Disneyland Is Reopening: Here’s What We Know So Far!

Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park will reopen April 30, 2021

Here are some important tidbits for you to know before you go:
  • Cleaning procedures will be enhanced throughout the Disneyland Resort, with hand wash stations, sanitizer stations, face coverings required and physical distancing marks.
  • Temporary adjustments will be in place to promote physical distancing such as no more than three households in a party size, limited capacity in the parks and attractions within.
  • Experiences may be modified for reduced contact. Including online check-in process and changes to housekeeping.
  • The Theme Park Reservation system will be set in place. Much like Walt Disney World, you will need a valid ticket and a reservation to enter the parks on any given day. This is a requirement for those 3 and older. Park Hopping will be available to those with the proper tickets to do so after 1pm each day.
  • Only California residents may be admitted to the parks at this time, proof of residency may be required.

  • On April 12, 2021 at 8am PT the theme park reservation system will open to existing ticket holders and they will be able to book a reservation, pending their ticket type. Reservations for select dates may be available on a rolling basis.
  • On April 15, 2021 at 8am PT theme park ticket sales will resume for California residents with a limit of 3 households per party in alignment with current state guidelines.
