    When can I make my Disneyland and CA Adventure park reservations? We arrive 5/2/2024. I looked today (180 days out) but all dates are still grayed out. If it matters, I am on the East Coast. Thanks.

    Hello again, Wanda, and welcome back to planDisney!

    We sure do love seeing you back here and I'm thrilled to find that you'll be traveling to the West Coast to visit the Disneyland Resort! I love welcoming Walt Disney World Resort veterans to Walt's original Park. There's just something special about Disneyland Park and you can still see his hand in the design choices and layout of this Park. 

    Reservations windows were just extended to 180 days in advance for regular Theme Park Ticket holders, so you should have been able to make your reservations. They are released on a rolling basis, so perhaps there was a slight delay in their rollout. When I now check the Reservation Calendar, your dates are open for both 1 Park Per Day and Park Hopper Tickets. You should be able to make your reservations if you check again. However, if you are a Magic Key Holder, please note that reservations are still only available up to 90 days in advance. 

    When you purchase tickets through the Disneyland website, reservations are automatically created for you at Checkout. One common error I see is that guests are trying to make reservations when they already hold a reservation for that day, thus causing the date to appear grayed out. You can check your currently held reservations by going to Ticket and Reservation Details and clicking on "Make or Modify Park Reservations."

    Don't forget to make your dining reservations 60 days in advance! If I ever see an open slot for Lamplight Lounge or Blue Bayou Restaurant, I would book that immediately! If you want to see a piece of Park history, go into the foyer of The Disneyland Story presenting Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln and you'll see the park bench on which Walt Disney was sitting when he conceived of Disneyland Park! And of course, that attraction features one of Walt's favorite Presidents!

    Wanda, I hope that you are able to make your reservations without issue and, as always, please return if you have any more questions. You're always welcome at planDisney and we'll see ya real soon! Until next time!

    Wishing You a Great, Big, Beautiful Tomorrow!

Meet the Panelist: Al, California

Ahoy there from the heart of Steinbeck Country in central California! I've been visiting the Disneyland Resort since childhood and fell in love with the sense of absolute immersion that the Imagineers have achieved. My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean because where else can you go from a California day to an evening boat ride in the bayou with "salty old pirates"? I'm a veterinarian and an all-around Disney geek and enthusiast. I'd love to help you plan your next Disneyland trip! Learn More About Al
