“The Happiest Place on Earth” also referred to as Disneyland Resort announced its temporary closing at the start of quarantine. However, visitors might be able to visit a small portion of the resort once again.

A month ago, news broke out about the reopening of Buena Vista Street, an area in the shopping and dining extension of Downtown Disney. The park originally decided that the area will reopen sometime in October, however the date was delayed a month. Finally, the confirmed date changed to November 19th. Of course, the park will most likely open with the conditions of safety regulations such as capacity to keep social distancing.

Dining areas such as Carthay Circle Restaurant, Award Wieners, Smokejumpers Grill and the Fiddler, Fifer and Practical Cafe will be open to the public. Customers will be able to purchase souvenirs and holiday items as well. Customers will be charged for parking, however admission is free.

California officials are slowly approving reopenings of only small parks, of course with the condition of strict safety regulations. Ken Potrock, the president of Disneyland Resort states that they have many plans for the future when covid cases slowly die down.  “We have proven that we can responsibly reopen, with science-based health and safety protocols strictly enforced at our theme park properties around the world.”
