    We want to stay at the Disneyland hotel in California next April, 9th - 13 th , when will booking become available please? When is payment due, or do you need a deposit?

    Hello, Nicola! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I am giddy that you are planning on staying at the Disneyland Hotel next April as it is my favorite Disneyland Resort Hotel! This hotel is brimming with nostalgia, exquisite decor, and classic Disney charm. Reservations for next year should be available sometime this summer, although exact dates haven't been released yet. I suggest checking again in July.

    When reservations do become available, you have a few options for payment. If you are booking a vacation package, you may pay in full or pay a $200 deposit to secure your reservation. You can then make payments up until 30 days prior to arrival at which point full payment is due. If you plan to make a room-only reservation (and purchase tickets separately later), you can also pay in full or pay a deposit equal to one night's rate plus tax. Payments can then be made up until the time you check in.

    When you arrive at the Disneyland Hotel, take some time to explore all the historic displays throughout the lobby and the different towers. Also, duck into Trader Sam's Enchanted Tiki Bar for a drink and maybe a quick bite to eat if you are able. Finally, if you happen to love Dole Whips like I do, you can purchase these delicious treats at The Coffee House located near Goofy's Kitchen!

    You are going to love, love, love this hotel and the Disneyland Resort! Happy planning!
