The Disneyland Resort has officially announced when out of state Guests will be able to enter the theme parks. This is a very exciting update as since the theme parks officially reopened on April 30, the California Disney Parks were only open to California residents, and Guests were advised to bring proof of residency.
Here is what you need to know if you are planning a trip to Disneyland Resort and live outside of California.
Here is the official announcement from Disney Parks Blog:
Today, we’re pleased to announce that beginning June 15, 2021, we will once again be able to welcome travelers from outside the state of California back to our theme parks! Out-of-state visitors may now begin booking their return to the parks on Disneyland.com. Until June 15, all guests visiting the Disneyland Resort must be California residents visiting in groups no larger than 3 households.
While it is not required to be vaccinated in order to enter Disneyland or Disney California Adventure Disney did say it was “strongly recommended” by the state of California. You can read all of Disneyland’s current health and safety procedures before you visit here.
This is huge news as Disneyland is gearing up to open a brand new land inside of Disney California Adventure, Avengers Campus. Avengers Campus is set to open on June 4, so only a little over a week after the land opens is when out of state Guests will be able to enjoy the new addition to the park.
It is important to remember that even though out of state Guests will be able to enter Disneyland, the Resort is still requiring advanced online reservations in addition to valid theme park admission. So in addition to the news that Disneyland will now be welcoming out-of-state Guests on June 15, the window for online reservations has been extended to September. You can read more about the updated reservation window here.
This is one giant step closer to “normal” operations for the Disneyland Resort after it experienced an unprecedented year-long closure due to the ongoing pandemic. However, as a large vaccine rollout across the United States has proven to be successful, more and more Disney Parks fans are able to return to the theme parks.
If you want to visit the Disneyland Resort remember that Downtown Disney is currently open. Downtown Disney is free to enter and does not require an advanced online reservation.
