Disneyland Sets Date for Reopening — Here’s What to Expect
In a blog post on Wednesday, Disneyland Resort announced that both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park will open with limited capacities on April 30, more than a year after their closure due to the COVID pandemic. The resort’s hotels will also begin a phased reopening, with Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa opening on April 29 and Disney Vacation Club Villas opening on May 2, while Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel and the ,Disneyland Hotel will reopen at a later date.
“The day all of us have long been waiting for is almost here,” said Ken Potrock, president of the ,Disneyland Resort. “We’re excited to have more than 10,000 cast members returning to work as we get ready to welcome our guests back to this happy place.” Disney emphasized those cast members as essential to the reopening, suggesting that their beloved characters will pop up in new and unexpected ways as they remain mindful of physical distancing. Indeed, cast members will be invited to the parks in advance of the April 30 reopening to be the first guests back.
Of course, the reopening will see a number of changes from pre-COVID times. Enhanced health and safety measures include physical distancing guidelines, so don’t count on seeing any parades or nighttime spectaculars until a later date. A number of dining locations within the park will have moved to mobile ordering on the official ,Disneyland app as the primary way to order food and drinks. On the brighter side, returning guests will be the first to enjoy the newly reimagined Snow White’s Enchanted Wish. Unfortunately, the Avengers Campus, originally slated to open in July 2020, will not be ready at reopening but is set to reopen later this year. ดูหนังออนไลน์
