In spite of the fact that Disneyland won’t return soon, Disney fans in California actually have some reason to celebrate. On Friday, Disney declared it would return a segment of its California Adventure’s shopping and eating region.
Buena Vista Street in Disney’s California Adventure in Anaheim will return for outside eating and shopping in November. Visitors will be relied upon to wear covers, have their temperatures taken before entering and practice social distancing. Capacity limits will likewise be set up. No rides will be open.
Downtown Disney, the theme park’s shopping and eating area that is outside of the two parks has been open since July, with coronavirus limitations set up.
The news comes the exact week Gov. Gavin Newsom revealed its limitations for amusement parks resuming.
As indicated by the new state guide, bigger theme parks are not permitted to open until the province in which it is found has arrived at level “yellow,” or the least degree of transmission hazard for coronavirus.
Disneyland is situated in Orange County.
The park’s management has hit back at Newsom. Ken Potrock, leader of Disneyland Resort, contended contrary to the new rules, calling them “arbitrary” in an announcement imparted to FOX Business.
“We have proven that we can responsibly reopen, with science-based health and safety protocols strictly enforced at our theme park properties around the world. Nevertheless, the State of California continues to ignore this fact, instead mandating arbitrary guidelines that it knows are unworkable and that hold us to a standard vastly different from other reopened businesses and state-operated facilities. Together with our labor unions we want to get people back to work, but these State guidelines will keep us shuttered for the foreseeable future, forcing thousands more people out of work, leading to the inevitable closure of small family-owned businesses, and irreparably devastating the Anaheim/Southern California community,” the announcement read.
