Disneyland employees, fans and elected officials rally in Anaheim to push for reopening

Disney fans, cast members and elected officials rallied outside of Disneyland on Saturday morning to push for reopening after the coronavirus pandemic forced the theme park's closure in March.        

The group says they're supporting the employees and cast members who have been laid off due to park closures.

They held signs that read 'Open Disneyland,' and “Recall Newsom.'
