    Hello! If I book a hotel/ticket package, do I have to pay in full to make my park reservations, or can I do it as soon as I book and pay the deposit? Thx

    Hi Kristina!

    Welcome to planDisney! Thank you for asking this Disneyland Resort vacation planning question to us hEAR. I'm happy to be your planEAR today!

    I'm very happy to say, Kristina, that when you book a ticket + room Package at either a Disneyland Resort Hotel or Disneyland Good Neighbor Hotel, you may start booking your Park Pass Reservations as soon as your booking window opens 60 days in advance of your desired Disney days. As long as you have paid the minimum amount needed for a deposit, you do not need to have paid the reservation in full just yet.

    Do note that you can only book your park pass reservations as the dates fall within that 60-day window. This means you can either wait to log on and book until your very last park day is also available or you can log in multiple times and book each Park Pass Reservation date individually. It's up to you, but you also shouldn't have to worry about not being able to snag a reservation within the first week or two that they're available. And just because I'm hEAR spouting off other Disney planning facts, hEARs a look at the Park Pass Reservation calendar available for guests of a Disneyland Resort Hotel! These reservations actually pull from a different pool of reservations than what other guests may have access to, so there's even less need to worry about all of your Disney dates being claimed right away.

    Pro Tip: I see that you're visiting in late June, Kristina. Be sure to bring a reusable water bottle that you can refill all day long as it can get pretty hot. And you'll definitely want to book a Disneyland Resort Hotel with a pool so you can stay cool during the heat of the day. Did you know that guests of a Disneyland Resort Hotel have access to the pool on their check-in and check-out day, even if their guest room isn't quite ready or even after they've checked out? Be sure to keep your swim stuff in your carry-on as there are changing rooms and even shower areas available in each pool deck!

    I hope that this helped to clEAR up your question, Kristina! Be sure to check out the official planDisney Instagram account for even more tips and tricks. And if you have any more Disneyland Resort vacation planning questions, We're All Ears!
