Aw, maybe next time with a little more of a heads up 😜 It’ll only take me a few days detour with a few breaks; not bad! Maybe Disneyland would be open by then 😂
If you drive straight through it’s about 15 hours with a few shortish stops along the way. The way up won’t be terrible, but I’m not going to lie, when you being me home and make the return journey it’s going to be hellish lol

Ugh. 15 hours in one shot? You are either superhuman, or a sadist.

My speed record from driving from SoCal to Oregon is two days max; with an overnight in Redding. My preference for the straight shot up I-5 is three days, with lunch at Pea Soup Andersen's in Santa Nella and a detour and stop in the Bay Area the first day, then a long day of driving with lunch at the Nut Tree and an overnight in Ashland, then a late breakfast and some shopping in Ashland with an early evening arrival in Portland, with at least two days in Portland of Powell's Books and Ringside Steakhouse and a late cabaret at Darcelle XV before a quick final burst up I-5 to Seattle. I purposely hit Seattle 5pm traffic so I can be in gridlock on the Evergreen Floating Bridge to get to the east side of the lake, just because that's such a unique commute. So I guess that's 6 days total to get from Villa Park, CA to Bellevue, WA.

If I take the scenic route along the coast, add a week.

Lol that’s a lot of paid time off from work! To be honest, I’ve only ever done the drive to Disneyland two or three times I think? Once or twice with me and my husband splitting the drive time, and once when my brother came with us and did all the driving. The way down is always waaayyy better. Everyone is energetic and excited to get to Disneyland !!!! We are chatting about what we will do at the parks and listening to Disney songs and singing along like the picture perfect family. The way home with everyone exhausted from days spent in the park and a couple of moody toddlers in the back (which should tell you how long it’s been since I’ve attempted to make the drive since those toddlers are now 16 1/2 and almost 13) and before long you start losing your grip on reality and make desperate, anxiety pacts with yourself in muttered whispers as you slowly rock back and forth in the car that you’ll never make the drive again and stick to flying. Which is what we have been doing for over ten years now. 😀

I know this phenomenon. I love driving to Vegas..but every time I drive home, I swear I'm flying and never doing this again.

I did that drive once on a Sunday and it was just a traffic jam. It could all be taken care of by building a giant rest area or making the exit 3 miles away so all the cars can wait on a side road. Once we got past the rest area, it was busy but moved just fine. RIP to our tickets on the Christmas boat parade that night.

If anyone wants to prepare for the reopening that will happen at sometime, I highly recommend watching “A pre-opening report from Disneyland” on Disney+. It is the original 1955 report on the Disneyland TV series with Walt. Beautiful to see the park being built with real footage from the Disney company.

...and we're off the county watch list after falling below the threshold for the third day running! Yay.

I imagine California's warming up to reopening the parks soon, though I personally still don't see it happening for the next few weeks or months. We'll see what happens to the numbers if schools open in-person.

I'm guessing the state will say something about theme parks within the next couple of weeks at the latest, especially if trends continue the way they are (and they most likely will).
How short our memories have become. The last time we started opening things up cases and hospitalizations surged and things shut down again. How long are we going to keep doing this? Do we expect different results this time? Why?

Wasn't there a weak mask recommendation at the last opening up?

This time there will be a strong mask mandate. When the NY tristate starting opening up, we retained a strong mask mandate and it's been keeping positivity under 2%.

Yes, because we aren't having a bunch of protests and riots with no social distancing or masks. Of course it isn't PC to say that was the cause of the spikes, but based on the timing and other states, we know it wasn't reopening things that was the cause, we know the spikes have happened where the protests and riots were happening.

What spike?

NY had a lot of protests. But it also had a strict regimen for the whole state to be distancing and mask-wearing.

Also, some of the Southern states where things have been spiking were not places with widespread protests.

Contravening evidence means your hypothesis is false.

Were some of the protestors reckless in not wearing masks and could there have been a super spreader incident? Sure.

Is there evidence that happened every time? No.

Also, after the initial protests, many, many of the following protests had almost everyone masked. The protesters weren't protesting the scientific consensus.

Well, New York killed everyone up front, so they got that going for them.

Everything you posted is nonsense. Stop it.
