Amusement parks in California are a common source of state and local tax revenue and economic supporters. It’s also the key to Disney’s profitability. Parks are the most popular entertainment section of the global epidemic, in addition to cinemas and live events. The closure of the park cost both Walt Disney and Comcast parent NBUniversal several billion dollars.
Over the past year, California’s amusement parks have struggled with Governor Gavin Newsom’s strict closing rules for their properties. In fact, Newsom revealed that Iger has left the state agency to revive the economy due to his disagreement about the reopening.
More recently, there has been some confusion about whether fully vaccinated out-of-state visitors are allowed at parks. Of course, they represent a lot of income for abandoned parks in California.

The state appeared to be open to such businesses yesterday when Newsom held a press conference to sign a $ 6.2 billion tax cut bill benefiting the hardest-hitting small businesses in the state.

The deadline was confirmed today with a California Department of Health spokesman that state guidelines allow fully vaccinated people from outside the state to participate in activities that are limited to visitors in the state only. Which includes an amusement park
