Things were already difficult in California, with stay-at-home orders enacted and COVID-19 rates that continue to skyrocket. Now Disneyland is taking another hit as they scale back their recently reopened dining venues, and, according to the Orange County Register, furlough 350 additional workers.
In keeping with the latest safety measures handed down by California and its various levels of local government, Disneyland will be closing all restaurants and dining locations that do not offer a take-out option tomorrow (Monday, December 7th.) Retail locations remain open for holiday shoppers, with reduced 20% capacities.
Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure themselves remain closed, but the Downtown Disney District of shopping and dining venues had embarked on a phased reopening for the holidays, including an expansion onto Buena Vista Street. The Disneyland Resort Hotels will remain closed as well, with Disney announcing that all reservations through December 31 have been cancelled.
As this situation is very fluid, and changes are occurring almost daily, guests who are planning to visit the Downtown Disney District should check the Downtown Disney website before finalizing their trip.
