California Adventure, one of two theme parks at Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, announced that it would open some stores and eateries inside the park on Nov. 19.
While the theme park itself will remain closed, the park will open access to Buena Vista Street just inside the park’s entrance as an expansion of the Downtown Disney shopping district.
Dining options to reopen include Cathay Circle Restaurant, which will open a new outdoor dining space; Fiddler, Fifer & Practical Café; Award Wieners; and Smokejumpers Grill.
The two theme parks have been shuttered since March and have yet to receive the green light to reopen, while Downtown Disney reopened in July.
The state most recently released new theme park reopening guidance last month, when it said large theme parks will not be able to begin reopening until the county enters into the final, fourth tier in the state’s COVID-19 monitoring system.
The least restrictive yellow tier requires less than 1 average daily cases per 100,000 residents and a positive testing rate of less than 2%.
Orange County currently has a case rate of 6 and positive testing rate of 3.6%, keeping it in the red tier for the eighth consecutive week.
