We are excited to announce that the Governor of California, Gavin Newsom, recently stated: that California Theme Parks may reopen in Stage 3 which could start as early as June 2020.

California has just begun initiating Stage 2 of the COVID-19 reopening plan. So far, things appear to be going relatively well. The state of California has seen a steady decrease in hospitalizations for COVID-19. It was officially confirmed by the OC Register that theme parks fall under “Stage 3” of the reopening plan. Governor Gavin Newsom claims that as long as these numbers are stable, Stage 3 may begin as early as June 2020!

Now we have something more concrete to look forward to, even though no official dates have been announced. This news came as a pleasant surprise. The last thing that we heard, Governor Newsom thought California theme parks would likely not be able to reopen until Stage 4.

Some California Theme parks that may reopen soon include the Disneyland Resort, Universal Studios Hollywood, Knott’s Berry Farm, and more. At this time, Disneyland is only accepting reservations beginning in July 2020 or later. Even when the Governor gives the green light, some businesses may choose to wait a little longer to reopen.

Theme parks are still seen as “high-risk” locations, alongside gyms, salons, and religious gatherings. New safety protocols and equipment will be required, at least at first. We will update here once those are announced. Even though some restrictions may be lifted, please stay safe!
