Hop, hop, hurray — A lot is hoppening at Disneyland Resort. Toontown has reopened, and it's better than ever with a new ride — Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway! San Fransokyo Square has opened with Baymax and new foods to try. Pixar Place Hotel is opening this winter, and the holidays are in full swing from Nov. 10 through Jan 7! By the end of October, ticket holders can view the availability calendar and reserve park dates up to 180 days in advance (or 90 days for Magic Key pass holders). A new limited-time kids' special ticket offer goes on sale Oct. 24 for visits Jan. 8 through March 10, 2024, as low as $50 per child (subject to theme park reservation availability). Here's how to make Disneyland theme park reservations and purchase Disneyland tickets!

You'll want to read carefully because the way you reserve tickets purchased through Disneyland differs from tickets purchased through Undercover Tourist. If you purchase directly through Disneyland, you must select dates to reserve before purchasing. If you already have tickets, plan to purchase from Undercover Tourist or have a Magic Key pass, you'll need to use the Disneyland Park reservation system to reserve your dates. Even if you do purchase directly from Disneyland, you will still use this same system to manage your reservations in case you need to modify or cancel them.

To visit Disneyland or Disney California Adventure, you will need valid admission for that park AND a reservation using the Disneyland theme park reservation system. This post will walk you through all of the key details you need to know to get a ticket and reserve your spot at Disneyland Resort!

NOTE: Two new hoppy additions are coming to Genie+! Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway (at Disneyland) and The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel's Undersea Adventure (at California Adventure) will be included with the Genie+ service starting November 2023.

Types of Tickets that Need Disneyland Reservations

Your Guide to Disneyland's Theme Park Reservation System - People post with Mickey

Short and simple answer: All guests ages 3 and up!

Disneyland has set aside a limited number of park reservations for visitors to limit capacity. All guests who have existing tickets or who need to purchase theme park tickets require reservations. Hotel guests with tickets also need to make reservations. These reservations are released on a rolling basis, 180 days in advance as of late October 2023 (in the meantime, up to 120 days in advance). We do see more reservations released in batches, so definitely keep checking if you do not see availability right away. If you do see your date appear, reserve quickly, as popular dates go quickly.

What About Magic Keys?

The Magic Key program replaced the former annual pass program. Magic Key holders must make advance reservations to visit the parks. Magic Key holders use the same reservation system and may make reservations up to 90 days in advance and have a limited number of reservations they can hold at a time, which varies by type of pass. But as soon as a reservation is used, modified or canceled, a new reservation may be booked. The availability calendar for Magic Key holders differs from other ticket holders. You might see a day without reservations available for Magic Key holders while there is plenty of availability for other ticket holders and vice-versa. We will discuss Magic Keys in detail below.

Which Type of Ticket Does Not Need a Reservation?

If you purchase a dated ticket for an after-hours event, such as a Disneyland After Dark party or the Oogie Boogie Bash, you do not need to make a theme park reservation for that event.

How Do I Buy Tickets and Make a Reservation?

Your Guide to Disneyland's Theme Park Reservation System - Woman at park turnstile

Whether you already have a valid Disneyland ticket you've been hopping to use or need to purchase a new ticket, you will use the theme park reservations page.

And don't froget: You can get discounted Disneyland tickets from your favorite froggies! After you purchase, you will link your tickets and visit the theme park reservations page. Plus, we've got deals on tickets with Genie+ so you can save on this benefit in advance! We now sell refundable 1-day tickets, too. Ribbit!

Important Links

It's so easy for the information you need to find to get lost in all the details. Here are all of the important links you may find hopful: 

  • Disneyland Park Availability Calendar — This calendar allows you to make sure the park you want to visit is available the day you want to visit (before you buy or start to reserve). Some days have only one park available, and others have no more availability for either park. Check the Park Hopper calendar versus the 1-Day ticket calendar, as they are different. You can even check the availability for hotel guests!
  • Disneyland 1-Day Ticket Tier Calendar — If you have or wish to purchase a 1-Day ticket, you can see which days require a certain tier-level ticket. Popular days such as weekends and holidays are higher tiers and cost more than, say, Tuesdays and Wednesdays at a non-peak time. Note that this calendar does not show if the days are full. You must also visit the Disneyland Park Availability Calendar to see which days are currently available to reserve.
  • Magic Key Holder Availability Calendar — If you have a Magic Key pass, you can check availability and blackout dates here.
  • Disneyland Theme Park Reservations — This is where you can get started, whether you need to buy tickets and/or reserve your days. A step-by-step guide is below.
  • StartYourDisneylandExperience.com — After you've purchased tickets, this link also takes you through the step-by-step process.

When to Book

You'll need to plan your visit in advance, but you are limited to 120 days (soon 180 days) in advance at this time. The reservations are released on a rolling basis, and new reservations out go live at 8 a.m. Pacific Time each day. The earlier you book, the better park availability there is. In our experience, dining reservations go live before then on the same day, so book your dining 60 days out early in the morning before you even make your park reservations (usually about or shortly after 6 a.m.). You can always cancel dining up to two hours in advance if your park reservations change or you do not start your day in the park you had originally planned to visit.

Purchasing Tickets Through the Disneyland Site

Your Guide to Disneyland's Theme Park Reservation System - Sept-Oct ticket prices

If you want to purchase a 1-Day ticket, you can purchase it through the Disneyland site (or now from Undercover Tourist as well). The 1-day tickets vary in price by date. Multi-day tickets are a set price for several days (or dates)

Don't worry; buying and reserving just got easier. You can now purchase and reserve tickets at the same time! When purchasing through the Disneyland site, you'll follow these steps:

  1. Visit Park Reservations and select the ticket you want.
  2. Select the number of days you wish to visit the parks (in this case, one).
  3. Choose the number of tickets you need for all of the guests in your party, per age group.
  4. Select your ticket type — one park per day, or Park Hopper tickets.
  5. Pick a date (or dates) and Continue.
  6. Select your park. Pick a park for each day of your theme park reservation, subject to availability. With a Park Hopper, select your starting park for each day of your visit and Continue.
  7. For added convenience, you may now select the add-on option of purchasing parking vouchers in advance as well as Genie+ service.
  8. Review your current selections, and hit Continue to check out.
  9. Add the name of the guest to each ticket. Do this properly so you'll know how to distinguish each person's ticket. It's mostly for your reference. Let's say Dad has to cancel coming to Disneyland and Grandma wants to use his ticket. As long as it's unused, she can use it. Once she enters the gate and gets her photo taken, that ticket is hers no matter what the name says on it.
  10. Finish checking out and verify that you provide the correct email address and payment information.

Because you're purchasing directly through the Disneyland site, your ticket will automatically be linked to your account. You do not have to make a separate reservation.

Before you purchase through Disneyland, you'll want to hop down to compare costs for purchasing from Undercover Tourist. You can save a lot of money by purchasing authorized tickets through Undercover Tourist. They are the same tickets as Disneyland tickets but cost less!

There are a few things to keep in mind when purchasing directly from Disneyland. You can no longer purchase tickets to Disneyland without first choosing your reservation dates. You must reserve all the dates for multi-day tickets before you purchase. But if you need to change them, you can modify the reservations or cancel them. Keep in mind that the 1-Day tickets are subject to tiers so if you change your dates, you can only visit the same level tier or below. If you are buying for multiple people, you need to book the same dates for your entire party. If you have different dates that some party members wish to visit, purchase those tickets separately.

If you want to save money on multi-day tickets, read on for how to purchase and reserve.

How to Make a Disneyland Reservations for Existing Tickets or Tickets Purchased from Undercover Tourist

Your Guide to Disneyland's Theme Park Reservation System - Disneyland ticket

To limit capacity at Disneyland, every park-goer must make an advance reservation. To enter a theme park, guests 3 and up must have both a theme park reservation and valid admission to that same park.

It's a good idea to check the park reservation availability before you purchase to make sure the park you want to visit has availability for your day. (If park hopping, you will want to make sure the park where you want to start your day is available.) Once you have your theme park ticket, you will want to make your Disneyland reservation ASAP!

How to Make a Disneyland Park Reservation 

First off, you need to buy a ticket or link an existing ticket. (For 1-Day tickets and prices, hop down to Ticket Pricing and How to Check Ticket Calendars for 1-Day Tickets.) If you're purchasing through Undercover Tourist, our E-tickets are typically processed within a few minutes and emailed to you (though this may take up to 24 hours). We suggest purchasing a few days in advance. You'll receive a confirmation email that includes your E-ticket so that you can hop on those reservations!

Here is how to make your Disneyland theme park reservation:

  1. Register or sign in to the Disneyland app or head to StartYourDisneylandExperience.com and link your admission. To link your ticket from Undercover Tourist, you'll simply enter your ticket's 19-digit confirmation number. This can be found in your confirmation email, or just beneath the barcode on your ticket (or, using the barcode on the ticket, you can scan it directly into the app). You may need to enter the name of each ticket holder (it's important to do this correctly as you cannot change this).
  2. Access the theme park reservation system. Click to make a park reservation by selecting Make or Modify Park Reservations. You'll then see two choices: Book Theme Park Reservation and Retrieve Hotel Reservation. If you are staying on-site or through a Good Neighbor package, you can link your hotel reservation or confirmation number. That unlocks better reservation availability.
  3. Create your party. Select Book Theme Park Reservation and then you can create your party. Select the ticket you want to make a new theme park reservation for and click Continue. You may only make park reservations for up to 15 tickets at a time. (If you do not see your tickets, click +Link a ticket or Magic Key Pass to link your park admission.)
  4. Select a date and theme park. Choose the date and the theme park that you'd like to visit. You'll see a calendar that shows availability (availability changes all the time). If there is not any park availability left on a selected date, you'll see a slash through it on the calendar. If you have a multi-day ticket, after you confirm one day, you'll return to the previous screen and select Book Theme Park Reservation to repeat the process and make reservations for each day of your ticket. If you have a Park Hopper ticket, choose the theme park where you want to start your day. The Park Hopper availability can vary from the 1-Day availability. Once all of your ticket's days have been reserved, the button to book a reservation will no longer appear, leaving just the option to view existing reservations. To make changes, you can modify or cancel.
  5. Review and confirm your visit. Scroll down Terms and Conditions and check the box and  Confirm Changes. Provide an email address (this may be auto-populated, so be sure to double-check it) to receive confirmation of your reservation and the QR code. You'll be able to see or manage your park reservations in the Future Plans part of the Disneyland app at any time. (Cast members do not usually ask for the reservation QR code — you just need your ticket — when you enter. But it's good to have proof just in case something goes wrong or the system goes down. We once had to prove we had a reservation when the park's system went down.)

Your Guide to Disneyland's Theme Park Reservation System - modify reservation

The hoppy news is that instead of needing to completely cancel and rebook a park reservation if you have to change the date or park for your visit, you can now simply modify the reservation to your new date or park without having to cancel the reservation first. 

Guests can make reservation changes on Disneyland.com (those using the app will be redirected to the website). This ability is still subject to reservation availability and blackout dates.

Tips for Navigating the Site

Your Guide to Disneyland's Theme Park Reservation System - Goofy and Clarabelle Though it may seem complicated, overall, the process is simple: Book your tickets. Link the tickets to your Disneyland account. Then make the Disneyland theme park reservations.

You may have a lot of questions. There is a bit of flexibility in the system if you have several people with tickets. In our case, we have days we want to visit together and days where some people will visit separately. We were able to make each person's reservations and customize the visits for our extended froggy family.

On the Disneyland home bar, you will see My Disneyland. On the pull-down menu, click Ticket and Reservation Details to start reserving. Click Make or Modify Park Reservations.

You should see your tickets or upcoming reservations listed. For people who will be visiting together, click all the tickets that apply. To customize, click just the ticket you want to reserve. If you have a 1-Day tiered ticket, your calendar will look different from the park hopper calendar.

When park hopping with a multi-day ticket, you will select your date and park for your first day, and then you may select other dates and the park you'd like to start at for your additional days. You will be shown all eligible dates. The first date you pick does not need to be the first date you visit. You'll be shown available dates that are 13 days before and after the date you selected.

Theme park reservation dates can be changed (provided your ticket isn't date-based). You can now modify your current reservation and rebook for your new date — so check availability before you make that move! You can do this directly through the Disneyland app or site at any time.

Always go back and view your reservations. Confirm that everyone in your party is starting at the same park on the same day. So many people accidentally have a different park reservation than the rest of the party.

Reservation Limitations:

  • Guests may make reservations up to 180 days in advance as of late October 2023.
  • Magic Key Holders may make reservations up to 90 days in advance.

How to Make a Magic Key Reservation

To use a Magic Key pass:

  1. Access the calendar. Make sure your pass is valid the day you want to visit up to 90 days in advance and that the park has availability.
  2. Go to the reservations page and log in to your Disneyland account and make or modify a reservation the same way other ticket holders reserve their days. You can make reservations for one park, choosing the park you want to visit first if both parks are available. All Magic Keys are park hoppers. You can hop back and forth after 11 a.m. Park hopping guests can enter either park no matter the reservation if arriving after hopping is allowed.
  3. Review and confirm your visit by checking the Terms and Conditions box. (Do not froget to scroll down and complete this step.)

Don't froget! You can now simply modify your park reservation to your new date or park without having to cancel the reservation first. 

Magic Key holders use the same reservation system as everyone else but may have a more limited selection of days when booking. Weekend days and holidays fill up quickly for Magic Key holders, so reserve early. It can be challenging to find same-day reservations, even during the week. Park availability changes frequently. If you don't see what you want, just keep checking, especially the night before and the middle of the night.

If you hoppen to have both Magic Keys or regular tickets in your account, you will see all of your reservations and tickets/passes in the same place. If you have linked friends or family members to your Disneyland account or app, you'll also see their reservations. We have found that hopful in coordinating plans and starting theme parks.

Penalties for No-Shows

Unlike people with 1-day and multi-day ticket reservations, Magic Key holders face penalties for no-shows. Key holders can cancel or modify a reservation without penalty up until 11:59 p.m. the night before the reservation. However, if they do not show up three times in 90 days, the ability to make new reservations will be suspended for 30 days. Existing reservations are not deleted at that time. In comparison, if regular ticket holders do not show up, they can simply make a new reservation. To avoid a Magic Key no-show, a Key holder should cancel or modify by the night before or enter the park before closing on the day of the reservation.

Managing Reservations Through the Disneyland App

Your Guide to Disneyland's Theme Park Reservation System - app screen shot

You can initiate managing your theme park reservations through the Disneyland app. You will tap the three horizontal lines at the bottom of the home screen, then Future Plans. Tap any of the plans to be sent to the site to modify or check plans. You'll need to sign into your Disney account and follow the same steps you would follow for the site. Don't froget to scroll down to tap the Terms and Conditions box.

Ticket Pricing and How to Check Ticket Calendars for 1-Day Tickets

Disneyland has a tiered pricing schedule for 1-Day tickets. Each day has a different price based on expected crowds. Before you purchase, you'll have to check the Ticket Calendars to see which dates are valid. If you already have an unused tiered ticket, you can look at which days are valid for your tier at disneyland.disney.go.com/park-availability. The "Good to Go!" tells you which days that tier ticket can visit, but it does not indicate that the day is still available. You'll have to hop over to the Disneyland Park Availability Calendar to see which days have filled up or still have room for reservations.

We know you want to save as much money as you can, so looking at the park availability calendar can help you pick the cheapest ticket for your day. If you already have a ticket, you can see which days the ticket is valid for making a park reservation.

The best savings come with multi-day tickets. Multi-day tickets are not subject to the tiered pricing or date restrictions (whew, one less thing to worry about!) — and we have hoppin' good news! Undercover Tourist is offering discount multi-day Disneyland tickets, available now! Our official Disneyland tickets can be linked to your account and used to make park reservations.

One more hop tip to save money: The price to add park hopping is the same for all multi-day tickets. The Park Hopper is $60 for Multi-Day tickets, so a Multi-Day Park Hopper is an especially good value (compared to the $65 park hopper cost for a 1-day ticket).

For now, Disneyland has released pricing schedules. More details will be released on a rolling basis. Hop over to view the ticket dates each tier is good for.

Let's take a look at Disneyland ticket tiers and prices for 1-Day Tickets with admission to 1 park per day (not refundable):

  • Adult 1-Day Tier 6 Ticket with Admission to 1 Park Per Day — $179 ($169 child)
  • Adult 1-Day Tier 5 Ticket With Admission to 1 Park Per Day — $169 ($159 child)
  • Adult 1-Day Tier 4 Ticket With Admission to 1 Park Per Day — $159 ($150 child)
  • Adult 1-Day Tier 3 Ticket With Admission to 1 Park Per Day — $144 ($136 child)
  • Adult 1-Day Tier 2 Ticket With Admission to 1 Park Per Day — $129 ($122 child)
  • Adult 1-Day Tier 1 Ticket With Admission to 1 Park Per Day — $114 ($108 child)
  • Adult 1-Day Tier 0 Ticket With Admission to 1 Park Per Day — $104 ($98 child)

Undercover Tourist now sells 1-Day Tickets! They do cost a few dollars more, however, if your plans are tentative, but you want to secure your dates. Undercover Tourist Disneyland tickets are refundable for up to 365 days, whereas tickets purchased directly from Disneyland are not. Disneyland 1-Day tickets expire Dec. 30, 2024.

Here are Undercover Tourist 1-Day Refundable Ticket Prices:

  • Adult 1-Day Tier 6 Ticket with Admission to 1 Park Per Day — $184.37 ($174.07 child)
  • Adult 1-Day Tier 5 Ticket With Admission to 1 Park Per Day — $174.04 ($163.77 child)
  • Adult 1-Day Tier 4 Ticket With Admission to 1 Park Per Day — $163.77 ($154.50 child)
  • Adult 1-Day Tier 3 Ticket With Admission to 1 Park Per Day — $148.32 ($140.08 child)
  • Adult 1-Day Tier 2 Ticket With Admission to 1 Park Per Day — $132.87 ($125.66 child)
  • Adult 1-Day Tier 1 Ticket With Admission to 1 Park Per Day — $117.42 ($111.24 child)
  • Adult 1-Day Tier 0 Ticket With Admission to 1 Park Per Day — $107.12 ($100.94 child)

Park Hopper Disneyland 1-Day Tickets:

  • Adult 1-Day Tier 6 Park Hopper Ticket — $244 ($234 child)
  • Adult 1-Day Tier 5 Park Hopper Ticket — $234 ($224 child)
  • Adult 1-Day Tier 4 Park Hopper Ticket — $224 ($215 child)
  • Adult 1-Day Tier 3 Park Hopper Ticket — $209 ($201 child)
  • Adult 1-Day Tier 2 Park Hopper Ticket — $194 ($187 child)
  • Adult 1-Day Tier 1 Park Hopper Ticket — $179 ($173 child)
  • Adult 1-Day Tier 0 Park Hopper Ticket — $169 ($163 child)

Park Hopper Undercover Tourist 1-Day Park Hopper Refundable Tickets:

  • Adult 1-Day Tier 6 Park Hopper Ticket — $251.32 ($241.02 child)
  • Adult 1-Day Tier 5 Park Hopper Ticket — $241.02 ($230.72 child)
  • Adult 1-Day Tier 4 Park Hopper Ticket — $230.72 ($221.45 child)
  • Adult 1-Day Tier 3 Park Hopper Ticket — $215.27 ($207.03 child)
  • Adult 1-Day Tier 2 Park Hopper Ticket — $199.82 ($192.61 child)
  • Adult 1-Day Tier 1 Park Hopper Ticket — $184.37 ($178.19 child)
  • Adult 1-Day Tier 0 Park Hopper Ticket — $174.07 ($167.89 child)

Keep in mind that a ticket can be used for its tier as well as a lower tier. But a lower-tier ticket cannot be booked for a higher-tier date if you change your mind. You can only upgrade at the ticket window. That's one reason why we love multi-day tickets. You do not have to worry about tiers or blackout dates. Another reason to love multi-day tickets is that it's cheaper to add park hopping to a multi-day ticket than to a 1-day ticket!

If you are unable to use your tickets before they expire, keep in mind that Disneyland tickets never lose their value. You can apply them toward a future purchase. We have hoppin' good news! Unused Undercover Tourist Disneyland tickets now have a 365-day refund policy when booking through Undercover Tourist. Look at the refund policy on the ticket you wish to buy for the details.

If you need a rental car on your trip, if you add it to your cart when purchasing Undercover Tourist theme park tickets, you can unlock deeper savings of up to 50 percent off!

Multi-Day Disneyland Ticket Prices

Your Guide to Disneyland's Theme Park Reservation System - churro

Hoppy news — multi-day tickets are available too! As we mentioned, these tickets are not subject to tiered pricing or blackout dates like 1-Day tickets. Multi-day tickets expire 13 days after their first use, or Jan. 12, 2025, whichever comes first. You have your first use, plus 13 days. Advance theme park reservations are required for each day of your visit, in addition to valid admission. If you'll be park hopping, you'll only need to make a theme park reservation for the first park you wish to visit.

Follow our advice on how to save money on Disneyland tickets with Undercover Tourist. We have a saying about the savings: That's a lot of churro money! (We tend to use our savings for snacks and park experiences.)

Multi-Day Park Hopper Tickets from Undercover Tourist

Want to know how to get a 5th day free? An Undercover Tourist 5-day ticket costs less than a Disneyland 4-day ticket! Did you notice that our Genie+ tickets have additional savings? This is the best way to lock in the lowest Genie+ rate you can get. If you wait to purchase in the park, the price can go up. It varies each day.

Multi-Day Base Tickets from Undercover Tourist

Keep an eye out for even cheaper sales and promo tickets that appear from time to time! We have great SoCal Resident Promo 3-Day ticket promos available during select times of the year. This summer, we had discounts on the 3-Day California Resident ticket too! With this ticket, you can visit on three separate days, but with a longer usage window than a standard ticket. There are park hopper and Genie+ options as well. In fact, this is the cheapest you will find Genie+!  Follow us on social media for more sales and deal announcements. Look for our Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals! Sometimes, especially near holidays, you can take advantage of additional sales on multi-day tickets!

What to Know Before You Make Your Disneyland Reservation

Your Guide to Disneyland's Theme Park Reservation System - June 2023

Before you make your Disneyland reservation, there are a few important things to remember:

  • You must have valid theme park admission to make a reservation.
  • You'll make a reservation for a specific park.
  • Disneyland on-site hotel guests have a different pool of reservations, so if you really want to visit but your days are full, check the Disney hotel guests' availability and book a room.
  • You will want to link all the tickets to at least one account to make joining a virtual queue for World of Color easier.
  • Reservations are limited and subject to availability.
  • You must make a park reservation for each day of entry. If you have a multi-day ticket, you must make a park reservation for each day of your visit.
  • Guests aged 2 and under do not need a ticket or reservation.
  • You can view a Disney Park Reservation Availability calendar at disneyland.disney.go.com/availability-calendar.
  • You can modify or cancel your reservation if you need to make a change.

Theme Park Reservations for Disneyland Resort Hotel Guests

Your Guide to Disneyland's Theme Park Reservation System - Disneyland Hotel Room

As we mentioned, one of the perks of staying at an on-site hotel is that hotel guests have a different pool of theme park availability. That goes for any ticket holder or Magic Key holder with a hotel reservation. Hotel guests can tap My Hotel Reservation in the Disneyland app to access the hotel guest theme park reservations. Be sure to link your hotel reservation to your account to access this. It's such a nice perk (along with theme park Early Entry)!

Making Dining and Other Experience Reservations

Your Guide to Disneyland's Theme Park Reservation System - Women eat at Cafe Orleans

Once you make your Disneyland Park Reservations, you may want to book dining or the lightsaber-building experience at Savi's Workshop right away. Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique reservations fill up quickly. You may book up to 60 days in advance. You can even book dining or other experiences before you book your park reservation. Just remember to modify or cancel it if you are not able to make a park reservation that day. We recommend booking in-park dining and other experiences at the park where you have a theme park reservation or after hopping time if you have a Park Hopper Ticket.

Since Disneyland requires you to have both a theme park reservation and a valid admission ticket for the same park on the same date, having reservations for dining experiences and other pre-booked experiences does not guarantee access to a park.

If you are new to Disneyland, hop over to our post on using the Disneyland app. It's full of tips and tricks to make your day easier.

Hop to it! It's time to make those Disneyland reservations. What questions do you have about Disneyland's new reservation system? Let us know in the comments below! And remember, you can save some green by purchasing your Disneyland tickets and your hotel stay through Undercover Tourist. Ribbit!

Hoppy planning!

Keep hopping, Mommy Frog!

Hello,

I am a regular Disney adult and previously used the Salute to the Military tickets. Now we are looking for the best way to get tickets based on scheduling needs. We plan to visit for Christmas and are also participating in the Disneyland half marathon. We wanted to purchase a multi day ticket but with the research these expire 13 days after the first visit. That time doesn’t work. We’d be over the deadline by a week. Do you know if there are other ticket options with longer timeframes or is there a way to extend this 13 day expiration on the tickets?

Thank you in advance

Hi Rachel!

All multi-day Disneyland tickets currently purchased through Disney directly or through Undercover Tourist expire 13 days of first use or by January 12, 2025, whichever occurs first. Unfortunately, the expiration period cannot be extended after first use.

Hoppy planning!

Hi, We will be purchasing and registering a 1 day ticket for Disneyland for 3 of us for the date of Monday Aug. 7th.

We fly in on saturday night and if our flight gets in without delays at a decent hour, we may want to try to do Disneyland on the Sunday instead because we’ve heard Sundays would be less busy. My question is, as long as there is availability, till what time on the saturday, am I able to modify a park reservation to get one for the next day (sunday) instead ? Also, if it shows availability, is it something you can try to change at the park itself.

Thanks.

Hi Nellie!

As long as there’s availability, you can make modifications, even on the same-day. But once you scan into the park, you’ve committed to that park for the day (unless you have Park Hopper tickets). Also note that since you have a 1-Day ticket for Aug. 7, you’ll need to make sure that the days are within the same tier in order to make changes. If the tickets are not within the same tier, you may need to pay the difference in order to change the ticket date.

Hoppy planning!

Hello. I am hoping you can help. First time Disneyland visitor and just made a Good Neighbor Hotel package reservation. My trip is in December but I am told I won't have access to the tickets until 4 days before arrival. How do I book theme park reservations without access to those tickets? I keep reading the park reservations open 120 out but how does that help? Also, for the 120 days out, when does it roll over to the next day, midnight? or what time? Thank you in advance for your assistance, it is greatly appreciated.

Hi Scott!

Once you book a Good Neighbor Hotel package, you'll receive a hotel confirmation number. You can then link the hotel reservation to your My Disneyland account, which will give you access to the theme park reservation system. You can proceed to make reservations 120 days in advance. At the 120-day mark, there's always plenty of availability (nothing fills up that quickly), so no need to worry about the exact rollover time. Though if you're traveling during Christmas week, we'd say it's best to lock in those reservations as early as you can so you don't froget. For peace of mind, you can set a reminder for the day that your booking window opens, and if plans change, you can modify the reservations as much as you'd like until there's no availability left.

We are party if 2 on a road trip and wanted to visit Disney Land spontaneously next week June, 6th/7th or 8th for 1day. We have no tickets yet. Reservation are not available for these days anymore. Any chance or idea if we still can visit the park? Thanks for your lightning fast answer... :-)

Hi Oli!

If the availability calendar shows there aren't any reservations available, you wouldn't be able to enter the park, even with tickets. However, we'd still say to keep an eye out, just in case availability changes as it's fluid (people may cancel reservations, as it's required by 11:59 p.m. the day before).

Hi! Thank you so so much for sharing all this info. I bought magic passes for the whole family as a Christmas gift. This is our first time having passed and want to use them to the fullest. We have the Believe pass and want to go week of March 26-30. They are crossed off but I remember specifically checking those dates when debating on which magic pass to

Purchase and they were not blocked out. Any idea why? Could it already be full this fast.. in December?! ;(

Hi Sharon!

Magic Key holders can only make reservations 90 days in advance, so the booking window just hasn't opened up yet! Believe Key passes are not blocked out during that week except for the surrounding Saturdays (March 25 and April 1) and the following week (April 2-9). Check back next week and you should be able to start making your reservations then.

Hello!

I am planning a trip Jan 11-12, 2023. I understand that it’s 120 days in advance for reservations. I have checked for two weeks on Disneylands website and it will not move the dates past January 8 2023. I have already booked flights and hotel and bought tickets using your site. Is there a reason why it’s not moving the booking dates??

Thanks!

Hi JoJo!

Don't worry! Jan. 8 is the last day of Holiday Time, so it looks like Disneyland hasn't opened up ticket sales or reservations for the dates that follow just yet. It's not a peak time, so competition will not be fierce for those midweek dates following the end of a holiday — just keep hopping back and checking!

I'd like to purchase our 5-day, single park tickets for December 9-14. However, the park calendars are not available yet for December. I'd hate to be in CA Adventure one day, and miss a special parade in Disneyland that's only on that same day. How do I make this decision without knowing which park will have which shows/parades on certain days??? It sounds complicated and iffy to purchase, cancel, and then re-reserve for a party of 6.

Thanks for the great info about Disneyland. I have a question about reservations. I will be a international guest. I am trying to understand if I buy a 5 day pass and I’m ready to book say October 1st for my first day but on the calendar that is the last day. Do I need wait everyday to book in the next day like October 2nd comes up to represent my 2nd day and so on. And when I want my 3rd day on October 4th do I again wait till that day comes up on the calendar. It really seems stressful as a international guest. I would have my plane done, hotel done but 4 months out having no guarantee to get in. Dohhhhhh

Hi Justin!

You can book each day up to 120 days in advance. You can either book as you said, each day as it becomes available, or wait and book all five days out at one time once you are 120 days away from your fifth day. As you can see by the availability calendar, things do not book up that far in advance, so we would try not to stress too much about it :) You are booking ahead of most people and you should have no problem securing your dates! Keep us posted!

Our son is in the military and is returning home for a two week leave from overseas. He purchased his Disneyland tickets through the military and the minimum option is a three day park hopper pass. Problem is that only two days that are back to back show availability for reservations so he can't book his third day. Does he have any options or does he just lose that third day? It's not like he can come back at a later date. Thanks

Hi William!

It sounds like he has already hopped on getting the reservations for the two days — great! As for the third day, we'd encourage him to keep looking & refreshing since people can change plans and cancel their reservations. It may take several tries, but we have been able to snag hard-to-get reservations that way.

I am booking flights and hotels online for November and have the option to also add Disney tickets to my vacation package. However the Disney ticket calendar is not open for November yet. Should I buy the tickets with my vacation package, or wait and buy them on the Disney site when the calendar opens for Nov?

Should I be stressed about booking flights and hotels before confirming the tickets? We are booking our vacation specifically to go to Disney.... but if I wait until 120 days out to book flights, the prices will be crazy!

This new system seems stressful...

Hi Rachael!

We recommend that you buy the tickets in advance, link them to your Disneyland account, and then once reservations open up 120 days in advance, you reserve your theme park days. Just set a reminder when it's time to reserve - reservations get tricky during short timeframes, but with advance notice, you should not have any issues reserving if you hop on them as soon as you can. Have a great trip!

If reservations are available, you can make a reservation up to the same day of your visit, but that's not always the case and we couldn't guarantee availability. It's better to reserve in advance and cancel/reschedule than to take a chance and be out of luck.

Hi Tracy!

We don't know exact numbers in regards to capacity limits or the amount of reservation numbers allowed per day. Although we can say that there were times before the holiday season that we went to the parks on days when reservations were sold out, but still didn't experience jam-packed crowds or super long lines (as the capacity limit seems to be different by day). Since you're visiting a weekday after the holiday festivities end, we would expect crowds to be manageable.

But ... if we have to cancel the trip due to Canadian (Cv-19) travel restrictions, I'm wondering how long the purchased but unused tickets will be valid for.

Hi there!

If you've scanned in for the day, you could leave and come back. However, we'd recommend that you stick around if you're able to, as there still wouldn't be a 100% guarantee you'd be able to get back in. So far, with the reservation system in place, we haven't run into any capacity issues, but New Year's Eve could be a night that more park hoppers would want to be in Disneyland, and if Disneyland reaches capacity, they could pause letting more people come in. In the past, there have been certain "tiers" - a person who has left and is returning may have higher priority than someone entering for the first that day. This year is a bit harder to predict since there are many different factors at play.

Hi Joe!

You can print out your ticket or scan directly from the app. Due to varying print quality, we'd recommend linking your tickets to the app, just in case the scanners cannot read the paper. An unused ticket can be used by anyone, but once the ticket is used to enter the park, the user's photo is taken and that ticket is officially assigned to them.

Hi Terriesa!

You can double-check your theme park reservations online or through the Disneyland app! Navigate to the Park Reservations webpage, and there's a button that says "View My Reservations" (you'll likely need to log into your account). Or if you're searching in the app, then navigate to the side menu (on the very bottom of the app, click on the icon with three lines which is on the right side of the screen). You should be able to view your reservations in "My Plans."

Hi there!

If you need to change dates, you can cancel the reservation and it will let you make a new reservation for your new dates.

If you wish to go on a date that can only be used by a different tier, then you could upgrade and pay the extra difference.)

Hi there!

The best way to ensure that they would be able to get a reservation for the next day is to purchase another 1-day ticket online (before reservations fill up), as it's rare to find same-day or next-day availability for park reservations and Ticket Services would not have the ability to make reservations if you tried upgrading once you're at the park. (If you hoppen to live locally, you could look at the availability calendar, go to the ticket booth in advance and upgrade then before all of the reservations are gone.)

Hi Mariana!

It toadally depends on which Magic Key pass you get. The Dream Key doesn't have any blockout dates so you could hold up to six reservations at a time any day of the year. The Believe Key, Enchant Key and Imagine Key passes have certain blockout dates (and a different amount of reservations you can hold at a time), which you can view on the Magic Key Access Calendar. None of the passes restrict the time of day that you can go.

Hi Brenda!

Correct - if you're purchasing directly through Disney, you have to reserve when you purchase and all of the dates have to be available in order to do so. If all of your dates are not available within the 120-day window, you'd have to wait. Through us, you make reservations after you purchase, so you can make them one at a time, if you like. You could reserve the available dates and log in each day once the following dates become available. Regardless of where you buy the tickets, you can always cancel a reservation and make a new one for a different date.

I just bought disneyland park tickets though Disneyland app. So does this mean I don't need to make a park reservation too?

I'm very confused, because after i purchased my thickets and tried to make a reservation, it said "Unable to make a theme park reservation." "this ticket has reached its theme park reservation limit."

But below, I have "Upcoming theme park reservation" and it shows all of my tickets.

Does this mean I already have my reservation too?

I'm super confused and worry if i can go to DL or not...

I sent an email to Disneyland but they don't send me back yet, so please help me.

Hi Nao!

Since you bought your tickets directly from the Disneyland app, your tickets are automatically linked to your account. You do not have to make a separate theme park reservation, as you selected the dates when you purchased them.

Hoppy planning!

Hi Emily!

At this time, ticket upgrades can only be made in person at the ticketing booth.

If i were to cancel my reservation and try and make it for a new day would i get a refund?

Hi Bobert!

The short answer is no (you would not get a refund). But your ticket still has value, so you can go ahead and make a new reservation for a different day. The multi-day tickets and Tier 5 tickets are good any day without blackout dates. If you have a 1-day ticket (Tier 4 or lower), then you will need to check the blackout dates and the availability calendar before reserving a new date that falls within the tier's valid dates. If you wish to reserve a date that falls in a higher tier, you must upgrade at the ticket window.

Hoppy planning!

I bought our tickets through Disney and so our reservations are linked. Are the reservations linked on the printed tickets or do I need to print the QR codes and tickets separately?

Hi Elaina!

You do not need to bring the QR codes — just the tickets! You can view the reservations under park reservations in the app or by logging into the Disneyland website, but the reservations will not actually appear on the paper tickets. They are just electronically linked.

Hi! My god daughter is visiting for my birthday and we booked 1 day single park tickets on a weekday in July. We booked before we found out my husband could take the day off, and now there are no Disney park tickets available. I know that if someone cancels the website will update with new reservations, and I've kept my eye on it with no luck. Is there a specific time of day those reservations are refreshed? Do you have any suggestions?

Hi Sarah!

There isn't, unfortunately, a specific timeframe where things are refreshed - the best advice we have is to keep trying!

I have park tickets and a reservation. One of my party will not be able to attend. Does that affect the rest of the members of my party if one of us is missing?

Hi Tracy!

It is possible to cancel the reservation for the person who cannot attend. Once you click cancel, it'll allow you to select certain people from the party, so they can be removed and it won't affect the others who still plan to go.

We bought Disneyland tickets online for tomorrow. Unfortunately one person in our party of 5 cannot attend. Can we transfer his ticket to another person? If not, can we get a "credit" for his ticket to use at another time (not sure of date at this time)? If so, how would we do this? Thank you!

Hi Jessica!

Disneyland tickets are nontransferable, unfortunately. Since you'll be at Disneyland, we'd recommend stopping by a ticketing booth - cast members will be able to provide you with options there directly! :)

Does Disney let you buy tickets without closing off the park reservation? So you can get scammed into buying a ticket first and then not be able to go....

Hi AH!

If you're purchasing directly through the Disneyland site, your ticket will automatically be linked to your account. You do not have to make a separate theme park reservation, as you'll select your dates when you purchase. If you purchase through Undercover Tourist, you'll still need to make a separate theme park reservation, so we recommend consulting the Disneyland Availability Calendar prior to purchasing your tickets to be sure your desired dates are available. At this time, all multi-day tickets expire in Jan. 2023, so you have a while to use them. Hope this helps!

Hoppy planning!

Hi, my family & I purchased park hopper tickets for a certain date. However, 3 of the tickets we purchased would like to be post poned to a different date. But the rest of the group would still like to go on the original date. Is that possible or would the entire group need to postpone theirs as well?

Hi Vik!

Yes, you can cancel your reservations for only the people who need to postpone. After you click cancel, it will allow you to select who needs to postpone, while the others can keep the original trip. Once you have the dates for those who need to reschedule, you can make new reservations up to 120 days in advance.

This is a very helpful response and covers most of what I was going to ask. Is there a like, “must postpone within 24 hours” kind of policy? 2 of 5 members of my group may not be able to make it to Disneyland this Sunday, but we’d like to make it work. Please let me know if there is timeframe we need to reschedule by.

My friends and I have one day ticket reservations for Disneyland. Is it possible to change to a different date. Looking at the Disneyland site, reservations can be cancelled so I’m hoping that means we can book our ticket for another date. Can’t get through to a live person when I call Disneyland, so any info would be greatly appreciated.

Hi there!

It depends on your ticket, as some tickets are valid for a variety of dates. As long as your ticket type is valid for the day you want to switch to, you can easily change the reservation date as long as there's availability. However, other tickets may only be available on the date you purchased it for. In that case, you would need to visit the Ticket Window and exchange or upgrade your ticket (subject to availability).

Hello! I recently purchased a 1-day ticket for one park and now want to change my 1-day ticket to a park hopper. Is that possible to do online and change? Thanks!

Hi Hannah!

Currently, the only way to upgrade to a Park Hopper is to visit the ticket booth once you arrive, and it's subject to availability.

I'm going to the parks on June 25th and 26th, since Disneyland is now open to everyone. Are they opening the reservations system to 100% capacity?

I am concerned because I have purchased two 1 Day Tier 3 Park Hopper Tickets. This is clearly stated on our virtual ticket. Reservations are booked and confirmed for starter park California Adventure July 14, 2021 (which is what we want). But reservation states “California Adventure All Day”. The ALL DAY phrase is what concerns me. Don’t we have a park hopper? I thought after 1pm we could start hopping? Why does it say All Day???

Hi Tracy,

If you've purchased Park Hopper tickets, you will be able to park hop! "All Day" is referring to your arrival time — you can enter your first park at anytime during the day and do not need to arrive by a certain time, though hopping to your second park must be at 1 p.m. or later.

Hoppy planning!
