Disneyland Resort has remained closed for almost a year.
Although Disney California Adventure will be reopening for a limited-time event, the resort as a whole has remained closed. But now, updated state guidelines may change that.
California Governor Gavin Newson’s “Blueprint Refresh” will allow theme parks across the state to reopen as early as April 1st at limited capacity. To be able to open, the county they are in must be in the red/substantial tier 2 risk status for COVID-19.
“Blueprint Refresh” is part of the governor’s four-tier Blueprint for a Safer Economy. Notably, these guidelines do not make a distinction between small and large theme parks, as was the case previously.
All theme parks in the red tier may reopen at 15% capacity as early as April 1st. Capacity levels will shift once their counties reach the orange/moderate tier 3 and yellow/minimal tier 4. Orange and Los Angeles counties — home of Disneyland Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood — are expected to move into the red tier next week.
Although Disneyland Resort has not announced their official opening timeline, Ken Potrock, President of Disneyland Resort, shared that they “look forward to sharing an opening date soon.”
It is important to note that initially, theme park attendance will be limited to California residents. We’ll be sure to keep you posted as we learn more, so stay tuned to AllEars!
