    I’m trying to book tickets for the first week of December 2023 for my birthday when will available dates show up to book in advance?

    Howdy, Jennifer, and welcome to planDisney!

    Oh boy, I see that you're planning a birthday trip to the Disneyland Resort during one of the most magical times of the year, the Holiday Season! You are going to be in for a treat as the entire Resort is beautifully decorated to celebrate the spirit of the season and you might even see it snow in Southern California.

    Reservations are released on a rolling basis 120 days in advance. So if you are planning on traveling at the beginning of December, I would recommend that you check again around the beginning of August for available reservations. Please note that you can purchase tickets at any time even though your dates are not yet released. You would just need to modify your reservations when the time comes in August! 

    Don't forget to make your dining reservations 60 days in advance of your trip as well. I hope you're coming hungry, because the Festival of Holidays is scheduled to make its return this season and I can't wait to see what the Disney chefs have created for us this year! If you get a chance to try a Mickey Gingerbread cookie, do it! My biggest regret from last year is that I did not load up on these cookies to take home to my family. And since it's your birthday, be sure to pick up your Complimentary Birthday Button at City Hall so others can celebrate with you! 

    Jennifer, I hope you are having fun planning your trip and that we were able to help! If you need any further planning advice or tips, please feel free to reach out to us again anytime! We'd love to help you plan an absolutely magical trip!

    Wishing You a Great, Big, Beautiful Tomorrow!

Meet the Panelist: Al, California

Ahoy there from the heart of Steinbeck Country in central California! I've been visiting the Disneyland Resort since childhood and fell in love with the sense of absolute immersion that the Imagineers have achieved. My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean because where else can you go from a California day to an evening boat ride in the bayou with "salty old pirates"? I'm a veterinarian and an all-around Disney geek and enthusiast. I'd love to help you plan your next Disneyland trip! Learn More About Al
