It is with the most profound excitement and glee that I present to you this breaking news: Disneyland has officially released their proposed reopening plan to open back up in July!!!
Disneyland Plans to Begin Phased Reopening July 9th
Disneyland released a statement today and a photo summary online on their webpage and official social media accounts.
Most importantly, here is what we know so far in terms of a scheduled reopening for the Downtown Disney District, Disneyland Resort, California Adventure, as well as the resort hotels in Anaheim, California.
- Downtown Disney District – July 9th
- Disneyland Park – July 17th
- California Adventure – July 17th
- Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel and Spa – July 23rd
- Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel – July 23rd
As you can see, it’s a phased reopening for Disneyland Resort.
This follows the same principle as Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida.
From what I can gather, it seems like they’ve figured out a recipe for reopening the theme parks with Shanghai Disneyland in China.
They instituted a number of seemingly very helpful practices that should make reopening all the Disney Parks much easier and much sooner than many anticipated:
- 20-30% capacity
- Pre-entrance temperature check screenings
- Social distancing markers (with a little Stormtrooper help)
- Hand sanitizer all over the place
- And more…
One new question concerns the mask requirement in Orange County. Read all about that right here.

Below is the entire reopening plan statement from Disneyland Resort.
As expected, we’ll be using the new virtual reservation system Disney has discussed previously.
I could not be more excited, and I can’t wait to get back to Disneyland.
Home sweet home! 🙂
