News has been circulating about Disneyland reopening and the safety requirements needed to visit the theme park.
“I am so excited for Disneyland to open back up and for guests to be allowed back,” said Katy Duaghtery, 8.
On March 14, 2020, Disneyland closed its theme park due to the Coronavirus pandemic. On July 17, 2020, they reopened with many COVID-19 guidelines. Some of the precautions include shortening ending days by 1-2 hours, temperature screenings, face coverings required on guests 2 and older, reservations before coming, following the ground markings, and limits on the number of guests allowed in. The park will be fully sanitized before and after in order to keep visitors, staff, and cast members safe and the park open.
“I have not been to Disneyland, but I have heard lots of people happy about it reopening,” said Kiera Bowling, 8.
All of the staff working at Disneyland have been required to train on how to keep everyone safe and help stop the spread of COVID-19. The biggest difference in visiting the theme park nowadays is that almost everything you do has to do with technology. When you make a reservation, you purchase meals, unlock your hotel room, look at food menus, and need additional info online. The biggest question while reopening was how are the staff members going to give hugs and pictures safely. For now, taking pictures with the characters is temporarily unavailable due to safety measures.
Disneyland is doing absolutely everything they can to get families, friends, and guests back in the park as carefully and as magically as before.
