    I want to purchase a ticket on May 20th, but online it doesn't look their are any reservations available. I tried to call, but the phones were busy. What are my options?

    Hi Bronte! Welcome to planDisney!

    I see that you're ready to take a magic carpet ride around the Disneyland Resort theme parks in a few weeks! And I can say, the magic is certainly alive, especially with the return of many of our favorite Nighttime Spectaculars. World of Color, Main Street Electrical Parade and Disneyland Forever Fireworks have all returned to the Happiest Place on Earth! Even better, you can check out this Foodie Guide to Nighttime Spectaculars to find some tasty treats to enjoy while you watch one of these magical evening show!

    Bronte, you are required to make theme park reservations to enter either of the two parks. Though the date you are hoping to visit is currently sold out, there is still a chance you could visit. Guests change their plans often. When one Guest cancels a theme park reservation, it becomes available for another Guest to reserve. There is not a notification system to find out when a reservation becomes available, but if you keep checking the Theme Park Reservation Availability Calendar, you may just find that your wish has been granted! I suggest checking the availability each day, even a few times a day. If you do see your preferred date become available, hop over to the Disneyland Resort Website right away to purchase tickets. These dates will likely go quickly!

    Trust me, Bronte, if I could rub a magic lamp and make your wish a reality, I'd do so in a heartbeat! But, instead, I'll keep my fingers crossed that you're able to find theme park reservation availability on the date you'd like to stay!

    Have a magical day,
