Of all the attractions listed above that have yet to reopen, the one that fans are most eager to experience is the Disneyland Monorail. Due to protocols that have been in place since the theme parks reopened on April 30, the Disneyland Monorail could not operate. However, with social distancing ending and theme parks no longer being held to the same restrictions as they were, many experiences are returning. It’s unclear why the Disneyland Monorail will still be unavailable for the time being, but we will share more information when we know the details.

At this time, parades, fireworks, and other entertainment have not yet returned to the Disneyland Resort and are still suspended, but we have some hope for their return soon.

We will continue to update our website with more information on Disneyland Resort attraction operations as it becomes available. For the latest updates, follow Inside the Magic and visit the Disneyland Resort official website.
