Disneyland is finally open! The California Disney parks have been closed since mid-March 2020, making it a little over a full year since guests have been able to walk through the gates at Walt’s original Disneyland park and Disney California Adventure.
See Disneyland’s reopening day celebration video:
“To all who come to this happy place: welcome. Disneyland is your land. Here age relives fond memories of the past, and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future. Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams, and the hard facts that have created America, with the hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration to all the world.”— Walt Disney (Disneyland Opening Day Speech)
Disneyland first opened on July 17, 1955 and has rarely ever closed in its 66 year existence. It’s hard to believe that Disneyland was closed for so long, but we are so glad to see it finally open again today!
