One for the moments we have all been waiting. It’s time to start making reservations for the happiest place on earth. Disneyland and Disney’s California will reopen on April 30th and we have some answers to some of the questions you may have about the reopening. Where can you park? Where can you eat? How do you get a ticket? Here is some information from the Disney Parks Blog.

Theme Park Reservations

You will have to make a reservation system beginning on April 12th. As of right now, you will only be able to make a reservation if you are a current California resident and in a group of no bigger than 3 households.

Here are some key dates to remember:

  • April 9: If you currently hold a theme park ticket, you can check available days for your 1-day ticket type beginning April 9 on Disneyland.com/ParksUpdates.
  • April 12: The theme park reservation system will open no earlier than 8 a.m. PT on April 12 and guests who already have valid theme park tickets may begin making park reservations.
  • April 15: Theme park ticket sales will resume no earlier than 8 a.m. PT on April 15, and guests without park tickets may begin purchasing tickets and making park reservations.

People who have a reservation for Disney’s Grand Californian will also need to have tickets and make a reservation in the new system. Guests who have park hopper tickets be able to park hop at 1:00 pm on the day of their stay (Depending on availability ). Folks with multi-day tickets will be required to make a separate park reservation for each day they plan to visit the theme parks.
