    Hello- I have 3 reservations for May 3 but just noticed it is closing early for private event. I am very frustrated because there are NO other days available to change to because 2 of our tickets are So Cal passes and must be used by May 26. What can I do

    Hi Nicole,

    I hope you have enjoyed the Southern California Resident Weekday Ticket Offer so far. As a SoCal resident myself, I love that Disneyland Resort continues to offer us great ticket deals! It’s another perk of where we live that is almost as great as the weather!  

    If you have a reservation for May 3 and are worried about maximizing park time because of the early closure at 8PM due to Disneyland After Dark: Star Wars Nite, I can suggest a couple of options.

    The first option is to keep your original reservation date of May 3 but use other Disneyland Resort “hacks” to fit all your plans into the day. For example, you can “rope drop” that morning, which means you arrive extra early at the resort. Both Disneyland Resort theme parks begin to allow Guests inside around 30 minutes before the park officially opens. During this time, you won’t be able to ride attractions until the official park opens, but you can do some shopping on Main Street U.S.A. and walk around certain areas. By getting inside the park before the official park opens, you will be able to start riding attractions immediately. And you can go further by purchasing Genie+, which will grant you access to Lightning Lanes that provide shorter wait times for select attractions.

    The other option would be to switch your reservation to Disney California Adventure Park for May 3 if still available. The early closure will not impact this theme park and Disney California Adventure Park will remain open until 10PM on May 3. You may also continue to check the availability for Disneyland Park on weekdays, as reservations do occasionally open up last minute, even the day of.

    And my last recommendation would be to upgrade your ticket to a Magic Key. If you have enjoyed your time thus far, you might want to consider upgrading and enjoying Disneyland magic for the rest of the year. You can even upgrade yourself directly on the Disneyland Mobile App. Note, if you go with this option, your expiration date would be one year after the first used day of your 3-day ticket.

    Whatever option you choose, I hope you have a magical time with those you care for deeply. And if there is anything else we can help with, please come back to planDisney.

    Best wishes,
