    We are traveling to the Grand Californinian mid October 2022. While we can make a reservation at the hotel, we are not yet able to make reservations at the Disneyland parks (it looks to be only available through August.) What should we do now?

    Hi Sandra!

    Welcome to planDisney! Thank you so much for stopping by and sending this Disneyland Resort vacation planning question to us hEAR. I'm Kristen, your planEAR today!

    This is a great question, Sandra. Park Pass Reservations open for booking 120 days in advance of each Disney day. I actually want to applaud you for being on top of both your Disneyland Resort Hotel booking as well as wanting to get your Park Passes reserved now so you can be Disney done with them both. Sadly you have about two more months to go before it'll be your turn to log in and tell Mickey which theme parks you'll be visiting on which days. However, booking day will be hEAR before you know it.

    While the Park Pass Reservation system is still pretty new, what we've seen is that theme park reservations tend to start to fill up two months out, with availability becoming very scarce 30 days before. But, something else that we've recently lEARned is that Guests of a Disneyland Resort Hotel have almost a separate pool of Park Pass Reservations available just to them, so if you can't log on exactly 120 days before your last Disney day, you have lots of flexibility.

    Something that I like to do to fill the time between booking and taking a Disneyland Resort vacation is to start resEARching my dining options! Remember that dining locations that offer advance dining reservations open those bookings at 6:00 AM PST 60 days in advance of each Disney day. Unlike Park Pass Reservations, the entirety of your vacation days do not need to fall within that 60-day range to start reserving your meals.

    I hope that this helped to clEAR up your question and better plan your upcoming Disney Days, Sandra!
