So much has happened since yesterday morning.

Iger quit the state's pandemic task force.

Disney has seen the final guidelines and is obviously not liking them since they're now asking for them to be delayed after demanding them to be released.

Or more specifically, will prohibit DLR from being profitable returning a net positive contribution.



I would hate to think though that other parks are going to suffer, because Disney can't reimagine their business model, or admit that filling their park with cheap APs for decades was a bad idea. The guidelines should just be accepted for being the safe and rational way forward, and if it doesn't work for Disney, so be it.


These two things aren’t mutually exclusive. Disney has been filling their park with APs AND Newsomes guidelines are ridiculous and not feasible.

Under the rumored guidelines Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Shanghai Disney would be open.
Paris, WDW, and Disneyland would be closed.

So it is feasible.

I believe they should revisit the guidelines and do what they can to get people back to work ASAP. However, IMO some posters should slow down on the rhetoric directed at the state. I know that's not a popular opinion and I have stayed quiet lately since anyone who doesn't think a certain way is shouted down. However, I believe it is a much more nuanced and complex issue than people are presenting it to be.

Ok I forgot Disneyland was located in China/ Japan.

No one really cares about those foreign parks anyway. Disneyland is the only park that matters, second would be all of Disneyworld.

if I had the time and money to see all the parks around the world I would do it. Then again I keep choosing Hawaii, Mexico and the Caribbean for our family vacations. Convenience probably has something to do with it.

But yeah Disneyland will obviously always be King.

I would probably visit them too just to check them out, but would I make multiple trips? no. would I buy a annual pass for any of those parks? No. But I would for Disneyland without question or hesitation.

Not to mention variety. Sure other Disney parks have different attractions and shows and shops- and sure they'd be fun to see- but when you live so close to Disneyland Park, why spend vacation time and money for an experience that's usually similar in a lot of key ways?

Yeah that’s pretty much where I’m at. I’d have to be vacationing more than one long vacation a year to see other Disney parks. It’s also why I haven’t been to NY yet. I have a hard time picking NY over more relaxing tropical vacations when I’m only averaging a long vacation every 1.5 to 2 years.

One of the rumored guidelines (where my friend got it, I don't know) was to be in the yellow tier. They were fine with everything else but that one.

Like a dozen places have reported that now.

Alas one of the other reported rumors is they got that dropped to orange but the radius is the sticking point. Can you imagine they’re limited to radius operations until Covid is gone? We’re potentially talking a few years here! IF it goes away. I can see why they want it dropped.

There are at least two major problems with the radius requirement. One is that it won't do anything to help all the independent hotels and businesses around the theme parks that rely on guests from outside this radius to stay afloat.

The other thing is that there is nothing preventing Californians from going outside their local area and bringing COVID back with them, which makes the entire thing pointless. It almost feels like this is a requirement made to try to discourage parks from opening at all.

I have purchased passes for Disney World a couple of times. Now granted this was through DVC when they offered good deals, but we like both coasts and would love to visit the foreign parks.
