However beginning November 19th, guests will be able to step foot back into Disney’s California Adventure for the first time in 8 months. As an extension to Downtown Disney at the Disneyland Resort, Buena Vista Street will be re-opening for shopping and dining experiences. Due to more of the resort slowly re-opening, Disney will begin to charge guests who park in the Simba parking lot a $10 parking fee. Disneyland Annual Passport perks will not be applicable towards the parking fee at this time.
