operations. 

Theme parks in Florida have been reopened for several months now on a limited basis with safety guidelines in place, like online reservations, enforced social distancing, and masks being some requirements. And now that Orange County is off of California's COVID watch list, parks are hoping to reopen. 

Currently, Disneyland remains the only theme park completely shut down. Universal Hollywood and Knott's Berry Farm are open for dining and shopping, and Seaworld will follow their lead on Friday.
