The Downtown Disney District has been drawing big crowds on a regular basis since it began its phased reopening process.

Although Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park have been temporarily closed for over 6 months now, Downtown Disney’s restaurants and shops have begun to allow Guests to visit once again. California Governor Gavin Newsom’s tiered reopening plan has even allowed certain dining establishments to start offering limited indoor seating.

According to the Disneyland AP Twitter account, capacity crowds are expected at Anaheim’s Downtown Disney District again this weekend.

A Tweet this afternoon reads:

Downtown Disney Update: Due to limited capacity, we are occasionally pausing parking and entry into #DowntownDisney. Guests with dining reservations will be accommodated during this time. General entry will resume as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience!

If you are planning to visit Disneyland Resort this weekend or any time in the near future, be aware of these new health and safety protocols that have been implemented by The Walt Disney Company:

A variety of shopping and dining experiences has begun to reopen at the Downtown Disney District, including the World of Disney store.

We have implemented new health and safety measures based on guidance from health authorities, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and appropriate government agencies. 

For Cast Members, Operating Participant employees and Guests, there are 6 key things to expect when visiting the Downtown Disney District:

  • Parking at the Simba Lot only and clearly defined entrances to the Downtown Disney District
  • Temperature screenings prior to entry
  • Face coverings are required for Guests ages 2 and older
  • Physical distancing measures, including physically-distanced queues and seating, and physical barriers at select locations
  • Temporary operations modifications, including reduced hours at select locations and the suspension of entertainment offerings and high-touch interactive areas
  • An increased focus on cleaning and sanitation, including the addition of hand-washing stations and hand sanitizers in key areas

Since many of these measures are new, and may evolve, we want to be sure Guests, Cast Members and Operating Participant employees are aware of all these changes before they arrive.
