    Robert from FL Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    I am a Disney Vacation Club member who lives in Florida. I have a reservation for the Grand Californian in October. Will any exceptions be made for out of state residents to visit the parks?

    Hello, Robert and from one Disney Vacation Club Member to another, "welcome home!" 

    I'm glad you stopped by with this question as the announcement regarding the reopening of the Disneyland Resort had all of us here at planDisney smiling wider than Snow White in the forest and certainly whistling while we work

    Robert, I wish I could give a different answer, however due to state guidelines only California residents will be permitted to visit Disneyland Park and Disney's California Adventure Park. While it's possible circumstances (and state guidelines) may change before your reservation in October, I recommend erring on the side of caution and anticipating a park-free resort stay if you aren't able to (or don't wish to) modify your reservation. 

    Robert, I know this information is disappointing and I'll be crossing my fingers for you that we safely see out-of-state guests visiting these parks real soon. Whenever you do visit The Villas at Disney's Californian Hotel & Spa, I hope it's truly a fairytale. 

    Please come on back to planDisney with any other questions you might have,
