California Says Out of State Visitors Can Go to Theme Parks, Disneyland Says Nope

California can now welcome out of state guests to theme parks. The caveat is that visitors need to be fully vaccinated. This is all according to an update to Gov. Gavin Newsom’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy. Previously, theme park attendance was limited to California residents.

The updated policy means that individual theme parks can now make their own policies regarding out of state guests. The California Attractions and Parks Association affirmed this new policy saying “individual parks may update their own responsible reopening plans in accordance with state and local public health regulations.”

For many travelers, there was an initial excitement that they could now be booking tickets and reservations for Disneyland and Disney California Adventure. However, at this time the Disneyland Resort has not changed its policy. It will only allow California residents to visit when it reopens on April 30, 2021.

For those who do want to visit the Disneyland Resort, both a valid ticket and reservation is required to visit either of its park. There are also health and safety protocols in place that must be observed as well.
