Hello Friends! Hope you all are well! So I’m going to keep this short with a few tips. As you all know Places are starting to open up now. Things are slowly getting back to business! The downfall places are opening up a lot different then we know. We got to attend Disneyland California adventure on Sunday for an event , Touch of Disney. It was so nice to be back on Disney grounds. The event was nice, but certain things I noted to help some of you that will be going once opened.
The obvious mask wearing. You all know public places require mask wearing. I’d say if you have a mask that you feel is the most comfortable wear that one. I also packed a second one for all of us. Just in case one gets dirty or hey with kids they might drop them. So definitely carry a spare mask. Hand wipes, tissue and sanitizer is a must, but I’m sure you all carry that already.
Ok so for the things I wish I knew before. I’m not sure if Disney reopening will be similar to the event we attended. But if it is these are the things I wish I knew. First and foremost take a portable charger!!! You use the Disney App so much for mobile ordering now!! My phone died before we even left. And certain food places will not take your food order unless it’s mobile order. So you will need a full charged phone and portable charger. Also make sure more than one person in your party has the App. Just in case your phone is slow. Now this , I’m not sure but if you can bring your own water bottles or the ones you fill up at the water stations do so. The waters are so expensive and with the mask wearing you get way more dehydrated. Also with social distancing finding places to sit may be harder. So if you have a few people with you, have one save a table before you get your food. As for lockers not sure if they will have those available but I would plan accordingly. So find out before going so you don’t carry so much with you. The tram from parking lot, not sure how that will be once it opens , but for the event it wasn’t available, so be prepared to walk about a mile from the lot to the entrance. And to be honest expect big changes and go with an open mind and patience. It’s not going to be the way you remember, but it’s a good feeling to be back and visit Disneyland seriously just enjoy!
Hello my friends! Happy official summer to you all! Congrats mamas! We did it we survived one of the most abnormal school years ever! So now that summer is officially here, the kids I’m sure are restless being we’ve been home for the past 3 months. I’m super aware of what’s going, I’ve been pretty strict these 3 months especially when it comes to the boys. I’m still not that comfortable with venturing out. We even keep seeing family to a limit. It’s just what I feel is right for us and the people I care about.
I feel like now that everything is starting to open we feel a little torn on what is right. All I can say is what I feel is right for me and my family. I don’t judge others on what they decide to do or not. I just think as long as you’re practicing safe measures. Wearing a mask is so important and keeping that 6 feet distance! And wash your hands!!
So with that said I wanted to plan an outing just to feel a little normal and get my boys out of the house. I decided on Aquarium of the pacific. Breaker loves animals, fish and he had never been. David hadn’t been since he was 5. The hubby had never been. I read all their rules and I felt comfortable. You buy tickets online and reserve the day and time! That’s what I liked! We picked a Monday being it would be less crowded. We did 11am time slot perfect for us! We did the entire exhibit in about an hour. We had to wear mask and they had stickers on the floor to show guest how far they should be! I was surprised and happy that everyone was sticking to the rules.
We had a great time, the boys enjoyed it so much and so did we. It was such a calming environment and just let us escape for a bit. Breakers favorite were the sea lions! He even picked a stuffed one to take home and named it sealy pronounced “silly” he thought of that name and I’m here for it. David liked the jelly fish! My favorite were the penguins! Oh they were so cute! They all had colored beads and a chart so you knew the names! Our favorite was Whatever, yes that was the penguins name! Overall just a fun hour away from home! I know it’s scary to venture out right now. But I felt comfortable and we just practiced safe distance and wore mask! The good part is we didn’t have to touch anything! You enjoy with your eyes!
till next post!
P.S we found Dori! By far our family favorite fish!
