So Governor Newsom told Disney they weren’t allowed to open Disneyland, or at least the theme park aspect of Disneyland. So like Universal Hollywood, Disney is going to only open it’s stores and restaurants on Buena Vista Street in November.

Basically they are just going to extend the open shops and restaurants in Downtown Disney, into Disney California Adventure and make it one big shopping area. No rides or shows will be operating.

Guests that visit the newly opened area will still be required to follow guidelines like temperature checks and social distancing. Capacity limits will still be set and will be followed.

Orange County CEO Frank Kim said “It’s not a gray area — it is permitted.”

In fact Knott’s Berry Farm has also done it.

Disney has announced that the following will be opening next month:

  • Elias & Co.
  • Julius Katz & Sons
  • Kingswell Camera Shop
  • Trolley Treats
  • Fiddler, Fifer & Practical Cafe
  • Carthay Circle Lounge
  • Smokejumpers Grill

When the governor gives you lemons you smash them into sour lemon water and spray it back at him as you open up what you can anyways. It isn’t ideal, but it’s better than nothing and it will get more people back to work.
