What to expect when Disneyland reopens

As we shared last week, the Disneyland Resort has filed plans for a phased reopening of its theme parks, resort hotels, and the Downtown Disney shopping district as follows:

  • July 9 – Downtown Disney District
  • July 17 – Disneyland and Disney California Adventure parks
  • July 23 – Paradise Pier Hotel, Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, the Villas at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa

The plan is still pending approval from state and local authorities. While the company awaits guidance from the State of California, Disney last week issued an update from Disney Parks Chief Medical Officer Dr. Pamela Hymel about the health and safety measures that guests should expect to see on both coasts. The guidelines include all the steps the public has likely grown accustomed to during the pandemic, including social distancing, reduced capacity, an increased focus on sanitation, temperature checks, and mandatory use for face coverings.

It was the operational details released by Walt Disney World last week in advance of its pending reopening, however, that provides an even greater idea of what the theme park experience may be once the Anaheim parks reopen. The following new details are based on what has been announced for Walt Disney World, and we expect Disneyland to share similar policies and procedures once its proposed plans are approved.

Theme park reservations required

Walt Disney World says, "To enter a park, both a park reservation AND valid admission for the same park on the same date are required for each person in your party ages 3 and up." Holders of multi-day tickets must make a reservation for each day of their trip.

Before you can make a theme park reservation via the new Disney Park Pass system, you must create an account on the Disney web site and link your ticket or annual passport to your account. Each adult in the party must create an account; parents can manage the tickets for their minor children. Disneyland has already announced that theme park reservations will be required, so we recommend that passholders and vacation planners create and update their Disneyland.com account.

Walt Disney World is using the Disney Park Pass system to book theme park reservations as far out as September 26, 2021, so the company is clearly prepared for reservations to be required for quite some time.

No park hopping

Walt Disney World will not allow park hopping between its four theme parks when that resort opens, and we expect the same policy to be in place at the Disneyland Resort.

Resort guests get priority

Walt Disney World is opening the Disney Park Pass system in stages, with those who have reservations at a resort hotel getting the first opportunity to book their theme park reservations as early as today, June 22. Annual passholders without hotel reservations can begin using the Disney Park Pass system this Friday, on June 26. Those who have theme park tickets without hotel reservations can start use the Disney Park Pass system on Sunday, June 28.

Vacation planners who have a room-only reservation must first call and add theme park admission to their vacation package before they can use the Disney Park Pass system to reserve theme park dates.

Passholder access limited

Disneyland passholders who have the FlexPass will be quite familiar with this policy. During the initial opening phases, and until further notice, Walt Disney World annual passholders can make a maximum of three theme park reservations at a time, unless they're staying at a resort hotel. The usual blockout dates apply to each pass type. The Disney World website also reads, "Some pass benefits and features will not be available during periods of limited capacity," but doesn't provide details as to which benefits may be limited.

We could see Disneyland setting similar reservation limits, but wonder whether Signature-level passholders might balk at suddenly having the same access restrictions as the cheaper FlexPass. Perhaps Disneyland will offer higher-tier passholders the option to make more reservations at a time.

Most Disney World passholders are eligible to register to attend a preview day before the Florida parks reopen, but of course capacity is very limited. We don't know whether Disneyland hopes to offer an annual passholder preview.

No Fastpasses

Disney says it must discontinue Fastpass until further notice, "as we plan to use additional queue space to manage capacity at our attractions and maintain physical distancing." We don't know what Disneyland will do with its Fastpass service, or how it will handle refunds for tickets and annual passports that had the up-charge MaxPass feature added.

No Extra Magic Hours

Walt Disney World is not offering Extra Magic Hours during the initial reopening and until further notice. Expect Disneyland to follow suit with Magic Morning and Extra Magic Hours.

Fewer table-service dining options

When the Florida theme parks reopen, reservations will not be available for table service restaurants. Table-service options are also limited at the resort hotels as they reopen, and for now, only guests with hotel reservations can make dining reservations for hotel restaurants. Many Disney Springs—the Florida version of Downtown Disney—restaurants are open, but are serving at reduced capacity.

Special events modified or canceled

WDW canceled its popular Mickey's Halloween Party event for 2020, and announced that its Food & Wine Festival will take place in a modified version this year. While no announcement has been made regarding the Oogie Boogie Bash at Disney California Adventure, we expect the event will also go on hiatus for 2020.

Look ahead to 2021

With so many spring and summer vacation plans disrupted by the pandemic, it's understandable that Disney is focusing on those guests impacted by the closure. For now, it's advising people looking to book a future vacation to think ahead—at least six months—and visit Florida in 2021. By the end of June, Walt Disney World will reopen reservations for those who want to plan a vacation for 2021 and beyond, including new ticket sales and hotel reservations.

However, if you were still hoping to visit this year, you'll have to wait until "later this summer," after Disney tries to help visitors who had already purchased tickets and made hotel reservations, before you can book a new 2020 vacation package.

Labor unions say it's too soon for Disneyland to reopen

Despite the measures that Disney has stated will be in use when the Anaheim theme parks reopen next month, leaders from a dozen labor unions, which represent 17,000 Disneyland cast members, wrote to Governor Gavin Newsom last week, saying in part, "we are not yet convinced that it is safe to reopen the parks on Disney's rapid timetable."

The Coalition of Resort Labor Unions says that Disney has addressed some of their concerns about the safety of employees returning to work, but has yet to have "any serious discussion of testing," which the group calls the "cornerstone of plans for other areas of the entertainment industry reopening."

The group notes that the State of California has yet to approve Disney's reopening plans.

In an update posted on the group's Facebook page, union leaders note that Disney has identified 775 jobs considered essential to reopening the theme parks, and would begin to recall employees to fill these roles, with return dates as early as June 28, 2020.

Bowers Museum reopens with Inside the Walt Disney Archives exhibit

The Bowers Museum in Santa Ana reopened to the public last Friday, June 19, and announced that it has extended the run of the Inside the Walt Disney Archives exhibit to October 18.

Tickets for the Bowers are now available at the museum website, www.bowers.org. All COVID-related protocols are in place at the Bowers, including the use of face coverings and social distancing.

MousePlanet auctions for charity

MousePlanet is proud to support Team Muscle Makers for UCMD, an organization founded by two MousePlanet readers. The team raises awareness for Unusual Congenital Muscular Dystrophy with only a few hundred documented cases worldwide. The team raises money through endurance events, including runDisney events as an official charity partner, with the funds going to the Muscle Disease Clinic at Rady Children's Hospital in San Diego.

We have two new auctions this week featuring items from Disneyland's exclusive Club 33. 100 percent of the proceeds go directly to Team Muscle Makers through the eBay for Charity program. Please take a look at this week's listings, and we invite you to bookmark the team's eBay for Charity page to be notified when new items are added.

a
Downtown Disney District & Disneyland Resort

All of these Downtown Disney businesses closed in 2018 to make room for construction of a planned fourth Disney hotel. With Disney canceling its hotel project, we're waiting to see what Disney does with the vacant buildings.

  • Rainforest Cafe – Asian Street Eats food kiosk now open in detached structure outside the former restaurant.
  • AMC Theaters – building remains closed.
  • ESPN Zone – building is being used as a temporary space for the Disney Performing Arts program.

Disney Grand Californian Hotel

2020
  • Downtown Disney District reopening – July 9, 2020
  • Disneyland and Disney California Adventure parks reopening – July 17
  • Paradise Pier Hotel, Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, the Villas at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa reopening – July 23
  • Dapper Day (unofficial event) – Spring Outing canceled, but the group may hold a smaller event in August. More information on the event website.
  • Disneyland After Dark: Villains Nite – Postponed from Thursday, April 30. Visitors who had already purchased a ticket to the sold-out event will automatically receive a ticket for the rescheduled event once a date is selected. However, anyone who purchased a ticket and prefers a refund can call 714-781-4636 to request one.
  • Disneyland After Dark: Star Wars Nite – Thursday, August 27. The event is sold out.
  • CHOC Walk in the Park – Sunday, September 13 2020. Registration has been postponed.
  • Gay Days at Disneyland (unofficial event) – October 2–4. More information on the event website.
2021
  • Coming Soon!

We also recommend checking the convention calendar at the Anaheim/Orange County Visitor and Convention Bureau website. When looking at that site, remember to note both the number of people and the number of rooms resulting from each convention. A gathering of 25,000 people booking few room nights (indicating most will be driving in to the area for their meeting) can impact traffic around the resort much more than a crowd of 25,000 staying in area hotels. Of course, that second group is going to make finding a hotel room more difficult (and possibly more expensive), so it's best to book your own room as early as possible if you see that a big convention is in town during your trip.

Current Discounts and Promotions

Disneyland prices as of January 6, 2019.

Note: MousePlanet does not edit past Updates to reflect price increases; for up-to-date prices, check the most recent Disneyland Resort Update. Several current promotions offer discounted admission to the Disneyland Resort. For your convenience, we have grouped the discount offers based on the number of days the tickets are valid. Check out the category that best matches the amount of time you plan to spend at the resort, and pick the offer that works best for you. And keep those tips coming—let us know if you find a better or different offer, so we can share it with other readers!

This first section is a list of discounts on ticket-only purchases. Though it has become more common in recent years, Disneyland tickets are rarely offered at deep discounts unless you are a resident of Southern California or Northern Mexico. For residents outside that area, the best discounts available tend to be simple advance purchase discounts. If you know of any additional discounts, offers, promotions, or contests that should be listed in this section, drop us a line. Note, we are no longer listing offers from the Anaheim-Orange County Visitor & Convention Bureau, as their convenience fee negates any savings.

Don't get scammed! Never buy tickets from an unofficial or secondary outlet, such as through eBay or Craigslist. Never rent or purchase tickets from people approaching you outside the gates stating they have remaining days or leftover tickets. This practice is against the terms of use for Disneyland admission, and may result in denial of entry. It is also common for criminals to shoplift inactivated Disney theme park tickets from supermarkets to resell them. There is no way to determine if these tickets are valid until you try to use them to enter the parks. Only purchase Disney theme park tickets directly from Disney, an authorized seller, or travel agency like MousePlanet travel partner Get Away Today.

SoCal Resident Ticket Offer

The Southern California Resident Ticket offers residents of Southern California and Northern Baja California admission to either Disneyland or Disney California Adventure up to three times between January 7 and May 21, 2020.

You can use every day of this ticket at the same theme park, or visit different parks on different days, but you cannot use it to enter both parks on the same day. The ticket is $199 for ages 3 and up, a $20 increase over the 2019 offer.

For an additional $55, you can also upgrade the ticket to a park-hopper, which allows entry to both parks each day, and which is a savings of up to $101 compared to the box office price of a three-day park-hopper ticket.

Although you can purchase tickets at the Disneyland Resort ticket booths on the day of your visit, you will save time and receive one Magic Morning admission when you purchase in advance from MousePlanet partner Get Away Today. You can also purchase by calling (714) 781-4636, or by going online at Disneyland.com.

The Magic Morning offer does not apply to tickets purchased on-site. If purchasing from another third party ticket outlet, double-check that their three-day tickets come with this feature.

There is no "fuse" on this ticket, which means you can use the first admission the day you buy it and wait until May to use the remaining admission. You must, however, purchase the ticket by May 18, 2020. Tickets expire on May 21, 2020, and unlike past years, do not have a spring blockout period. However, we estimate the peak Spring Break crowds will arrive April 5–12, 2020. so plan your visits accordingly.

Disney states that proof of residency is required for purchase and admission, and each resident can purchase up to five tickets per day.

Special Ticket Offer for Kids Everywhere

If you do not live in the qualifying ZIP codes for the Southern California Resident Ticket described above, Disney has another offer valid for travel on the same dates – but this one is only for children ages 3-9. This ticket also comes with a 13-day fuse, so plan your visits accordingly.

The Child Ticket Offer is also valid for travel January 7 through May 21, 2020. The price is $199 for ages 3-9, and each ticket includes one Magic Morning entry when purchased in advance from Get Away Today, calling (714) 781-4636, or online at Disneyland.com.

Duration One Park Per Day Park Hopper
3-day $199 $254

Tickets must be purchased by May 18, 2020. You must use all entries within 13 days of the initial entry, which provides some flexibility to visit as many as three weekends in a row.

  • Four-Day, One-Park per Day Ticket – regularly $340/$320
  • Four-Day Park Hopper – regularly $395/$375
  • MaxPass Add-On $20 per day, per ticket

    Considering the way things have been here, I do not blame them for saying its to soon to open. I agree with them there. Now I am curious though because as it is right now we have bars/restaurants in my area that have had to close because of employees that were positive. Downtown here there are many that feel they don't need to wear a mask or social distance. So now with that, what is Disney going to do if any employees test positive? Will it be business as usual or will they close for a certain time frame? As well as will they even bother enforcing the rules they are putting in place on social distancing and masks? Really those cast members concerned with having to go back to work, I don't blame them at all.
