Disney is postponing the reopening of its theme parks in Anaheim, Calif., until governmental approvals are in place.

Two weeks ago, the company announced plans to reopen Disneyland and Disney California Adventure on July 17, implementing health safety protocols to help prevent the spread of coronavirus.

In a statement, Disney said California indicated it wouldn’t issue reopening guidelines for theme parks until “sometime after July 4.”

“Given the time required for us to bring thousands of cast members back to work and restart our business, we have no choice but to delay the reopening of our theme parks and resort hotels until we receive approval from government officials,” Disney said. “Once we have a clearer understanding of when guidelines will be released, we expect to be able to communicate a reopening date.”

Shopping, dining and entertainment complex Downtown Disney will still reopen as planned on July 9.

A phased reopening of Disney World theme parks in Orlando is scheduled to begin on July 11.
