Disneyland and Other California Theme Parks Considering Legal Action to Reopen

In a press conference where Erin Guerrero, the executive director of the Californian Attractions and Parks Association, mostly spoke it was let known that the major California theme parks are considering legal action with the recent guidelines announced.  Their hope is that there can be an ongoing conversation that would enable the parks to reopen sooner than predicted based on the guidelines.  Executives like Ken Potrock, President of Disneyland expressed they are considering it and not going to it yet.  The press conference did have senior executives from Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm, Universal Studios Hollywood, and Legoland.  All of them, not just Disneyland, expressed how remaining closed would greatly affect their companies which employ thousands of people each.

The Reuters article with more details is here.

As pointed out in the article and from personal experience, theme parks have been open in other locations throughout the country with no connected COVID cases.  Knott’s Berry Farm and Legoland California have been open in a non-theme park function with no connected cases either.  As it was said, it will be something to consider as the companies are hopeful for ongoing talks or if it comes to a legal action against the state.

  1. But Indian casinos are open. All indoors. People with masks off while smoking and eating; not segregated. All the machines continually touched all day. I have been to our local casino over 10 times and rarely seen cleaning of machines over visits of 4-6 hours each visit. I know Disney will do more, as they have always been know for keeping their parks clean.

    1. I am not sure what the “but” is referring to. I will say I have visited Walt Disney World and there are more precautions taking place than apparently what you have observed in casinos. There are also cast members that have done their best to enforce that people are spaced out and that they are not as near people if they are eating and drinking with their masks off. I would suggest that if you don’t feel safe in casinos currently it’s not best to visit them at this time.
