Disney Parks Chairman to California Governor: "We're Ready. It's Time."

Citing the financial devastation the closing of the Disneyland Resort is having on the local economy and the company’s experience operating theme parks safely during the coronavirus pandemic, the head of the Walt Disney Co.’s Disney Parks division made a plea to California government officials to release health and safety guidelines to reopen Disneyland and Disney California Adventure in Anaheim.

“We’re ready, and more importantly, it’s time,” Disney Parks, Experiences and Products Chairman Josh D’Amaro said during a virtual press conference on Tuesday.

Disney’s latest reopening push comes a week after several Anaheim officials, local business leaders and a theme park trade association pressed Newsom to release health and safety guidelines to reopen theme parks across the state despite the coronavirus pandemic. As of Tuesday, Orange County has recorded 52,201 coronavirus cases and 138 deaths.

Orange County's coronavirus numbers are faring better than other counties in the state. Earlier this month, Orange County moved from the state's most restrictive purple tier to red, which allowed the reopening of schools and businesses at limited capacity in the county. If Orange County continues its coronavirus downward trend, it could move to the state's orange tier that would allow for the reopening of more businesses and increase attendance capacity at churches, malls, shopping centers, and gyms.

3. "It's time?" WTF? Time to endanger the public?

CA isn’t out of the woods yet ... We need to let Labor Day “shake out” first. Yeah Walt would be proud ...

4. Businesses, large and small, are really pushing to reopen again.

I guess they are too stupid to realize that opening and closing costs more money and prolongs the virus and restrictions for all of us. We should have nipped it in the bud when we has the chance.
