The "Happiest Place on Earth" is slowly making a comeback, but things are a bit different. Downtown Disney District in Anaheim recently reopened to long lines, one parking lot, and tons of shoppers. It looks like people are flocking to it and the photos tell-all.\nUsing a phased approach, the Disney shopping district welcomed guests back on Thursday, July 9. However, several changes were put in place following the health and safety measures provided by the CDC and government agency officials.\nA total of 25 retail stores and restaurants opened, including the World of Disney, California Churro, Disney's Pin Traders, and more.\nIf you happened to skip the district's reopening launch, there were six fundamental changes that you could've expected.\nOnly the Simba parking lot is available, and for now, parking is free. That's only temporary, though.\nTemperature screenings and face coverings for people over the age of two are required for everyone. Additionally, social distancing measures were to be followed, and there were signs around to remind anyone who forgot.\nMany people shared their Downtown Disney moments on social media, and the photos showed a lot!\nView this post on Instagram That is a no from me dawg!! This is the current situation at the Simba Parking Lot entrance into Downtown Disney for temperature and security checks!!! • We waited the line for less than 10 minutes, and we just didn’t feel comfortable being surrounded by so many people in a slow-moving crowd. HOWEVER I will say the Cast Members were very vocal and consistently enforcing the physical distancing measures of 6ft apart, and that all Guests were correctly wearing their masks. Cast Members even had speakers to enhance their voice so everyone could hear without them having to be physically closer. It is your risk to come to Downtown Disney, and signs at the entrance remind you of this. • So for me this was not worth the risk, when I know there were times earlier this week that you could just walk right in. We will try another day with less crowding. Thank you to all the Cast Members working hard to keep the environment safe for Guests choosing to come. 🙏🏻🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 . . #disneyland #downtowndisney #disney #dlr #disneyparks #abc7eyewitness #abc #disneygram #igdisneyland A post shared by FIVE FIRES (@thecalibae) on Jul 12, 2020 at 6:30pm PDT\nOne Instagram user shared an image of the line from the Simba parking lot to the entrance.\n"This is the current situation at the Simba Parking Lot entrance into Downtown Disney for temperature and security checks!!!" she wrote in the caption.\nView this post on Instagram This was the line to sign up for the virtual queue line at Downtown Disney District.

Snaps like these seem practically impossible to take, but given the new safety measures, they are no longer a thing of the past.\nThe magic is returning, and you can experience it like never before.
