“The Most Magical Place on Earth” reopened in July after nearly four months with new rules in place to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 including mandatory masks and social distancing.

The announcement comes as the Disneyland California theme park halted its annual pass program entirely. Disneyland made the announcement last week after it allowed county health officials to use its parking lot for a large-scale coronavirus vaccination site.
