We previously announced a proposed phased reopening of our theme parks for July 17, pending government approvals. We developed enhanced health and safety protocols for both cast and guests at Shanghai Disney Resort, Hong Kong Disneyland Resort and . . .
The Mature MouseTM had planned a visit to Disneyland Resort in July. Unfortunately, COVID spoiled those plans, and the plans of many Disney fans. Disneyland Resort has recently released plans for reopening. Although I am waiting to visit Disneyland or Walt Disney World until there is a vaccine, I am sure many of you will be rushing to the parks, and I cannot blame you.

The Mature Mouse™ is scheduled for a trip to Disneyland in July. Even if the park is open by then, and given all the precautions mentioned in this article, unless there is a vaccine, I will not be going to a Disney park this year.
What are your thoughts about returning to Disney Parks?
The Mature Mouse™ has been quiet for some time. My apologies. I plan to post more in the new year. There has been a lot of changes happening in Walt Disney World, and I will be discussing them in the future. And, there are still things I wanted to talk about from my April 2018 trip.
Today, however, I wanted to share some exciting news: The Mature Mouse™ is heading to Disneyland in July. As you might have read in my first blog, posted years ago, my first trip to Disneyland happened back in 1970, at the age of 12, during Disneyland’s 15th anniversary. It is 50 years later, I am 62, and Disney is turning 65.
I will keep you updated on my planning, as well as the trip itself. Please share your experiences and tips for the Disneyland Resort.
