All the Disney Parks around the world have announced their reopening dates, or have they? Yesterday, Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea announced would be reopening on July 1st. Disneyland wasn’t the last to announce its reopening plans, but it will be the last to reopen.
This makes it seem as though all the Disney Parks around the world will be reopened by next month, but this may not be the case.

Disneyland Resort Plans to Reopen Parks on July 17
Yes, you read that correct: Disneyland Resort has a plan to reopen its theme parks on July 17, the 65th anniversary date. The reopening of the theme parks has not been approved by California government yet, so there is no confirmation on if this will be the actual date of reopening.
With less than a month away and with the approval still pending, is this really possible? Whether it is or not it is, it means that Disneyland Resort will have been closed the longest out of all the Disney Parks around the world (125 days if the park reopens on July 17th.)
How Disneyland Resort is Preparing for Reopening
We do know that Downtown Disney at the Disneyland Resort will reopen on July 9th with health and safety guidelines. In these detailed measures, you can be sure that the theme parks are placing new protocols and procedures like these in place. Two of the three onsite hotels (Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa and Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel) have also been approved to reopen on July 23. When Disneyland and Disney California Adventure reopen, a new reservation system will be in place to ensure a limited capacity in the parks in order for physical distancing.
