Disneyland Cast Members and Fans Protest Outside Park Gates

Disneyland employees and fans gathered outside the iconic California theme park this morning to pressure Governor Gavin Newsom into allowing all of the theme parks to reopen.

All of the theme parks in California have been shut down since the middle of March and Disney, in particular, has been sparring with Newsom in order to get their park open to the public. Currently, only the Downtown Disney area, which is made up of dining and shopping, is open to the public. The ongoing public health crisis limits how many people can be in the area at any given time.

Just over 20 Disneyland Cast Members and fans showed up outside of the park to protest this morning. They all want Gavin Newsom to allow the park to reopen. The Downtown Disney portion of the park has been at capacity for weeks now, with people desperate to get any kind of Disney fix.

However, Gavin Newsom has not had any interest in reopening the park, or any of the other theme parks in California, including Knott’s Berry Farm, Universal Studios, and Magic Mountain.
