Why Disneyland? Most likely to play off Disney's fame (he was a prolific film and TV producer by then), as well as matching the motif of the park. Remember, the parks have always focused on the Disney stories. This is how Disneyland opened in 1955 Note how the various areas are named. In particular Frontierland Adventureland Tomorrowland Fantasyland ...

In the USA, Disneyland is the name of Disney's property in Anaheim, California. Originally, Disneyland was a single theme park, and still is. It has various versions around the world, but I imagine here we're talking about the Disneyland theme park in California. Confusingly, since opening, Disney has also opened another theme park (Disney's California ...

DISCLAIMER: Read OP carefully. Also, SE does not require every answer to be all-inclusive. Reading your question carefully, I’m not sure you’re asking about the easy stuff like location, scale or features. You seem to be asking a lot about the etymology: the word crafting.* Historically there are reasons** many country/state names end in “land”: Ireland, ...

The big difference is the scale. Disneyland (in California) was the first theme park Walt Disney built. Originally consisting of one theme park and one hotel, though after Walt's death it was expanded into a resort with a second theme park, more hotels and some other attractions. Disney world (in Florida) was a much bigger project, this time Walt Disney ...

The difference is that Disneyland is in California and Disney World is in Florida. Please see Disneyland and Disney World I suppose the idea was that they would not be confused.

Yes, the restrictions on entry to the United States for people who have been in the Schengen Area (or Mainland China, Iran, the UK, Ireland, or Brazil; see this question) also restrict entry to Puerto Rico, because Puerto Rico is part of the "United States" for immigration purposes. INA 101(a)(38) (8 USC 1101(a)(38)) defines "United States&...

The simple answer is TALK TO YOUR EMPLOYERS LAWYERS immediately. This is potentially a changing situation, but as it stands today if you leave the US as described you will NOT be able to re-enter the US until at least 2021, and likely several months into 2021 as you will need to arrange and attend an interview at a US consulate in your home country.

When hearing or saying this type of statement, I tend to view it in context and familiarity. In no case is a statement like this an actual invitation when spoken on its own. It is an analogous bidding of farewell to greetings like “How are you?”, or “What’s up?”. In other words, if I make this sort of statement to someone I have just met, it is usually done ...

If you enter on F2 status (with your I-20), there is no problem with you staying for as long as your wife. If you enter on B2 visitor status, they might want to make sure you plan to return within 6 months. Tourists cannot enter the US through the land border right now. People entering the US to attend educational institutions are exempt from the land ...

Short answer: He will have no problems leaving the country. Your son cannot be denied entry into the US. He may get questioned or yelled at by CBP but he will get in, if he manages to get to the border in the first place However, no airline will let him board a US bound flight with an expired US passport As a dual citizen you are required to use your US ...

I assume you want to use The Philippine's official postal service. I looked up all their post offices in Manila and this was the closes to Paco: Municipality : 2F Robinson's Otis, UN Avenue, Manila Address : Robinson's Otis The cost of a postcard to send to the USA is: up to 20 grams: 24.00 ₱ 21-50 grams: 58.00 ₱ 51-100 grams: 80.00 ₱ 101-250 grams: 147....

If you want to return in M-1 status, you'll need a new M-1 visa. This is true even if your extension request is granted before you leave the US. Normally, you can get that visa while you are in Italy, but I do not know whether restrictions related to the coronavirus will prevent or delay the process. You will also have to consider the possibility that the ...

Update (2020-06-24): NY, NJ and CT require travelers from states with high coronavirus rates to quarantine for two weeks (mirror).

I have no idea why the Department of State gave you that answer, but you were asking the wrong people. It's rather as though you called your local fire department's fire safety inspector to find out whether you can get a license from the health department to operate a fruit stand. They really shouldn't have given you any answer at all: The office of US ...

Entry screening only applies to travellers arriving from certain high-risk countries: Currently, travel restrictions and entry screening apply only to travelers arriving from some countries or regions with widespread ongoing spread of COVID-19.

The ESTA FAQ seems to confirm that after a stay of 14 days in Bermuda ('United Kingdom, excluding overseas territories outside of Europe,'), a holder of a valid ESTA may enter the United States. What if I am a passport holder of a Schengen country with a valid ESTA but I have not been present in a Schengen country within 14 days of my travel to the United ...

I contacted the CBP through the Trusted Traveler Sentri contact email to ask them. Their answer was short and to the point: Unfortunately you will not be allowed to enter the U.S. without having your valid New Zealand passport. I took this period of travel restrictions due to Covid-19 to renew the passports (since I'm currently not allowed to cross the ...

I am almost certainly sure that the US Citizens Distress Hotline was confused, either with the question you asked or were unsure of the information themselves. The US Government page clearly states traveling from these countries is possible after not being there for 14 days: After arriving to the United States from one of these countries, CDC recommends ...

Yes, you can! The document issues by the Whitehouse explaining the ban states: The entry into the United States, as immigrants or nonimmigrants, of all aliens who were physically present within the United Kingdom, excluding overseas territories outside of Europe, or the Republic of Ireland during the 14-day period preceding their entry or attempted entry ...

Another situation not yet mentioned would be cars used in motion picture and television production. I saw one on the road which I would guess was returning after a shoot, and had all of its insignia roughly scratched off and also had some moderately-small signs in the window saying "MOVIE PROP CAR". The signs were large enough to be read, but ...

There is another case that may occur and that is UTC (Uniform Traffic control). Sometimes it is needed for a police officer to be part of a traffic plan in a private run project (even if publicly funded such as repaving or traffic light replacement). The cases I have been involved with the general contractor will hire a traffic control contractor who will ...

I’m surprised nobody has mentioned what I believe to be the more common answer: Once a police department is finished with a car that has become too old, the department often removes its markings and auctions it off. If you don’t see any government markings anywhere (such as the license plate), I’d guess it’s no longer a police car (based on my experience ...

Police cars are frequently not painted with traditional police markings. They are typically used to blend into traffic or other roadside cars. That way, people who are speeding may be caught unaware as they speed past them. Cautious drivers may even slow down when seeing any car parked alongside the road. On some roads that are notorious for speeders, police ...

These are called unmarked cars - sort of a compromise between a marked car and a fully undercover vehicle. The idea is that they're somewhat less easy to spot than a marked car, yet still have all the same equipment when it's needed. They are very common, though the laws around their use may be evolving. Yes, by law you do need to follow their ...

The entry ban to the US of people who have been to the Schengen Area in the preceding 14 days is still in effect. Until that ban is lifted, if you travel to the Schengen Area, you will not be able to return to the US unless you first go to a country other than the Schengen Area (and other than the UK or Ireland, Mainland China, Iran, and Brazil) for 14 days. ...

One class I don't see listed above is Seasonal Maintenance, where they are not maintained during winter months. A sign is placed at the point where the status changes and could be in the midpoint of a road. There are in some rare cases houses along these roads but the municipality that the road lies within determines if they will spend money clearing the ...
