I'm really surprised to learn that the McDonald's on Harbor remains closed now and even more shocked that it closed at all. There still has to be plenty of traffic on Harbor to support this business. Many fast-food restaurants have done surprisingly well with drive-thru sales throughout the pandemic. While many Americans have opted out of dining in, they are still dining out.
The Anaheim Resort District is really kind of cut off from the rest of the world. It's amazing how the traffic dies off once you enter the Resort area, but go a mile east past the freeway and the traffic picks back up again. Of course there are several other McDonald's and Starbucks and businesses that are aimed at the residents in those areas around the Resort District.
But the Resort District itself is an island of abandoned businesses and a closed community. I could walk right out into the middle of Harbor Blvd. in late afternoon and take this photo because there was simply no cars and no people; but once I drove home towards Villa Park the traffic picked up and life returned to normal a mile east of here...
I took this photo the same day about 30 minutes after I took that photo above. This is my local supermarket, which I took a picture of as I stopped in for some groceries because it was a notable change after feeling like The Last Man On Earth when I walked around Disneyland earlier. People, shoppers, cars, traffic, normal suburban life just a few miles east and a few minutes after I visited an abandoned Anaheim Resort District.
