What types of coronavirus restrictions and safety protocols will Disneyland Resort be implementing for its reopening?
Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure will be reopening to regular guests for the first time in over a year on April 30. The parks will be utilizing many different safety precautions to help keep guests and Cast Members safe.
Enhanced cleaning, social distancing procedures and reduced contact will be the resort’s guiding principles as the parks prepare to welcome guests this week.
Park reservations and proof of California residency
As part of the resort’s effort to limit capacity, all visitors must have a valid entry ticket AND a park reservation for the day they plan to visit. Learn more here.
Currently, Disneyland is only allowing California residents entry into the theme parks, and your ID may be checked as you enter. Learn more here.
Face coverings are required
Face coverings are required for all guests (ages 2 and older) and Cast Members, including those who have received a COVID-19 vaccine.
You must wear a face covering over your mouth and nose at all times, except when dining, swimming.
You may remove your face covering while actively eating or drinking, but you must be stationary and maintain appropriate physical distancing.
Guests will be required to undergo temperature screenings with no-touch thermometers before entering the theme parks and Downtown Disney.
Guests with a temperature of 100.4 F or higher may not be allowed entry, but can wait and try again. If not permitted to enter, the rest of your party will not be permitted as well.
Social Distancing and Other Changes
Guests should follow directional signage and ground markings, which were placed specifically to help aid in physical distancing.
Physical barriers have been added in select places to help promote proper separation between people, including in queues and on attractions.
Guest party size is limited to not more than three households.
Reduced Contact Options
Guests are encouraged to use cashless payment options when possible, including credit and debit cards, and mobile wallets.
Guests can download the official Disneyland app to utilize Mobile Ordering at quick service restaurant locations. You can also check in to your hotel and reserve dining using the app.

Parades and nighttime spectaculars are not currently operating, but are expected to return at a later date.
Certain attractions may not run preshows or may include other small changes to be allowed to operate within the 15 minute indoor attraction guidelines. Rise of the Resistance will feature shortened preshow elements for example.
