  (CNN) — It’s been a long year for Disneyland fans, but “The Happiest Place On Earth” is finally set to reopen its doors.

The Disney resort, which houses Disneyland and its sister theme park California Adventure, plans to reopen with limited capacity on April 30, the company announced on Wednesday.

Disneyland, the company’s flagship theme park located in Anaheim, California, has been closed more than a year because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

“The day all of us have long been waiting for is almost here,” Ken Potrock, president of the Disneyland Resort, said in a statement Wednesday. “We’re excited to have more than 10,000 cast members returning to work as we get ready to welcome our guests back to this happy place.”
