    We are excited to be at Disneyland for Christmas with four generations of Mouseketeers! We are staying on property. How soon can we book our dining, show and tour reservations? What are the Christmas Day park hours and dining options? Thank you! Deanna

    Hey there, Hi there, Ho there, Deanna!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'm so excited for your vacation to the Happiest Place on Earth! I can't wait for you to make wonderful memories during the Holiday season. Just thinking about the garland and decor down Main Street, U.S.A is giving me the warm fuzzies. You will also get to experience Christmas-themed attractions in both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. My absolute favorite is "it's a small world" Holiday.

    Table Service reservations including Dining Packages and Character meals are available to book 60 days in advance. This is the same whether you are staying on or off property. Also you can only book your reservations 60 days in advance for each individual day and not for your length of stay as at the Walt Disney World Resort. Since you are visiting during a popular time, I would make sure you mark your calendars to book right at 7:00 AM PST when phone lines open and online reservations become available.

    Tours at the Disneyland Resort are able to be booked 30 days in advance by calling (714) 781-8687. Since you are visiting during this special time of year, I suggest the "Holiday Time at the Disneyland Resort" Guided Tour which takes you through the details of both park's seasonal transformations.

    Park Hours as well as entertainment schedules are available about six weeks in advance on the Daily Events Schedule online, so I suggest checking back here closer to your trip for these details. You can also keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for Christmas announcements as your trip approaches.

    I hope this helps!
