Disney is delaying the introduction of its California-based theme parks. )
On Wednesday, the business stated its projected phased opening of both parks at Anaheim for July 17 will be postponed since state officials won’t be devoting theme park reopening guidelines until after July 4.
“Given that the time needed for us to attract tens of thousands of cast members back into work and resume our organization, we’ve got no option but to postpone the temptations of our theme parks and resort hotels until we get approval from officials,” the firm said in a statement.
When the company receives a better sense of if guidelines will be published and what these guidelines will probably likely be, Disney said it will have the ability to announced that a fresh reopening date. Disney will still be launching its shopping centre, Downtown Disney District, on July 9.
The delay of this California parks comes as Disney employees from Florida have petitioned the organization and local police officers to rethink the reopening of Disney World next month.
Since the amount of coronavirus cases surges in Florida, over 8,500 individuals have signed the online petition. It’s uncertain if all signees are now Walt Disney workers or in the event the request is union-backed. There’s not any mention in the request itself of any association with a worker marriage.
Disney has reopened parks in Shanghai and Hong Kong and has plans to reopen its own Paris and Japan-based places.
