With the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on the rise, the Governor of California has issued a statewide order mandating that citizens must stay at home, with few exceptions, “until further notice.”

Deadline‘s Denise Petski reported on Governor Gavin Newsom’s order, which will keep open “essential” businesses, including:

  • Gas stations
  • Pharmacies
  • Grocery stores, farmers markets, food banks, convenience stores, take-out and delivery restaurants
  • Banks
  • Laundromats/laundry services
  • Essential state and local government functions, including law enforcement and offices that provide government programs and services

Included in Petski’s list of businesses that will be shuttered while this order is in effect was “entertainment venues” and “public events and gatherings,” which may include the Disneyland Resort. As of the writing of this article, the resort has not announced any change to its closure schedule through March 31st, but this order may very well change that. Yesterday, we reported that the Disneyland Resort hotels were offering a deal beginning April 19th, which may suggest the resort’s more recent planned reopening date. While nothing has been confirmed, this order may change that.

Welp, I guess it’ll never reopen

Disney has the finances to handle complete closure, as well as delays on the construction of the new Avengers land taking the place of A Bug’s Land in Disney’s California Adventure. They should order a complete closure of the park for all guests and personnel (save for essential personnel like security and maintenance crews) until such time that the Governor of California lifts the stay-at-home order. Until then, perhaps potential parkgoers could be entertained with a sort of “Virtual Disneyland Experience” that they can participate in at home.
