With Disneyland Resort still temporarily closed due to the global pandemic, they are pushing back the date of when guests can begin making reservations. Though, we recently reported that Disneyland Resort could begin to reopen as Orange County Moves to stage three Governor Gavin Newsom’s reopening plan, it looks as though Disneyland Resort may not reopen until mid-July.

More Information Regarding Disney Parks Reopening

We recently reported that Disneyland Resort has begun surveying guests about the reopening of the Southern California theme parks, which you can read more about here.

With the health and safety measures being put in place at Shanghai Disneyland, which reopened its gates to guests on May 11, as well as the protocols at Disney Springs in Walt Disney World, which reopened on May 20, we could have an idea of how Disneyland Resort will proceed with the safety measures as well.

Shanghai Disneyland also implemented a new reservation system, which could be a sneak peek of how Disneyland Resort will handle reservations as well once they reopen to the public. Read more about the new reservation system here.
