New, free-standing signs guide guests to the entrance for theme parks and temperature screening.
Guests must wear face coverings, maintain physical distancing, and pass a temperature screening.
Guest Relations Cast Members greet guests as they approach the temperature screening.
Hoag Medical Group staff mans the temperature screening station. A sign shows proper face covering use. Disney also reminds guests to refrain from offensive language and to follow park rules.
Before the COVID-19 pandemic, guests staying at the Grand Californian could take advantage of the hotel’s dedicated entrance to Disney California Adventure. This gate was a real perk. Now, hotel guests cannot enter Disney California Adventure here. However, they may return to the hotel through what is now solely a park exit.
Instead, guests will need to enter the parks via Downtown Disney District, joining other guests in lining up for park entry — including Disney California Adventure.
Hand sanitizer stations and additional signage have been added. A directional sign points guests to Disneyland. Guests looking to enter Disney California Adventure will need to walk a bit further to do so for the foreseeable future.
