Disneyland remains ready to reopen amid the coronavirus pandemic if local health officials give the park the go-ahead, according to the Disney Parks chairman.

What’s going on?

Josh D’Amaro, chairman of Disney’s parks, products and experiences unit, recently told Roger Dow that Disneyland is ready to reopen if and when it receives full approval.

  • “As soon as a date and those guidelines are set, I can tell you, we’re ready.”

D’Amaro said Disney World has implemented many new guidelines and measures, some of which may exist once the pandemic ends, too.

  • “These are things that are helping us now, but I think they’re here to stay.”
