As things return to normal at Disney Parks worldwide, an exclusive experience will finally make its way back into Disneyland!

Disney Parks worldwide were strongly affected by the strike of the COVID-19 pandemic, as was the entire world. From the different complications to travel across the country and internationally to the extended closures at the Parks, canceled and modified experiences, and several measures being implemented and modified across Disney Parks and Resorts, the effects of the pandemic can still be felt when visiting the Happiest Place on Earth.
