    My husband and I are looking into going to Disneyland May 4-6. This is around our anniversary. Are there any reservations we need to make to ensure entry into the parks amidst May the 4th Day?

    Hey there, Hi there, Ho there, Samantha! 

    Welcome to planDisney! I'm so glad you found us here as you plan your stellar anniversary this Spring! So let's dive in to make sure all your Donald Ducks are in a row as you plan your visit!

    Samantha, it sounds like you're aware that May 4th is a holiday celebrated among Jedi across the galaxy. The Disneyland After Dark Event: Star Wars Nite will also take place that evening, causing an early closure for guests visiting the Disneyland Park during the day. But don't fret! If you have purchased a Park Hopper ticket for that day, then the Disney California Adventure Park is available to you until its regular closing time.

    So yes, Samantha, you will need to make theme park reservations for each day of your visit. Have you also considered making dining reservations to celebrate your special day? The Blue Bayou Restaurant is pure elegance. My husband and I shared our first anniversary meal there, and it's always easy to transport myself back to that moment—smelling the water, seeing the firefly lights, and watching Pirates of the Caribbean boats float by. Perhaps even order a Mickey Mouse Celebration Cake to make any feast more special.

    I hope this helps you craft an anniversary getaway that's truly out of this world, Samantha.  The Disneyland Resort is truly a magical place where dreams come true, and I'm sure you and your One True Love will soak up every ounce of it.
