MickeyBlog Is in the News Today
Our MickeyBloggers are some of the hardest working in the biz but also have an uncanny knack for being at the right place at the right time! If you’ve been following along with us today, you’ll know that we’ve been coming to you LIVE from Disneyland Resort where our coverage of theme park crowds drew the attention The New York Times, Travel Weekly and NBC 4 Los Angeles.
Here’s a closer look at MickeyBlog’s appearances in today’s news cycle.
Please check out the awesome story from Travel Weekly above where not only did they use one of Greg’s awesome photos as their lead image but they spoke to Greg at length about those morning Disneyland crowds and the reduction of health and safety measures at the parks.
Today marked the first day that guests were able to visit the parks without wearing facemask, going through a temperature check or having to maintain social distancing.
Greg’s images from Disneyland showed crowds that look as if they had returned to pre-pandemic levels. As Greg told Travel Weekly, “If you didn’t know any different, you would think that this was last January or February,” he said. “[It was] just a stark contrast to what it’s been here.”

Greg was also lucky enough to speak to Tariro Mzezewa, a travel writer for the The New York Times earlier today. During their chat Greg described the noticeable changes at Disneyland this morning. Noticeable changes include no social distancing on rides and attractions, guests no longer wearing face masks and all physical distancing markers and signage being removed from the parks.
