    Hello- We are planning a day trip to Disneyland. I’m unsure what the rules are after COVID. Must we reserve on a specific date??

    Hi Olga!

    Thanks for stopping by, I'm happy to help! Yes, Disneyland Resort is currently requiring reservations to enter the parks. But the process is pretty simple, I'm happy to walk you through it! Regarding other health restrictions, masks are currently optional. You can check here to find the most updated recommendations and advisories before your visit. 

    To visit the parks you'll need to create a Disney account online if you don't already have one. Then you can go ahead and purchase tickets—when you buy your tickets directly on the Disneyland website you can make your park reservations at the same time. Before buying tickets, I recommend checking the Theme Park Reservation Availability Calendar to make sure there are reservations available on the day you want to visit. I notice that you're hoping to visit on January 18, so far it looks like there are reservations available! But don't wait too long, because reservations do get booked up.

    After you've purchased tickets and made park reservations I recommend downloading the Disneyland Mobile App to keep planning! The app is the best way to see attraction wait times and entertainment schedules, plus it's a huge help in navigating the parks. Personally, I love to use the app to mobile order a quick snack and check for last-minute availability at some of our favorite dining locations

    Olga, your trip is just around the corner...but don't hesitate to ask if you have other questions!

    Keep moving forward!
