Orange County health officer thinks Disneyland won’t open until summer of 2021


It’s been a solemn news week for those waiting to find out when Disneyland Resort will reopen. The State of California is planning on waiting for conditions to reach Tier 4 before theme parks can reopen. However, an Orange County health official believes Disneyland won’t be able to open until next summer under this criteria.

New information pertaining to the expectation for California’s theme parks was given by Dr. Mark Ghaly, secretary of the state Health and Human Services Agency. All theme parks are going to be required to implement an advanced ticket sale system with a limited park capacity of 25 percent.

According to Ghaly, the state’s public health officials are concerned about tourists staying at hotels and eating at restaurants near theme parks, which can spread the virus.

Orange County health officer Dr. Clayton Chau said he doesn’t expect OC to reach the Yellow Tier anytime soon.

Personally I think we can look forward to a yellow tier by next summer.

The President of Disneyland Resort, also issued the following statement earlier today.

It’ll take some time before we see the gates reopen for California’s theme parks. We’ll keep our fans updated when more information becomes available regarding the future of Disneyland Resort.
