For the first time in a long time, a new sense of hope is coming to Californians. After going through most of the vaccination tiers that have been put in place, the COVID-19 vaccine eligibility will open to all adults over 50 on April 1, and all adults over 16 on April 15. This news means that even more adults will have the chance to be vaccinated before Disneyland reopens on April 30!
Of course, Disneyland has played a big role in getting the COVID-19 vaccine to Orange County residents. The Disneyland Resort has turned one of the Harbor parking lots into a vaccination center. After opening earlier this year, and now converting to a drive-through experience, Disneyland has been working hard to help get Californians back to any sense of normalcy.
While Disneyland plans to reopen to guests on April 30, the mask and physical distancing guidelines will remain in place for all guests, even those who have received the vaccine.
Face coverings are required for all Guests (ages 2 and up), Cast Members and Operating Participant employees, including those who have received a COVID-19 vaccine. Please bring your own face coverings and wear them at all times. You may remove your face covering while actively eating or drinking, but you must be stationary and maintain appropriate physical distancing.
All face coverings (whether disposable or reusable) must:
- Be made with at least 2 layers of breathable material
- Fully cover the nose and mouth and secure under the chin
- Fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
- Be secured with ties or ear loops and allow the Guest to remain hands-free
At this time, neck gaiters, open-chin triangle bandanas, and face coverings containing valves, mesh material or holes of any kind are not acceptable face coverings.
Costume masks are also not considered appropriate and are prohibited from being worn, in alignment with our existing rules.
Face coverings may have an integrated transparent plastic panel to aid in viewing the wearer’s mouth. These face coverings must:
- Be a fabric face covering featuring a solid plastic panel containing no openings that is attached to the fabric on all sides using tight knit stitching
- Meet all face covering requirements listed above
The use of face coverings is not a substitute for physical distancing.
