Disneyland appears to be getting closer and closer to reopening. The resort has reportedly reached return to work agreements with 11 employee unions, according to the Orange County Register.

  • These new agreements will allow Disneyland Resort to bring back their Cast Members with new COVID-19 health and safety measures in place.
  • The 11 unions who have reached these agreements represent the vast majority of Disneyland Cast Members.
  • These new deals will allow the Cast Members to return to work as soon as possible.
  • Among the unions that have signed the new agreement is Workers United Local 50, the resort’s second largest union, which represents food and beverage cast members.
  • Other unions that have reached agreements include:
    • Master Services Council
    • Independent Employee Services Association
    • Craft Maintenance Council
    • International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees
  • Earlier this week, California Governor Gavin Newsom said that a team will be traveling around the country visiting theme parks that are already open to see the operations for themselves.
  • Newsom also reiterated that everything will be done with the “health first” frame, further collaborating with not only the big name parks, but the smaller parks as well to maintain a distinction between the two.
  • The Orange County Health Care Agency recently toured the Disneyland Resort and offered recommendations for additional health and safety measures to be implemented at the parks.
  • Currently both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure are closed and do not have a reopening timeline.
