“The happiest place on earth” has been closed for a year due to the pandemic and we’ve got some good news for you—California’s Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park will be reopening at the end of this month on April 30th. While this sure is exciting, it’s worth noting that there are some safety measures that have been put into place that will affect admissions and the way you visit the park. Here’s what you need to know before taking a trip to Disneyland.

We have to mention that the park will only be open to California residents and at a limited capacity. In addition, guests will have to make reservations and purchase an admission ticket.

Starting April 12th, the theme park system will go live on the Disneyland website and guests with existing theme park tickets can make reservations for the days their tickets are valid. Beginning April 15th, tickets and reservations will be open to everyone else.

Upon reopening, Disneyland will have strict safety measures in place including required face coverings, strict cleanings, temperature screenings, barriers and signage for social distancing, contactless payment options, and mobile ordering of food and drinks. Parades and nighttime specials won’t be returning on April 30th and character encounters will remain socially distant.

While there are changes, there are still some things to get excited about including Disneyland’s Show White-themed ride which got a makeover, and the Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance ride, which was only open for a few months before the park closed due to the pandemic.
