    How do I know if they’re are any reservations available for April 11, 2022? We want to do a park hopper and start at Disneyland park as soon as you open.

    Hi Taryn! Welcome to planDisney. You are going to love visiting the Disneyland Resort in April! I'm a little biased as it is my birthday month, but when we lived locally I would always take a day or two at the parks to celebrate. The weather is beautiful that time of year and the parks definitely come alive with color in the spring!

    It's a great idea to check the theme park reservation calendar for availability ahead of buying tickets if you have a specific date in mind. Lucky for you, reservations can be made up to 120 days in advance, and, since we are within that window for April 11th, you'll be able to check availability today! Each ticket type has its own reservation system. When you open the calendar, you'll see that you can choose between two buttons - one for One Park Per Day tickets and one for Park Hopper tickets. Simply click on "Park Hopper Ticket Guests" and then scroll to April in the calendar by clicking the forward arrow. As of this minute, there is availability for both parks on April 11! With a Park Hopper, you will choose the park where you'd like to start your day with park hopping available after 1 p.m. When you purchase tickets, you will be prompted to make a reservation. Reservations are subject to availability, so I would try to make those arrangements as soon as you can. If for some reason, plans fall through for April 11th, you can cancel and modify your reservation to a new date. Your Park Hopper is valid through December 30, 2023 so you have plenty of time to plan a visit! 

    You sound like a fellow early riser heading to the park for opening, or as we like to call it "rope drop"! For me, this is one of the most magical times of day at Disneyland Park. There is so much excitement in the air as you and your fellow guests wait for those gates to open and so much possibility for the day ahead! I like to head straight for Space Mountain - there is nothing like a rocket launch to start your day! If you've upgraded your tickets to include Genie+, you'll be able to start reserving time-saving Lightning Lanes as soon as you scan into the parks. You'll find Lightning Lanes available at select attractions throughout Disneyland Park from the Matterhorn Bobsleds in Fantasyland to Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run in Galaxy's Edge. And don't forget to park hop on over to Disney California Adventure Park! You will be there during the Food & Wine Festival which runs from March 4 - April 26, 2022. Celebrate all things California from delicious food to drinks to live entertainment and even some culinary demonstrations with Disney chefs. They may be sharing a secret or two for you to take home!

    Taryn, there is so much magic waiting for you! If you have any other questions in your planning, feel free to reach back out to us. We are always here for you at planDisney

    Keep wishing on those stars,
