The Vacation Club Villas at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa will plan to reopen May 2. Paradise Pier Hotel and the Disneyland Hotel will reopen at a later date.

Disneyland Resort said it will manage attendance through a new theme park reservation system that requires all guests to obtain a reservation for park entry in advance.

It is due to the theme park capacity and will be significantly limited to comply with governmental requirements and promote physical distancing.

Theme park reservations will be limited and subject to availability and, until further notice, only California residents may visit the parks in line with current state guidelines.
