We are just under a week away from the reopening of Buena Vista Street at the Disneyland Resort! Join us as we navigate the Saturday crowds and look for new merchandise and decorations around the Downtown Disney District.


When we arrived at the Simba Parking Lot, we were directed to speak with a Cast Member at the toll booth regarding the upcoming parking changes for the reopening of Buena Vista Street.

We arrived a little after 10am on Saturday morning and did not have to wait long to park or get through the temperature screening and security check.

Lines, Lines, and More Lines

While it is no surprise to us that the weekends are busier at the Disneyland Resort, it is worth noting that even a little after 10am, multiple shopping locations had long lines to enter. Some stores such as World of Disney, Marceline’s Confectionery, and Disney Home were already utilizing Virtual Waitlists before 11am.
