VIDEO: Aerial footage shows an eerily quiet Orange County — Disneyland, beaches and malls

The past few months have turned Orange County into a weird combination of major metropolis and ghost town. But, as the county inches closer to opening back up, traffic will increase and parking lots will start to fill up again.

The area often looks peaceful from the air but the lack of people during the county’s stay-at-home order has added a surreal feeling to the picturesque Southern California landscape.

The coronavirus shutdown emptied beaches, closed malls and shuttered theme parks giving Orange County an eerie, empty feeling.

Through a mixture of drone photography, a tall building and a helicopter flight provided by Hangar 21 Helicopters, we take a look at the county as people stay tucked away at home avoiding the COVID-19.
