Hello from Disneyland!
We’ve been visiting regularly since the park’s reopening to keep you up to date on any changes that may affect your trip. And today, we noticed that it was CROWDED! Now, Disneyland is still required to operate at 25% capacity based on Orange County’s COVID-19 case count (and various other factors), so we have not seen a capacity increase recently. Still, we’re taking you along to see just how crazy things are lookin’ today!
We first noticed the congestion as we were trying to park. Traffic was closed to the Mickey and Friends Parking Structure entrance because of how backed up it was.
We were redirected away from Mickey and Friends before entering the garage via the Pixar Pals Parking Structure. From there, we were rerouted into Mickey and Friends to park. Phew! The whole process took us about 45 minutes.
There was also a REALLY long line for security…
…as well as general crowding in the structure.
But once we were out of the garage, the walk to the gates seemed fine…
…and there were short lines at the gates themselves!
Inside Disneyland, we noticed a fair share of guests at the Hub, with Main Street Vehicles driving by simultaneously. It created a bit of a traffic jam!
But the park felt emptier elsewhere.
In Frontierland, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad had a 25 minute wait.
Meanwhile, the wait for Pirates of the Caribbean was 40 minutes! Again, the park didn’t feel too full here.
As we mentioned, Disneyland is currently unable to increase capacity per California’s current restrictions. Once we got inside the park, the crowds didn’t seem too bad, but you will want to be aware of the congestion that can take place while parking/at the front of the park. We’ll keep you posted with plenty more updates from Disneyland, so stay tuned to DFB!
