    We are coming for NYE. We have park hopper tickets and reserved our entry the day. I read if you leave the park you may not be granted re-entry if it reaches max capacity, and NYE this could happen, but will our park reservation save our “spot?” to reenter

    Hi Lily!

    Welcome to planDisney! Congratulations on booking a Disney Park Pass for New Year's Eve at the Disneyland Resort. New Year's Eve events at the Disney Parks are always very popular with Guests. While we currently do not know what the activities or entertainment will be for New Year's Eve, we do know that Disney Park Passes tend to sell out quickly. There are NYE countdowns within both the Disneyland Park and Disney’s California Adventure Park. At Disneyland, countdowns historically occurred on Rivers of America and Sleeping Beauty Castle. In Disney’s California Adventure Park, countdowns have occurred at Paradise Gardens Park and within Hollywood Land.

    While I would recommend park hopping during any Disneyland Resort visit, New Year's Eve would be an outlier. It is best for you to head to the theme park early and prepare to remain there for the duration of the day. If you leave the park, you may not be allowed back in if the park is at capacity. In previous years, both Disneyland theme parks have closed to Guests, despite having Disney Park Passes, due to capacity reached. I recommend you bring extra layers, as the evening hours might be a bit chilly while you wait to celebrate the beginning of 2023!

    I truly hope this helps you plan a most wonderful stay at the Happiest Place on Earth! Be sure to visit us again for any future Disney vacation planning advice.
