Another Disney Vacation Club resort now has a reopening date.
Disneyland Resort plans to begin its reopening process on July 9 with the Downtown Disney shopping district. On July 17--the 65th anniversary of the Disneyland theme park--both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure will reopen to guests. Finally, on July 23, Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa and Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel will reopen.
Expect theme park reopening plans to feature many of the processes and restrictions which have been detailed for Walt Disney World including social distancing, limited daily attendance and increase cleaning protocols. Guests--including Annual Passholders-- will be required to secure an advance reservation in order to visit the theme parks.
Character meet and greets, parades and fireworks displays will remain unavailable.
Disney Vacation Club's Villas at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa are included in the July 23rd hotel reopening. Disneyland Hotel will remain closed at present.
These dates are tentative, and subject to review and approval by local and state health officials.
Following the Grand Californian reopening, Aulani, Disney Vacation Club Villas will remain the only Disney Vacation Club property still closed. Disney's Vero Beach Resort and Disney's Hilton head Island Resort are scheduled to open next Monday, June 15. All DVC locations at Walt Disney World will follow a week later on June 22.
