    We planned a trip CA from CO and I did not know you had to reserve a date. It is our main reason for going to CA I’d hate to disappoint my daughters, is there any other way to reserve a date? Can I be put on a waiting list if someone cancels? Please help!

    Hi Saira!

    Thank you for sending this Disneyland Resort vacation planning question to us hEAR at planDisney!

    Oh no! I am so sorry to hEAR (read?) that you're having a bit of ticket trouble, Saira! One of the reopening health & safety measures put in place last yEAR that is still around is the need for all guests to have a Park Pass Reservation in addition to a date-based Theme Park Admission Ticket. I agree that it's kind of confusing and I'm personally hoping it's a pandemic procedure that won't stick around too much longer. However, that hope doesn't help right now as you're supposed to be in sunny Southern California this weekend. The one good thing about Park Pass Reservations is that their status is fluid, so as other guests cancel or change their plans and move their reservations around, you might be able to snap up the openings they created. This does mean checking back every so often, and refreshing the Park Pass Reservation Calendar. The best way to scout this sEARch from wherever you happen to be today is from the Disneyland Mobile App.

    There's definitely hope to hold out for pixie-dust. Most guests won't start deciding to drop tomorrow's reservations until later today or even tomorrow morning. You might find more success in trying to book one Park Pass Reservation at a time vs. for everyone in your family. And one last crazy idea is that Guests staying at a Disneyland Resort Hotel have access to a different pool of Hotel Guest Park Pass Reservations that does still have availability for this weekend. It might be worth it to change your hotel to have a guarantee of getting in the parks. Lastly, and I know this might not be the most ideal option, but if you end up needing to shift the weekend that you visit, your Disneyland Theme Park Admission Tickets should be valid for at least six months to a year from the purchase date. We haven't received an official word for how long Park Pass Reservations will stick around, however, they do open up for booking your Disney Days 120 days in advance.

    I am so sorry that this didn't provide a definitive answer you were sEARching for, Saira. I'll cross my fingers and think some happy thoughts just like Tinker Belle. And if you have any more Disneyland Resort vacation planning questions, We're All Ears!
