Here are some pandemic changes that theme parks ought to keep

Who else has grown to hate the words “new normal?” As a theme park fan, I hope that Disneyland remaining closed does not become part of any “normal” in Southern California. Looking at other parks that have reopened around the country, I hope that we can see parades, fireworks and character meets return, and that their absence does not become part of any future “normal,” either.

Theme park crowds stay away due to COVID-19 spikes

The pent-up demand that Disney, Six Flags and other theme park operators expected after COVID-19 threatened to cancel their summer seasons hasn’t materialized as surges in coronavirus cases across the U.S. have kept visitors at home. Quarterly reports from Disney, Universal, Six Flags, SeaWorld and Cedar Fair paint a grim picture of the theme park industry with revenues down more than 90% and attendance close to zero during the recent three-month period when most parks were shuttered by the glob...

Disney lost $3.5 billion in operating income from its closed theme parks last quarter and analysts say the impact could weigh on the business for years

Disney's parks and products business missed out during the third quarter, as the coronavirus pandemic shuttered its theme parks around the world.  Disney's theme parks, including its flagship Walt Disney World location, are reopening in phases.  But Wall Street analysts have said the business still faces a long recovery.

Is there any hope for Southern California theme parks?

It’s quarterly reporting time for corporate America, and the news from the companies that own the nation’s top theme parks is as bad as expected. Most companies, including Universal, Six Flags and Knott’s Berry Farm owner Cedar Fair, started reopening parks in June, the final month of the second quarter. Disney did not reopen its Walt Disney World theme parks until July, so none of that revenue will show in its second quarter report. Sign up for our Park Life newsletter and find out what’s new ...
