    When im looking at dates that are available to go to and i see a castle on it what does that mean

    Hello, Ariel!

    Welcome to planDisney. I am so glad that you sent us your question!

    The Theme Park Reservation Availability Calendar shows which theme parks are currently available for reservations on specific dates. Only Disneyland Park is available as a starting park when just a Sleeping Beauty Castle image appears on a day. Disney California Adventure Park is available when the Pixar Pal-A-Round image is listed (the blue circle with Mickey Mouse in the middle). When both pictures are there, Guests can make reservations at either park. Guests with Park Hopper Tickets or Magic Key passes can move between parks starting at 11:00 a.m. (subject to availability). 

    Did you know that dining reservations can be made up to 60 days in advance? When visiting Disneyland in the summer, I usually make a mid-day dining reservation to take a break from the warm weather. Availability for many table service restaurants disappears quickly, and I recommend making reservations as soon as they become available. Some of my favorite dining locations include Lamplight Lounge, Blue Bayou Restaurant, and Carnation Cafe. There are so many great options to choose from!

    Ariel, I hope you have a wonderful visit to Disneyland Resort! We hope to see you real soon!

    Magic Happens!
