Disneyland Reopening

Last week, the state of California’s health department updated its guidelines, thus allowing theme parks in the state of California to open. These are considered a “refresh” of his four-tier Blueprint for a Safer Economy.

“The Newsom administration’s “Blueprint Refresh” allows Disneyland, Universal Studios Hollywood, Knott’s Berry Farm, Six Flags Magic Mountain, SeaWorld San Diego, Legoland California and other California theme parks to reopen as early as April 1 once the counties they are located in reach the red/substantial tier 2 risk status.”

Beginning April 1, 2021, theme parks can open at 15% capacity in the red/substantial tier 2. Capacity will increase as tiers shift. Additionally, only California residents will be able to visit the theme parks.

CEO Bob Chapek later announced that he hopes the park will be able to reopen towards the end of April.

CEO Bob Chapek was interviewed just now on CNBC’s “Squawk Alley” (Wednesday morning). He shared that Disneyland will reopen on April 30, 2021.

Disneyland will welcome Guests again on April 30.

That is over 13 months since they closed! So exciting!

What will reopening look like?

FastPass, Disney MaxPass, Magic Morning, and Extra Morning Magic will all be unavailable when the parks reopen.

Additionally, select attractions and certain experiences that draw large group gatherings—such as parades and nighttime spectaculars—will return at a later date. While character meet-and-greets will be temporarily unavailable, Characters will be in the parks in new ways to entertain. The Disneyland Resort will also have capacity measures in place, as well as limitations on parking and operating hours.

Interestingly, screaming may not be allowed on any of the attractions. Curious what that is all about? Head HERE for details.
