Disneyland Today

To start, Disneyland reservations and park access will look different than it ever has. Here is what you can expect when they first reopen:

Park Tickets

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

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!

Disney Tech

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!

Enhanced Safety Precautions

  • Reduced capacity permitted entry
  • Face masks required (all guests 2 and up)
  • Social Distancing required
  • Temperature screenings

Important Reminders & Tips

  • Guests 3 and up must have a park ticket and reservation for entry
  • One guest can book all park reservations for their party but a “party” cannot exceed 10 guests or guests from more than 3 households
  • Guests will need a park reservation for EACH day they want to enter a park
  • The Disneyland App will be a must-have for your trip

The Happiest Place on Earth is set to reopen in phases beginning on July 17th – which also happens to be the 65th anniversary of the original park opening. If that doesn’t scream magic, I am not sure what does!

With the two parks opening on the 17th, Downtown Disney will open a bit in advance on the 9th and the Disney Grand Californian along with the Paradise Pier Hotel will follow shortly after on July 23.

The Disneyland Resort will reopen with several new policies in place to protect guests & staff. Much like the Disney properties that opened before it, capacity will be reduced, some offerings may be limited and additional health and safety measures may be put into place. More will be released as we get closer to the opening date.

Family’s look to Disneyland and Disney properties as a place of hope, magic, togetherness, and happiness. I am so happy to see them reopening – as it is a sign of moving forward and getting back to a state of normal. I cannot wait to return to the Happiest Place on Earth.

Stay tuned for more news on openings and new policies!
