Before closing versus reopening day.

According to CNN, the park operated at less than the reduced 30 percent capacity, and the number of cast members actually outnumbered the guests.

Guests were required to buy these limited tickets in advance.

Visitors must undergo a temperature check before entering.

They also must scan their “Health QR Code,” which flashes red, yellow, or green depending on the individual’s exposure to the virus. Only those with a green code will be allowed into the park.

All guests are required to wear masks at all times (except while dining).

Which will inevitably lead to some different Disneyland selfies.

Markers on the ground encourage social distancing in line and on rides.

No more getting bumped in line by someone standing too close behind you!

Even shows have pre-measured squares for safe viewing.

However, parades and other nighttime events are still closed until the park can ensure proper social distancing.

And the park is undergoing more frequent sanitization throughout the day.

None of these restrictions seemed to put a damper on the guests’ joy, however, as cast members lined up to welcome them into the park.

People were so excited that announcements to “walk, not run” had to be played over the speakers.

^Us literally jumping for joy when it’s finally safe enough for the other parks to reopen.

As of now, no other Disney parks are scheduled to reopen any time soon, but when they do, they could look a lot like this.

Mask or no mask, we still think this is the happiest place on Earth!

Now please excuse me while I patiently wait for the US parks to reopen…
