Disneyland Resort has announced that its previously-announced plans for reopening on July 17 will now have to be delayed.
The news comes as a result of the State of California indicating that it will not release theme park reopening guidelines until after July 4, which delays Disneyland in bringing its cast members back to work and preparing for guests.
The resort’s reopening will have to be delayed until it receives approval from government officials and clear guidelines on what is to be required as far as protocols for the parks to reopen.
You can check out the announcement for yourself in the tweet below:
The Downtown Disney District will still reopen on July 9 as planned, and it was previously approved in line with restaurant and retail opening guidelines in California. The Master Services Union, which represents the resort’s retail cast in Downtown Disney, previously signed an agreement for cast members there to return to work.
The announcement also shares that in order to reopen the theme parks, Disneyland will have to negotiate agreements with the unions in order for cast members to return to work. Currently, they have signed agreements with 20 union affiliates.
Stay tuned for more updates as we await Disneyland Resort’s new reopening date.
