Disneyland Resort Announces Ticket and Park Reservation Information for Re-Opening

As previously announced, Disneyland and Disney California Adventure will be re-opening on April 30, with limited capacity.

When Disneyland Resort re-opens its two theme parks, they will have enhanced health and safety measures, and will limit capacity through a new theme park reservation system that requires all guests to obtain a reservation for park entry in advance. Theme park reservations will only be available online, in advance only, and for a specific date, subject to availability.

Disneyland provided some important information to help you plan ahead:

Theme Park Reservations:

To enter Disneyland park or Disney California Adventure park, 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 3 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: If guests currently hold a theme park ticket, they can check available days for your 1-day ticket type beginning April 9 on Disneyland.com/ParksUpdates.
  • April 12: The theme park reservation system will open no earlier than 8 AM PT on April 12.  Guests who already have valid theme park tickets may begin making park reservations at that time.
  • April 15: Theme park ticket sales will resume no earlier than 8 AM PT on April 15.. Guests without park tickets may begin purchasing tickets and making park reservations at that time.

Disneyland is asking guest to make sure that guests log in to their Disney account first to link valid theme park tickets prior to accessing the park reservation system.

It is important for everyone to note that a hotel stay DOES NOT guarantee 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.  Disney is advising guest who plan to visit the theme parks during their stay to get their theme park reservation prior to making a hotel reservation.

If you have park hopper tickets, there is some good news. 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 PM 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:

At this time Disney is planning that daily park hours for Disneyland and Disney California Adventure will be 9 AM to 7 PM.

Parking:

Theme park parking will be available at the Mickey & Friends and Pixar Pals parking structures, located off Disneyland Drive.

Dining: 

Disneyland Resort is planning to re-open dining bookings for select locations on April 22, with limited capacity. Guests will be able to book their dining reservation 60 days in advance on Disneyland.com or with the Disneyland App, subject to availability.

Disneyland Resort is also encouraging guests to use the mobile order service for a contactless and cashless experience.
