    We have a trip planned for shortly after our pass expires. We can’t make reservations until we renew, but that puts in just over 30 days before our trip. Is there anyway possible to secure our dates before we renew

    Hey there, Osmar. Thanks for stopping by planDisney with this question. I love that you've already decided to renew your Magic Key pass for another year filled with magic. It won't be long until your next visit to the Disneyland Resort and I'm delighted to help.

    Unfortunately, you won't be able to make a theme park reservation for your visit until you've renewed your Magic Key pass or if you purchase a completely separate theme park ticket for your visit. I'm sorry this is not the news you were hoping for. I will, in fact, be in the same situation not too far from now as well.

    The good news is that I've noticed that the parks tend to slow down a bit after Labor Day when most schools are back in session. Hopefully, this will mean that you should still be able to secure your theme park reservations for your next trip without any issues. I can definitely understand and relate to feeling a little anxious about it though.

    Your visit will be just in time for Halloween Time at Disneyland. The giant Mickey pumpkin will be smiling to greet you and Main Street, U.S.A. will be adorned with fall decorations and a plethora of hand-carved pumpkins. After you've passed the giant Mickey, don't forget to turn around and take a look for twice the fun with another face.

    Osmar, I hope this helps as you get ready for your next magical visit to the Happiest Place on Earth. Please come back to ask us any other questions that cross your mind. I'll be sending you all the pixie dust in the hopes that you're able to secure your theme park reservations for your desired dates.
