    What if I book today and there’s no opening for visiting the parks we want to visit? Do I get a refund?

    Hi Wanda!

    Welcome to planDisney and hello my fellow Texan! Thank you so much for sending this question to us hEAR. I'm happy to be your planEAR today!

    Part of the Reopening of Disneyland Resort was the implementation of scheduling Park Pass Reservations to assist with guest levels and social distancing measures in each theme park. While it seems like a lot of extra work, I'm happy to report that you'll make your Park Pass Reservations at the same time that you select your Theme Park Tickets. You'll actually make these reservations before you click 'purchase' or even enter your credit card information. I'd love to walk you through the steps:

    ~In the Disneyland Theme Park Ticket purchase page, select the number of days you'd like to visit, the number of adult and child tickets you'll need for your party, and the type of ticket you'd like - either the kind that allows admission to only one park per day or a Park Hopper that allows for visits to both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park in the same Disney day. 
    ~Once those decisions have been made, click the blue button at the bottom that says 'Choose Your Dates'.
    ~The next page you'll see is the selection calendar for the next 120 days. (Here's the link to preview the calendar before you start the actual purchase process.) Each date will have an icon in it indicating the status of Park Pass Reservations. A pink castle means Disneyland Park is available for booking; a blue Ferris wheel means that Disney California Adventure Park has availability; a blue Ferris wheel hugging a pink castle means both parks are open for that day; and lastly, a gray diagonal line means both parks are booked for that specific day. Keep in mind that these openings reflect what's currently available at the time you're looking at the calendar. If you decide to back out and come back later the reservation options might be different.
    ~What you'll do on this calendar selection screen is click on the dates you plan on visiting Disneyland Resort, and directly under the calendar you'll click the blue button that says 'Reserve Dates.' You'll now be redirected to a new screen that will allow you to choose which theme park you'd like to visit each day (if you purchased the one-park-per-day option) or which park you'd like to start your day in if you are purchasing Park Hopper tickets. These selections are your Park Pass Reservations. 
    ~Once you click next you'll be asked if you'd like to add on Theme Park Parking or the brand new Disney Genie+ service. 
    ~Lastly you'll click 'Add to Cart' and be directed to your shopping cart where you can proceed with purchasing your selected tickets!

    I hope that this helped to clEAR things up a bit, Wanda!
