Feeling Good About COVID-19 Safety At Disneyland
Business Insider Blogger said Downtown Disney was “the safest place I’ve been since the start of the pandemic…”
File under: Safe Excitement
This week’s watchword is, very clearly, “excitement.”
However, the pandemic is not over. So, in order to keep everyone safe, Disneyland has employed some straightforward methods designed to mitigate the spread and keep the park open.
This morning, Brittany Chang of Business Insider shared her very positive insights from her recent visit to Downtown Disney.
My fondness for Disneyland is comparable to that of my affection for In-N-Out: I love them both because they remind me of home and my childhood… But following Disneyland’s reopening announcement in March, I was concerned.
How could a theme park, known for attracting hordes of people, be safe to visit during the coronavirus pandemic?
The answer? Thankfully:
Overall, the slew of visual reminders for mask-wearing and social distancing, lack of crowds, and vigilant workers made me feel extremely comfortable and safe.
You should take a look at the full photo essay, but the gist of Brittany’s article spoke to:
- The comprehensive list of health protocols in play
- The overall level of safety precautions
- And the relative lack of crowding in Downtown Disney
All-in-all, the reporter’s experience mirrored much of what we’ve seen since MickeyBlog.com started doing in-person visits at Walt Disney World back in July 2020.
So, as we look forward to Friday’s reopening, it feels “safe” to say that Disneyland is following the example of Walt Disney World as Walt Disney’s dream in California prepares to open up its doors after a long, long respite.
