    How do you get into the park when there are no reservations available? Can we just show up and get in?

    Hiya, Tasha! Welcome to planDisney!

    The Happiest Place on Earth just keeps getting happier! It does seem to be the place to be these days, as we are seeing many calendar days where the parks are fully booked! In response to the pandemic, the Disneyland Resort implemented many new health and safety measures, including the need to make park reservations before entering either Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park.

    Unfortunately, without making park reservations in advance, there is very little chance you'll be able to enter the park upon arrival. Your best option is to keep a close eye on the Theme Park Reservation Availability Calendar. Using this handy Mouseketool, you're able to see which parks are available to reserve each day. If you do not see availability on the day you'd like to visit, there is a chance that could change. As one Guest cancels their plans and park reservation, it becomes available for another Guest to book. If you keep checking the Theme Park Reservation Availability Calendar every day, maybe even a few times per day, you may just find that your dreams come true!

    Tasha, I will keep my ears crossed that you're able to find a theme park reservation on the day you'd like to visit. Whenever you're able to make your magical entrance, be sure to bring your autograph book! After a long hiatus from physical contact, Character Greetings have returned! Hugs, high-fives, autographs.. it's all back to help make everlasting memories during your visit!

    Hakuna Matata,
