The Disneyland Resort will be opening its gates to California Residents starting April 30th. Both California Adventure Park and Disneyland Park will be open for guests to enjoy their attractions, dining and shopping. While there have been rumors that indoor rides will not open when the parks do, these were put to rest by us in late March and it’s now been confirmed by Disney who released a list of attractions that won’t be open when the parks do.
Many of the attractions that won’t be reopening include several that are currently undergoing refurbishments including the Jungle Cruise and Matterhorn Bobsleds. Most are shows that, for health reasons, will remain closed until COVID restrictions are reduced or lifted.
