Yesterday, Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California announced its phased reopening plan, which will begin on July 9 with Downtown Disney. Disneyland park and Disney’s California Adventure park will follow on July 17, Disneyland’s 65th anniversary.

On July 23, two of the three Disneyland Resort on-site hotels, Paradise Pier and the Grand Californian, will reopen to Guests. A reopening date for the Disneyland Hotel, which is getting a new DVC tower, has not yet been announced.

Ahead of these reopening dates, Disneyland has updated various cancellation policies to better serve Guests.
