Disneyland is back, baby!!

Category: Travel

For those of us who have been patiently, or impatiently, waiting to return to The Happiest Place on Earth, that wait is over. Yeah and yay. Disneyland officially reopens with some new additions and many Covid restrictions.

Space is limited and parking will only be every other space, so don’t expect the same experience when you go. But that only serves to make this an even better place to go since the crowd will be controlled.

So, what is new? First of all, the King Arthur Carousel has been repainted and represents the days of olde when knights were jousters and Arthur was king of Camelot. The carousel made its debut in 1955 and is the first thing guests see when they pass through Sleeping Beauty Castle. With upbeat songs from the Disney archive, this is a must see and must do for fans of carousels (and we know who we are) and Disney lovers.

Speaking of Disney lovers, Snow White’s Enchanted Wish has a colorful update as well. Not only are the colors more vibrant, but with new audio and visual technology the entire attraction is also updated. Plus, the storybook ending of “happily ever after” leaves guests with that happy feeling we all expect from this classic tale. The Snow White’s Enchanted Wish attraction is a fun and colorful experience for the entire family.

The Haunted Mansion has some new updates however they are just minor additions and improvements. Why mess with perfection, right?

Later this year something new and exciting will entice guests back to the park when the Avengers Campus opens in Disney California Adventure. This new land will start recruiting super heroes beginning June 4, 2021.

Join Mickey and all his pals for a return to “happy” after this horrible nightmare of Covid. We can all use a little magic and fun and there is no better place to go for fun, food, and fantasy than Disneyland Resort. “The Happiest Place on Earth” is the place to be. It’s time to enjoy your favorite restaurants, attractions, shows, and shops again. With the reopening of the resort, we can definitely say (and sing) “There’s a great big beautiful tomorrow.”
