    Hi, so I have planned my whole birthday trip on going to Disneyland and barely got the approval for the days and see that there’s no more available tickets for 10/14/22. I was wondering if there’s a waitlist I can be put on for 4 tickets or a # I can call?

    Hi Erick! Welcome to planDisney!

    I'm so sorry to hear that you're having trouble making theme park reservations for your upcoming Disney vacation. Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort is quite popular, so spots do tend to book up pretty quickly during this frightful time of year. Though I may not be able to deliver all the magical news you are hoping for, I can provide you with some options going forward.

    First, you can keep a close eye on the Theme Park Reservation Availability Calendar. Guests' plans are frequently changing, so when one Guest or group of Guests cancels a park reservation, those become available for others to book. While this is far from a guarantee, it is possible. Though there is no waitlist or way to be notified when this happens, it helps to save the Theme Park Reservation Availability Calendar somewhere on your phone or computer where you can open it up often to see if anything has changed. If you do happen to see theme park reservations become available for your preferred days, hop on those quickly! You'll want to purchase your theme park tickets right away, as these reservations could disappear just as quickly as they popped up!

    Next, there is a number for Ticket Services that you can call to speak with a Cast Member directly. Unfortunately, they will likely have the same answer, as their availability for theme park reservations is the same as what we see on the Theme Park Reservation Availability Calendar.

    Finally, you may consider an itinerary change for your vacation. Though it isn't convenient, you could choose different dates that have availability in the parks. You may also consider a more low-key Disneyland Resort vacation where you spend your time at the Disneyland Resort Hotels and Downtown Disney District. The Disneyland Resort Hotels do share that Disney magic, even providing Character Dining opportunities like Goofy's Kitchen and Storytellers Cafe. The Downtown Disney District is filled with shopping, dining, tasty treats and unique experiences. While you may not be screaming on your favorite thrill rides, there is plenty to keep you entertained at this outdoor entertainment district.

    Erick, I'm sorry I couldn't wave my magic wand and make your dreams come true today. I will keep wishing upon a star that you're able to find theme park reservations for your October trip!

    See ya real soon,
