For more than six months, California and COVID-19 have kept the keys to the Magic Kingdom. Now, the brass at Walt Disney Co.’s theme parks division have had enough.
Disneyland, the signature Southern California theme park shuttered by the pandemic since March, is demanding California Gov. Gavin Newsom reopen the Anaheim attraction and others across the state.
“We’re ready. It’s time,” Josh D’Amaro, Disney parks chairman said during a virtual news conference Tuesday, as reported by the Orange County Register. Previous reopening plans to reopen July 17 were postponed indefinitely.
