Currently, the theme parks of the Disneyland Resort are only open to California residents, reservations and valid tickets are required to enter each park, and capacity is strictly limited. But that hasn’t stopped true Disney fans from heading to the Southern California Disney Resort today in celebration of the grand reopening of Walt Disney’s original Magic Kingdom. Just as Disney shared, the magic is back, and we’re here to celebrate!

Disney’s Grand Californian Resort & Spa reopened one day prior on April 29, and the Downtown Disney District has been welcoming Guests back to the magic since it reopened on July 9, 2020, amid the ongoing pandemic.
