The COVID-19 pandemic is still having a profound impact on our society, even as some states and communities begin lessening restrictions. One of the most buzzworthy industries that has been affected by the pandemic has been theme parks, which have made headlines for reopening on wildly different timetables. Disneyland Resort in California was originally expected to let guests return on July 17th — but it looks like that’s no longer the case.
On Wednesday, the park announced that its reopening will be delayed, as the State of California is not currently able to offer reopening guidelines. The park has been shut down since mid-March, with some experts suggesting that it and Walt Disney World would end up being closed until 2021.

I want to be back at Disneyland as badly as anyone, but not under the current health conditions… the decision to delay opening is a wise one.— Dan Cunningham (@HonuDan) June 25, 2020
