    Hello I am trying to pan a trip for our family of five 3 adults one 16 year old and one two year old. I'd like to go tomorrow until Friday or soon but there are no reservations. I don't know how to book a trip this new way.

    Hiya, Jaqualynn!

    The Disneyland Resort still offers a magical experience. Though the process for planning has been updated for current times. There are a few new ways to approach your planning.

    The Disneyland Resort currently requires that each Guest of the theme parks have both valid theme park admission and a theme park reservation. The easiest way to meet both requirements at the same time is to use the online theme park ticket portal. Ticket purchases are made in three steps. The first step is to choose the ticket type (one park per day or Park Hopper), the number of days (one through five), and the number of tickets. The second step is to choose the dates and starting parks for theme park reservations to use with your tickets. The final step is to choose any optional add-ons, such as theme park parking and Disney Genie+, which includes the ability to reserve Lightning Lane return times at select attractions and other magical extras.

    Theme park reservations can be booked up to 120 days in advance. Theme park reservation availability is limited. So it is best to reserve as far in advance as possible. Reservation availability does fluctuate. So it’s a good idea to check the calendar frequently if there are particular dates you wish to visit and they don’t currently show availability. You never know when other Guests may need to cancel their reservations, which would make them available to you! If there are specific dates that are especially desirable, such as over a holiday or a special occasion such as an anniversary or a birthday, I strongly encourage you to book a Disneyland Resort Vacation Package at one of the three Disneyland Resort Hotels. On-site hotel guests happen to have access to theme park reservations exclusively for them. By booking Disneyland Resort Hotel, tickets, and more all at once, vacation planning is greatly simplified.

    Tony’s tip: Mouseketeers under three years old are special Guests of Mickey Mouse and do not require theme park admission of their own. If staying at a Disneyland Resort Hotel, be sure to ask about available bedding options for little ones when checking in at the hotel. And in the theme parks, the Baby Care Centers offer special services for infants, toddlers, and other children, including diaper changing facilities, nursing areas, feeding stations, and even pint-sized potties!

    I hope things work out to find the best options for your party to visit the Disneyland Resort, Jaqualynn. If you think of other questions to ask while you’re planning, please to hesitate to visit us again at planDisney.
