Reopening Plans Will Be Released “When We’re Ready” Says California Official

It looks like the state of California is truly in “no hurry” to reopen theme parks. When the topic of theme park reopening plans came up in a press conference this morning, California Health and Human Services Secretary Mark Ghaly said “I like to say, ‘It will come out when we’re ready.’”

Though the state is in no hurry, change is still happening. Just last week, Governor Gavin Newsom sent a team to Walt Disney World Resort to observe their COVID-19 protocol. This week, state officials plan to visit local theme parks to begin to develop guidance for these reopenings.

Though they have not released any of their findings, they have said that they are excited to compile this information and look critically at how they can safely reopen in-state theme parks. Under Governor Gavin Newsom’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy, most other sectors of the economy were given direction on when they could reopen. Notably, theme parks were left out of this blueprint. It has left guests and employees confused as the parks remain indefinitely.

Today marks seven months since the Disneyland Resort closed to the public and what we originally thought would be a two-week closure and stretched far beyond that. I hope that we will see movement in the direction of reopening soon as Walt Disney World has been operating safely since July.

What do you think of the current lack of reopening plans? Do you think we’ll see development soon? Be sure to connect with us on Twitter and Facebook to let us know what you think!
