Disney plans to reopen its theme parks at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, Calif., on July 17.

Similar to its plan at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, Disney is doing a phased reopening.

Pending approval from local and state governments, Disney plans to open its shopping, dining and entertainment complex, Downtown Disney, on July 9. The Disneyland and Disney California Adventure parks would follow on July 17. The Grand Californian Hotel & Spa and Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel would reopen July 23.

Disney said the Disneyland Hotel will reopen at a later date.

Disney’s plan in California calls for reduced capacity, physical distancing and new health and safety measures. An in-park guest experience team will help guests with questions about new policies.

Guests will have to use a new reservation system to get a reservation for park entry in advance. Currently, new ticket sales, including annual pass sales and renewals, have been paused. Disney said more information will be released soon.

Some experiences that draw crowds, like parades and fireworks shows, will not initially be held. And while characters will be in the parks, meet-and-greets will be temporarily suspended.
