    Do you know if WDW and Disneyland are going to be handled the same way as they are right now when it’s 2021? I’m still not sure what to expect in about a year from now.

    Hello Isabella!  Thank you for bringing your question to planDisney.

    As you may be aware, Walt Disney World Resort began its phased reopening of the parks last month with enhanced health and safety measures in place.  To foster physical distancing, some experiences have been modified or may remain closed.

    At this time, Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park remain closed.  While we hope they may be able to reopen prior to 2021 pending state and local government approval, no target opening date for these parks has been announced.  The Downtown Disney District is currently open.

    I know many of us are eager to get back to our happy place.  Some Walt Disney World Guests who have experienced "Returning to a World of Magic" in recent weeks have enjoyed light crowds and low wait times for attractions, as well as some new surprises, such as pop-up Character Cavalcades.  Other Guests prefer to wait until their favorite shows, character greetings, and nighttime spectaculars have resumed.

    Isabella, I don't think any of us know what to expect a year from now.  When I think back to this time a year ago, I never would have imagined our current situation.  I am confident that Disney Parks will continually evaluate local and world conditions with guidance from health authorities, and adjust operations accordingly.  Protecting the health and safety of Guests and Cast Members is a priority.  With a little Faith, Trust, and Pixie Dust, I'm certain all the magic of Disney Parks will return someday.  We all hope that day will be soon.

    To enjoy some Disney magic from home, turn to the Disney Parks Blog.  Here you'll find recipes for iconic Disney Parks snacks,  Imagineering stories, updates from the parks, and other #DisneyMagicMoments.

    Please feel free to visit us at planDisney with any additional questions you may have.  We are always happy to help.
