"We are pleased to announce our proposed plans for a phased reopening of the Disneyland Resort.

  • July 9 — Downtown Disney District

Pending state and local government approvals:

  • July 17 — Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park
  • July 23 — Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa and Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel

As we prepare for this phased reopening, we’ve made some updates based on guidance from health authorities, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and appropriate government agencies.

These enhanced health and safety measures are designed to promote:

  • Cleanliness
  • Physical distancing
  • Reduced contact

While it may be a bit different from the last time you visited, we’ve come up with new ways to create magical moments together—and memories to treasure forever.

The Disneyland Resort will reopen with some important updates to promote physical distancing, including:

  • Park Reservations: Because theme park capacity will be significantly limited to comply with governmental requirements and promote physical distancing, we will manage attendance through a new theme park reservation system that 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.
  • New Ticket Sales: At this time, we are also temporarily pausing new ticket sales and Annual Passport sales and renewals. Additional details will be provided soon.
  • Hotels of the Disneyland Resort: Pending governmental approval, Disneyland Resort Hotel Guests will once again enjoy being immersed in the magic when Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa and Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel, and Disney Vacation Club Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa reopen to Guests and members starting on July 23, 2020. The Disneyland Hotel will open at a later date. Plans to support physical distancing as well as increased cleaning measures, along with a number of other health and safety protocols, will be implemented as part of the phased reopening of our hotels and the Disney Vacation Club.
