See Disneyland as You’ve Never Seen It Before: Completely Empty
With the novel coronavirus spreading through California, Disneyland in Anaheim closed its gates on March 14, 2020. It marked the park's fourth closure since opening day, and now approaching week five, it's the longest one by far. You may not be able to experience this bizarre moment in theme park history in person, but as Time Out reports, you can explore Disney's abandoned attractions from your computer.
This aerial video shot by KABC Los Angeles depicts Disneyland in the age of COVID-19. Main Street has become a ghost town. Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, which reached max capacity within an hour of its grand opening less than a year ago, is now empty in the middle of the day. You can watch the footage below.
While guests may never see the park this desolate in real life, dense crowds at Disney may still be a rarity when it eventually reopens. When Disney partially reopened its Shanghai resort in March, capacity was limited, temperatures were taken upon entry, and masks were mandatory except for meals.
If you'd rather be transported to a Disneyland that's bustling with life, you can do that from your computer as well. Here are some virtual ride tours you can watch to bring some Disney magic into your living room.
