Theme Park of the Day: Knott's Berry Farm

Disneyland Hotel to Reopen in July

May 20, 2021, 1:29 PM · The Disneyland Hotel will reopen to guests on July 2, the Disneyland Resort announced today.

Disneyland's original hotel has been closed since March 2020 due to the pandemic and has remained closed since the Disneyland and Disney California Adventure theme parks reopened last month. It will be the final of Disneyland's three on-site hotels to return, following the Disney's Grand California Resort & Spa, which reopened with the parks, and Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel, which will reopen June 15. Reservations are now available via Disneyland.com.

The Fantasy Tower will be the first Disneyland Hotel tower to reopen. Disney has upgraded upholstery and fabrics throughout the hotel during its closure. Guest rooms now feature a fireworks pattern in the carpet and new platform beds, to maximize storage. Corridor floorings now feature patterns inspired by the art of Mary Blair with graphic elements themed to the theme park land the tower is named after: Fantasyland, Adventureland, or Frontierland.

Also opening with the hotel will be Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar, Tangaroa Terrace Tropical Bar & Grill, and the Coffee House. Mobile ordering will be available for Tangaroa Terrace and Coffee House. No word yet on reopening dates the hotel's other restaurants: Steakhouse 55 and Goofy's Kitchen.

Note that Disneyland Resort hotel reservations do not guarantee theme park admission. Hotels guests will need to book tickets and make reservations for the dates they wish to visit to enter the parks.

So we booked a room for four nights at the Grand Californian for August (yes, it cost more than my mortgage for the month), and so we must wait until "after May 30" to try and reserve our park tickets.

It looks like it won't be a problem, as there is a surprising amount of ticket availability. What we're hoping for, of course, is that the parks have begun operating with enough capacity by then to trigger the reintroduction of fast passes, and, super fingers-crossed, magic morning hours.

We love to game the system and are darn good at it. If I have to wait in standby for every ride, that's going to be a very different experience, especially for the little ones.

Disney Park is a great place to spend a vacation. But unfortunately, this pandemic crisis challenges our every activity and therefore, many organizations have been partially or completely closed. Mostly, the traveling sector is being affected badly. Reopening hotels, parks have been giving some hope to us. I am a student in the tourism and hospitality management department, and I have to study at home now. As I spend a lot of time at home, I write about traveling a lot (you can find more samples here on different topics). Thanks for sharing this information. I hope everything will be running like before and I will visit Disneyland in July!
