Slowly but surely, plans to ease us back into some kind of productive post-coronavirus live is continuing to edge along as California Governor Gavin Newsom approves the second stage of plans to reopen shops, including some in Downtown Disney at Disneyland Anaheim.

The new rules set in place will allow for more indoor activities, including dining inside of restaurants and visiting enclosed shopping malls. Outdoor museums and “limited personal services,” including tanning salons, car washes, and pet groomers, also fall under the Stage 2 category.

“This change marks a major shift to normalcy after two months of staying at home to curb the coronavirus pandemic,” according to the Orange County Register.

20th May saw parts of Disney Springs reopen, and this might see parts of Downtown Disney resume some kind of modified trading, but with Celebration Anaheim only 92 days away and as yet no further word on the status of the event, with people tightening their belts whilst furloughed and understandably nervous to travel in the current climate – certainly from outside the States, if there are even any flights to book – the event taking place this year seems increasingly unlikely. Today saw the shifting back of The High Republic launch which would have occurred the week of Celebration and would surely have been a focal point of the event. We continue to wait and see.
