A Day in the World’s Only Open Disneyland Park

Disney opened its Shanghai Disneyland Resort touting new measures to ensure the safety of its visitors. But not all of its guests are following the guidelines.

“There wasn’t a lot of caution on the part of park-goers, in my opinion,” said Michelle Lee, a Shanghai Disneyland annual pass holder who visited the park after its re-opening. “I was on rides with people who had taken their masks off.”

The Shanghai park now requires visitors to reserve a ticket in advance, practice social distancing, and wear masks while not eating. The park also only allows visitors who have a green health code, meaning they are in good health and haven’t come into contact with an infected person.

So why does China and its buyers adore Tesla so much? Well, with the money China stands to make off the new Gigafactory, the boost Tesla could give the country’s struggling car industry, and the pedestal China puts EVs on, it could be a match made in heaven.
