    My family and I are planning a trip in mid October and would like to get 5 day hopper tickets. I'm reading about reservations needed and rides not being open. How would I reserve the tickets and will rides be open in October? Aaron

    Hey Aaron!

    Welcome to planDisney!

    It makes me so excited to see guests planning trips again! October is a wonderful time to visit the Happiest Place on Earth and you’ll be happy you chose October to go. Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort is so much fun. You’ll experience special treats, Halloween themed décor and you’re sure to have a ghoulish good time. Details haven’t been released for 2021, but I’m sure it will be as great as ever.

    Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park will be reopening to California residents starting April 30, 2021. Most attractions will indeed be opening later this month so unless something happens to close the parks again, attractions will be open for your trip in October as allowed with health and safety in mind. 

    A theme park reservation will be needed to enter the parks and you can make a reservation once tickets have been purchased. Ticket sales and theme park reservations for new purchasers will begin April 15, 2021 and reservations can be made about 60 days ahead. As you can see, it’s a bit early for an October theme park reservation but you’ve got the right idea getting all the information you need now.

    Well Aaron, feel free to check in with us again at a later date.

    Remember, always believe in the Magic!
