I hope DLR survives. But the longer it's closed the less peop!e care about it like that recent rally.

”Dozen.” “More than 20.” You may have created publicity but it is not going to generate the reaction you want. There are probably more businesses affected by the continued closure than people who showed up. Getting a union involved probably would have driven more involvement.

>>Now, in a bid to appeal to California Governor Gavin Newsom, some passionate Disneyland lovers have put together a rally that will be held on Harbor Boulevard in front of Disneyland this weekend on Saturday, October 17.


On Facebook, event hosts Natasha Ramirez and Desi d’Amani shared this description:



It’s about time !

I really dislike the "recall Gavin Newsom" campaign getting intermingled with the "Reopen Disneyland". I'm as critical of his recent Covid measures as the next guy- but rallying to get him removed from office confuses the "let's get Disneyland reopened" message. I am mildly surprised we didn't see more Disneyland CM's there- especially the ones that just got laid off.
I think turn out was so low that the people who organized this probably didnt mind the recall group showing up.

As for why CMs wouldnt go, I'm sure most of them have moved on to looking for other work than bothering to want to work for Disney ever again. Time is better spent filling out applications than convincing the governor to open your old workplace that fired you.

This was clearly political. They were there because the organizers are clearly sympathetic to their goal and the unions were not because they are not politically aligned.

There are too many locals firmly entrenched in the Disneyland lifestyle. The parks will be fine, they aren't going anywhere.

Anyone that orders In N Out with having them add the chilis to their burger is a fool. I think they even grill them too if you ask... but having a few sliced chilis really takes an animal style double double up a notch.
I am going to have to find out if they will grill them, this is important research! LOL

Yep its what I feared, sparsely attended and mostly just by the "Recall Newsom" group which isn't very many.

So unless the crowds start showing up by the thousands after noon its going to be seen as 1. a joke of an event and 2. seen as not really many want Disneyland to reopen any time soon.
I would have considered going, but I opted to go to the Safari Park instead, as well, it is actually open.

People still care about Disneyland. Most people, however, have far more important concerns on their minds right now than theme parks.
Actually, there isn't much that is more important than theme parks and all other businesses that are still closed right now, the longer it continues, the worse the economy will be and will soon all be out of a job. Do not underestimate the importance of theme parks in Southern California.
