Disneyland President Speaks Out Against California Theme Park Reopening Guidelines

Today during a press conference California released guidelines for reopening theme parks in the state. This comes after they have been closed since March due to coronavirus. Within hours of the release of the guidelines, Disneyland President Ken Potrock responded strongly and rejected the guidelines. In a statement released online, Potrock said:

“We have proven that we can responsibly open, with science-based health and safety protocols strictly enforced at our theme park properties around the world. Nevertheless, the State of California continues to ignore this fact, instead mandating arbitrary guidelines that it knows are unworkable and that hold us to a standard vastly different from other reopened businesses and state-operated facilities. Together with our labor unions we want to get people back to work, but these State guidelines will keep us shuttered for the foreseeable future, forcing thousands more people out of work, leading to the inevitable closure of small family-owned businesses, and irreparably devestating the Anaheim/Southern California community.”

What will come next is completely unknown at this time. DAPS MAGIC will continue to follow this story and provide updates as they become available. What do you think of the guidelines and Disney’s response? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
