The war over whether or not Disneyland should reopen rages on. After Disney announced it was laying off 28,000 employees, partially blaming California’s refusal to allow theme parks to reopen, the state has yet to budge. In fact, California governor Gavin Newsom hinted that it may be some time before theme parks are allowed to reopen in California.
Speaking to the media, per The Hollywood Reporter, Newsom said, “We don’t anticipate in the immediate term any of these larger parks opening until we see more stability in terms of the data. We feel there’s no hurry to put out guidelines, and we continue to work with the industry.”
Newsom’s comments come after Disney chairman Bob Iger resigned from the state’s economic task force. However, according to the governor, “It didn’t come as a surprise to me at all. There are disagreements about opening a major theme park.”
