Disney California Adventure Park is getting a breather in March.
The park is set for a limited reopening mid-March for a “limited-time ticketed experience” of outdoor dining, the company said Monday.
One thousand Disneyland Resort cast members will return to work after almost a year since the park shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Cast members received the news via a letter from Disneyland Resort President Ken Potrock, which also market the 20th anniversary of the park.
The park, however, does not have an official reopening date and attractions will not be operational during this experience.
“What I’m most thrilled about is that this initiative — along with the recent reopening of our outdoor dining on Buena Vista Street — enables us to bring about 1,000 cast members back to work,” Potrock said. “While that is clearly not all we want to accomplish, it’s a start. Teams are working as we speak to start recalling identified cast in the coming weeks.”

More:California legislators introduce bill to hasten Disneyland’s reopening
Approximately 350 employees have returned to work with the reopening of select Downtown Disney District dining, following the lift of the regional stay-at-home order.
California Assemblywomen Sharon Quirk Silva, D-Buena Park, and Suzette Valladares, R-Santa Clarita, introduced a bipartisan bill aimed at hastening the reopening of Disneyland, which has been shuttered since March, and other California theme parks.
The bill proposes to move larger theme parks, including Disneyland, to California’s orange tier, which is one of the benchmark levels for reopening amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
