Disneyland Resort announces dates for ticket sales, new reservation system ahead of April 30 reopening

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- With the announced reopening of Disneyland and Disney California Adventure less than a month away, officials on Tuesday released details about the theme parks' new reservation system and ticketing.

When the Anaheim parks reopen with limited capacity on April 30, guests will be required to make reservations for entry online and in advance, according to a post on the official Disney Parks Blog. Guests must have a valid ticket to make a reservation.

Admission will initially be available to California residents only, in groups no larger than 3 households, in accordance with health guidelines issued by California officials.

The Disneyland Resort reservation system is scheduled to launch on April 12. Parkgoers with existing tickets can then begin making reservations for the days that their tickets are valid. For those who don't currently have tickets, sales will resume three days later, on April 15.

Here are some key dates to keep in mind:
