So many people have been waiting for a status regarding the possible reopening of the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim. Today I received this press release and wanted to share it with you. Very disappointing indeed. Our hearts go out to everyone impacted by this latest update.
STATEMENT FROM KEN POTROCK, PRESIDENT, DISNEYLAND RESORT
We have proven that we can responsibly reopen, with science-based health and safety protocols strictly enforced at our theme park properties around the world. Nevertheless, the State of California continues to ignore this fact, instead mandating arbitrary guidelines that it knows are unworkable and that hold us to a standard vastly different from other reopened businesses and state-operated facilities. Together with our labor unions we want to get people back to work, but these State guidelines will keep us shuttered for the foreseeable future, forcing thousands more people out of work, leading to the inevitable closure of small family-owned businesses, and irreparably devastating the Anaheim/Southern California community.
As it stands right now, Disneyland will remain closed for the foreseeable future.
Business owners around Disneyland are also feeling the impact of the prolonged closure. You can read some testimonials at-
