Big changes have been happening at the Disneyland Resort. In the just seven weeks since the theme park was allowed to open after a historic 412-day closure, Disneyland has been able to gradually increase capacity, eliminate mask mandates for vaccinated Guests, and reduce its social distancing requirements. And now the theme park has taken another giant step towards a new post-pandemic normal.
As of June 18, entertainment has returned to both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure. Disney Guests took to social media to share their excitement at the return of entertainment to Disneyland Resort — including the Disneyland Band and Citizens of Buena Vista Street.
Wonders of Magic shared a video of Mickey Mouse happily walking down Main Street, U.S.A. as the Disneyland Band played for Guests for the first time in over a year. The band first played in front of the Disneyland Railroad station and then moved down Main Street.
The Disneyland Band is back!???
This morning at 10:45 AM in front of the Disneyland railroad the Disneyland band Perform its first performance of 2021!

Instagram user and Disney fan Denny (@finding_denny) was visiting Disney California Adventure Park when he was able to see the Citizens of Buena Vista Street back in action and looking their best.
The citizens of Buena Vista Street are BACK! These are atmosphere characters, kinda like the ones from DHS
The Citizens of Buena Vista Street are a really fun interaction to have while visiting California Adventure. They talk to Guests about the fun times they have had in Hollywood and, if you’re lucky, they’ll give you some of the latest Hollywood gossip going around.
In addition to characters returning to Buena Vista Street and the Disneyland Band striking up a tune once more, Disneyland Resort officials announced that fireworks would also be returning to the theme park on July 4.
There is no word on when further entertainment like the Dapper Dans or World of Color, as well as Disney stage shows, will be returning to Disneyland Resort.
