Here's Why You May Not Be Able Scream At Disneyland When It Opens April 30


Great news for Disneyland fans yesterday! The park announced it would officially be reopening Disneyland and California Adventure to California residents on April 30th. Capacity will be limited to 15%, but there is one more restriction that could be implemented...

A group called the California Attractions and Parks Association is recommending that theme park visitors should "limit activities that are known to cause increased spread" like singing, shouting, heavy breathing and raising one's voice.

No screaming on thrill rides? How is that even going to be possible? It's understandable in the age of COVID as all these activities could spread droplets, but still. Along with the no-screaming recommendation, CAPA's "blueprint criteria" includes face coverings, social distancing, limited capacity and optimizing ventilation in parks. 

Note that this is a recommendation at this point, and Disneyland has not issued any statements or rules about screaming at Disneyland when it opens April 30th.
