Walt Disney Co urged California officials to let the company reopen the Disneyland theme park, which remains shuttered six months after closing down to help curb the spread of coronavirus (Covid-19).
With approval from local authorities, Disney has reopened its parks in Shanghai, Paris and Florida with limited attendance, face mask requirements and other measures to prevent Covid-19 infections. Hong Kong Disneyland is set to reopen on Friday.
Disney parks officials, in a video briefing for reporters, said their safeguards had been successful and were given high marks by guests in customer surveys. The video included footage of families and employees throughout various parks wearing masks, keeping their distance on rides and saying they felt safe and enjoyed their visit.
Josh D'Amaro, Chairman of Disney parks, experiences and products, urged California officials to provide "fair and equitable guidelines" to allow Disneyland in Anaheim, California, to reopen.
