One of Disneyland’s most popular offerings has finally reopened its doors for the first time since the pandemic.
Things at the Happiest Place on Earth have continuously come back to normal since the Park, unfortunately, had to close its gates due to the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020. Since Disneyland reopened in 2021, Guests have been able to hug their favorite characters, experience their favorite rides and attractions, and enjoy many other magical offerings at the Disney Parks. However, one beloved offering still hadn’t made its way back to the Park until today.
The traditional Silhouette Studio, located on Main Street, U.S.A., reopened its doors for the first time in forever, giving Guests the chance to add a lovely hand-crafted souvenir to their collection to remind them of their visit to the Happiest Place on Earth.
According to the official Disneyland website, this must-do experience for so many Guests reopens today, Friday, August 26th, from 12 pm to 8 pm local time. The Silhouette Studio will follow these operating hours from August 26th through September 1st.
However, starting September 2nd, the studio’s hours will change, opening from 8 am to Park close on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays and from noon to 8 pm on Mondays through Thursdays.
The official Disneyland website describes this magical tradition as follows:
Transform a magical day into a keepsake treasure, courtesy of silhouettes featuring your entire family. Watch in wonder as our artists create at a rate of 90 seconds per portrait—you can even tuck their work into its very own picture frame!
Disneyland’s Silhouette Studio on Main Street, U.S.A., was one of the last remaining locations in the Resort to remain closed during the ongoing phased reopening of the Parks.
