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
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.
