Disneyland Resort to Become COVID-19 Vaccine Super Site

The Happiest Place on Earth will soon become the Biggest COVID-19 Vaccination Site in Orange County as new plans for vaccine distribution have been established for California in hopes of lowering transmission rates.

Disneyland Resort in Anaheim will become the Super first Point-of-Dispensing site for COVID-19 vaccines for residents of Orange County, set to vaccinate thousands of residents daily. The site is expected to begin operations later this week alongside other large venues such as Dodger Stadium, which is switching from a COVID-19 testing site to a vaccination site.

Currently, only residents in Phase 1a can receive the vaccine—that is, residents age 75 or older.

Updates on the county’s distribution plan can be found here.

  1. I thought that Disneyland and Disney World were supposedly the few places on earth untouched by the outside world. Well, lately We’ve seen an unsettling amount of worldliness in all things Disney popping up right and left, and poor Walt is perpetually rolling in his grave, poor man. Disney should ever remain neutral in all things no matter where the reigning ‘powers that be’ sympathies may lie, as Disney is not a political stomping ground.
    Families should be able to enjoy a break from the unrest that is all around them while visiting the parks or watching a Disney film.
    I think that vaccine distribution is important for those who wish to get vaccinated, but Disney should never enter into the realm of something so utterly soiled by the misery that has brought it into existence.
    Imagine a family that goes there and gets vaccinated – who knows what kind of effect this virus has had in their personal lives- this automatically ties the thought of Disney with Covid and getting vaccinated. Definitely not a thought I would want running through my head while entering the most magical place on earth.

    • “Politics”? Really? Its a vaccine — get over yourself. Disney has a great infrastructure for this sort of thing — ample parking, drive through garages, expansive open areas that could readily facilitate vaccinations. By doing this they’re contributing back to the community, and hopefully can open up a bit earlier and get back to letting people enjoy the parks. I don’t see how getting a vaccine at a theme park is going to ruin your enjoyment, but if it really does… I feel incredibly sorry for you.

    • Summer, great points! Not sure about the last paragraph there, but I agree with you in that Disney is as political, worldly and biased as your average CNN reporter.

  2. What an absolutely awesome thing for Disney to do. To be associated with the end of the pandemic, even while taking huge hits on their financials from having to keep the parks closed, speaks wonderfully about the civic responsibility that Disney Company tries to foster.

    I don’t know if it would be possible, but wouldn’t it be amazing for folks – particularly kiddos – if some of the characters showed up (socially distanced, of course) to encourage and support the people who come there?

  3. I’m waiting for the WDW News Tonight ad for this service:
    the bees from Tough To Be A Bug singing “we’re vaccinators, we’re vaccinators…”
