ANAHEIM, Calif. (KION) Disneyland Resort announced that the reopening of Disneyland and Disney California Adventure as the company waits for government approval.
The delay was announced Wednesday in a statement, according to the CBS affiliate in Los Angeles.
“The State of California has now indicated that it will not issue theme park reopening guidelines until sometime after July 4. Given the time required for us to bring thousands of cast members back to work and restart our business, we have no choice but to delay the reopening of our theme parks and resort hotels until we receive approval from government officials. Once we have a clearer understanding of when guidelines will be released, we expect to be able to communicate a reopening date,” the statement said.
Downtown Disney is still scheduled to reopen on July 9.
Disneyland and Disney California Adventure were originally expected to reopen as soon as July 17. Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa and Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel were expected to reopen July 23.
Both parks have been closed since mid-March when Stay at Home orders were issued in California.
