    Hi there. I'm trying to figure out if I can make a reservation for California Adventures for Friday, Jan 26 for two people. A little confused...Also my 15 year old daughter has Down syndrome and she was approved for a special pass last time.

    Hi ya, Jill!

    Welcome to planDisney! I know sometimes the details of park tickets and reservations can be complicated. I'd be happy to be your planning sidekick!

    To visit the theme parks each guest will need a valid theme park ticket and a theme park reservation. You can purchase your ticket on the Disneyland website and make your theme park reservation at the same time! Taking a look at the Theme Park Reservation Availability Calendar it seems like there are reservations available on the day you want to visit, so I'd go ahead and follow these steps to purchase your tickets:

    1. Head to the Disneyland tickets page
    2. Choose your ticket (you'll need a Standard Theme Park Ticket)
    3. Click the number of days you want to visit the parks
    4. Add the number of adult tickets and child tickets that you need
    5. Pick your ticket type, either a Park Hopper Ticket or a One Park Per Day Ticket
    6. Click "Continue"
    7. Reserve your ticket date by clicking the day on the calendar that you want to visit
    8. Scroll down a bit and choose which park you want to visit (or visit first if you are buying Park Hopper tickets)
    9. Scroll down and click "Continue"
    10. Add Disney Genie+ Service and/or a parking pass to your ticket order
    11. Scroll down and click "Continue"
    12. The next page shows your cart, where you can click "Continue" to complete your purchase
    Once you have your tickets and park reservations you are welcome to request a video chat to meet with a Cast Member about Disability Access Service advance registration. Keep in mind that your daughter will need to be present for the video chat and you must have the chat at least two days prior to your visit. You are also welcome to visit Guest Relations when you get to the park to register in person.

    Whew, that looks like a lot of information! If you have any trouble you can always call the "Tickets" phone number listed online to get some extra help from a Cast Member. You'll be visiting Disney California Adventure Park just in time for Lunar New Year! I hope you'll have time to stop by the Wishing Wall and leave a happy thought or a wish for 2024. 

    Have a wonderful time with your daughter, Jill! She's lucky to have a fairy godmother like you!

    Keep moving forward!
