    Good Morning I was planning on visiting Disneyland July 8 would you recommend purchasing tickets now or waiting until July availability is up?

    Hi Sylvia, 

    Thank you for taking the time to visit us here at planDisney with your great question.  I am so excited to hear that you are planning a visit to Disneyland Resort this summer, I'm sure you are going to make some wonderful memories with Mickey and the Gang!

    Since Theme Park Reservations have not opened up for your date, there is no real hurry to purchase Theme Park Tickets, but there are two ways of thinking regarding your upcoming purchase and visit.  First, since capacity is limited and you have a specific date in mind, waiting and checking the Theme Park Availability Calendar may be the way to go, to ensure there is availability on July 8 for your party.  However, if it were me and your dates were flexible, I would purchase my Theme Park Tickets prior to more Theme Park Tickets being released. It would be one less step to complete once additional Theme Park Reservations open up and you will be able to secure your Theme Park Reservations more quickly.  I like to make sure I have everything prepared so when the dates open, I can just click and go, for me it takes away some of the worry, I have done everything I can at the moment to plan for my upcoming visit. If by chance Theme Park Reservations are at capacity, I could always choose a different date.  The decision is up to you and how comfortable you feel with purchasing Theme Park Tickets without a guarantee you will be able to secure your Theme Park Reservations for that specific day since capacity is limited at this time. 

    While you are waiting for more Theme Park Reservations to be released, I recommend checking the Disney Parks Blog and the official Disneyland Resort website for the most up to date information regarding the phased  reopening of Disneyland Resort. 

    Whenever you decide to purchase your Theme Park Tickets, I sure hope you have a magical time at Disneyland Resort this summer Sylvia.  If you have any other questions, please come back to planDisney, we are always happy to help.
