Disneyland plans to reopen April 30

Disneyland Resort in Anaheim will reopen on April 30 after being shuttered by the pandemic for more than a year.

The two theme parks will reopen with limited capacity—15% if Orange County remains in the red tier, or 25% if the region moves into the third, orange tier by that time.

The resort’s three theme parks will also reopen in a phased approach, with Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa plans reopening first on April 29 with limited capacity. The Vacation Club Villas at that hotel will open May 2; while Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel and the Disneyland Hotel will reopen at a later date.

More than 10,000 employees are in the process of returning to the park after being furloughed in recent months.

News of Disneyland’s reopening comes about a week after Governor Gavin Newsom’s “Blueprint Refresh,” which allows theme parks in the state to reopen as soon as April 1 if the counties they are located in are in at least the second, or red tier.

OC has been in the red tier since Sunday.
