NEWS: The Walt Disney Family Museum Will Be Opening Again to the Public Next Week

Disneyland will most likely be closed for the “foreseeable future,” but stores and restaurants along Buena Vista Street will be opening soon to guests!


As California moves forward with its phased re-opening plans, certain businesses are allowed to open again as their tier levels allow.

The Walt Disney Family Museum closed back in March as a health and safety precaution, but still offered virtual events with stars who have influenced the company. However, even though Disneyland might not be opening soon, California’s Walt Disney Family Museum will be welcoming guests back on November 5th!

The museum has stated that its hours will change for the rest of the year, keeping its doors closed on Mondays through Wednesdays. However, guests will be able to explore the gallery on Thursdays through Sundays from 10AM until 5:30PM with the last entry time at 4:15PM.

The Walt Disney Family Museum requires that all guests reserve their tickets ahead of time as admission will be available on a “timed-ticket basis” with limited capacity.
