Disney’s Chief Medical Officer Fires Back, Rejecting California Governor’s Statement Regarding Disneyland

Well, the Disneyland and California Government debate over how and when Disneyland should reopen continues! After over 6 months of closure, California has yet to agree to reopen Disneyland due to COVID-19 concerns while Disney Parks around the globe are already in phased reopening. Disney’s Chief Medical Officer had a statement to share last night, October 7.


California Governor Newsom stated the following yesterday, October 7, to the media: “There’s disagreements in terms of opening a major theme park. We’re going to let science and data make that determination. I understand the friction and frustration that many business leaders have. That they want to move forward to reopen, but we’re going to be led by a health-first framework and we’re going to be stubborn about it.”

So, a statement firing back was posted to Disney Parks News Twitter last night as shown here from Dr. Pamela Hymel, Chief Medical Officer, Disney Parks, Experiences and Products:

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and runDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways, and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. There isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 18 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family, we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
