The Walt Disney Company just announced that they are cancelling their original reopening plans for the Disneyland Resort on July 17, 2020.

We previously wrote that Disneyland announced its plans to reopen on its 65th anniversary. Unfortunately, those plans have just been changed. Disneyland and other California theme parks were waiting on the approval of the State to move forward with their plan. However, the State has decided not to give their official theme park guidelines until after July 4. That does not give them enough time to prepare their parks and employees, the Walt Disney Company explained in their announcement earlier today. So for now, the reopening plans and dates for the Disneyland Resort are still unknown.

The Downtown Disney District, however, will still be opening on July 9. It has already received approval for reopening based on restaurant and retail guidelines. Disney stated that they have had “positive discussions” with cast member unions and signed new agreements. This means that thousands of cast members can still return to work soon at Downtown Disney. The company also thanked their cast members and guests for their patience during this time.

As far as the reopening of the theme parks and resort hotels, we will update you as soon as we know.
