    How far in advance can I start to plan/book my trip to Disneyland? Originally scheduled trip was April 2020 but was cancelled. I am looking to book for April 2022 in hopes that we will be in a much better (post-COVID) situation.

    Hiya, Lori, and welcome back to planDisney! 

    It’s great to see you back here, but I’m so sorry it’s under these circumstances. I know how much time and preparation goes into planning a visit to the Happiest Place on Earth, so I understand just how frustrating this can be. But, I’m happy to see that you’re looking forward to the future and working towards rescheduling your upcoming visit. It’s going to feel so good to return to the Disneyland Resort when the time is right for you and your family! 

    As you know, the Disneyland Resort theme parks and Resort Hotels are currently closed as we await updates from local and state government officials. The Villas at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa will reopen on December 6, 2020 exclusively for Disney Vacation Club Members. We don’t know yet when the rest of the Grand Californian Hotel & Spa will reopen, or when the Disneyland Hotel or Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel will reopen. Currently, hotel reservations are only open for booking through December 31, 2020. Typically, reservations for the following year open late summer or early fall, but due to the circumstances of this year, 2021 reservations still haven’t been released at this time. I checked with a Cast Member, and she told me that you should be able to book your 2022 vacation by fall of 2021.

    Once the parks do reopen, keep in mind that reservations will be required. I recommend keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog, Disneyland.com, and the Disneyland app for all the latest updates and information. You can also call the Guest Information Ticket Sales and Service Team at (714) 781-4636, available seven days a week to help!

    In the meantime, if you’re looking to experience a taste of Disney magic, I recommend checking out shopDisney.com for all the latest holiday merchandise in the Holiday Shop. From adorable spirit jerseys, to festive headbands and mini backpacks, there’s something for everyone! I just visited Walt Disney World this past weekend, and picked up some adorable holiday plush and holiday-themed Disney's Cloth Face Masks to help make this holiday season a little bit merrier for my family!

    Wishing you good health, and many Disney adventures to come, Lori!
