Where Oaken's Sliding Sleighs Coaster is going. That's the Small World show building in back.

I wondered what that random elevated path in Tomorrowland was about... That makes a lot more sense now! :lol:

Currently, the theme park is closed due to Coronavirus.
I have seen an IG post of my friend last week wherein there are only a few visitors in the theme park.

In Ocean Park, we found ourselves with large groups of tourists from mainland China, noisy, making out. It wouldn’t be so scary if at some point they didn’t decide that our children are the main attractions of the park. Ignoring all propriety (in fact, the children were sitting in a cafe and eating), they lined up to take pictures with them. They poked their fingers, laughed, amiably amazed, as if they were not children, but monkeys at the zoo eating with chopsticks. In general, it’s strange for me to read about some rides in Ocean Park - I don’t remember any rides. We rode on a cable car, went to the pandas, we liked the evening circus performance - that’s all I can say about this park. But at Disneyland it was completely different: we were there on January 2, very beautiful, everything is so small, fabulous, and very worthy of an evening light show (although we also have a very decent experience with regard to amusement parks).
