Disneyland Resort Seeks Approval to Begin Phased Reopening of Theme Parks July 17

Disneyland Resort Seeks Approval to Begin Phased Reopening of Theme Parks July 17

Disneyland Park is planning to open their theme park gates on July 17, 2020, exactly sixty-five years to the date after the historic opening of Disneyland park.

Disney Parks, Experiences and Products today presented plans for a phased reopening of the Disneyland Resort and is awaiting approval from the state and local government.

  • Downtown Disney District - begin reopening on July 9.  

  • Disneyland park and Disney California Adventure park - reopen on July 17

  • Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel and Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel - reopen on July 23

In order to limit theme park capacity to comply with governmental requirements and promote physical distancing, the Disneyland Resort will manage attendance through a new theme park reservation system, similar to the plans Walt Disney World announced. Disneyland announced that "it will require all guests, including Annual Passholders, to obtain a reservation for park entry in advance. Theme park reservations will be subject to availability. More details about this new reservation system will be available soon. At this time, there will also be a temporary pause on new ticket sales and Annual Passport sales and renewals. Additional details will be available soon."

Once local and state officials approve, the Disneyland Resort will reopen with enhanced health and safety measures and a Guest Experience Team will be available throughout the parks and Downtown Disney District to assist guests with questions regarding these new policies.

Experiences that draw large group gatherings, including parades and nighttime spectaculars, will not be available upon reopening but will return at a later date. Character meet and greets will also be temporarily unavailable, but characters will be in the parks in new ways to entertain guests.

Additional information on enhanced health and safety measures and operational changes for reopening locations will be shared soon.
