We got some BIG news about Disneyland Resort earlier.
Due to new state guidelines, theme parks in California can reopen as early as April 1st, 2021. In response, Disneyland Resort President Ken Potrock stated that Disneyland would announce a reopening date soon. But if you were lost in excitement over visiting Disneyland again, you may have missed something important.
Starting on April 1st, California Governor Gavin Newsom’s new “Blueprint Refresh” allows theme parks large and small to reopen when their county has reached the red/substantial tier 2 risk category of COVID-19. However, according to the Orange County Register, the parks will initially only be open to California residents.
Over the next couple of weeks, updated guidelines will be developed in partnership with the theme parks themselves, and we should receive more details. But for now, you’ll only be able to visit Disneyland upon its reopening if you’re a California resident.
We’ll keep you posted with the latest as this situation evolves. Stay tuned to DFB for more Disney news!
