Disneyland plans on reopening on July 17th, which also happens to be its 65th anniversary. While this may be good news to some, others worry that it’s too soon—even if they lower the capacity of the theme park.
Assuming that the reopening will go as planned (it’s currently pending government approval), it’s important that all guests follow the proper safety procedures at the resort. For one thing, you want to keep your distance between other park-goers.
What else can you do to protect yourself while you’re at Disneyland during the Coronavirus pandemic? That’s what we’ll be talking about below—so be sure to read the rest of the post!
4 Tips For Those Planning on Going to Disneyland After its Reopening
Let’s face it, Disneyland isn’t going to be the same experience with everything that’s going on with the Coronavirus. That doesn’t mean that you can’t have fun while you’re there, though.
Here are a few things to keep in mind to ensure the safety of yourself and those around you.
1. Wash Your Hands Often
Making an effort of washing your hands often while at the park. Considering that, you might want to familiarize yourself with the restroom locations.
The way you wash your hands matter as well. In other words, don’t just wave your hands in the sink for a few seconds—you’re going to have to do more than that.
Lather your hands with soap and wash for at least 20 seconds, paying extra attention to your fingertips and thumb area.
2. Hand Sanitizer Is Your Friend
You’re not always going to be able to wash your hands at the sink. For that reason, you want to make sure to bring hand sanitizer with you—it’s the next best thing when it comes to sanitizing your hands.
Ideally, you want to keep it somewhere accessible. For example, you can get a hand sanitizer keyring. That way, you can use it without having to dig your hands into your pocket or bag.
3. Wear a Mask
I know, I know, masks aren’t the most comfortable things to wear but they can make a big difference when it comes to protecting you against the virus. In fact, it’s mandatory to wear a mask in LA when you go outside.
Of course, that applies to Disneyland as well.
For maximum protection, make sure that you wear the mask properly over your mouth and nose. Do not pull it down under your chin under any circumstances—that will render it useless.
4. Maintain Your Distance
Disneyland is going to be less crowded than before. Unfortunately, that in itself won’t be enough—you’ll also have to do your part with social distancing.
Lining up for a ride? Make sure that you’re at least 6 feet away from the people in front of and behind you. The same thing goes when you’re inside the restaurants and stores.
As it is, Disneyland will most likely have markings on the ground to let you know where exactly to stand. Unfortunately, it’s unknown how it’ll work with character greetings, at least for now.
Remember, just because Disneyland plans on reopening doesn’t mean that everyone should rush to the park. Ideally, we want to wait until the situation resolves before planning our vacations.
With that said, if you must go to the park, make sure to consider the things that we’ve mentioned above. If anything, Disneyland will probably make most of them mandatory as part of government protocols.
