    Why are all of the January dates unavailable for Disneyland/California adventure? I don't understand how that can be accurate. I'm planning a January trip but hsve had no luck so far. Thanks

    Hi Jonathan! Welcome back to planDisney. It looks like you are planning a spectacular trip to the Happiest Place on Earth to kick off the New Year! January in the parks is a great time to visit. The weather can even have a bit of a chill, and the parks are settling in after a busy holiday season! 

    Currently, theme park reservations are available through the end of the official holiday season, which is January 8th, 2023. I know many Guests planning January trips are eager to get their Disneyland ducks in a row and are curious when the calendar will open up as we are within the traditional 120-day window. While I do not have an exact date to share at this moment, I can tell you that theme park reservation availability will resume soon! My best advice in this situation is to continue to check the theme park reservation calendar and keep your ears perked and eyes peeled on the Disney Parks Blog and the @DISNEYLAND Instagram account. This is where news tends to break first! The good news is that the calendar is currently closed for everyone, so no one is booking reservations without you!

    Now, why you may ask is there this pause on reservations? We've just learned that Disneyland Resort will be the home to many of the festivities planned to celebrate The Walt Disney Company's 100th anniversary! With the kick-off on January 27th, the Happiest Place on Earth is currently taking a little time to make all the final arrangements. As part of this magical celebration, Mickey and Minnie will don brand new costumes befitting for a centennial, both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park will host new nighttime spectaculars, and perhaps the biggest news of all ... Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway will open on January 27th!

    While I know that your current trip may not overlap with these much-anticipated additions, I can tell you that you may see low crowds during your trip. Typically, Guests will hold off visiting until the new attractions and shows are ushered in, so this could be a pixie-dusted perk! We expect the celebration to last all year, making a good excuse to return to the magic! 

    You could also be on the lookout for Lunar New Year festivities over at Disney California Adventure Park. While dates have not officially been announced, this year's Lunar New Year will begin on January 22nd. This is one of the most highly anticipated festivals as it celebrates wishes of hope and good luck for the year ahead. Feast on culinary delights, enjoy live entertainment, and see some of your favorite characters and how they celebrate this beautiful tradition!

    Jonathan, I hope this was helpful! If you have any more questions, you know where to find us here at planDisney!

    Magic awaits!
