    I just bought a ticket through ticketsatwork for my mother who recently had knee surgery and is planning to go to Disneyland park for our daughters birthday actual day January 9, I went in and the date is not open. tickets are not refundable

    Greetings Tanya! 

    Thanks for dropping by and welcome to planDisney!

    I am so pleased that you are already aware that you are required to make a Theme Park Reservation because you purchased your tickets through an authorized third-party supplier. Availability can vary from day to day as people modify or cancel their plans. I recommend checking the Availablity Calendar often. In some cases, I’ve even seen Guests obtain a same-day reservation. Keep checking and you may have luck securing your desired date.

    If you are unsuccessful, I encourage you to stay flexible with your plans. Perhaps you can visit the theme park the day before or after your daughter’s actual birthday and do another fun activity on January 9. May I recommend a character meal outside of the park? I recently enjoyed breakfast at Goofy’s Kitchen. The meal was delicious and the character interactions were so much fun. The restaurant is located in the Disneyland Hotel. Therefore, you do not need a theme park reservation to enjoy a meal there. You can make a dining reservation through the Disneyland Resort App or via the Disneyland website

    Also, don’t forget to grab a complimentary birthday button for your daughter. They are available at Guest Relations inside the theme parks or from the front desk at any of the Disneyland Resort Hotels. 

    Enjoy your magical celebration at “The Happiest Place on Earth!”
