    Hi I am trying to reserve tickets for September 28th, but it seems like its not available for Disneyland Park, but when I click on California Resident offer it says, Disneyland Park is available. How can I receive the Disneyland Resident offer?

    Hi there, Melinda,

    Oh, I don’t blame you. Fall is one of my favorite times to visit the Disneyland Resort. Especially now that Halloween Time is moving full “scream” ahead.

    Earlier this year, the Disneyland Resort announced specially-priced three-day tickets for California residents. The Summer 2023 California Resident Ticket offer was available only for a limited time. Although these promotional tickets have sold out, Guests who have purchased them previously have until September 28, 2023, to use them. That is why you continue to see that category on the theme park reservation availability calendar.

    Although the 2023 California resident offer is no longer available for purchase, there may still be some ways for you to obtain the theme park reservation you seek. One way is to keep checking for openings. Sometimes, other Guests need to change their plans. When others cancel their park reservations, they may become available for you to book. Availability can come and go often. So it’s worth checking the calendar as frequently as possible.

    Another way is to check different ticket types. One park per day tickets and Park Hopper tickets have different pools of park reservations. And even if you see only Disney California Adventure Park reservations are available for a Park Hopper ticket, that may be used to hop over to Disneyland Park after 11:00 a.m., subject to park availability.

    Finally, you might also consider booking a stay at one of the three Disneyland Resort Hotels. Guests of the on-site hotels may access theme park reservations exclusively for hotel Guests. That set of reservations is still limited. But it often has availability when standard park reservations might not. A nice thing about staying at a Disneyland Resort Hotel is that the benefits are available every day of your stay, including check-in day and check-out day. So even a one-night stay at a Disneyland Resort Hotel can grant you access to those exclusive park reservations for two days if you have a multi-day ticket.

    As you can see, it is certainly a popular season to visit the Disneyland Resort. I understand that it can feel frustrating to see limited availability. If you have some flexibility in the date you wish to visit the Disneyland Resort, that may help. Otherwise, I’m wishing on a star that you find the availability you are hoping for.

    May your dreams come true, Melinda.
