Here’s everything you need to know about the California Adventure and Disneyland reopening, how to get an amusement park reservation and ticket – and when annual passes might be making a comeback.
Disneyland and California Adventure are open: what you need to know
Disney’s two California theme parks reopened April 30, following the soft opening of the parks from Tuesday, April 27 to cast members and their guests.
Here’s what you need to know now:
- Accompanied by an amusement park, issued by California on March 5, Disneyland was allowed to reopen as Orange County in the red, or “ substantial ” level state from April 1. As of May 18, 2021, Orange County is in the yellow level, only 1.5 new coronavirus cases per day per 100,000 people, with a 0.9% positive rate on the test results.
- Now that it is below the yellow layer, there is a capacity of 35% in the parks and a capacity of 25% for indoor spaces.
- All levels – red, orange, and yellow – allow only California visitors to Disneyland.
- California will scrap the tier system on June 15, meaning anyone can visit the parks.
- To enter Disneyland of California Adventure, you need both a ticket and a theme park reservation for the same day.
- Park hours are daily from 9am to 7pm – but if you have a park reservation and ticket, Disneyland gives you access to the virtual queue for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance wherever you are that day at 7am.

There is no tiered system for multi-day tickets. Disneyland has not yet released tickets for dates after June 30.
The return of Disneyland annual passes
Ken Potrock, Disneyland president, recently said on the D23 podcast that the annual passes would return by the end of 2021.
Potrock said Disneyland’s annual passes are due to expire due to capacity constraints and to “reinvent an annual pass program that is not only based on the past few decades, but is built on the way our guests and our fans intended to use the parks in the future. “
“We are working on that now and we will clearly launch something before the end of the year,” said Potrock. “It’s going to be an exciting new program that I think the people and our biggest fans – and frankly our most loyal fans – I think will be very responsive.”
Disneyland canceled the cardholder program on Jan. 14, saying at the time that it was “developing new membership offers” for the reopening. Those who had annual passes as of March 14, 2020 are now referred to as “Legacy Pass holders” and will continue to receive discounts when shopping or dining at Downtown Disney for the time being.
How to Get a Disneyland Reservation
Once you get a ticket, you need a reservation for the days you plan to go. The online reservation system was launched on April 12 and is now live for anyone with a ticket.
How to get an amusement park reservation:
- Log into your Disney Parks app to link tickets from your family or friends so you’re all in one group.
- Access to the reservation system online – but only if you have a valid ticket.
- Select the day and theme park you want to visit.
- If you plan to jump between the two parks, you can choose which park to start the day in – then you can visit the other park from 1 p.m. that day.
- Check and confirm.
