My services are free and will save you so much time & stress so if you are planning on visiting, let me help!
To start, Disneyland reservations and park access will look different than it ever has. Here is what you can expect when they first reopen:
Tickets that were purchased prior to the closure have been adjusted. Guests should review the Know Before You Go listed on the Disneyland website prior to visiting. If you hold a 1-day ticket, you can check HERE to see when they are valid for.
You will need a Park Reservation and a ticket for that park on that day to enter. You can check the park availability calendar HERE. Reservations can be made on a rolling basis 60 days in advance of the day you want to attend.
Park Hopper Tickets
Park Hopping will be available! During your park reservation process, you will select which park you want to attend first during that specific day. At 1pm on that day, you can then utilize your park hopping ticket and hop to the next park. Guests will not be able to join the Rise Against the Resistance queue unless they are in Disneyland to start the day. Hopping from California Adventure to Disneyland will not permit you to join the Queue.
Disney Fastpass service will not be operational when the park initially opens. Disney will use the additional queue space to allow for proper social distancing. Disney Maxpass will also be unavailable to start.
Park Feature Availability
Upon reopening, guests may visit all of their favorite attractions however character interactions will be different and limited and nighttime shows & parades will not be operational. Instead of one-on-one character greetings, guests can enjoy seeing their Disney Favorites from a distance as they cruise by in Character Cavalcades!
Guests must have a Disney Account in order to make park reservations.
The Disneyland App will be invaluable to use for mobile ordering, maps & GPS, theme park hours & other important times, Dining Reservations, Mobile Check-in for reservations, joining wait times for restaurants, and more!
