Disneyland Resort has confirmed that Downtown Disney and two onsite hotels (Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa and Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel) will be reopening next month. The update was made on the official website today.
At the time of this article’s publication, the Disneyland website now states that only the reopening of Disneyland park and Disney California Adventure park await approval. Prior to this update, the website stated that Downtown Disney would reopen on July 9, but two onsite hotels were still pending state and local government approvals. Now, Downtown Disney and two of the three hotels are confirmed to be reopening next month. There is still no information about when the Disneyland Hotel will reopen.
The new verbiage was shared on the Experience Updates page of the Disneyland Resort website. See below:

The update on the Disneyland Resort website comes the day after unions expressed their disagreement with the reopening of the Disneyland Resort theme parks on July 17. After continuing their negotiations with Disney, a dozen unions came together to write a letter urging California Governor Gavin Newsom to reconsider the reopening dates of Disneyland and Disney California Adventure.
