Walt Disney Co. announced Tuesday that tickets for its Southern California theme parks will go on sale to the public on April 15, according to media reports.

Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park will reopen on April 30 after being closed for more than a year due to the coronavirus pandemic. Both parks will operate at limited capacity while following health protocols, including wearing masks and social distancing.


“Until further notice, only California residents may visit the parks, in line with current state guidelines,” the Disney parks website said.


Visitors to the parks will need to obtain a reservation in advance. To enter the parks, a reservation and a valid admission for the same park on the same day will be needed by all visitors ages 3 and up.


According to a story in the Los Angeles Times, the cost of tickets will remain unchanged from last year’s prices.


In the past, they were anywhere from $235 to $415 for a 2-day to 5-day single park or park hopper ticket for adults. One-day tickets were priced in five tiers.


Shares of Disney (DIS) closed Tuesday  up $1.23, or more than a half of a percent, to $189.73 on the New York Stock Exchange, on a day when the Dow Jones industrial average closed down 0.3 percent and the Nasdaq closed down a fraction of a percent.
