- The park updated its website Wednesday to include the new return date.
What’s going on?
Disneyland will most likely reopen on April 30. The park used the phrase “will plan to reopen” on that date because the coronavirus pandemic could change reopening guidelines if case counts soar.
Disneyland outlined multiple steps for people to visit the park, including:
- Guests will need a park reservation and valid admission for the same park on the same date.
- There are limited reservations.
- Only California residents can visit the parks.
- Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa will plan to reopen on April 29, 2021.
- The Disneyland Hotel and Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel will remain closed. No reopening date has been announced yet.
Disneyland has been closed since the start of the pandemic in March 2020. Disney CEO Bob Chapek said at a recent investor’s meeting that Disneyland would reopen sometime in “late April,” as I wrote for the Deseret News.
- This came after California released new reopening guidelines for theme parks. Per The Los Angeles Times, the guidelines allowed for theme parks to start reopening on April 1.
