More than a year after closing, Disneyland and California Adventure will reopen their doors on April 30 with limited capacity and fewer rides.
"We've seen the enthusiasm, the craving for people to return to our parks around the world," CEO Bob Chapek told CNBC on Wednesday. "We've been operating at Walt Disney World for about nine months, and there certainly is no shortage of demand."
The company is asking guests to make a reservation through Disneyland Resort's new system, although Disney did not say when it would go live.
Even Disney CEO Bob Chapek is surprised by the success of Disney Plus.
"What we didn't realize was the non-family appeal that a service like Disney Plus would have," Chapek said Monday, speaking at a Morgan Stanley tech conference. "Over 50% of our global [subscribers] don't have kids, and that is the big difference."
