    Hiya, Andrew!

    Welcome to planDisney!

    Oh, dear! I'm so sorry to hEAR that you're having a bit of a pre-vacation planning panic! I'm sadly unable to peek inside your My Disneyland Account or Disneyland Mobile App to see which kind of Theme Park Admission Tickets you have, or your planned Disney dates. I'm also checking the current Park Pass Reservation Availability Calendar and this month is already very full; the Holidays at Disneyland Resort are a very popular time of yEAR.

    Your best bet at this point will be to speak with a Cast Member in person at the Guest Relations window which is located to the left of the Disney California Adventure Park entrance turnstiles. Cast Members in the Ticket Booths might also be able to assist, but I usually find that the lines are a bit shorter at Guest Relations. You can also try to call the Disneyland Ticket Helpline at (714) 781-4636, but if you're already in town, it might be faster to stop by than stay on hold.

    Pro Tip: While it might look like everything for the next few days is full, check back in the morning of each and every Disney day. I noticed that today at 9:00 A.M. PST that there were Park Pass Reservation openings for Disney California Adventure Park when yesterday they too showed as booked solid; if you have Park Hopper Tickets you could start your day in this park and then switch over to Disneyland Park after 1:00 P.M. I can't guarantee same-day openings for all of your desired dates, but it's at least something.

    I'm so sorry that this answer wasn't more helpful, Andrew. I'm going to cross all of my crossables and think happy thoughts with plenty of pixie dust for you and your party!
