After being closed for over one year, Disneyland will officially reopen in just a few weeks on April 30. Thousands of fans want to head to the Happiest Place on Earth on reopening day, and there are certainly a few ways to go about planning your visit — specifically when it comes to Disneyland ticket prices.
So, what do you need to know if you want to visit Disneyland on opening day? Here’s a breakdown of Disneyland ticket pricing, theme park reservation ability, and ticket options for April 30.
Opening Day Pricing and Ticket Options
There are a few ways to go about visiting Disneyland on opening day. Note that for the time being only California residents are permitted to visit. If you are looking to purchase tickets, your options will be:
- Single-day, one park per day ticket
- Single-day Park Hopper ticket
- Multi-day, one park per day ticket
- Multi-day Park Hopper ticket

If your goal is to visit Disneyland Park on April 30 — and you do not know when you will visit the Disneyland Resort theme parks again — then you are likely only looking to purchase a one-day ticket. April 30 is considered in the Tier 5 ticket type category for one-day tickets (whether the tickets are Park Hopper tickets or one park per day). Here’s how much it will cost for a single ticket:
- April 30 one day, one park ticket: $154 (Adult), $146 (Child)
- If you want to visit Disneyland Resort on April 30 and you only want to visit one park (Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park)
- April 30 one day Park Hopper ticket: $209 (Adult), $201 (Child)
- If you want to visit Disneyland Resort on April 30 and you want access to both parks (Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park)
However, if you want to visit Disneyland Park on April 30, and you also want to visit at least one more time within the same two-week period, then it will be worth it for you to purchase a multi-day ticket rather than multiple single-day tickets.
Since multi-day tickets are not tiered, you can purchase a ticket to visit the parks for two days or more, and one of those days can be April 30, reopening day. The only catch is you will have to complete the use of your multi-day ticket within 13 days of using the ticket for the first time. So, as long as you want to visit Disneyland Resort at least twice within the first two weeks of the theme parks reopening, then a multi-day ticket could be more cost-effective for you.
For example, a two-day ticket with admission to one park per day will cost less than purchasing two one-day Park Hopper tickets. To illustrate the benefit of purchasing multi-day tickets, here is how much it will cost for a two-day ticket that can be used on April 30 and beyond:
- Two day, one park per day ticket: $235 (Adult), $220 (Child)
- If you want to visit Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park on reopening day (April 30), you have to use your second ticket within 13 days later.
- Two day Park Hopper ticket: $290 (Adult), $275 (Child)
- If you want to visit both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park on reopening day (April 30), you have to use your second ticket within 13 days later.

Theme Park Reservation Availability
Disneyland Resort will be operating the theme parks at a limited capacity. However, even though existing ticket holders were able to make reservations for April 30 and beyond starting April 12, all dates are still available for booking. This is because, presumably, there are not enough existing ticket holders to snag every available spot to visit Disneyland and Disney California Adventure on reopening day.
Below is a screenshot of the Disneyland Resort theme park reservation availability calendar as of April 12 after 3 p.m. PST. Click here to view the up-to-date availability calendar for yourself.
Note that even though the theme parks are not going to be operating at 100% capacity, thousands of Disney fans will get to visit on reopening day. The number of Guests that Disney will be admitting to the parks will depend on the tier that Orange County is in. Currently, Orange County is in tier 3, the moderate tier, also known as the orange tier.
- In tier 2, the red tier, theme parks can operate at 15% capacity.
- In tier 3, the orange tier, theme parks can operate at 25% capacity.
- In tier 4, the yellow tier, theme parks can operate at 35% capacity.
Keep in mind, though, that Disney has not officially disclosed an exact capacity percentage that the Southern California Disney Parks will operate at. It can be assumed, however, that Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park will operate at 25% capacity since they are allowed to do so.
For context, in Florida, the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks operated at 25% capacity upon reopening in July 2020. Since then, capacity has been increased to 35%.
