ANAHEIM, Calif. (KABC) — At a news conference on Tuesday, Disney officials provided an update on the status of reopening of several of the company’s theme parks in the U.S. — and urged California officials to allow visitors to safely return to Disneyland and California Adventure.
The online event included representatives from Anaheim’s Disneyland Resort, Florida’s Epcot Center, Walt Disney World hotels, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom, as well as Josh D’Amaro, chairman of Disney parks, experiences and products.
“We are ready to open, and we are hoping we will have guidance from the state soon,” said Patrick Finnegan, vice president of Disney California Adventure and Downtown Disney district.
The popular shopping district reopened to the public in July with new health protocols in place. California Adventure and Disneyland remain shut down, more than six months after the coronavirus pandemic forced their temporary closure.
