    I’m planning my 50th birthday/ and our 30th wedding anniversary trip to Disneyland for next year, September. When can I start making reservations and payments on our vacation?

    Hello, Valerie! 

    Thank you for bringing your great question to us here at planDisney. It sounds like you’re planning quite a magical Disneyland Resort vacation with so much to celebrate!  

    Theme park reservations can currently be made up to 180 days in advance of your visit, so if you’ll be traveling in the middle of September, plan to purchase your theme park tickets in mid-March. Reservations at the three Disneyland Resort Hotels become available for booking approximately 120 days in advance, so you’d be able to secure your accommodations in mid-May. If you’d like to enjoy any table-service meals, Guests can generally begin booking advance dining reservations online at disneyland.com or via the Disneyland mobile app up to 60 days in advance. 

    That said, the schedule is a bit different if you plan to purchase a Disneyland Resort Vacation Package. Bookings for these are currently available only for dates through the end of 2024, and an official announcement about when 2025 dates will open hasn’t been made yet. In the recent past, bookings for the coming year opened in the summertime, so I expect that we will receive word soon. When you purchase a vacation package, you’re able to make payments after an initial deposit and pay off your trip gradually, which can be a helpful budgeting tool. Plus, packages currently include a Magical Extras Savings Card that offers discounts at select dining and merchandise locations in the Downtown Disney District

    I hope this information is helpful, Valerie, and that you have the most wonderful time celebrating your milestone birthday and your wedding anniversary at the Happiest Place on Earth next fall! Please visit us again and write back with more questions as your planning continues.

    Wishing you magic,
