Tickets to Disneyland
Disneyland has released additional information about the theme park reservation system that is already in place at Walt Disney world and will be implemented in Disneyland when the parks open on April 30. In order to access the parks, guests will need both a valid ticket AND a theme park reservation for that day. Theme Park Reservations are only good for the day in which they are intended and are not transferrable.
All guests aged 3 and older will need both a valid ticket and reservation for the same day. There will be two different dates for ticket sales to resume. Those who already have valid tickets and those wishing to buy new tickets.
For those holding valid tickets purchased prior to park shutdowns on March 14th, you will be able to book your admission on April 12th. On April 9th, you’ll be able to check online to see what days are available for your ticket(s). Tickets will go on sale no earlier than 8am, so you’ll want to start checking then. Expiration dates for most tickets were recently extended and you can find more information on Disneyland’s ticket page.
For those wishing to purchase new tickets, sales will begin April 15th. Tickets will go on sale no earlier than 8am. Once they do, we expect popular dates to sell out fast.
Disneyland Theme Park Ticket Prices
Prices will not be changing from what they were when the theme parks closed in 2020. The pricing structure is as follows:
How to Make a Theme Park Reservation
You’ll visit Disneyland.com. If you don’t have tickets, you’ll need to buy those first. If you have multiple tickets you will be booking, you’ll have to created a “Party.” Then follow the procedures for booking a park reservation.
Unlike at Walt Disney World, Park-hopping will be available on day 1 of the parks reopening. There are changes however, guests won’t be able to switch parks until 1pm and must first start at the park at which they have a theme park reservation for that day.
MaxPass will NOT be available and there is currently no announced timeline for when that service will return. There will be a virtual queuing system that will be used for Rise of the Resistance.
Theme Park Hours for BOTH Disneyland and California Adventure
Upon reopening, daily park hours for Disneyland park and Disney California Adventure park are currently planned to be 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Visit Disneyland.com for operating hours on the day you wish to visit, as they are subject to change.
Guests with valid theme park admission tickets who are planning a stay at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa will also need to book a theme park reservation, as a hotel stay does not guarantee a theme park reservation.
If you plan to visit the theme parks during your stay, get your theme park reservation prior to making your hotel reservation. A room reservation does not guarantee a theme park reservation.
Guests with Park Hopper tickets may choose, pending availability, which theme park to start their day, when making their theme park reservations, and then will be able to visit the other park beginning at 1 p.m. that day. Guests with multi-day tickets will be required to make a separate park reservation for each day they plan to visit the theme parks.
Park Hours: Upon reopening, daily park hours for Disneyland park and Disney California Adventure park are currently planned to be 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Visit Disneyland.com for operating hours on the day you wish to visit, as they are subject to change.
Parking: Theme park parking will be available at the Mickey & Friends and Pixar Pals parking structures, located off Disneyland Drive.
Dining: For a contactless and cashless experience, our mobile order service — available exclusively on the Disneyland App* — makes it easy for you to plan ahead, order, and pay for food and beverages at most quick service restaurants inside the theme parks. In order to foster physical distancing during this time, Disney will plan to reopen dining bookings for select locations on April 22, with limited capacity. You will be able to book your dining reservation 60 days in advance on Disneyland.com or with the Disneyland App, subject to availability.
The Grand Californian Hotel reservations will resume April 15th. However, having a reservation does not guarantee admission into the parks. You’ll still need to book your ticket and make a park reservation separately.
For room reservations and travel packages, visit Disneyland.com or contact your travel professional starting April 15 for stays beginning April 29. Theme park reservations will need to be made separately.
Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
