New California theme park rules
Per The OC Register, California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s new “Blueprint for a Safer Economy” plan allows for fully vaccinated people from outside of California to attend activities and events in California.
- This includes events that were previously limited to California residents only.
Before the announcement, California only allowed state residents to attend theme parks in the state. So, according to officials who spoke to the OC Register, out-of-state visitors can now attend those theme parks if the parks allow it to happen.
The California Attractions and Parks Association — which represents major theme parks like Disneyland, Universal Studios Hollywood and Knott’s Berry Farm — said parks may soon make changes.
- “This addendum now allows fully vaccinated persons from out of state to visit or attend activities or events that were previously restricted to in-state visitors,” the CAPA said in a statement, according to the OC Register. “As vaccinations become more widespread and state guidance evolves, individual parks may update their own responsible reopening plans in accordance with state and local public health regulations.”
What this means for Disneyland
As I wrote for the Deseret News, Disneyland is only allowing California residents to attend the park when it reopens on April 30. The park allows groups to be made up of families from three different households.
