Disney has officially shared the reopening guidelines for Downtown Disney at Disneyland Resort. Downtown Disney is set to reopen on July 9.
Many of these guidelines are expected based on Disneyland Resort’s previous announcements of the health and safety measures that will be in place throughout the resort’s phased reopening. Downtown Disney will be “following guidelines from health authorities and government agencies, as well as applying learnings from the phased reopening at Disney Springs in Florida to guide our reopening plans.” You can read more about Disney Spring’s current protocols in place here.
Disneyland Resort Public Relations Directly Michael Ramirez shared the guidelines on Disney Parks Blog. Here’s what you need to know if you are planning to visit Downtown Disney:
- Downtown Disney will be open daily from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., although the operating hours will vary depending on each location within the shopping, dining, and entertainment district.
- Guests can self-park at the Simba lot at Disneyland Drive and Katella Ave.
- Capacity will be limited, in addition to the limitations on parking and operating hours.
