This is Naomi Elephant Tour.
We are pleased to inform you that immigration documents to be submitted by customers arriving at LAX related to Corona are now required.
This rule was issued on November 27/2020.
It is a document to the effect that you will comply with the rules of Los Angeles when you enter the country. It seems that customers can apply in advance from the website or use their mobile phones after arriving in Los Angeles.
All you need is a simple phone number, name, email address, etc.
I think it would be nice to let people from Japan know in advance.
However, as the laws and regulations change frequently, changes may occur.
You will not forget it because the staff will ask you when you enter Japan, but be careful as the fine is $ 500.
If you read the beginning of the document, you can enter the country for essential travelers such as study, work and medical care.
However, out-of-state and international migrants, including residents, need to be quarantined for 14 days.
We are currently unable to accept visits such as travel and outdoor recreation.
It may be time to put up with it to stop the infection around the world.
Access to Buena Vista Street in California Adventure Park has explored Disneyland Resort (Anaheim), which opened on November 19/2020. Only the dining and shopping area is open and no rides are driven. Admission is free as it is released as an extension of Downtown Disney. This time is Sunday, the last day of Thanksgiving. I went first in the morning, but I didn't line up until the entrance. If you want to try it, we recommend you to have an early time.
Despite going quite early, there were already lines in the park and at Downtown Disney's souvenir shops.
Cathay Circle Restaurant is already full of reservations until January.
Although the infection was spreading, it was crowded with the love of local Disney. A lot of Christmas trees are displayed and the holiday feeling is perfect. I have enjoyed a walk safely while keeping the distance from other people, the mask, and the hand washing.
At the same time, even more stringent corona measures have been implemented in California from November 30th today.
Especially in Los Angeles, outdoor eating and drinking outside the store is also prohibited.
In the same California, Orange County, with Anaheim, continues to eat and drink outdoors. The actual situation is that even in the same state, there are variations depending on the municipality.
In any case, I would like you to continue to do your best until the park is fully released.
Today 11/18 is Disneyland's Mickey Mouse and Minnie's birthday!
It seems that ceremonies are being held in various places, but the Disney Resort park in Anaheim is still closed.
Meanwhile, measures to strengthen infection prevention were announced in California.
Effective Friday, November 20th https://covid19.lacount…
The average of COVID-19 cases over the last 7 days has almost doubled since the beginning of November, and hospitalizations have increased to well over an average of about 900 to 1,000 per day over the same period.
• For non-essential businesses that are allowed to operate indoors, such as retail stores, offices, and personal care services, occupancy is limited to 25% of maximum capacity.
• The number of patrons in outdoor restaurants, breweries and wineries is limited to 50% of the maximum outdoor capacity.
• Services at personal care facilities are available only to customers who are wearing face covers by staff wearing face covers. Facials and shavings are not allowed.
If the average number of cases in the county for 5 days is more than 4,500 or the number of hospitalizations exceeds 2,000 per day, the following restrictions will be added. Curfew will begin until 10 pm and 6 am, and restaurants will be banned from eating and drinking outdoors again.
I hope that the measures at the water's edge will be successful.
Local information update from elephant tour https://www.elephanttou…
Business conditions of commercial facilities near Los Angeles https://www.elephanttou…
Disney will open Buena Vista Street from 11/19/2020.
Information on the spread of COVI19 has been reported around the world.
In California, USA, Governor Newsom announced a two-week voluntary quarantine for visitors from outside the state. There are no fines, but they convey the severity of the situation. By the way, even before Independence Day, the beach was strictly prohibited from entering, so I think it is a preventive measure in anticipation of the coming holiday season.
Even if you can't eat or drink in-store at all in Los Angeles, you can usually eat and drink in-store in San Diego County in the same state of California, and the rules are different for each county. Los Angeles continues to be under strict rules, so it's likely that other counties will raise regulations.
In such a lonely situation, we received a notice that Disneyland will open Buena Vista Street, which is an area where you can eat and shop in California Adventure, from November 19/2020 on November 5/2020.
It's not the opening of the park, but an extension of downtown Disney in the shopping area, but as a Disney fan, it's exciting to think that you can get closer to the garden.
The following shops can be enjoyed in the Buena Vista area.
Carthay Circle Lounge --Alfresco Dining> Classic American dining. It is a high-grade restaurant where you can enjoy steak and wine.
Fiddler, Fifer & Practical Cafe ＞ Delicious American hamburger shop
This shop boasts plump and crispy hot dogs.
Award Wieners Elias & Co.> A souvenir shop full of Disney goods.
Trolley Treats> A sweets specialty store with lots of American candies and treats.
I hope it will open safely on the 19th.
Did you know that zoo-related activities are open while theme parks such as Disneyland are still closed?
Los Angeles Zoo too! !!
Aquarium on Long Beach also requires a limited time ticket, but admission is possible.
Meanwhile, we would like to inform you about the deals of Sea World in San Diego. For a limited time, if you purchase an annual pass this year, you will be able to enter from 2020 to the end of 2021 for a one-time admission fee of $ 93.99. As with Aquarium, the admission is currently reserved in advance, so although there are some restrictions, it is a nice deal for fans.
I hope that various activities will come back one after another!
Celebration Los Angeles Dodgers wins World Series! !!
At the same time as the victory was decided, the sound of fireworks echoed throughout the city, celebrating the feat for the first time in 32 years.
For the past few years, I have been crying with regret, as the team has the ability, but I couldn't show my ability in the World Series, and the opponent team stole the signature in the decisive battle last year. For that reason, the joy of not only the players but also the local hot fans is great. The happy smile of the car show pitcher staring at the winning trophy is dazzling!
The car show has won the Cy Young Award three times in total, and although it usually has a pretty cool image, yesterday was a big smile!
Other team members are also talented.
Thank you for the good news that will blow away the melancholy of the coronavirus. This year, the Lakers of the basket also won the championship, and it was an unforgettable year coupled with the feat of the Dodgers.
I hope we can support you with our customers next season.
The most popular attraction in Los Angeles is that the theme parks, each with its own unique characteristics, are gathered in close proximity!
It has been half a year since attractions around the world closed their doors due to the influence of the coronavirus.
As attractions around the world are making progress in reopening efforts in consideration of the risk of corona infection, here in California, the protocol rules for opening the park submitted by the state government are very strict. Almost all attractions have not been reopened.
Both your favorite Disneyland Resort and Knott's Berry Farm with cute Snoopy have their doors closed tightly.
Meanwhile, the California Attractions and Theme Park Association (commonly known as CAPA), to which many theme parks belong, has requested each association to cooperate in signing activities.
This is a signature for California Governor Newsom to request the reopening of the theme park. The spread of corona infections around the world is very serious, but the current situation of theme park closures may be wasting not only the economy but also the opportunity to make memories of the family and precious time. It is a heartfelt appeal.
I hope that everyone's voice will be taken up and the theme park will be reopened in a safe manner.
Nice to meet you! My name is Naomi from the Elephant Tour and I will send you information about Los Angeles on the west coast of the United States. It's already been 30 years since I came to Los Angeles.
I look forward to working with you.
The first post is downtown Los Angeles as seen from the Dodgers stadium parking lot. The sky is good in California! !!
I would like to occasionally upload nice sky photos to match the Los Angeles information.
