    My son surprised me for Christmas, tickets to California Adventures are sold out, how can I get a ticket for my minor son? I have a reservation for 12/31/21.

    Hi, Andrea, and Happy New Year! Welcome to planDisney, it’s great to see you here!

    What an amazing Christmas surprise, especially coming from your son! As a mom of three Mouseketeers, I’m so impressed! There’s simply nothing as special as spending the day at the Disneyland Resort with my children, so I can’t wait for you to experience this, too! 

    It looks like you were hoping to spend New Year’s Eve together at the Happiest Place on Earth, but were having trouble finding a theme park reservation for your son. From checking the availability calendar regularly, I’ve noticed that availability can change often, so I always recommend refreshing it every few hours just in case any availability has been added, or any cancellations have been made. If you weren’t able to make December 31 work, you can change your park reservation to another day with availability. I just checked the availability calendar, and it looks like every day in January has availability for Disney California Adventure Park currently, though of course this is subject to change at any time.

    Before your visit, I recommend downloading my favorite handy helper, the Disneyland app! My family enjoys using it to mobile order food, link our Disney PhotoPass photos, and utilize the new Disney Genie and Disney Genie+ services! You can also use it to check wait times, and discover the latest entertainment offerings so you don’t miss a thing!

    I hope everything works out for you to visit the Disneyland Resort with your son soon, Andrea! I can’t wait for you both to make magical memories together!
