UPDATE: California State Officials Announce That Fully Vaccinated Out-of-State Visitors Are Welcome In Theme Parks

Early today we reported that Disneyland had not changed their policy regarding admission of out-of-state guests.

Now a spokesperson for the California Department of Public Health has confirmed to InPark Magazine that “fully vaccinated people from out of state are now permitted to participate in activities restricted to in-state visitors.”

According to Scott Gustin, this announcement from the CDPH does include theme parks. However, both Disneyland and Universal Studios Hollywood’s policies regarding this remains unchanged as of now.

It remains to be seen if Disneyland or Universal Studios Hollywood will update their policies to match the California Department of Public Health, and allow out-of-state guests to return to the parks. Universal Studios Hollywood reopened to California residents on April 16th. Disneyland is set to reopen on April 30th.

Definitely interesting that neither Disneyland nor Universal Studios Hollywood nor Six Flags Magic Mountain has updated their policy, and Six Flags is the only one that doesn’t cite the former state policy as the reason. Knott’s doesn’t mention any “California residents only” restriction at all, but they don’t open until May.

Could be that they want to dip their proverbial toes into the water first and see what local demand will be before opening up to tourists.
