    Hi! I am staying at the Grand Californian over Christmas this year. I thought reservations would be open 60 days out from the first day of my stay for the duration of my trip, but they haven't. Has Disneyland changed the reservations?

    Hi Frances! Welcome back to planDisney! Thanks so much for sending us another great question about the Disneyland Resort.

    I'm so excited for you that you will be on vacation at The Happiest Place on Earth during the most wonderful time of the year! Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa is my favorite Disneyland Resort Hotel, and if this is your first time staying there, you're in for such a treat! If you have visited the Walt Disney World Resort, Advanced Dining Reservations can be made for the duration of your stay if you're staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel. At the Disneyland Resort, Advanced Dining Reservations work a little differently and are available 60 days from the date you would like to reserve.

    The Holidays are such a great time of the year to visit, and there are so many fun things happening in the lobby of the hotel. I recommend checking with the front desk for a schedule of events. In addition to the beautiful Christmas tree on display, you can meet Santa, listen to holiday music, and find hidden Mickeys throughout an incredible gingerbread display. You can also find the Grand Californian Great Hall Cart in the lobby which will have an amazing display of yummy holiday cookies, coffee, eggnog, and cookie shots. I highly recommend getting a few Mickey-shaped Gingerbread Cookies!

    If you have more planning questions before you arrive, please visit us again at planDisney. We can't wait for you to be our guest, and we would love to help! 

    Happy Holiday Planning!
