    When will the Disney hotels open and how do I stay up to date on when tickets will be released to visit Disneyland, CA again?

    Welcome Deanna! Thank you for taking the time to stop by planDisney with your question for us.

    I cannot believe it’s been almost ONE year since Disneyland Resort theme parks and hotels closed due to the pandemic. So many people are eagerly waiting for the Disneyland Resort theme parks and hotels to reopen, myself included!

    Downtown Disney District is currently open and extended to include Buena Vista Street in Disney California Adventure park (through March 14, 2021). And starting March 18th, 2021, Disney California Adventure will host A Touch of Disney, a new limited-time experience for Guests to enjoy the sights, sounds, and flavors of Disney! During this fun experience, Guests will be able to roam around many parts of Disney California Adventure Park including Buena Vista Street, Hollywood Land, Grizzly Peak, Cars Land, Pacific Wharf, Pixar Pier, and Paradise Gardens Park. And Guests will run into various Characters while they’re there! I can’t wait to see my pal Mickey and hopefully Joy and Sadness also. Though attractions (rides) will remain closed during A Touch of Disney, carefully crafted entertainment, unique photo opportunities and many Character sightings will be available for Guests to enjoy! 

    Recently, there was an announcement The Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa is scheduled to reopen to Disney Vacation Club members starting May 2, 2021. I’m hoping with phased reopening of this hotel and introduction of A Touch of Disney, perhaps this might mean Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park can safely reopen really soon, along with the three on-site hotels for all Guests to enjoy!

    I recommend staying up to date by checking Disney Parks Blog and Disneyland.com for the latest park news and information. I can’t wait to return to the Happiest Place on Earth soon and stroll down Main Street USA, ride on all my favorite attractions, and enjoy a DOLE Whip at the Tiki Juice Bar in Adventureland. Deanna, what are you looking forward to when the theme parks and hotels reopen?

    If you have further questions for us, please don’t hesitate to stop by planDisney again!

    Sending you Pixie Dusts,

Meet the Panelist: Kiki, California

Greetings from Northern California! I have been fascinated by the magic of Disney since I was a little girl; now that I am a mother of two, I love watching my children experience Disney Parks through their own eyes. I am also surrounded by fellow Disney-loving nurse friends whom I enjoy quick adults-only Disneyland Resort escapes with. Whether you are planning your once-in-a-lifetime family trip or a short adults-only getaway to the Happiest Place on Earth, I am here to help!
