May 23, 2020 – Today the California Governor approved Orange County’s request to move into “Phase 2” of reopening, which includes in-person dining at restaurants and retail establishments, among other things. This means some locations at Downtown Disney or Disneyland Resort hotels could potentially open. Under the reopening guidance, establishments must perform a detailed risk assessment plan, train employees on how to limit virus spread, implement control measures and screenings for employees, establish disinfectant protocols, and implement social distancing for customers.

Disney has not made any comments on when any areas of The Disneyland Resort may reopen.
Based on Disney’s guidelines for Disney Springs, which reopened last week, it is safe to predict face masks will be required once The Disneyland Resort opens.

Frequently Asked Questions
➤When will The Disneyland Resort reopen? – At this point there is no information regarding when Disneyland will be open again. Keep checking this page for updates, or keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog as all announcements will be shared there first.
➤When will other Disney Parks be opening? – Shanghai Disney Resort was the first resort to close, and is also the first to reopen. They began a phased reopening on March 9, 2020 (some shops and dining locations). Shanghai Disneyland reopened with new safety measures, including reduced capacity, on May 11, 2020.
Disney Springs, located at Walt Disney World, will begin phased reopening on May 20, 2020, with reduced capacity, temperature checks, and required face masks.
➤What can we expect when Disneyland opens again? – There have been no announcements regarding new safety measures but we can expect to see the same practices put into place at Disneyland that we are seeing at other Disney locations, including:
– Locations at Downtown Disney will likely open first
– Reduced guest capacity
– Temperature checks
– Required face masks
– Social distancing
– Increased hand-washing stations and hand sanitizer dispensers
– Cashless transactions recommended
– Mobile ordering
– Virtual queues
➤Will it be safe to visit The Disneyland Resort when it reopens? – There’s no easy way to answer this question, obviously. Until there is an effective vaccine for COVID-19 and enough of the population gets the vaccine, there will always be a threat of the virus spreading.
That being said, I trust Disney to do everything possible to reopen their parks with minimal risk to their guests and Cast Members. Abiding by the safety procedures – social distancing, wearing masks, using hand sanitizer – will certainly minimize the risk of getting sick.
The only sure way to avoid contracting COVID-19 is to stay home and avoid contact with others. If you are immunocompromised or otherwise in a high risk group, I recommend staying away from any places with large public gatherings for the time being.
➤Will you be going to Disneyland once it reopens? – Yes, I will be going to Disneyland as soon as I can. But I fully intend to cooperate with any safety measures they put in place, including wearing a face mask and bringing hand sanitizer with me. I also usually don’t stay at Disneyland for more than a few hours, and I may skip attractions for a while. I’m honestly very content sitting on Main Street USA and soaking up the Disneyland atmosphere.
