California Governor Gavin Newsom Says Disneyland & Other Parks Won't Be Reopening Soon

Sad news for fans waiting to go back to Disneyland…

California’s Governor Gavin Newsom just said on Wednesday (October 7) that theme parks will not be opening back up in the immediate future.

“There’s disagreements in terms of opening a major theme park. We’re going to let science and data make that determination,” he said in a press conference. “I understand the dialectic and the friction, and the frustration many business leaders have that they want to move forward sectorally, to reopen, but we’re going to be led by a health first framework and we’re going to be stubborn about it.”

“That’s our commitment, that’s our resolve, and while we feel there’s no hurry putting out guidelines, we’re continuing to work with the industry of amusement parks,” Newsom added. “By the way, amusement parks aren’t just Disney, you’ve got all kinds of amusement parks, including smaller parks that are out there on the piers, like down in Santa Cruz, and others that may be impacted.”

“We’re trying to work through all of those things, it’s very complex. These are like small cities, small communities, small towns, but we don’t anticipate in the immediate term any of these larger them parks opening until we see more stability in terms of the data,” he said.

Disney Parks Chairman Josh D’Amaro recently urged California government officials to help theme parks reopen like the rest of the businesses.

Back in August, it was also presumed that Disneyland and other parks were likely not to reopen until 2020 under new reopening guidelines set forth by Governor Newsom.
