Today is a momentous day for Anaheim California! One year ago, the world shut down to a worldwide pandemic, and Disneyland and California Adventure said “See You Real Soon”. No one ever imagined that Disneyland Resort would be in a complete standstill for this long.

Now the wait is finally over!

Today, hundreds of Disney fans are currently waiting in line to enter Disneyland Park for the first time in over a year! Anaheim Mayor Harry Sidhu shared some words today on Disneyland’s reopening and how it affects his beloved city.

A monumental day for Disneyland

Although the maximum operating capacity is at 25%, this is a huge step forward for the state of California. Disneyland has become a huge force in the economy of California and Anaheim Mayor Harry Sidhu taps more into that stating small businesses and many families have been enormously affected by this pandemic.

Today on Instagram, the official Instagram account for the city of Anaheim @ city_of_anaheim quotes Harry Sidhu and his love for this Disney Park in Orange County as he states,

This is a monumental day for Anaheim. We have all missed the joy of Disneyland, and we’re so glad to have that back.

But this means so much more to working families, small businesses, and our city.

The impact of having the theme parks closed for more than 13 months due to the pandemic has been devastating.

This begins our economic recovery and brings hope back to Anaheim.
