What You Need To Know To Buy and Reserve Your Time at Disneyland®
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, several changes have been introduced to the Disneyland® Resort to ensure the safety of all guests. New rules and protocols have been put in place according to the recommendations from the Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to ensure that guests can have a magical experience with their loved ones. The following are some of the Disneyland® must-knows to save time and minimize inconveniences to anyone planning a visit in the near future:
Tickets and Reservations
To gain access to the theme parks, all guests older than three years will need a valid ticket and a reservation for the same day and the specific theme park they plan to visit. Reservations can be made online or through the Disneyland® App up to 120 days in advance and may be available on a rolling basis to cater to the different types of tickets.
- Create or log in to your Disney® account and link your tickets to your account. If you are visiting the park as a group, you will need to link the other guests’ tickets to your account by entering their valid ticket numbers and the names of the ticket holders.
- Check the available reservation slots online and select a day and the specific theme park you want to visit. It is important to note that park reservations are limited and thus based on availability which can change until the reservation has been confirmed and finalized.
- Review your reservation online, agree to the terms and conditions and finally confirm it. Check your email account to ensure you have received your confirmation message.
Park Hopper and Multi-Day Tickets
Guests with park hopper tickets need to make a reservation for one of the parks they plan on visiting that day. They are required to visit the reserved theme park first and can then cross over to a different park of their choosing from 1 pm. This time is subject to change and guests are advised to check their Disney® app for updates. It is also important to note that access to the second theme park is limited by capacity.
Guests with multi-day tickets are required to make a reservation for each day of their ticket.
Health and Safety
All guests older than two years are advised to be fully vaccinated or have a negative Covid-19 test result prior to their visit. Guests who are not fully vaccinated are required to wear face masks whenever they are indoors, except in dining areas. Guests who have been fully vaccinated do not have to wear face masks.
In the Toy Story Parking Structure, which opened on June 18th, all guests are required to wear their face coverings while on the bus, whether fully vaccinated or not.
Good Neighbor Hotels
As Disneyland® gradually reopens after a 13-month closure due to the pandemic, guests can consider the following designated Disneyland® Resort Good Neighbor hotels located in Anaheim, California, for accommodation while visiting the park:
- Tropicana Inn and Suites: This hotel is conveniently located just across the street from the main entrance of Disneyland®, making it a great option for guests.
- Camelot Inn and Suites: This hotel is also located just across the street from Disneyland® Resort and is therefore within walking distance. Guests can also enjoy a splendid view of Disneyland®’s firework display and Matterhorn Bobsleds from the landing outside their rooms.
Modifications and Cancellations
Reservation modifications are not allowed, but guests can cancel their reservations and book new ones depending on availability. Unused single-day tickets meant to expire on December 3oth, 2020 or March 31st, 2021 have been extended to December 26th, 2021. Unused multi-day tickets set to expire on January 12th, 2021 or April 13th, 2021 have their expiration dates extended to December 16th, 2021 or 13 days after the first use.
