WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:
- Disney’s California-based parks will welcome non-California natives starting June 15.
- Guests will be required to wear face coverings during their visit to the Disneyland Resort regardless of their vaccination status.
- Disney has been amending its health and safety guidelines as Covid vaccinations continue across the United States and daily new coronavirus cases fall.
California-based Disneyland parks will reopen to non-California residents starting June 15, Disney announced Wednesday.
On April 30, Disneyland and Disney California Adventure reopened their doors for California natives only. The parks were closed last year during coronavirus lockdowns.
In one of Disney’s blog posts, the company said that it will follow California state guidelines. Disney is encouraging theme park-goers to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 or at least obtain a Covid test showing a negative result before they can enter the parks.
All visitors will be required to wear face coverings during their visit to the Disneyland Resort whether they are fully vaccinated or not.
The company said it has been amending its health and safety guidelines as Covid vaccinations increase across the US and daily new coronavirus cases fall.
“We’re going to be able to raise our capacity limits; we’ve actually already started that,” CEO Bob Chapek said during the company’s earnings call in early May.
California is expected to lift all Covid-related restrictions on June 15. Currently theme parks are limited to 25% capacity.
Guests going to Disneyland will still have to book a theme park reservation in addition to buying a ticket for the parks. This process helps to limit the park’s capacity.
