ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) – Disneyland is ending its annual ticket program 10 months after the theme park closes due to the coronavirus outbreak, the theme park said Thursday.
A park in Anaheim, California said it would begin issuing prorated refunds to eligible cardholders.
“Due to the ongoing uncertainty of the epidemic and the restrictions on reopening of our California theme parks, we will process a reasonable refund for eligible Disneyland Resort annual passports and cancel the current program.” Disneyland Resort President Ken Potrock said in a statement.He said the park will develop an offer for new members when it can be reopened.
Disney officials will not say how many people hold these cards or how much it costs to move.
The announcement came the same week that Disneyland allowed county health officials to use the parking lot for the large coronavirus vaccination facility.
Disneyland closed for business in March and has not reopened as the coronavirus metric in the area where the park is located has not decreased to the level set by the state.
California health officials say large theme parks such as Disneyland can only reopen when transmission reaches the lowest level, then park capacity is capped at 25% and must be reserved in advance.
California has seen an increase in coronavirus cases in recent months, which has sparked the shutdown of numerous businesses and announced nighttime curfews in many states.
