California Governor, Gavin Newsom will be postponing the release of his administration’s guidance for Disneyland and other theme parks to reopen during the Coronavirus pandemic.

This comes as state officials said that guidance would be released this week and Newsom previously stated that “guidelines were coming soon”.

After reading a draft proposal of the guidelines, Disneyland and other Californian theme park companies have asked the Governor to postpone the release of the guidance.

This is due to the theme park companies finding the draft proposal too restrictive and not feasible.

According to LA Times reporter, Phil Wilson, the administration is “postponing the release of its guidance for reopening Disneyland and other amusement parks during the COVID-19 pandemic”.


It has been reported by The Orange County Register that some of the guidelines included theme parks only being able to operate at 25% capacity and to initially limit guests to people living within a 120 mile radius of each park.

This also comes as Disney’s Bob Iger quit Newsom’s Coronavirus economic task force.
