PHOTO REPORT: Disneyland Resort 9/7/20 (Labor Day Weekend Crowds, New Posters in the Esplanade, and More!)
Happy Labor Day from Disneyland Resort! As we expected, this weekend was full of dense crowds and hour-long lines for parking, temperature screenings, food, and merchandise. Join us on our latest trip to Downtown Disney to see all the recent happenings and additions on property.
Parking this weekend was a bit more fluid than the last few weekends. While there was still a line of cars sitting down Disneyland Drive, people were slowly shuffled into the Simba Parking lot in an orderly fashion.
When walking towards temperature screenings, we noticed a beverage cart had been brought out to sell water to guests waiting in the heat.
While parking was less of a problem, temperature screenings were a different story. Today, we arrived around 6pm and waited about 25 minutes to enter Downtown Disney, which isn’t terrible.
The line was significantly quieter than the day before. On Sunday, we came around the same time to see a much larger queue of people waiting; let’s take a look.
Most of the parking lot near the temperature screenings entrance was being used as an extended queue on Sunday.
It was surprising to see this whole area empty today around the same time.
Umbrellas were placed along the line for temperature screenings to add some much-needed shade for guests.
Downtown Disney District
Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen added two greenery walls to help block out the sun for guests dining on the outdoor patio. People were also using it to snap some fun pictures.
The Disney Home Store had about an hour and a half wait.
This store seems to usually have one of the longer waits due to its lower in-store capacity.
This new Black Widow poster can be found directly next to the 31 Nights of Halloween poster.
Always have to stop and say hello to Disneyland!
Along with the posters, a few new billboards can be seen from the entrance of Disney’s California Adventure. On the far right, a Pixar Soul advertisement has been added. Replacing the Hamilton billboard, you can see a portion of the newly added Mulan poster to the left.
On the far left, you can see half of the new Black Widow billboard.
As it got later in the night, guests continued to make their way over to the park entrances for a last bit of Disney magic.
Downtown Disney District – Night
Outside Salt & Straw, groups sat in socially distanced areas to enjoy a sweet treat.
Catal’s Uva Bar & Cafe closed right after at 8 pm.
Even as the night went on, the crowd level stayed the same.
There was a duck party outside Tortilla Jo’s tonight! Looks like we aren’t the only ones over this heat wave.
On the way out, a Cast Member tested our knowledge with some fun Pixar Trivia! Do you know any?
