Disney Employees Say Reopening is Fantasyland
New coronavirus cases are hitting record levels in California and Florida. And that’s where Disney wants to reopen its theme parks in a few weeks.
Disney has lost billions from the pandemic, and is eager to open its parks and hotels, which are the entertainment giant's most profitable segment. But with tens of thousands of new cases in Florida and California reported every week, park employees are now telling Disney to keep the gates locked. Unions representing some 17,000 Disneyland employees have asked Gov. Gavin Newsom to block the park’s planned reopening in late July.
