How to Reserve Disneyland Tickets?

Disneyland reservations are limited and subject to availability. A new theme park reservation system was introduced that requires guests to book in advance within a limited-time ticketed experience (which has already sold out). ‘A Touch of Disney,’ the limited-time experience which has sold out, will go as planned from March 18 to April 19, 2021.

What Will Reopen?

It’s a phase-reopening, which means not all adventures will open. Rides will be closed, but guests will be able to shop, enjoy food and drinks and wave to Disney and Pixar characters. The Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and the Incredicoaster, Peter Pan’s Flight, Mater’s Junkyard Jamboree are a few thrilling adventures that will reopen. In addition, the Disneyland blog post also noted that reimagined Snow White’s Enchanted Wish would also open to guests for the very first time in its phase-wise reopening. Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel and Spa is set to reopen. The Downtown Disney District is currently open with select retail and dining locations.
