California State Officials Reviewing How and When to Reopen Disneyland Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood

Last updated:

With theme parks in Florida open, California residents are eager to see theme parks reopen once it is safe enough to do so. In a new report by the The Orange County Register, California state officials are reviewing how and when to reopen parks such as Disneyland Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood.

In a statement to the OCR, a spokesperson for California Health and Human Services indicated that while theme parks are still not permitted to open in California, they are reviewing health data to determine when and how theme parks “may consider reopening at lower risk to staff and visitors.”

Universal Studios Hollywood CityWalk

Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure were set to reopen on July 17 before plans for the reopening were delayed indefinitely. Currently, only the Downtown Disney District shopping and dining complex is open, with new health and safety guidelines in place. Similarly, only Universal CityWalk Hollywood is open at Universal Studios Hollywood.

Theme parks can reopen in California during Stage 3 of the four-stage roadmap as a “higher-risk” business, along with salons and gyms.

California residents are *not* eager for parks to open. We are eager for the state and country to make wise choices to protect lives and end the pandemic.

Sorry, you are WRONG Vivi! Sane CA residents are VERY eager for people to be able to make their own choices! EVERY day you step into your car you are risking your life (are more than you are of dying of covid)! Still, you have that choice. In fact, you have a much higher risk of dying if you leave your house at all so why not stay home all the time. A little bit of wisdom goes a far way!!!
