Face Masks now Required in Anaheim Citywide anaheim face masks

Anaheim has now issued a citywide face mask requirement for when people are in public. The Anaheim requirement makes state guidance for wearing face coverings mandatory in Anaheim and went into effect yesterday, June 30.

The order requires the use of face masks:

  • Inside and in line for any indoor public space
  • At any healthcare setting
  • Using public transit or rideshare
  • At workplaces in common areas
  • For any food service, packaging or distribution
  • In any room or enclosed area where you’re unable to distance from those outside your own household.
  • Outside when within six feet of others

Those with special considerations are exempt, and face coverings are not required in certain situations:

  • Children younger than 2
  • Those with health, mental or developmental considerations
  • Those who face workplace risks from wearing a face covering
  • Medical treatments where removal is necessary
  • While eating or drinking
  • While exercising outdoors or indoors when distanced from others
  • While working outdoors when distanced
  • Those who are incarcerated

Disneyland will be following city and state guidelines when the theme parks reopen. All cast members and guests age 2 and older will be required to wear face masks when visiting the Disneyland Resort.

California Governor Shuts Down all Bars, Restaurants and More

The following business are impacted by this decision:

  • Restaurants

  • Family Entertainment Centers
  • Zoos and Museums
  • Cardrooms
  • Bars (must close all operations)

The Office of the Governor of California posted on Twitter today:

#COVID19 cases are spreading at alarming rates in some CA counties.

Effective immediately, @CAPublicHealth is requiring counties that have been on the County Monitoring List for at least 3 days to move certain sectors outdoors or close.

Arendelle Aqua Punch is a Summer Treat at Disney Springs

Arendelle Aqua Punch is a Summer Treat at Disney Springs Arendelle Aqua Punch

Are you ready to head ”Into the Unknown”? If you don’t know already, we’re talking about a drink that would satisfy Queen Elsa herself: Arendelle Aqua Punch! This drink is available at The Daily Poutine at Disney Springs, so whether you are in the mood for some fries or just looking to cool down, this is a great time to stop over!

Arendelle Aqua Punch is a Summer Treat at Disney Springs

The beverage is an adults-only alcoholic cocktail, so don’t get your kids too excited about the pretty new Elsa drink (think Olaf’s ”When I’m older”). It’s filled with Coconut Rum, Peach Schnapps, Blue Curaçao, and fresh fruit juices. The taste is very light overall, almost like a flavored lemonade, and it is very fruity! It’s not overly sweet, nor does it taste heavily of alcohol. The abundance of ice makes it a great choice for cocktail-lovers who also want a reprieve from Orlando’s summer heat (”Some Things Never Change”). Olaf would approve.

The most fun part about this drink may just be the marble effect that it has. Though tricky to catch in photographs, the Arendelle Aqua Punch is shiny like a calming bottle and the color is bright blue, giving the impression that it mimics Elsa’s famous dress. This is definitely one for your Instagram account!

Try the Arendelle Aqua Punch over at The Daily Poutine in Disney Springs! It’s got coconut rum, blue curaçao, and fresh fruit juices, besides which it’s a beautiful color! #disneysprings #disneylife #waltdisneyworld #chipandco

The drink costs $13 before tax and is a great icy treat for anyone over 21. Head on over to Disney Springs and enjoy responsibly!

DVC Moonlight Magic events cancelled for 2020

DVC Moonlight Magic events cancelled for 2020 Moonlight Magic

The Walt Disney company released an update to let DVC members know that the rest of this year’s Moonlight Magic events will be canceled. Disney Vacation Members were notified months ago that the previous Moonlight Magic event nights would be delayed until this summer. The rescheduled dates were listed for the months of June through August, but now Disney confirms how we won’t see the DVC events return at all for 2020.

We have attended some of these Moonlight Magic events in the past and they were quite a blast! You can read the following description to see what was offered during these DVC events:

Enjoy an evening of enchantment, entertainment and more as a theme park becomes your playground.

During a Moonlight Magic event, Members can visit a select theme park for an after-hours celebration. While attendees may get a jump start on the fun by mixing in with the regular crowd earlier in the evening, the real magic happens after the park has closed to the public.

It’s then that privileged partiers can:

  • Enjoy shorter-than-usual wait times on popular attractions
  • Meet some Disney Characters
  • Savor complimentary refreshments
  • Let loose at high-energy dance parties

Hopefully we will return to see these event nights in 2021!
