July 17th is a magical date for Disneyland fans- it is the very first day Disneyland opened its gates for visitors. July 17, 2020 is the first day the Disneyland will reopen after being closed due to Covid-19.
Theme park capacity will be significantly limited to comply with governmental requirements and promote physical distancing, the Disneyland Resort will manage attendance through a new theme park reservation system that will require all guests, including Annual Passholders, to obtain a reservation for park entry in advance. Theme park reservations will be subject to availability. More details about this new reservation system will be available soon, but will likely be similar to what was just announced for Walt Disney World visitors where those with resort reservations and linked tickets are given the first chance to book there park reservations, followed by Annual Passholders. At this time, there will also be a temporary pause on new ticket sales and Annual Passport sales and renewals.
Certain experiences that draw large group gatherings – such as parades and nighttime spectaculars – are temporarily suspended. While character meet and greets will be temporarily unavailable, characters will be in the parks – greeting gusts from a distance.
