    I am a California Resident and would like to book a trip in June to visit Disneyland and stay at the Grand Californian. How do I do that?

    Hi Emily!

    Excitement has been building since the reopening announcement for the Disneyland Resort! I know I can't wait to be walking right down the middle of Main Street, U.S.A.  My family had to cancel our kids’ first visit to Disneyland last June, and we are excited to use those tickets once the parks reopen to those of us from out-of-state!

    Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa is scheduled to begin welcoming Guests on April 29, 2021, but currently, reservations are not open for public booking. I know many Guests are anxious to book a room for a magical visit, but Disney still hasn't announced when those reservations will open up, or when Guests will be able to purchase theme park tickets. Since the opening of the hotel itself is "just around the river bend", I am hopeful that general booking will begin very soon!

    I would continue to monitor the Disneyland reopening information pages and the Disney Parks Blog for updates and to watch for reopening announcements. I also find following Disneyland and the Disney Parks Blog Facebook Pages to be helpful. With the reopening scheduled soon, if you had your heart set on specific dates, I would even recommend checking the booking page for Disney's Grand Californian Resort & Spa daily in case you miss the announcement on social media.  

    I hope you can secure the reservation you are hoping for, and I look forward to us all returning to the Happiest Place on Earth very soon!
