On the heels of Walt Disney World's theme park reopening happening between July 11-14th, Disneyland has announced that it too will be reopening in July, with several phases announced. The Downtown Disney shopping district will be the first to reopen on July 9th, and then a little over a week later on July 17th, both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure will reopen. Finally, on July 23, Disney's Grand Californian Hotel and Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel will reopen. 

New restrictions at Disneyland will be similar to Walt Disney World

Like Walt Disney World, the Disneyland Resort will manage park attendance and capacity through a new theme park reservation system that will require all guests, including Annual Passholders, to obtain a reservation for park entry in advance. Disneyland has also announced that new ticket sales and Annual Passport sales and renewals have been halted as well. 

Another restriction that mirror's Walt Disney World is the cancellation of all parades, nighttime spectaculars and character meet and greets at Disneyland Resort until further notice. 

The only substantial deviation right now between Disneyland's and Walt Disney World's reopening plans is that Downtown Disney District will reopen all at once on July 9 with all locations, including the flagship World of Disney store, open for guests. 

No news about masks or temperature checks, yet

Interestingly, no news about required masks or temperature checks has been shared, but Disney has said that additional information on enhanced health and safety measures and operational changes for Disneyland Resort will be shared soon, pending governmental approval of the reopening plan. We'd imagine temperature checks and masks will eventually be required, but again, nothing has been confirmed just yet.
