Disneyland Could Open April 1! What you need to know and what rides will be open.


Disneyland has been closed for almost a solid year and, while there are more important things to worry about these days, fans have been wondering when we'll all be able to go back (not including the new Touch of Disney food and merchandise event). 

Today we finally (pretty much) have an answer! It's April 1!

IF ORANGE COUNTY CAN GET INTO THE RED TIER, Disneyland can open on April first. Yay!! That's soon!!! But we have to remember that while the numbers are looking good, Orange County is still currently in purple, so we'll have to see if people can keep doing the right thing and not get derailed by St. Patrick's Day parties. 

There are of course going to be some restrictions:

  1. The parks can open at 15% capacity, so you can bet there'll be a reservation system in place.
  2. Parks (for now) would only be open for California residents.
  3. Outdoor dining only. So... no Blue Bayou. 
  4. Building capacity and time limitations will be set (maybe there'll lines to get into more popular indoor stores?).
  5. Fully and partially indoor rides can only open if they meet the building capacity and time limits. 

Thinking about number 5 above...we don't have any more details about these rules so we really don't know if they'll try to run fully indoor and partially indoor rides at a very limited capacity, or if they'll wait to open those. But we can tell you which rides are fully outdoors! We can pretty confidently say you can count on these opening. We can even tell you in alphabetical order!

Whenever they announce the ticketing and reservation system they'll surely be putting in place, please be patient! These types of things tend to have incredibly long wait times and have even been known to crash Disneyland's system (you'll know what we mean if you tried to get A Touch of Disney tickets yesterday).
