    Do I have to make reservations for individual rides at the Disneyland Park and the Disneyland California Adventure Park?? And if so how do I make these reservations? Same question but regarding dining at some of the resorts with the characters.

    Hello Pedro,

    Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney. It's great to hear you're planning a visit to the Disneyland Resort!

    When you're planning your visit to the Disneyland Resort theme parks, it's helpful to know that you'll need both a valid theme park admission ticket and a valid theme park reservation. The great news is that the Theme Park Tickets & Reservations system helps you buy your theme park tickets and make your theme park reservations at the same time. You'll find that the system will walk you through the easy steps you need to take to make your theme park ticket selections and your theme park reservation selections. 

    With your Disneyland Resort theme park admission and your theme park reservation, you'll be able to enjoy all the magic of the theme parks, including the wonderful attractions and the exciting entertainment offerings.

    You'll find that most of the attractions make use of standby lines, so you won't need reservations to enjoy them. You can use the Disneyland Resort mobile app to easily take a look at the wait time for all the attractions (simply tap the map pin icon at the bottom of the app's menu to quickly see an interactive map of attractions and wait times.)

    There are two attractions you'll likely find on every Guest's must-do list, and these are WEB SLINGERS: A Spider-Man Adventure and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. These attractions make use of a virtual queue for Guests to enjoy the attractions. You can enter a virtual queue using the Disneyland Resort mobile app.

    My good friend and fellow planDisney panelist Missy offers some fun and helpful tips on how to join virtual queues to experience these spectacular attractions.  

    Enjoying a delicious Disneyland Resort meal while hanging out with your favorite Disney pals is always a fun idea. You can make your character dining reservations online at the individual dining locations using the "Check Availability" button like this one at Goofy's Kitchen. You'll want to check back for availability if you don't see a reservation available when you first take a look. 

    Pedro, here's wishing you a wonderful and fun time when you visit the Disneyland Resort!

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!
