    Hello! It appears that park reservations for Disneyland are only available through January 8, 2023. Is there a time when more dates will open up? My understanding is that they should be available 120 days out, but that doesn't appear to be the case.

    Hi Jacob! Welcome to planDisney! 

    I love to see a fellow planner at heart, especially when it comes to solidifying your plans for a trip to the Happiest Place on Earth! Rest assured you are correct in thinking that theme park reservations can be made up to 120 days in advance. That being said, while the calendar may open up as early as 120 days in advance, that is not necessarily a hard date. I know, this might be a little disheartening when you are just trying to get those Disneyland ducks in a row. My guess is that you will see those January dates open up very soon! If you can hold on to some faith, trust, and patience and continue to check back and refresh that calendar, you will likely still be one of the first in line to get those reservations in place. The good news is that if you are unable to make reservations, your fellow Guests are unable to as well, so no one is filling up availability!

    You will be arriving just as the holly jolly of the holidays say goodbye for the season on January 8th. Between you and me, the week after the holiday season comes to an end is one of my favorite times of year to visit the parks. The crowds have dispersed a bit, and you will hopefully find yourself with a little more wiggle room in those Lightning Lanes and queues. 

    Let's put a few dates on your calendar as you gear up with your planning. Dining reservations and plans for Enchanting Extras like the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique or Savi's Workshop can be made as early as 60 days in advance. If there is something you have your heart set on, this is a good time to try to secure those reservations. Another date for your calendar is about six weeks ahead of your arrival. This is typically when the park hours and Entertainment Schedule are solidified and posted to the Disneyland website. Since you are missing peak season, definitely take a look at both of these when planning out your days as you may find some amended schedules due to the time of year. 

    Jacob, I sure hope this was helpful in your planning. Be sure to take a few moments throughout your trip to truly let it all sink in. It's in these quieter minutes that I usually find the most magic. You know where to find us if you have any more questions! We are always here for you at planDisney!

    Magic awaits!
