What Will Be Open At Disneyland? Here’s the Complete List

by | Apr 12, 2021 | Walt Disney World News, WDW Blog

Here’s what will be open at Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure when they finally reopen on April 30, 2021.

Disney first announced the official reopening dates on March 17. It’s definitely exciting to think that the happiest place on earth will once again be open for guests.

Even though, like Walt Disney World (WDW), there will be several health and safety protocols in place, there’s still so much to enjoy.

From attractions to entertainment to dining, to shopping, guests will be able to experience all kinds of magical goodness at both parks.

Remember, not only do you need both a valid ticket and a theme park reservation to gain access but at this time only California residents are permitted to visit, in line with current state guidelines.
