Disneyland goers have been waiting for a sign of the parks reopening. Now it looks like the parks will be able to open next month!
To celebrate the 65th anniversary of Disneyland park, Disney is planning to open the gates again on July 17, 2020, welcoming guests back to the Disneyland Resort.
According to DisneyParks.com, Disney Parks, Experiences and Products today announced proposed plans for a phased reopening of the Disneyland Resort. Pending state and local government approvals, Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa and Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel plan to reopen on July 23, and Disneyland park and Disney California Adventure park will plan to reopen on July 17. Additionally, Downtown Disney District will begin reopening on July 9.
The website states:
Because theme park capacity will be significantly limited to comply with governmental requirements and promote physical distancing, the Disneyland Resort 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. 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.
Once Disney gets the approval, the Disneyland Resort will reopen with enhanced health and safety measures. In addition, a Guest Experience Team will be available throughout the parks and Downtown Disney District to assist guests with questions regarding these new policies.
Downtown Disney District will begin reopening on July 9 in line with the state’s reopening guidelines with its shopping and dining experiences, including the flagship World of Disney store.
