    Hi planDisney! Disneyland told me my park reservations would be available today, January 20th for my May 24th arrival. When I went to book reservations, there are grey slashes through my dates I've booked. Do I wait a few days, or am I out of luck?

    Hello there, Kasey!

    Happy to have you here at planDisney! May is one of my all-time favorite months to visit the Disneyland Resort, you are in for a gorgeous trip!

    I just pulled up the Theme Park Reservation Availability Calendar and it looks like May is wide open! Reservations are opened on a rolling basis and sometimes it takes a few extra days to see availability pop up. Now is the perfect time to purchase tickets (if you need to) and make those park reservations! If you've already purchased tickets then you can go here to make your park reservations. 

    The weather in May is absolutely perfect, especially for nighttime spectaculars! The Disneyland Resort has just introduced two gorgeous new ones: World of Color — ONE and Wondrous Journeys. Making it from park opening to close can be a long day, so I recommend choosing a hotel within walking distance so you can go take a break in the afternoons and then enjoy late nights in the parks! You'll also be able to join in the sparkling Disney100 Celebration, which includes some seriously delicious food and the return of one of my very favorite parades: Magic Happens! Don't forget to make some dining reservations when you're 60 days away from your arrival!

    Cheers to your trip, Kasey! I hope it's a magical time!

    Keep moving forward!
