Disneyland has FINALLY reopened! Today is a historic day for the Disneyland Resort, and beloved Disney characters came to celebrate with Guests.
Here is a look at which characters were out magic-making today! Note that although we saw all of these characters during our visit, Guests can also catch other characters in Disneyland Park and even more in Disney California Adventure Park. With these magical character appearances, you never know who you may find at the Happiest Place on Earth!
After Disneyland had been closed for over a year we knew we had to visit on opening day! After braving the long lines early in the morning to enter the park we were happy to see that there were plenty of our favorite characters inside the park to make us feel welcome — It truly felt like they were just as excited as we were to be back!
Guests can interact and take pictures with the characters from a safe distance! As you will see from our photos there are plenty of magical photo opportunities with plenty of characters out in the park. You can read the health and safety guidelines for Disneyland here.
Mickey Mouse, Minnie, Donald, and Goofy were all seen at the train station greeting Guest as they arrived in the park:
You can see even more photos of Mickey and his pals during the opening day of Disneyland here!
Chip and Dale were also having so much fun with Guests from the train station. If you love Disney characters, be sure and wait by the train station to see plenty of them:
Princesses at the Royal Theater, which is just to the left of Sleeping Beauty Castle, gave Guests a royal greeting! Much like at Disney World, the Princesses did not wear masks, but were safely socially distanced from any Guests.
We saw Princess Aurora, Ariel, Anna, Elsa, Elena of Avalor, and Snow White!
We also spotted Rapunzel with her frying pan in hand over in Fantasyland!
Her Majesty the Queen made an appearance later in the day, too.
The park was very well organized and the characters were well spaced out, which made snapping pictures of the characters a breeze.
We even caught Rey out and about in Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge.
Over in New Orleans Square and Adventureland, we caught Redd the Pirate and Princess Tiana.
We also spotted Miguel from Coco in Frontierland!
In the afternoon, Mickey and Minnie could be seen from their houses in Toontown.
We love seeing the characters out at Disneyland and hope to spot even more return to the Happiest Place on Earth in the future!
