This particular trolley ride was one of the last before Disneyland closed its gates to the public for more than a year. I had completely forgotten about this moment. I had forgotten that it had been recorded ...and unshared. To find it now, just weeks before the parks reopen with new safety protocols in place, was to feel like I stumbled on a suspension of worry, a break from the reality that was brewing outside this “Happiest Place on Earth.”
From our vantage point, we glimpse eager guests strolling up and down Main Street, U.S.A. before concerns about lockdowns or mask-wearing. There is a moving significance here. Poignant, even. This place, which unfailingly welcomed thousands of guests, day after day, year after year…suddenly and totally halted by circumstances on the outside.
Now, we are reminded of that privilege, of that unencumbered joy. Perhaps, even, we cherish it more than we did then. Something as simple as a trolley ride ride down Main Street, a scenic journey from Town Square to the charm of Sleeping Beauty Castle; it all means just a little bit more than it did before. In view of that renewed appreciation, we can hope for more mornings like these, and anticipate with resounding gratitude the chance to be here with the magic together, again. 🤗
