    How do I reserve a room

    Hiya, Mark!

    Welcome to planDisney!

    Oh boy! How exciting that you're thinking of staying close to the magic of Disneyland Resort by getting a bed for your head at one of Disneyland's three Resort Hotels! There are a few ways that you can make a room-only reservation or book a Disneyland Resort Vacation Package:

    ~ The most traditional way is to sEARch for your desired Disney dates on the hotel booking portal. I will say it's pretty hard to find a last-minute room on a weekend, especially during the more popular times of the yEAR. However, if you shift your nights around a bit, like checking in on a Sunday and checking out on a Tuesday you might have more luck.  Pro Tip: Guests who book a room-only reservation have until five (5) days before their check-in date to make a modification or cancel to get their deposit back, so theoretically the best time to check for a possible impromptu stay would be the weekend before. 

    ~ You can call the Hotel Reservation helpline where they do have a better view of any potential open rooms, however, it's much faster to sEARch it out yourself online than to wait on hold. Their phone number is (714) 956-6425.

    ~ Lastly, check around with any memberships or points-based booking portals you might have, like through work, Costco, or a travel rewards credit card. Some of these have access to the same reservation system Disneyland uses, but with special perks for booking a Vacation Package, which is both a hotel room and theme park admission tickets

    Pro Tip: When you enter the size of your party, the website is only going to look for rooms that can comfortably sleep every single person; if you're attempting a multi-generational visit with 8 adults and 4 kids, the website is only going to display rooms that can safely sleep 12 or more. If this is your case, it's better to book multiple reservations broken up by those sleeping in each room, so one reservation of four, a second reservation of five, etc.

    I hope that this helped to clEAR up your question, Mark, and helped you to reserve some sweet Disneyland dreams. If this didn't help to answer your question, feel free to write us back!
