    Hello! Some of my favorite rides will be closed on Aug 16-18th and reservations for Blue Bayou and lamplight lounge is completely blocked. Tried to get magic key and can’t get that either :(. Can you tell me what will be open between both parks and idea.

    Hey there Leah,

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you for your question! I'm thrilled to hear you'll be visiting the Disneyland Resort in a little over a month - sorry to hear you're bummed about some of the planned closures.

    The Hours & Events Calendar is my favorite tool for seeing things like park hours, planned entertainment, and attractions and restaurants that are planned to be down for refurbishment.

    When I look at the dates of your upcoming trip, I do see much of Critter Country still closed for refurbishment as work continues on the Haunted Mansion updates and Tiana's Bayou Adventure reimagining in Disneyland Park, but much of the rest of both parks will still be ready for you to enjoy! In fact, the only currently planned attraction to be closed for refurbishment in Disney California Adventure Park during your trip is Animation Academy.

    As for your dining reservations, it can certainly be tough to secure those early reservations for the more popular spots like Blue Bayou Restaurant and Lamplight Lounge. My recommendation there would be to keep periodically checking as you get closer to your trip to see if anything opens up. If not, you can also check the Mobile Dine Walk-up Availability through the Disneyland Resort mobile app while you're in the parks! This is typically how I get the reservations for the popular spots when I visit.

    Additionally, I also would recommend keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog to read more about all the fun things that will be happening around the Happiest Place on Earth when you're there.

    Thanks again for your question, Leah! I hope you enjoy your visit to the Disneyland Resort next month!

    Have a Magical Day,
