Construction Crews Return to Disneyland Resort
As California begins to ease its restrictions due to the Coronavirus pandemic, it was announced on May 8th that the state will be moving into stage 2 of the re-opening phases. That will allow some retail, manufacturing, and supply work to continue.
According to the Orange County Register, some essential staff at the Disneyland Resort will begin to return to work. This includes Imagineers and 3rd party contractors. Looks like crews will be able to resume work on the new Avengers campus and receive deliveries for construction on Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway.
Not all construction has gone back to normal just yet, such as refurbishments to Haunted Mansion, Snow White’s Scary Adventure, and King Arthur Carrousel, but it’s a jumping off point in the right direction hopefully.
There is still no word on when Disneyland will reopen its gates. As of right now, Disneyland Resort has suspended bookings at its three onsite resort hotels: Disneyland Hotel, Paradise Pier Hotel, and the Grand Californian Hotel and Spa for the entire month of June. Bookings open up again effective July 1, 2020.
By extension, dining reservations and Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique experiences are also unavailable before the 1st of July. It would seem that this announcement is timed with California Governor Gavin Newsom releasing details of his re-opening plans yesterday.
What is not clear as of going to print is whether Disney will be completely shuttered until July 1st or whether existing reservations will be honored and become part of a phased re-opening. We’ll be monitoring this story closely and promise to keep you posted.
