    Can I book a resort hotel in Disneyland without tickets? I want to book in September 2021 and I am out of state?

    Hey there, hi there, Vivian! Thanks for stopping by planDisney where you're always welcome as can be. 

    Like you, I don't reside in the Golden State, so I'll just be California dreamin' for the time being. Currently, only Mickey Mouse's closest neighbors can make reservations to visit Disneyland Resort theme parks, but all are invited to enjoy a staycation at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. We are still waiting on a reopening date for the Disneyland Hotel and Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel, so stay tuned for when you could potentially book an escape at one of these properties.

    My advice is to go ahead and reserve your grand getaway now and keep watching the Disney Parks Blog or Experience Updates page for updates to the theme park California residency requirement. Even if you aren't able to visit Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park on this vacation, you'll find plenty to zip-a-dee-do during your trip. The Downtown Disney District is open to all and offers unique shopping and dining opportunities including an out of this galaxy, immersive merchandise experience at Star Wars™ Trading Post. Guests of Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa have access to the resort's top-notch restaurants and spalshtacular swimming pools. My family enjoyed several resort-only staycations at hotels in the Disney Resorts Collection this year, and we found more than enough to keep us busy outside of the theme parks.

    I hope this is helpful as you prepare to vacation on the Golden Coast this September. It'll be truly wonderful to return to a land of magic, and I wish you all the best. Thanks again for coming to see us at planDisney, and we'll see ya real soon!
