Today, we got to Disneyland Resort around 5:00 pm. All parking was directed to the Simba Parking lot. Cars sat stalled for a moment as capacity was very high already. This has been a problem since opening a few days ago.

We walked to the entrance near the Disneyland Hotel on the west end of Downtown Disney to get our temperatures checked. Markers have been placed on the ground near the tents to keep a safe distance between guests waiting in line.

It was nice to be back in the Esplanade today. Seeing guests walk between the gates of Disneyland and Disney California Adventure today reminded us of a quiet day of park operations.
