The bad news, any attractions that bring large crowds such as their parades and firework shows will remain on hold.

Disneyland hotels will reopen with limited capacity beginning April 29. Disneyland wanted to reopen in July 2020 but had to wait due to a spike in coronavirus cases causing state officials to keep theme parks closed.

All theme parks in California including Disneyland, California Adventure, Knotts Berry Farm, Six Flags, and Universal Studios have been closed since March 2020.

A few theme parks have been allowed to host food events such as Knott’s Berry annual Boysenberry at Knotts Berry Farm and Touch of Disney which opened this past weekend.
