    By TIM REYNOLDS, AP Basketball Writer The 22 teams participating in the NBA restart were all at the Disney campus together for the first time Friday. None of them, however, made it to the Orlando, Florida area with their usual travel party. Leaving families behind for several weeks — or maybe even three months, depending on how deep a team goes in the playoffs — during a pandemic isn’t the only hardship that teams are dealing with during this restart. Space limitations within the quasi-bubble at Disney also meant that teams had to cut their official traveling parties down to 37 personnel, including players, so many people who usually travel with a club aren’t on this trip. “We’re not able...

It also has Jeffrey Wright in the purpose of detective or law enforcement commissioner James Gordon. HBO Max states the sequence will be “established in the environment Reeves is producing for The Batman feature movie and will construct on the motion...
    ORLANDO, Fla. – Walt Disney World is set to once again open its gates to the Magic Kingdom following a lengthy closure due to the coronavirus pandemic. But with most families staying inside and not traveling, how crowded will the theme parks really be when they reopen? We’ll take a guess at the figures -- but first, a little background: Shanghai Disneyland was the first park to begin a phased reopening on May 11. Typical capacity in the Shanghai park is 80,000 visitors a day, but the government cut that to about 30%, or 24,000 a day, said CEO Bob Chapek. During a roundtable discussion, Disney executive George Kalogridis said the company was considering reopening its U.S. parks with 20%...

    Two executives from the Fuji-Q Highland amusement park silently ride the the Fujiyama coasterScreenshot via Fuji-Q Highland Official/YouTubeA viral video of two top executives from Fuji-Q Highland amusement park silently riding their famed Fujiyama roller coaster with face masks on, ends with the unusual request to "Please scream inside your heart."

Fuji-Q, located southwest of Tokyo, is not alone. They are joined by Tokyo Disneyland and other Japanese parks in this bold suppression of free screech. After the rules were announced by the parks, many would-be travelers reacted online...
