Disneyland and Disney California Adventure plan to reopen on April 30 with limited capacity and enhanced health and safety measures. In order to limit capacity, a new theme park reservation system is in place that requires all guests to obtain a reservation for park entry in advance. Theme park reservations will be available online, in advance only, for a specific date, subject to availability. Here’s some important information to help you plan ahead:
Theme Park Reservations: To enter Disneyland or Disney California Adventure, both a theme park reservation and valid admission ticket for the same park on the same date are required for guests ages 3 and up. Guests must have a valid theme park admission ticket in order to make a reservation. Theme park reservations will be limited and subject to availability and, until further notice, only California residents may visit the parks, and in groups no larger than three households, in line with current state guidelines.
The theme park reservation system will launch on April 12, and guests with existing valid theme park tickets can begin making park reservations for the days that their ticket is valid. Theme park ticket sales will resume on April 15, and guests without park tickets may begin purchasing tickets and making park reservations. As a reminder, ticket expiration dates were extended for many outstanding tickets. To accommodate as many types of ticket holders as possible, park reservations for select dates may be made available on a rolling basis. Ticket calendars will be updated on a rolling basis. Check for updated availability. Here are some key dates to remember:
April 9: Guests who currently hold a theme park ticket can check available days for one-day ticket type beginning April 9 on www.Disneyland.com/ParksUpdates.
April 12: The theme park reservation system will open no earlier than 8 a.m. PDT on April 12 and guests who already have valid theme park tickets may begin making park reservations.
April 15: Theme park ticket sales will resume no earlier than 8 a.m. PDT on April 15, and guests without park tickets may begin purchasing tickets and making park reservations.
Guests need to be sure to log into their Disney accounts first to link valid theme park tickets prior to accessing the park reservation system (see diagram below or click on Four Steps to Make a Theme Park Reservation).
Guests with valid theme park admission tickets who are planning a stay at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa will also need to book a theme park reservation, as a hotel stay does not guarantee a theme park reservation. Guests who plan to visit the theme parks during their stay should get their theme park reservation prior to making their hotel reservation.
Guests with Park Hopper tickets may choose, pending availability, which theme park to start their day, when making their theme park reservations, and then will be able to visit the other park beginning at 1 p.m. that day. Guests with multi-day tickets will be required to make a separate park reservation for each day they plan to visit the theme parks.
Park Hours: Upon reopening, daily park hours for Disneyland park and Disney California Adventure park are currently planned to be 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Guests should visit Disneyland.com for operating hours as they are subject to change.
Parking: Theme park parking will be available at the Mickey & Friends and Pixar Pals parking structures, located off Disneyland Drive.
Dining: For a contactless and cashless experience, the mobile order service, available on the Disneyland App, allows guests to plan ahead, order, and pay for food and beverages at most quick service restaurants inside the theme parks. In order to foster physical distancing during this time, dining bookings for select locations on April 22 will reopen with limited capacity. Guests will be able to book dining reservation 60 days in advance on www.Disneyland.com or with the Disneyland App, subject to availability. Be sure to have the latest version of the app downloaded and installed.
Guests should check the website to learn important details about health and safety measures prior to arrival, such as the requirement for temperature checks and for all guests, ages 2 and older, to wear an appropriate face covering. For more information, visit www.Disneyland.com.
