    Will the Rides be open in April?

    Welcome to planDisney, Linda. Thanks for taking the time to visit us.

    Can you believe it’s been a year since our beloved Disneyland Resort theme parks closed due to the ongoing pandemic? Besides missing the yummy Disney snacks, I also miss all the attractions-- cruising down Route 66 on Radiator Springs Racers, zooming by on Matterhorn Bobsleds just to name a few. Linda, it sounds like you’re also excited to get back to the Disneyland Resort theme parks and soak in all the Disney magic as well!

    At this time the Disneyland Resort theme parks remain closed due to the ongoing pandemic. Starting March 18th, 2021, Disney California Adventure Park 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 also run into various Characters while they’re there! However, attractions (rides) will remain closed during this event.
    Linda, I’m happy to report that Disney Management recently announced its goal of having Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park reopen with limited capacity earlier than initially expected, possibly by late April. At this time, no official reopening date has been announced yet. When that happens, I bet more information will also be released about new ticket sales, reopening guidelines (for example, which attractions or amenities remain unavailable due to state and local health mandates), and how Guests can make park reservations prior to entry into the theme parks.

    I recommend staying up to date with the latest park news and information by visiting the Disney Parks Blog or Disneyland.com. As you begin planning your upcoming trip to the Happiest Place on Earth, Linda, please visit us on planDisney again for tips and advice or if you have more questions for us.

    Have a magical day,

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!
