After more than a year Disney reopens its doors in California
Last Friday, April 30, 2021, Disneyland Resort opened its doors, after having been closed for more than a year due to the coronavirus pandemic, which completely paralyzed the activity of one of the main tourist attractions in California. Tickets for the opening sold out in less than 12 hours and some fans of the Mickey Mouse company spent the night nearby.
The reopening has led to the return of more than 15,000 employees to their jobs, although for now the two theme parks - Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park - will limit their capacity to 25% until sanitary conditions improve.
The return of activity in theme parks has been received as an approach to normality for California residents, although with protocols to comply with sanitary measures. All visitors two years and older must wear a mask, a safety distance will be maintained in all facilities and those with closed spaces will divide the public by domestic units. A mobile application has also been enabled to reserve the day of the visit and at the moment there will be no shows in order to avoid crowds.
At the moment, California authorities only allow entry to residents of the state, where vaccination is progressing apace: more than 40% of its population has received at least one dose and 30% have the two recommended. The goal of the most populated state in the US is to fully reactivate its economy as of July.
