    California Governor Gavin Newsom Won’t Budge On Theme Park Reopening Rules, Refuses To Say The Word “Disneyland” When Asked About Anaheim Park

    By Tom Tapp

    UPDATED with the latest: Just minutes after California Governor Gavin Newsom reiterated his support for stringent rules around the reopening of theme parks in the state, the California Attractions and Parks Association, a trade group that represents theme parks, issued a response.

    But there was one word the governor refused to say: “Disneyland.”

    When asked about the furor over the continued closure of the Anaheim park, Newsom continued obliquely.

    “You bring up one theme park. California has dozens and dozens of theme parks,” he said. “You bring up one particular operator of a theme park that does things very very differently than other operators.
