Disney parks to re-open – but no screaming please

Disney has announced plans to re-open its two theme parks in California next month – but new rules mean visitors will still feel the impact of pandemic.

The firm will limit attendance, require masks for those aged two and above, and have temperature screenings at some locations.

And an industry trade group has advised against potentially risky activities – like screaming on rides.

The California parks have been shut for more than a year.

State officials lifted restrictions earlier this month, citing falling coronavirus cases, although they kept in place some limits, including capping attendance at 15% capacity and barring out-of-state visitors.

The California Attractions and Parks Association, which has pushed for parks to be able to re-open, said members would be able to meet standards for health and safety, including guidance against activities like shouting and singing, by modifying seating on rides, encouraging masks and other measures.
