Josh D’Amaro, the Chairman of Parks, Experiences & Products at The Walt Disney Company, is asking the state of California for help in re-opening the Disneyland and California Adventure theme parks in Anaheim. This is to bring thousands of its furloughed employees back to work.
“To our California government officials, particularly at the state level, I encourage you to treat theme parks like you would other sectors and help us reopen. We need guidelines that are fair and equitable so we can better understand our future and chart a path toward reopening,” said D’Amaro.
He then emphasized that Disneyland Resort is a “crucial part of the economy” for Anaheim and Orange County.

“The longer we wait, the more devastating the impact will be to the Orange County and Anaheim communities and to the tens of thousands of people who rely on us for employment,” D’Amaro then added. “With the right guidelines and our years of operations experience, I am confident that we can restart and get people back to work.”
“As you can see from this discussion today…we’re ready. And more importantly, it’s time,” he also said.
More than 80,000 people in the area are relying on the company for employment.
Disneyland remains closed after closing in March to curb the spread of COVID-19.
