Anaheim, Calif. — Disneyland Resort has delayed the opening of its theme parks and resort hotels in Anaheim based on the State of California’s announcement that it will not issue theme park reopening guidelines until sometime after July 4. The company plans to announce a revised reopening date once government officials approve a phased reopening.
Downtown Disney District, an outdoor shopping center at the resort, will reopen in July with health and safety protocols in place for employees and guests. This opening was approved with the restaurants and retail openings throughout California. Additionally, Disney and The Master Services Union, which represents retail employees at Downtown Disney District, reached an agreement for members to return to work at this location.
Disney will negotiate agreements with its unions and agree to enhanced safety protocols that will allow the company to responsibly reopen Disneyland, the company says.
