PHOTO REPORT: Disneyland Resort 8/1/20 (Weekend Crowds, Extended Dining Area at Tortilla Jo’s, Disposable Face Masks at Temperature Screenings, and More!)
It’s a hot sunny day in Anaheim, and Downtown Disney feels like its getting more and more crowded every day! Join us in checking out the weekend crowds, the extended dining area at Tortilla Jo’s, disposable face masks at temperature screenings, and more!
Over the past few days, parking hasn’t been the most straightforward situation. Immense crowds result in the parking lot not allowing any guests in for a period of time. This only leaves cars circling Disneyland Resort until the lot re-opens. Luckily, around 3 pm today, we were able to pull into the Simba lot, but we did sit stalled for about 15 minutes. Cars slowly filtered in as able to.
Cast Members at temperature screenings offer disposable face masks in Disneyland envelopes if guests need a face-covering that follows the Disneyland Resort protocol.
Marceline’s Confectionery had about a 30 minute wait.
As the temperatures rose in Southern California this weekend, guests were looking for any bit of shade they could find.
Crowds were very high today compared to how they have been over the past two weeks. It felt like a Saturday at Downtown Disney with the parks open.
To enter the virtual queue for World of Disney, you must first wait in line to give a Cast Member your information. Umbrellas were placed right outside the tram loading station to give shade to Cast Members and guests waiting in the sun.
With La Brea Bakery still being closed, a few of their umbrellas were placed in the Esplanade to offer some extra shade.
Once texted, we made our way to the regular outdoor queue.
If you want to bring home something small from your trip to Downtown Disney, there is a pressed penny machine located inside the World of Disney.
The three options are Pooh, Dumbo, and Pinocchio, hanging out next to the Disneyland Resort logo.
