If you''re not a die-hard Disney (DIS) - Get Walt Disney Company Reportfan, you may not know that everything is still not 100% back to pre-pandemic normal, judging by crowds and maskless faces, the closures seen in 2020 and 2021 are now all but a distant memory.

As cases dropped and health restrictions decreased, guests were even permitted to start hugging Mickie, Minnie, and Elsa once more.

While rides and character meetings in Orlando and Anaheim are operating at full speed, those who know the parks closely know that a number of Disney experiences were difficult to resume following shutdowns.

Species and fine dining are among those in which guests may still see the effects of the covid-19 epidemic, as long training periods and a large number of employees make them difficult to start and restart on awhim.

In some instances, Disney decided to put an end to reopening so that it may be difficult to stop and restarting following new developments.

Halloween Is Not As Far Away As You Think

"During this fall, ghosts and ghouls of all ages are invited to don their favorite costumes and remember all the dangers present during the Mickeys Not-So-Scary Halloween Party," Disney said in a blog post.

For the most part, the event will follow tradition: trick-or-treating for the littles, Disney characters in Halloween costumes, Mickey''s Halloween Parade, and a special Halloween themed light show hosted by Jack Skellington. This year''s signature treat will be hot chocolate in a cauldron with an image of the three sisters from "Hocus Pocus" on the foam.

The event is a popular event among Disney fans, who as soon as news of its arrival became public, elicited a high level of satisfaction. Disney also confirmed the return of Halloween on the High Seas at Disney Cruise Line. The only significant difference from previous years will be capacity levels due to the epidemic.

Tickets for the Not-So-Scary Halloween Party are separate from the usual admission to Disney parks and will range from$109 to $199.

Did The Pandemic Even Happen?

Disney World and Disneyland both closed their doors in March 2020 after covid-19 had struck the United States, so the two had to change it gradually. Florida''s conservative leadership and lax laws meant that Disney World might reopen much sooner than Disneyland.

According to a survey by the Themed Entertainment Association and AECOM, the 25 most important parks in the country, including Disneyland, Disney World, and Universal Studios, fell by 67% between 2019 and 2020.

Though many people are hesitant to lockdowns and stay-at-home orders, attendance at Disney parks rose to pre-pandemic levels almost immediately after doors reopened, and average expenditure at all Disney parks also increased by 30%.

"Vaccine growth, pent-up demand, and pandemic-driven cost efficiencies prepare the parks segment for a solid return in FY22 and record profit in FY23," said a report byUBS analyst John Hodulik.
