History published on Orange County Registry The website commented in detail that Disney CEO Bob Chapek shared today on CNBC’s “Closing Bell”. In the interview, Chapek did not hold back his opinion on the guidelines for resumption proposed by California Governor Gavin Newsum. Chapek described the guidelines as “strict” and “arbitrary”.
After a radio silence in the weeks after the mass layoffs, Chapek was well on the news today. First, Senator Elizabeth Warren sent a scathing letter to Chapek and Disney President Bob Iger. Disney responded by posting a statement that bypassed Warren̵
During his appearance in Closing Bell, Chapek hinted at Disney’s success in its open spaces.
“I look at our Disney properties – be it Shanghai, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Paris, Walt Disney World, the Disney bubble for the NBA – and all I see is that we were able to open up responsibly using the guidelines that health experts they gave us care. As a result, we have been able to reopen very, very successfully without having problems that prevent us from staying open. “

When discussing the dropped members of the roles, Chapek did not strike any blows. He blamed the state of California directly.
“We would like to get our cast members back to work – as many of them as possible – as soon as possible, if the government allows us.”

Although California is offering a 25% limit on the theme park’s capacity, it also wants to limit visitors to a 120-mile radius from Disneyland. This arrangement will make Disneyland a local draw. Chapek called the restrictions a “mandate to stay closed.”
