The MAGIC is returning to Disneyland Resort in California!

After being closed for more than one year, magic is finally returning to the Disneyland Resort in Southern California!

Disneyland park and Disney California Adventure park are planning to officially reopen to the public on April 30, with limited capacity of course. As of now, theme park admission will be limited to residents of California, due to current state guidelines. We know out of state guests are anxious to get back to the Disneyland parks, and we look forward to planning those unforgettable vacations as soon as guidelines allow. Be sure to follow with us closely as we learn more in the coming months.

Disneyland will be implementing a similar park pass reservation system that is currently being used in Walt Disney World. This system has worked really well to maintain park capacity and to promote safe social distancing. Your PPV Inc. agent will work with you to set all this up and ensure your reservations for the parks are good to go before you travel.

Guests will soon be welcomed back to enjoy unforgettable attractions, see beloved Disney friends, shop for the latest merchandise, savor the world-famous food and drinks, capture fun photos and cherish special magical moments.

You can get ready to once again experience favorite attractions at both parks, from thrilling adventures like the new Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and the Incredicoaster to family-friendly experiences like Peter Pan’s Flight and Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree. New magic will be unveiled, too, as the reimagined Snow White’s Enchanted Wish opens to guests for the very first time.

From surprise appearances along Main Street, U.S.A., and Pixar Pier to playful interactions, characters from favorite Disney stories will entertain and delight. Beloved characters will pop up in new ways and sometimes in unexpected places as they remain mindful of physical distancing. Certain experiences that draw large group gatherings – such as parades and nighttime spectaculars – will return at a later date.

In the days leading up to the public opening on April 30, Disneyland Resort will invite cast members and members of the local community to be the first theme park guests after more than a year of closure. Our hearts go out to all cast members of Disneyland- they have endured more than a year of closures, furloughs, and lay offs.

Guests will also have the opportunity to stay in the middle of the magic as the hotels of the Disneyland Resort plan to welcome guests once again, with a phased reopening.

  • Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa plans to reopen on April 29, with limited capacity.
  • Disney Vacation Club Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa will plan to reopen May 2.
  • Note that Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel and the Disneyland Hotel will reopen at a later date.

The health and well-being of guests and cast members remain a top priority. Just as the Downtown Disney District at Disneyland Resort reopened with enhanced health and safety measures, operational changes will be in place at the theme parks and hotels to align with guidance from health authorities and learnings from Disney parks around the world to promote physical distancing, enhanced cleanliness and reduced contact.  With that guidance, many factors will determine the timing of when offerings may be available.

Be sure to follow us closely as we bring you all the latest changes and happenings in the theme parks and beyond!
