Phased Reopening of Disneyland Begins July 9
Disneyland will be taking tickets once again on July 17th.
Do you need some churros and dole whips in your life?
It feels like it has been far too long since the Disney parks announced closures back in March.
Chairman Josh D’Amaro said it best: The Magic Is Returning!
What Is Opening at Disneyland First?
Downtown Disney gets the nod to open first with a planned July 9th reopening date.
When Will the Disneyland Resort Parks Reopen?
Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure are scheduled for a July 17th reopening date, which coincides with Disneyland’s 65th birthday.
When Will the Disneyland Hotels Reopen?
Hotels are coming just a bit later.
It looks like if you want to stay on property, you should plan your trip to start sometime after July 23rd.
Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa and Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel will open on that date.
Will You Need Reservations For Disneyland?
Just like Walt Disney World, you will need reservations for Disneyland entry upon reopening.
This will include Annual Passholders.
Disneyland Ticket Sales Paused
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. Please check Disneyland.com for the most current information.
Reservations will allow park capacity to be managed in an effort to aid with maintaining social distance while on rides and inside the parks.
How About Parades and Fireworks? Are They Happening At Disneyland This Summer?
Negative, Ghostrider. The pattern is full!
Unfortunately, those experiences will not be happening when the parks reopen in July.
Character meet and greets will also be altered and shared in a new, socially distant way.
Should you take your kids to Disneyland? That’s a great question and Julie has some suggestions to help you decide.
