Due to capacity limits and health and safety measures, the way a lot of Disney restaurants function has changed — and some still haven’t reopened since the closure over a year ago. Quick Service restaurants became almost exclusively available on Mobile Order, and we’ve gotta be real with you…that hasn’t exactly worked out as conveniently as advertised.
With park reservations almost completely sold out, we were prepared for quite a big crowd of fellow Disney fans today as we made our way around. We’ve had almost a year to experience the Disney World parks with capacity restrictions, social distancing, and other health and safety measures in place, so we were curious how that would translate to Disneyland. And now, we’re taking a look!
Even though Disney World has been open since last July, there are many things that have yet to make their return to the parks, including certain restaurants (we still miss you, Casey’s Corner) and experiences, like nighttime shows and fireworks.
We only JUST got park hopping back in January, and we’re still missing things like preshows for certain attractions due to social distancing. One thing that we hear about a LOT from readers is an experience that has been absent since the summer — FastPass+.
Disney has parks and resorts in several spots around the world, and each location has its own unique charm — and merchandise.
Recently we’ve seen items from Disney’s Aulani Resort come “visit” Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, and it has been fun to see new styles and characters represented. Today, we even spotted a pair of Aulani Minnie Ears we hadn’t seen yet!
So…is the PeopleMover opening or nah?
This week, it was announced that the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover’s refurbishment of over a year was finally coming to an end this weekend. We spotted updated hours for the attraction on the Disney website, and upon talking to Cast Members, were told that today might be the magical day. So, we were at Magic Kingdom bright and early this morning to scope out the situation for ourselves.
