The Disney Group chief executive said on Tuesday that he hoped the Disneyland theme park would open "by the end of April", thanks to a decision by California authorities to ease epidemiological measures following a drop in the number of coronavirus infections in the state.
"We hope that the situation will continue to improve and that we will be able to open our parks to visitors by the end of April with limited capacity. We will announce the opening day in the coming weeks,” said Bob Chapek, CEO of the largest amusement park in the world.
California reported on Friday that Disneyland and other amusement parks, closed due to a pandemic a year ago, could open on April 1 if their county is no longer in the "dark red zone," the area of greatest risk by California standards.
Orange County, where Disneyland is located, is still in the “dark red zone,” but could move to a lower, red level in a few weeks.
