    Jeffrey from CA Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    I purchased a package on July 24, with park hopper tickets and hotel arriving on Dec 16, planning on park days the 17th through the 19th and leaving on the 20th. The dates showed blank and I was told to check back at 120 days out. Now they show unavailable

    Hi Jeffrey! Thanks so much for bringing your question to us here at planDisney. Oh boy, you are in for such a treat visiting the Happiest Place on Earth during the merriest time of the year. You will love seeing Mickey and Minnie in their holiday best, enjoying some favorite attractions all dressed up for the holidays, and, of course, the season's sweet treats are not to be missed!

    A Disneyland Resort Vacation Package is a great way to experience all the magic of both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. The week before Christmas can have some hustle and bustle, so it's a good idea to lock those theme park reservations in early. I think I have some good news for you! Theme park reservations can be made up to 120 days ahead of time and your mid-December dates were not open for reservations until just a few days ago. I just took a look at the calendar myself and it looks like you can book reservations through December 18th as of today. December 19th will be available tomorrow, December 20th the following day, and so on. You can either book the reservations day by day as they become available or wait until your full window is open and book them all at one time. It's up to you! Reservations are subject to availability, so I love to see that you are trying to book these early!

    While there will be lots of holly jolly in the parks to enjoy, I love to recommend taking a midday break at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa. With the Craftsman-style architecture and sweeping ceilings in the lobby, this spot is a great place to catch your breath and let the magic of the season settle in around you. This lobby also happens to be the site of the beloved annual gingerbread house display! Grab a hot chocolate and soak it all in! This year, all three hotels of the Disneyland Resort will feature themed Christmas trees and you may even catch the occasional group of carolers making their way through each of the lobbies. I just love to think about the holidays spilling out of the parks and making their way through all corners of the Disneyland Resort!

    Jeffrey, I sure hope this was helpful in your planning! Be sure to EARmark your calendar at the 60-day mark as this is when dining reservations will open up to you! Once those reservations are in place, all that's left is some Disneyland daydreaming! If you have any more questions, you know where to find us here at planDisney!

    Be merry!

Hello from Philly! Disney Parks have been my heart and soul since my 3-year old feet first hit Main Street, U.S.A.

Whether it's park days with friends, multi-generational trips, toddling around with kids or flying solo, I'm ready to help you personalize the magic at the Happiest Place On Earth!
