RUMOR: Governor Newsom and Josh D’Amaro Filming Disneyland Reopening Announcement This Monday

We’ve been spending lots of time recently in Downtown Disney District, and during our trips there, we like to take a peek into the Disneyland Resort theme parks. On our latest trip, we noticed what seemed like many management Cast Members scattered around both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure. Even the Disney Parks, Experiences and Products Chairman, Josh D’Amaro, was spotted visiting the theme parks. Now, a rumor has indicated that filming may reportedly be taking place at the parks featuring California Governor Gavin Newsom and D’Amaro himself.

Recording for the rumored announcement is set to take place Monday, September 21.

While a reopening date has not yet been set, Anaheim has been pushing Governor Newsom to reopen the California theme parks. The governor has indicated that discussions have been taking place, and that progress is being made on establishing guidelines and setting reopening time frames for theme parks. Josh D’Amaro has previously stated that Disney is “ready” to reopen the parks of Disneyland Resort as soon as California guidelines allow.

An increased number of security guards were stationed around the parks this week.

Recording a reopening announcement is a logical step in luring guests back to the parks. If this rumor is to be true, we may well be seeing a reopening announcement for the Disneyland Resort theme parks very soon.

  1. Newsom could care less about opening up Disneyland, he just got nervous when the headlines read “Disneyland moving to Texas”. He saw millions of tax dollars leaving the state, like it’s citizens are.
    As long as they don’t require wearing masks I’ll go. Just imagine how bad it would be having to wear a mask on hot days, constantly having to touch it and pull it down every time you want to get a drink or eat a frozen banana. And sweating inside it all day, how unsanitary.

    • That article was satire, buddy.

      And this whole article aged terrible, as they’ve laid of 28,000 workers 😬

  2. Looking Forward to the announcement 😀
    With Disney Parks open already there should not be too much more to get ready.
    I Know we are all ready to get back for the magic.
    But please everyone we may not all agree
    What we have to do to keep everyone safe.
    But let’s show the world what we are capable of. Bring your smiles , Patience & courtesy.

  3. I think it should open as all of the other parks connected to Disney are open. I understand there’s a virus, but I know their economy can’t handle being closed much longer. Many will be laid off as it is. We just need to make sure to follow all rules, and wear a face mask.

  4. I wanted to say as a Union Committer Lead with Unite Local 11 . There is 12 remaining (The big ones) Unions of the 32 Unions at the Resort. We are many of us now at the end of the first round of EDD UI. Even thought California has an automatic 13 weeks extension and then after that the Federal program kicks in. Not all Cast members are living the high life. Me for example am not making the $450 weekly payment . I was was before Covid 19 on FMLA for random illnesses. I have an autoimmune disease and Asthma and Diabetes. So I even though listed as full time status, would have to call out sometimes. So when through the State EDD ended up with reduced earnings . What that means is I get only $246 . So when the Additional $600 expired (I saved up for emergency) like the other 30 thousand CM’s out work are definitely not living the rumored high life. Now as I mentioned before we all want to go back to work(We do many of us) but safely. But it’s not like as easy as you think turning on a switch. There is mandatory retraining, the heavy amount of CM’s that are never coming back(Found new jobs) I minimum of at least up to 1-2 months of retraining. Not to mention whos going to train the trainers (I’m a trainer)? Worker retention for those that can not come back because of health reasons. Break rooms and social distancing is a huge problem, proper PPE for hotel workers. Electrostatic cleaning and UV cleaning. The fact that Disneyland Hotels are going to open at min staffing at 10% of the CM’s. That leaves out a lot of the workforce. Also 6 month’s has gone by. So all contracts with for example the Food outside venders needs new negotiations and financial contracts. Then there is testing all the 12 big Unions want mandatory testing daily for CM’s. Disney says its to expensive. However there is now the new 15 minute test that only cost $5.00 and was approve by the FDA so that maybe a game changer. So yes we need new State guidelines. But thats all they are nothing more. Then once that goes forward negotiation’s will be able to start. I understand everyone wants to go back to work. But the Unions will stand firm to keep the park closed unless we all see on the same page only time will tell. Thank you for your thoughtful reply’s and support of us Cast members.

  5. Ah what a week makes… 28,000 Disney Park employees laid off. 67% of the work force is part time.
    Disney has used the local colleges as defacto employment service so as to not pay full time wages. That pool has dried up with COVID.
    I had 4 friends with “55” rings, they will be rolling in their graves.
    The hand writing was on the wall as far back as the 25th Anniversary. I left for far better opportunities.
