Throw a few barricades and hand-painted signs in front of the security checkpoints, and they’re good to go!

ANAHEIM, CA — Borrowing an idea from Seattle protestors, today the Disney Company declared the Disneyland Resort an “autonomous zone” and opened the parks. The move comes in defiance of a ban by California Governor Gavin Newsom (D ipwad ). 

Disney CEO Bob “Robert” Chapek tells Uncle Walt’s Insider, “I don’t know why we hadn’t thought of this before. I mean, the Florida properties have had their own autonomous zone for decades. They just call it an ‘improvement district’ for some reason. Anyway, they can do what they want, and they’ve been open for months!”

Next steps?

California citizens, wearied by soaring virus numbers in spite of (or because of?) extreme lockdown measures, are watching the Disneyland situation carefully.

“If Disneyland can pull this off,” said Anaheim resident Pat Henry, “I think we should expand the zone to cover the whole state. It worked for the original 13 colonies!”
