I'm Both Amazed And Disgusted By The Line To Get Into Disneyland Yesterday


Tuesday, June 15, was a special day in California. The state officially allowed businesses to reopen to full capacity, and the mask mandate was lifted. Here is Governor Gavin Newsom randomly celebrating this new chapter with some Trolls, Minions, and Optimus Prime:

Tangentially, this meant that Disneyland no longer required its fully vaccinated guests to wear masks. And on top of that, they welcomed out-of-staters back to the park for the first time in over a year. Ya know what that means?


LINES. RIDICULOUSLY LONG LINES. The following video of a seemingly endless queue outside the park went viral on TikTok yesterday, and it's honestly quite painful to watch:


I saw this on @kellerzzzz stories this morning and HAD to share 🤯

In case you were wondering, the temperature had a high of 95 degrees in Anaheim yesterday. And yes, that appears to be thousands of people packed like sardines, waiting to go meet even more sweaty sardines inside the theme park.

These people are willingly living out my worst nightmare.

Another video shows the line from a closer perspective, and people were literally standing in the street. If you've ever been exposed to LA drivers, you know that's basically a death wish.


Maybe it's not as bad as it looks? Awww who am I kidding, I'd still go! #disneyparks #disneyland #june15 #california #disney #disneyfan #fyp

The TikTok user who posted the original video, @krystaleverdeen (a self-proclaimed "Disney Maven"), noted that many of the people standing in line probably didn't realize that Disneyland still required reservations because of high demand. This means that most of the people waiting were likely turned away.

Reservation or not, you couldn't pay me to wait in that line. Would you?
