Disney announces delay in reopening California parks

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) – For Disney properties in California, it’s still a closed world, after all.

The entertainment company is putting on hold plans to reopen its West Coast theme parks and other attractions next month.

Disney planned to reopen Disneyland and Disney California Adventure on July 17, after a four-month shut down because of the coronavirus.

But Disney says it can’t do that until state officials provide guidelines on how to proceed.

And those rules won’t be available until after July 4.

Disney says that won’t provide enough time to get workers back to the park and trained before a July 17 reopening. No new reopening date for the California parks has been set.
