To date, Anaheim has calculated $ 100 million in losses since the closure of Coronavirus in March, due to undeclared revenue from the park and surrounding businesses that benefit from their operations. The city has reported that these businesses contribute substantially to their general budget. Therefore, the city has joined others, such as the California Attractions and Parks Association, by calling in Gov. Newsom. One can start the reopening process by issuing guidelines to open the amusement park safely.
Anaheim spokesman, Mike Lister, commented:
We need guidance and an economic reform roadmap so that we know that we will not move from coronavirus to another great recession

Although other sectors of California’s economy appear open under government. Steps have not been taken towards opening amusement parks such as Newsom’s Blueprint, Disneyland and Universal for a safe economy. Beaches, restaurants and other businesses are operating with COVID-19 health and safety restrictions, but Disneyland and Disney California Adventure are still closed today, despite faces that there have been no outbreaks at Walt Disney World in Florida.
Gov Newsom had already indicated that there would be discussions and progress was being made towards opening the park, but no official announcement has been made about any decision.
