Disneyland Resort recently submitted plans for reopening in July and now California is developing guidelines for Disneyland and other theme parks.
According to state officials, Disneyland, Universal Studios Hollywood, Knott’s Berry Farm, Six Flags Magic Mountain, SeaWorld San Diego, Legoland California and other theme parks can reopen during Stage 3 of California’s road map for reopening plan.
“Theme parks are slated to open in Stage 3 if the rate of spread of COVID-19 and hospitalizations remain stable,” according to a statement released by state officials. “The California Department of Public Health will issue detailed guidance with suggested modifications for how to minimize the risk of COVID-19 spread when theme parks reopen.”
Disneyland plans to reopen the theme parks July 17th. Universal Studios Hollywood, Six Flags Magic Mountain, SeaWorld San Diego and Legoland California want to reopen by July 1. Knott’s Berry Farm has not submitted a reopening date as of yet.
The Sacramento-based California Attractions and Parks Association has been working closely with the Newsom administration on reopening plans for California theme parks.
“California Attractions and Parks Association has been in frequent contact with the administration on behalf of the state’s theme, amusement and water parks and attractions since Gov. Newsom first announced the stay at home order,” CAPA executive director Erin Guerrero said. “We will continue to work closely with the administration as our amusement parks and attractions move closer to reopening in a thoughtful and safe manner consistent with federal, state and local guidance.”
