If you’re thinking of ways to spend your stimmy, you’re going to hold off on spending it at Disneyland, as least for now.
Disneyland announced they will reopen on April 30th, according to Forbes. But, it really is going to be a ‘small world after all’ in the theme park as they will only open at 15 percent capacity and to California residents only.
The strict rules fall in line with the state’s “red tier” guidelines for COVID-19.
The opening however, is good news for Disney employees. Forbes reports more than 10,000 Disneyland employees will return to work. Disney theme park employees have seen significant cuts as the company laid off 32,000 employees in the U.S. parks division.
The California theme park has been closed since the start of the pandemic last March.
News of the park’s reopening comes on the cusp of Disney announcing closures of its Disney stores including three in San Antonio.
According to USA Today, the company said it was reducing the number of stores to focus on its e-commerce business.
The slated closing date is March 23, USA Today reports.
As a millennial who grew up going to Disney stores inside San Antonio mall, I probably speak for most folks when I say, “you’ll be in my heart.”
