Okay, I wasn’t invited to the opening of Shanghai Disneyland, but at least other people made it and have some great reporting. I spent a bit of time passing all of the media outlets and found the best examples of people first hand reporting from Disneyland.
Overall, it seemed to go quite well and is quite an indicator of what it might look like in Florida. They kept their lines and distance and people generally seemed to behave. What I really enjoy seeing is that it almost felt “normal”. Could this be our new normal? Going to parks with masks and a bit more extra space?
Can we get through Coronavirus times with just some extra spacing and masks and deal with a virus here and there?
Or do you think this will just explode and shut down everything and the world will end?
What’s your take on Shanghai Disneyland’s opening?

Shanghai Disneyland reopened today! This is most enjoyable reporting that I have EVER done! Nothing could be more delighted than simply seeing smile and love passed between people again, no matter where you come from, how old you are, what culture or political background you have, etc. Everyone standing on this land today believed this world we are seeing now is full joy and hope, which is not necessarily true, but I believe this is what we should always create for this world, no matter where I stand. #disney #shanghaidisneyland

I had the most magical day ever. . . I got to spend my day at the Shanghai Disneyland Grand Re-opening. It was an exciting day filled with tons of change to the park. I was able to capture a lot of my day and I plan to upload a ton of footage to my stories all week. Be sure to check them out every morning for something fun and magical. Today's stories highlight the post COVID-19 changes and some magical shows. . . #AngeliqueMagique #ShanghaiDisneyland #ShanghaiDisneyResort #Shanghai #TaiChiWithCharacter #ChipandDale #DonaldDuck #GoldenFairytaleFanfare #PostCOVID19

Re-opening of #Shanghaidisneyland, some takeaways:
– It was very weird and a lot of fun
– Face masks are prone to slip down on rollercoasters (see pic)
– American Disney executives were the worst at wearing masks properly
– Parades are virtual in the app! pic.twitter.com/qLKEx0vCew

Providing enough space to wander in, Shanghai's version of Fantasyland is a great place to explore. My personal highlight was the updated version of Peter Pan's Flight, which brings a new dimension to the classic ride! #ShanghaiDisneyland pic.twitter.com/eqBfB8bmkh
