Things to know when Disneyland Paris opens (again)

Disneyland Paris will reopen its gates again on June 17, 2021 after the resort was closed last October. Read our review of when the resort opened back in July 2020. Below a list of things to keep in mind for when the resort opens. Do note that while we do our best to update this list as good possible, it could be that things change last minute.

Safety and Health Measures

Just like the first time the resort reopened, safety and health measures will be enforced. As authorities recommend the wearing of an appropriate face covering in public spaces, Disneyland Paris asks all guests ages 6 and older to do so.

At the moment it seems that all available slots have been handed out, but more might become available closer to the date you want to visit as capacity is added, or reservations are cancelled.

Restrictions for AP reservations

The resort has announced that reservations made for Annual Passes will be restricted. Each Annual Pass can hold three active reservations. Any extra days will be automatically cancelled.
