Disneyland Reopening Uncertain After Recent Comments from Governor

Disneyland Reopening Uncertain After Recent Comments from Governor

Recent comments by California’s governor have added to the uncertainty of when Disneyland could possibly reopen. Read on to find out what we know.

A recent statement by Governor Gavin Newsom, the Governor of California, has left many wondering what their summers may look like. The possibility of Disneyland opening soon is slim.

Disneyland Paris

Disneyland Paris is currently closed. Just yesterday, we found out that Disneyland Paris will likely not be opening until at least mid-summer.

Disneyland Paris Likely Won't Open Until Mid-Summer

This is due to an extension on restricting large gatherings. All the summer festivals were canceled, including the Tour de France, which was scheduled for the end of June 2020.

Shanghai Disney

Shanghai Disney Resort has partially resumed operations. This happened on March 9, 2020 when a limited number of shopping, dining, and recreational experiences opened in Disneytown, Wishing Star Park, and Shanghai Disneyland Hotel.

The latest information that was announced today was an additional health requirement when entering Shanghai Disney Resorts. Disney states that they are continuing to closely monitor China’s health and safety conditions.


Today, California’s Governor stated that “mass gatherings” of hundreds to thousands of people will likely be prohibited through the summer.

Disneyland is currently closed indefinitely. However, they are taking reservations that begin on June 1, 2020.

With the likelihood of mass gatherings being banned through the summer, it does not seem likely for Disneyland to be opening soon.

Disneyland Won't Refund Tickets due to Coronavirus

There is the potential for new policies to be in place once the parks are opened again. Speculation of a modified experience has surfaced.

These modifications that fellow writer, Jamie, wrote about could include things such as:

  • Suspending meet and greets with face characters.
  • Reducing the maximum capacity of transportation options.
  • Continuation of hand washing stations and sanitizers.
  • Re-opening the parks in phases with limited attractions and shows that can be adapted to capacity and guest spacing needs.
  • Limiting the number of people in indoor queue spaces. This may see the use of virtual queues, similar to the Boarding Groups that were in use for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.
  • Eliminating entertainment that requires guests to be closely gathered, such as nightly firework shows and parades.
  • Table-service restaurant capacity reduced to maintain a maximum of 50% occupancy. Tables will be spaced at least six ft apart.
  • Utilization of Mobile Ordering via My Disney Experience only, no queuing for Quick-Service Restaurants.

I’m so sad about the state of our world. I’m just afraid that large gatherings such as Disneyworld and festivals or concerts will not happen until 2021... New Orleans Mayor made that statement about her city

Living in a sterile bubble is just not possible. There are diseases we don't know about circulating the globe as we speak. We cannot give up freedom, liberty and joy to be sequestered and isolated. I want to live my life not be isolated from it. Enough already

Disney refuses to even consider a refund for my tickets that are unusable because of the COVID pandemic. I don’t live near any Disney Park and now I don’t think I want to risk my families health for a theme park. They do not care and are unwilling to help out with a 1500 dollar ticket deal that has been refunded by everyone except them. Airlines, hotel and car...
