Since Disneyland closed temporarily, we’ve been missing Mickey Ice Cream Bars and Hyperspace Mountain EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.
Although we aren’t sure when the parks will be reopening to guests, you can still get a peek at the Happiest Place on Earth (even when there is nobody there)!
Thanks to The Sun, we’re able to see some pretty eerie aerial views of the Disneyland parks! While Downtown Disney is usually a shopping and dining center hub bustling with people,…
…the stores and restaurants have their doors closed without a person in sight.
This is mainly because Disneyland and Disney California Adventure won’t be opening until further notice. Although the parks originally projected to reopen at the end of the month, the closure has been extended indefinitely (and we are having SERIOUS Disney withdrawal).
While Disneyland has offered refunds and rescheduling availability to the guests affected by the closures, they can also take advantage of special hotel discounts if they travel from June 1st through December 31st, 2020. And, Annual Passholders will also have their passes extended according to how many days the parks are closed. When the parks were closed but Downtown Disney was open, we got a glimpse at what a guest free park looked like.
With the parks being closed without any Cast, Crew, or guests visiting, we are feeling a little spooked to see nobody in Disneyland (we’re ready to huuurrryyy baaack). Although the Mickey flower design has a big smile to welcome everyone, we can’t help but feel somewhat sad not knowing when we’ll be able to hop on the Matterhorn Bobsleds or see Sleeping Beauty Castle again.
Seriously, you guys, have you ever seen Main Street this empty?? There aren’t any Dapper Dans to harmonize with, characters to greet, or parades to watch. Wow, we never thought we’d see the day where Mickey balloons would be missing from the parks.
And, over in Disney California Adventure, the park is just as bare without the Incredicoaster slingshotting guests on a chase after Jack Jack…
…or the Pixar Pal-A-Round Ferris Wheel swinging guests over the water in Paradise Gardens Park.
Since the hotels are currently closed too, the parking lots are all empty as well. Can you believe that this is the same Disneyland that had to stop selling tickets since it was so busy during the holidays??
After seeing these aerial shots, we miss the Disney Parks even more. Who else is ready to walk down Main Street with their Minnie Ears on and a Dole Whip in hand??
