Disneyland, CA Theme Parks Prepare For State Visits
Is Disneyland Ready for the CA State Agencies’ Visit?
I can picture it now; like something out of a modern-day Johnny Tremain movie.
“The state agencies are coming! The state agencies are coming!”
And, in this version, our favorite SoCal Disney reporter, Brady MacDonald, serves as our would-be our modern Paul Revere; standing out in front of Disneyland shouting the news.
State Agencies to Visit Socal Theme Parks Including Disneyland
Firstly, late Monday MacDonald posted on The OCR, “Disneyland, Disney California Adventure, Universal Studios Hollywood, Knott’s Berry Farm, Six Flags Magic Mountain, SeaWorld San Diego, Legoland California and other California theme parks closed in mid-March amid the COVID-19 pandemic and remain shuttered while they await reopening guidelines from the state.”
However, the late development seemed to spell “soon” for the currently closed theme parks.
State health, safety, business, and economic development agencies plan to tour California theme parks this week to help inform the development of reopening guidelines by Gov. Gavin Newsom and his administration.
“We have planned visits to theme parks in-state this week in collaboration with theme park operators who requested the exchange of information and ideas,” according to California Health and Human Services Agency spokesperson Kate Folmar. “These visits will help inform our pending theme park guidance.”
The delegation will include the California Department of Public Health, California Division of Occupational Safety and Health, and the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development, according to Folmar.
California Governor Talks Disneyland
Secondly, earlier today nearly everyone posted about CA Governor Gavin Newsom’s press conference:
Meanwhile, later in the afternoon, MacDonald added that the California Attractions and Parks Association responded to the news:
“It was heartening to hear Gov. Newsom share that his administration is ready to work with the theme park industry,” Guerrero said in a statement.
“We applaud the governor for accepting our invitation to visit California’s iconic parks and we are eager to work together so theme parks can reopen responsibly and soon. Doing so will allow tens of thousands of people to get back to work and provide a much-needed jump start for local and state economies that have been decimated by the shutdown.”
Finally, keep it here folks. No doubt there’s much more learn about Disneyland’s prospects.
