    I received 2 1-day park hopper tickets for Disneyland as a gift from a non-profit last year. They will be valid through December of 2022 (such great news!). How do I make an online reservation with them? And are there perks for going on my birthday, 12/19?

    Hello Madison,

    "Hot Diggity Dog! That's swell!" That's what I think Mickey would say about you receiving gift theme park tickets to visit "The Happiest Place on Earth." I'm sure Mickey and all his pals will be excited to see you.

    The first step I suggest is to create a Disneyland Resort account if you haven't done so already. Next, you'll want to link your theme park tickets to your Disneyland Resort account. 

    Next comes the super fun part, and that's planning your visit. You likely know this, Madison, but I'll mention that you'll need both your theme park admission ticket (which you have, so that's great!) and a theme park reservation to visit a theme park. Start by taking a look at the Theme Park Reservation Availability calendar. The calendar will show you which theme parks have reservations available to select for dates you might want to visit. 

    Next, you can go to the Theme Park Tickets & Reservations tools. You'll see an option for "If you’ve already purchased a ticket: Make Park Reservations." You'll be guided through the theme park reservation steps. It's helpful to know that theme park reservations cannot be modified, but you can cancel your theme park reservation if needed through the "My Theme Park Reservations" feature, and then you can make a new theme park reservation based on availability.

    You can also link your theme park tickets and make your theme park reservations through the Disneyland Resort mobile app. From the app's main menu (the three stacked lines), tap "Tickets and Passes" and then tap "Link Tickets & Passes." After you link your tickets, you can select the "Ticket and Reservation Details" feature from the home screen and follow the steps to make your theme park reservations.

    It sounds like you might be celebrating your birthday when you visit the Disneyland Resort, and that's so fun to hear. Celebrating your birthday in Disney style makes for such a magical day. Be sure to pick up your birthday celebration button and enjoy all the birthday greetings throughout the day!

    Here's wishing you a fun and wonderful visit to the Disneyland Resort, Madison.

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
