Disney and Disneyland theme parks will reopen on November 9, 2019 for the first time in nearly three decades, Disney spokeswoman Karen Johnson said.
The theme parks, which are part of the Walt Disney World Resort chain, are one of the largest theme parks in the world, but have been closed for refurbishment due to the travel ban imposed by President Donald Trump.
On Friday, the travel restrictions were lifted, allowing visitors to return to Disneyland and the Disney Springs Resort.
Johnson said that Disney would open at least five of its theme parks on Friday, starting with Disneyland’s Fantasyland and the Fantasyland Fantasyland, where the first of a new theme park, Magic Kingdom, opened in 2020.
There will be another two new theme parks opening in 2020: a Disney Cruise Line attraction called Magic Kingdom Tomorrowland and a new attraction called Epcot Tomorrowland, which opened in 2021.
As of Tuesday, it was still unclear whether the two new attractions would open on or around the same day as the Disneyland or Disney Springs theme parks.
Disneyland is the largest amusement park in the United States, and its park system has been growing in popularity since its opening in 1989.
The parks have been visited by millions of visitors annually, and the theme parks have become the hub for a new generation of visitors who come to the parks to see and experience the park’s spectacular, themed buildings, restaurants and other attractions.
