Following a downward trend in cases, Orange County in California has been moved off the Coronavirus monitoring list.
As the tweet from the City of Anaheim above illustrates, being moved off the list means that:
- Sign of progress, but no changes right away
- Must stay off the list for two weeks
- Schools could opt for “in-person learning” starting September 8th
- No changes yet for businesses; awaiting new state guidance
- Keep up the vigilance to stop spread
What does this news mean for Disneyland Resort? At this time, no reopening dates for the theme parks have been set. However, its possible that we could see a date announced in the next few weeks should the downward trend continue. Government approval for the reopening of any California theme park has yet to be given.
The Downtown Disney District has been open since last month, and currently, the Disneyland Resort hotels are accepting reservations starting mid-September.
At the moment, Disney’s Grand California Hotel & Spa and Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel are both accepting reservations for the 16th September and beyond. However, the Disneyland Hotel is only accepting new reservations for the 1st October and later.
Disneyland has however already cancelled reservations through the 12th September. Stay tuned to Orlando Theme Park Zone for further updates on this ongoing story.
