Disneyland is not opening on July 17th
Not entirely unexpected - but certainly a bummer
Disney did not give a new reopening date for the Disneyland resort.
The company said that the State of California had indicated it would not issue theme park reopening guidelines “until sometime after July 4,” according to a statement. “Given the time required for us to bring thousands of cast members back to work and restart our business, we have no choice but to delay the reopening of our theme parks and resort hotels until we receive approval from government officials.”
Disney still must negotiate with its unions before the parks can be reopened. The company said it has had “positive discussions” and has signed agreements with 20 union affiliates.
“Once we have a clearer understanding of when guidelines will be released, we expect to be able to communicate a reopening date,” the statement said.
