  1. What happens to those 3 day park tickets for So Ca residents set to expire at the end of May. Will those be extended or refunded or transferable to a different ticket?

  2. Will you be closed through June also? I planned a trip already with tickets purchased the first week of June. Wondering if you anticipate to be open or should I reschedule my trip?

    1. Hi Christine! As of now, Disneyland has announced they will remain closed through March 31st with current plans to reopen on April 1st.

  3. Why isn’t the Drawn to Life show being canceled? We bought tickets last Oct. with a travel agency at the cost of $320. That included transportation. We are 81 yrs. old and we are to entertain ourselves there in Disney Springs and buy our dinner then see the show. With the Coronavirus guid lines we are to distance ourselves 6’ from another person. How is that possible on a bus or in a restaurant and for sure seated at the show. We are at high risk for possible death from the virus so our options are none. We will be forfeiting our money. Thanks Disney!

    1. Hi Krunali! At this time we haven’t heard anything from Disneyland regarding the Southern California resident tickets, so would recommend reaching out to them directly.

    1. Hi Erica! At this time we haven’t heard anything from Disneyland regarding the Southern California resident tickets, so would recommend reaching out to them directly.

  4. What about people that had multi day tickets and didn’t get to use all the days due to the closure. We were in the park for our first day when the announcement was made and we still have 2 days left on our tickets.

  5. What about the so cal tickets. We have 2 day passes still to use but limited time to use them. Will that time be extended as well?

    1. Hi Julie! We haven’t heard anything specific from Disney in regards to the So Cal tickets, so would recommend reaching out to them directly!

  6. We were supposed to visit this next week and have our multiday passes already. We are hoping to reschedule for this fall however my son has a birthday this summer and will no longer be in the age group for the child ticket I purchased at that time. Am I going to be expected to pay the difference or will this not be an issue since I purchased the tickets before all this happened and had to cancel due to park closure? I can show proof of canceled flight if necessary. Thanks.
