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

    With the “opening” of Disneyland campus hotels, will the associated pools and restaurants/bars will be opened to guests as well? Thank you.

    It’s a small world after all, Elizabeth, and I’m so glad you found your way back to planDisney! I’d love to help you with your question, so let’s get started!

    Currently, the Hotels of the Disneyland Resort remain closed, and will be reopening at a later date. However, you can currently make reservations at both Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, and Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel starting on September 1, 2020. The Disneyland Hotel is also accepting reservations starting October 1, 2020. Unfortunately, these aren’t guaranteed reopening dates, though I wish they were! So, keep in mind that any reservations made at this time may need to be canceled or rescheduled if necessary. According to the “What to Expect” page, upon reopening, certain hotels and restaurants will be modified or unavailable, will have limited capacity, and will be subject to availability or even closure. So, at this time, we don’t know exactly which amenities and dining locations will be available when the Resort Hotels reopen. Once we have a firm reopening date, we'll be happy to provide more information on what to expect!

    To give you an idea what the reopening of the Resort Hotels may look like, we can take a look at the phased reopening of Downtown Disney District, which began last month. I’ve visited several times since then, and have enjoyed seeing the enhanced health and safety measures throughout the shops and dining locations I’ve visited. Check this page for a list of the shopping and dining locations that are currently open. Of the dining locations that are open, outdoor seating is currently the only option for Guests. In addition, shops are limiting the number of Guest allowed inside at a time, which has made me feel much more comfortable, too. Face coverings are required for all Guests ages 2 and up, and can only be removed while actively eating or drinking outside while stationary and physically distanced from others. 

    Like you, I am super eager to see the Resort Hotels back up and running! I recommend staying tuned to the Disney Parks Blog, and to the “What to Expect” page in order to stay up-to-date on the latest happenings around the Disneyland Resort. In the meantime, I’ll be dreaming of my next tropical beverage from Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar!

    Wishing you good health and Disney magic,
