    When can start making reservations for Disneyland Park, and California Adventure Park? And how do we make the resvations?

    Welcome to planDisney, Sonya. Thanks for taking the time to drop by with your questions for us. 

    I’m more than happy to help you with navigating the new changes the Disneyland Resort is implementing. With the theme parks closed for more than a year, so many people are eager to return to a land of Magic and soak in all things Disney! I’m sure you’ve heard that Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park are opening on April 30, 2021. You’ll be able to make park reservations really soon.

    Sonya, if you already purchased tickets before the theme parks closed in March 2020 and were not able to use them, you can head to on April 12, 2021 to begin making park reservation for your upcoming trip. Be sure to link your previously purchased tickets to your Disney account prior to accessing the park reservation system. If you don’t have tickets yet, Hakuna Matata! You’ll be able to purchase tickets and make your park reservations starting April 15, 2021.

    Once you have your tickets linked to your Disney account, Sonya, you’ll: create your party of lucky folks who get to enjoy the parks with you, choose the date and theme park you wish to visit, then review your selections and confirm. Ta-Da! Once confirmed, you’re all set. You’ll be strolling down Main Street, U.S.A. with a Mickey pretzel in hand in no time!

    Oh and Sonya, make sure you have the latest version of Disneyland mobile app before you arrive to the Happiest Place on Earth. Many dining locations have mobile ordering and contactless payment. Also, if you’re interested, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will have a virtual queue that is only accessible via the Disneyland mobile app.

    I hope you’ll find this information useful. If you have additional questions, please don’t hesitate to visit us on planDisney again. We're all EARS!

    Have a magical day,

Meet the Panelist: Kiki, California

Greetings from Northern California!

I am also surrounded by fellow Disney-loving nurse friends whom I enjoy quick adults-only Disneyland Resort escapes with. Whether you are planning your once-in-a-lifetime family trip or a short adults-only getaway to the Happiest Place on Earth, I am here to help!
