According to a post on Disney Parks blog, capacity will be “significantly limited to comply with governmental requirements.” Attendance will be managed through a new reservation system. To enter the park each guest must have a reservation and a valid admission.
Only California residents are eligible to attend the park at this time.
In addition to classic rides like Peter Pan’s Flight, new attractions will be unveiled too, like Snow White’s Enchanted Wish. Chapek said, even with the capped capacity, “We’ll be able to operate at a point to maintain a great guest experience.”
Leading up to the reopening, the soldout limited-time event called “A Touch of Disney” will be held from March 18 to April 19.
The state of California had previously told Disneyland to operate at 15% capacity of its fire code occupancy. The entirety of Disneyland was closed indefinitely on March 14, 2020, due to the pandemic.
However, Downtown Disney District has been operating at limited capacity and Disney’s California Adventure will begin allowing limited capacity on March 18.
Since January, Disneyland has been operating as a mass vaccination site. Disney World, located in Orlando, Florida, has been open since last July.
