    I am planning a trip to Disneyland but I don't have a lot of time on our trip.I am arriving mid afternoon and hoping to get half a day at Disneyland.If my flights are delayed our cancelled that morning how would be able to make changes/cancel tickets?

    Hi Nathan!

    Your trip is just around the corner, I'm so excited for you! I know that travel has been a little bit interesting lately, so I totally understand wanting to know what to do if your plans take a slight detour.

    I love being able to get right into the parks when I arrive at Disneyland Resort! Disneyland Theme Park Tickets are non-refundable, but you can absolutely cancel a park reservation and reschedule for a new day as long as park reservations are available. First, you should purchase tickets and make your park reservations. For your arrival date, I currently see availability for both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park!

    If you've already purchased tickets, you'll need to link them to your Disney account. I like to manage my tickets in the Disneyland Mobile App—this is how you'll show your tickets to enter the parks, and you can also use the app to purchase Disney Genie+ which I consider a must on short trips! When your park tickets are linked to your Disney account you'll be able to open the Disneyland Mobile App and see your park reservation on the home screen under "Future Plans". Tapping on your park reservation will guide you to the My Theme Park Reservations page where you will have the option to cancel a current reservation.

    Normally, once you've canceled the reservation you won't use you can make a new reservation for an available date and park. However, when you cancel on the day of the reservation then you won't be able to book a new reservation until the following day. For example, if you have a park ticket and reservation for January 13, and you cancel that reservation on January 13, then you won't be able to create a new reservation until January 14. Your new reservation will be subject to availability, which you can see on the Theme Park Reservation Availability calendar.    

    When you're planning, please remember that multi-day tickets purchased through Disneyland.com or the Disneyland app today must be used within 13 days of first use or by January 12, 2025, whichever occurs first.

    I'm hoping that you'll have some extra pixie dust for your travels and that you'll make it to the Disneyland Resort in plenty of time to enjoy the parks! You might consider other ways to save time, like Single Rider queues for select attractions and using Mobile Ordering to grab a quick snack! Safe travels, Nathan!

    Keep moving forward!
