Your Guide to Disneyland's New Theme Park Reservation System

Disneyland Reservation System - PinterestHip, hop, hurray — the magic has returned to the Happiest Place on Earth! After what feels like the first time in forever, Disneyland Resort reopened its theme parks April 30, 2021! Out-of-state visitors are welcome to visit. You can reserve your park dates now, up to 120 days in advance (or 90 days if you are a Magic Key pass holder). Here's how to make Disneyland theme park reservations and purchase Disneyland tickets (on sale now)!

You'll want to read carefully as Disneyland recently changed the process for purchasing tickets through the Disneyland site. You must now select dates to reserve before purchasing when buying tickets through Disneyland. 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 if you need to cancel and change them.

We were so hoppy to jump back into the action when we visited Disneyland Resort, and if you feel the same way, there are some important things you need to know before you visit. To visit Disneyland or Disney California Adventure, you will need valid admission for that park AND a reservation using the new 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!

We'd like to think that Disneyland missed us (and you!) too! Making a reservation using the new Disneyland theme park reservation system is the first step in hopping back into the magic we've all missed so much.

Who Needs to Make Disneyland Reservations?

Disneyland Reservation System - People in Food Ears Outside Disneyland

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

Disneyland has set aside a limited number of park reservations for visitors in order 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 will be released on a rolling basis, 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 they go quickly.

What About Annual Passes?

In other frogciting news, Disneyland announced the sale of new annual passes. Magic Key passes are on sale now. The Magic Key program replaces 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 (for other ticket holders, it's 120 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 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.

Unlike people with 1-day and multi-day ticket reservations, Magic Key holders face penalties for no-shows. Key holders can cancel a reservation without penalty up until 11:59 p.m. the night before the reservation. However, if they no-show three times in a 90-day period, 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 no-show, they can simply make a new reservation. To avoid a Magic Key no-show, a Key holder should cancel by the night before or enter the park before closing on the day of the reservation.

How Do I Buy Tickets and Make a Reservation?

Disneyland Reservation System - A person scans tickets at the turnstileWhether 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, available now! After you purchase, you will link your tickets and visit the theme park reservations page.

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 now 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.
  • Know Before You Go to the Disneyland Parks — For specific details about park hoppenings, health and safety guidelines or changes to expect during your visit, head to Disneyland's Know Before You Go site.

Here are three more hopful posts that may make visiting much easier for you:

From how (and when) to arrive, to seeing characters, to tips for finding your favorite foods without a wait, these are great resources during this reopening period.

When to Book

You'll need to plan your visit in advance, but you are limited to 120 days in advance at this time. The reservations are released on a rolling basis, and new reservations for 120 days 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 shortly after 6 a.m.). You can always cancel dining up to 24 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 New Theme Park Reservation System-Purchasing through Disneyland pricingIf you want to purchase a 1-Day ticket, you'll need to go through the Disney site. Don't worry; it 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 click Select Ticket.
  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 and park for your theme park reservation, subject to availability. With a Park Hopper, select your starting park for each day of your visit and Next.
  6. For added convenience, you may now select the add-on option of purchasing parking vouchers in advance.
  7. Review your current selections, add to cart and purchase!

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.

You may have noticed that ticket prices have increased recently. You'll want to hop down to compare costs for purchasing from Undercover Tourist.

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 cancel the reservations and rebook. 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

Disneyland Reservation System - Infographic StepsIn order 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! Here's how to do it. We expect to continually update this post as new information comes in.

How to Make a Disneyland Park Reservation 

First off, you need to buy a ticket or link an existing ticket. Theme park tickets that expired during the theme park closure have extended expiration dates. (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). You'll receive a confirmation email that includes your E-ticket so that you can hop on those reservations!

Disneyland Reservation System - Starting Page for Theme Park 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). Then, access the theme park reservation system. You'll have two choices: Book Theme Park Reservation or Retrieve Hotel Reservation (which allows you to link a resort reservation to your account). Once you click Book Theme Park Reservations, you'll see Create Your Party. (If you do not see your tickets, click +Link a ticket to link your park admission.)
  2. 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.
  3. Your Guide to Disneyland's New Theme Park Reservation System-Availability calendarSelect 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 (this photo is not current as availability changes all the time). If a date has no park availability left, you'll see a slash through it. 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 will cancel and rebook.
  4. Review and confirm your visit. Provide an email address (this may be auto-populated, so be sure to double-check it) to receive confirmation of your reservation and QR code. You'll be able to see or manage your park reservations on the top of the home page in the Disneyland app at any time. Be prepared to present your QR code (if asked) and the associated valid ticket when you arrive at Disneyland Resort. (Cast members are not asking for the QR code — you just need your ticket — when you enter, but it's good to have proof just in case something goes wrong.)

Tips for Navigating the Site

We frogs consider ourselves pretty sharp when it comes to navigating the theme parks, but Disneyland reservations are new for everyone, us included! We've just booked our tickets. We purchased multi-day tickets through Undercover Tourist, linked our tickets and then made our Disneyland theme park reservations. We know the process can be stressful and take a while at busy times!

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 wanted 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 Theme Park Reservation Details to start reserving.

Disneyland Reservation System - Create Your Party

You should see your tickets 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 that date you selected.

Theme park reservation dates can be changed (provided your ticket isn't date-based), but it's worth noting that it isn't a straight swap. Instead, you'll need to cancel 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.

Reservation Limitations:

  • Guests may make reservations up to 120 days in advance.
  • Key Holders may make reservations up to 90 days in advance.
  • Theme park reservations may not be modified, but they can be canceled by visiting "My Theme Park Reservations." You can then rebook a reservation.

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 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 1 p.m. and enter either park no matter your reservation if arriving after 1 p.m.
  3. Review and confirm your visit. (Do not froget to scroll down and complete this step.)

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.

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.

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

Disneyland has a tiered pricing schedule for the 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 good news is that Disneyland did not raise prices from 2020 pricing on 1-Day Tickets. Of course, 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 whether you have a 1-Day Ticket or a 5-Day Ticket. The Park Hopper is $60 more no matter how many days you're visiting, so a Multi-Day Park Hopper is an especially good value.

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 ticket tiers and prices for 1-Day Tickets with admission to 1 park per day (prices went up as of Oct. 25, 2021):

  • Adult 1-Day Tier 6 Ticket with Admission to 1 Park Per Day — $164 (New)
  • Adult 1-Day Tier 5 Ticket With Admission to 1 Park Per Day — $159 ($150child)
    • Good any day!
  • Adult 1-Day Tier 4 Ticket With Admission to 1 Park Per Day — $149 ($141child)
  • Adult 1-Day Tier 3 Ticket With Admission to 1 Park Per Day — $134 ($127 child)
  • Adult 1-Day Tier 2 Ticket With Admission to 1 Park Per Day — $119 ($113child)
  • Adult 1-Day Tier 1 Ticket With Admission to 1 Park Per Day — $104 ($98 child)

Park Hopper 1-Day Tickets :

  • Adult 1-Day Tier 6 Park Hopper Ticket — $224 (New)
  • Adult 1-Day Tier 5 Park Hopper Ticket — $219 ($210 child)
  • Adult 1-Day Tier 4 Park Hopper Ticket — $209 ($201 child)
  • Adult 1-Day Tier 3 Park Hopper Ticket — $194 ($187 child)
  • Adult 1-Day Tier 2 Park Hopper Ticket — $179 ($173 child)
  • Adult 1-Day Tier 1 Park Hopper Ticket — $164 ($158 child)

If you have older unused 1-Day Peak, Regular and Value tickets, you can find the ticket dates by scrolling down on the ticket dates page:

  • 1-Day Peak Tickets — All days available
  • 1-Day Regular Tickets
  • 1-Day Value Tickets — the most restricted number of days available.

Most tickets' expiration dates have been extended.

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.

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. Look at the refund policy on the ticket you wish to buy for the details.

Multi-Day Ticket Prices

Hoppy news — multi-day tickets are available now too! Like 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, 2023, 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. Disneyland recently increased ticket prices, but Undercover Tourist will continue to sell at the old prices for a limited time, so buy now for the best deal.

What to Know Before You Make Your Disneyland Reservation

Disneyland Reservation System - People in Masks meet Mater in Cars Land

With safety a top priority, you'll find some new policies in place throughout the Disneyland Resort. Here are full details about the health and safety policies and what to expect during the Disneyland reopening. 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 can find out more about extended expiration dates for existing tickets and unused tickets in our post that covers status information for theme parks and resorts.
  • If you have an eligible unused Disneyland ticket from before the closure, the expiration date is updated. You can link your ticket to your Disney account in the Disneyland app or online to see the new expiration date.
  • Linking your tickets to the Disneyland app does not void Undercover Tourist's return policy.
  • You will want to link all the tickets to at least one account to make joining a virtual queue for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and WEB Slingers 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 ages 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.

Making Dining and Other Experience Reservations

Disneyland Reservation System - Person in Mask at Carthay CircleOnce you make your Disneyland Park Reservations, you may want to book dining or the lightsaber building experience at Savi's Workshop right away. You may book up to 60 days in advance. You can even book dining before you book your park reservation. Just remember to 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. You can make dining reservations or add your party to the walk-up list at select table-service restaurants via the Disneyland app after your Park Hopper ticket is used to enter the second park. This is subject to availability. Limited dining and experience reservations are available.

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. Park Hopper availability may change daily (although hopping has not been an issue so far).

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!

Hi quick question, I bought 3 tickets one day hopper. When I bought it the reservation is only showing California adventure as open for starting park, now both parks are open on the calendar, is my reservation good enough to go straight to the Disneyland side instead?

May 19, 2021 at 10:47 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Arwin,

You would need to cancel one of your Disney California Park reservations and rebook a reservation for Disneyland if you want to start there. Otherwise, you'd still be able to hop after 1 p.m.

Hoppy planning!

I have an upcoming reservation and both the tickets are in my name. Will I need to change the name for my guest? if so, any idea how? Thanks!

May 17, 2021 at 10:53 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Dawn!

Lately, because there have been so many guests in similar circumstances, Disneyland has not been checking the names on the tickets - so while we recommend doing all you can to purchase and reserve under the correct names, this should not be an issue for you :) Once you enter the turnstile, the cast member will hand you a paper ticket and may take your photo and then that ticket is tied to you and your guest's ticket will be tied to them.

Hoppy planning!

We just purchased a set of 2 day/1-park per day tickets. When I go to make a reservation, it shows only DCA on the first day (which is fine). If we pick DCA as our starting day park, does that mean we *automatically* get DL on the second day? Or are we locked into DCA on both days?

May 17, 2021 at 4:02 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi ConcernedDaddy!

If you have one park per day tickets, you'll have to select the park to visit based on what's available (so if only DCA is showing as available on the multi-day availability calendar, that's where you'd spend both days). Hope this helps!

Hoppy planning!

I just purchased a 4 day park hopper ticket. What happens if I am only able to go 3 days within the 13 day period? Do I just lose that day on the ticket?

May 13, 2021 at 6:26 p.m. Nancy Says...

Thank you for all the important information!

I bought the ticket for 6/9, however, it does not have the park I would like to visit. When I made reservations, I select 7/12. Does the ticket date has to be the same as the reservation date?

Thank you very much!

May 13, 2021 at 2:43 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Nancy!

You are so welcome - thank you for hopping by! If you have a date-based one-day ticket, your ticket date will need to line up with your reservation date.

Hi! When looking at the calendar and only Ca Adventure is the only option on specific days, does that mean we can only go to Ca Adventure? If we purchase park hopper tickets, do we start at Ca Adventure, at 1pm can go to Disney? Or do we need to pick dates where both parks are available that day? My fear is that they'll be at capacity and we won't be able to go to Dland the same day.

This is stressful! :)

May 13, 2021 at 2:47 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Jodi!

We toadally understand - such pressure when we're so excited to hop back into the magic! If you have Park Hopper tickets and the calendar is only showing Disney California Adventure Park as available, that means that you'll need to start at DCA, but are still eligible to hop at 1 p.m. to Disneyland (so Disneyland is only unavailable to start your day at, but you can still hop :) ). Hope this helps!

Hoppy planning!

As long as the times do not overlap, you would be able to hold all three of those reservations in a day.

Quick question, as I can't find the answer but maybe because the answer is obvious, I'm not sure? We purchased park hopper tickets. We understand that currently we can hop to the other park at 1pm or later. After that point, are we able to hop back and forth at any time, pending there is capacity at the park? Thank you!

May 12, 2021 at 1:06 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Cindy,

Yes! Once it's 1 p.m., you may hop between the parks as many times as you'd like, subject to park capacity.

Hi, I purchased 1 day 1 park tickets. How do I upgrade to park hopper tickets? Can I do it online prior to my visit? Or do I do it in person the day of? Will I be able to do it the day of?

May 12, 2021 at 10:13 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Be,

Right now, the only official way to upgrade to park hopper ticket is by going to a ticket booth location at the parks. However, there is a chance that the park hopper ticket may not be available the day of your visit. You could try calling Guest Relations in advance, but be aware that the wait time has been long.

Hoppy planning!

Hello, we’ll be visiting CA from out of state in mid-July. Is it advisable to buy tickets/make reservations now when the date is available in case Disney lifts the ban from now until our trip? Just don’t want reservations to book up.

Very helpful blog, Thank you!

May 11, 2021 at 2:49 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Kim!

We definitely recommend purchasing tickets in advance - you won't be able to reserve your spot until the system opens up to out-of-state visitors, but having the tickets in hand will save you a step when those open up since you'll already have them in hand and linked in your account :)

Hoppy planning!

I have a socal resident park Hopper ticket that my son used for 1 day prior to closure and there are 2 days left. He is not ready to go to a theme park but other vaccinated members of my family are. Can I transfer his ticket to someone else in the family for them to use?

Disneyland tickets are nontransferable, so you'll want to hang onto the existing ticket until your son is ready to visit - hope this helps!

Hi! Hopefully my question makes sense ;) We purchased tier 2 tickets and now we’re thinking of going on a different day with a higher tier. I realize we can only upgrade our tier at the ticket booths, but if we cancel our reservations, are we even able to make reservations for a higher tiered date if we have lower tiered tickets? Or would we need the same tiered tickets to reserve that date?

May 10, 2021 at 12:28 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi there!

You will not be able to make reservations for a higher tier with a lower-tier ticket, unfortunately. You would have to visit the ticket booth to upgrade, but then you would not likely be able to get in the park that day if reservations are full. You can try calling to upgrade, but know that hold times have been long. The other option if you plan to visit again in the next year or two is to purchase a higher-tier ticket and save the Tier 2 ticket for a future trip.

Hoppy planning!

Hello! We purchased park hopper tickets and reserved May 12 which had availability for California Adventure as the starting park. But my ticket reservations say California Adventure ALL DAY. Do I need to reschedule for a day that has both parks available or are we still able to hop to the other park after 1pm?

May 7, 2021 at 5:44 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Leslie!

You should still be good to hop! Park Hoppers have had the name of the park you're starting at on them, but as long as you purchased park hoppers, you'll be set to hop after 1 p.m. :)

Hoppy planning!

This is a great article, thank you! So even though you don't need a specific reservation for the park you plan on hopping to, I see they usually add this caveat: "but, as always, theme park admission is subject to attendance availability." Do you know if people have had a hard time hopping to Disneyland? Has it been filling up? Not sure if you have heard, but I thought I'd ask!

May 10, 2021 at 12:31 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Emma,

Thanks for hopping by! So far, there have been no problems with hopping — we were able to successfully hop on Opening Day. While it's possible a park could hit capacity, we have not seen that hoppening just yet, and park hopping has been smooth and easy.

Hoppy planning!

I’m going this weekend to Disney but I forgot to add my 3 year old daughter to my reservation she has a ticket but I thought I added her but I didn’t I have the hotel and everything there’s no way I can cancel now what should I do

May 6, 2021 at 7:37 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Cruz!

Keep checking back to see if any reservations open up, as cancellations can happen - be sure you are looking for just that single reservation for her rather than trying to move the whole group. You can also try calling Guest Relations at (407) 939-5277 to see if they have any suggestions for you. Crossing our froggy fingers for you!

How do I upgrade tier 4 to tier 5 ticket? I checked the website, it said you can contact Guest Relations but I didn’t see any phone number. Do you know can I pay the different over the phone? Thank you so much!

May 5, 2021 at 4:19 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Amy,

Try calling Ticketing at 714-781-4636 (though prepare for longer hold times). Upgrades can also be made in person at Guest Relation locations, with some limitations, but we'd try calling first, as reservations may fill up by the time you visit.

Hoppy planning!

please disregard last comment. I realized that I had not canceled all three days of the reservation. So I was locked into a certain window. Once I canceled all of the days, I had access to the full calendar. :)

I made reservations and then needed to change the days. I canceled the reservations, for the end of June, and tried to rebook for earlier in the month. But the site is blocking out all days until the week before my original reservation. Is there some kind of penalty for rescheduling a reservation? Or a waiting period? The calendar on the site shows almost all the days still available. But when I'm logged in and trying to reschedule reservations, I can not click on any days in May, nor half the days in June.

May 14, 2021 at 10:39 p.m. Tiffany Mladinich Says...

Hello, I bought 1 day, 1 park tickets for June 17 and made the park reservations. My fathers military funeral was then given the same date. It says the tickets are non refundable. I can cancel and reschedule the park reservation, but the ticket date and the reservation have to match. What can I do? Thank you.

May 1, 2021 at 8:35 p.m. Sarah Says...

Hi. I purchased park hopper tickets for May 6 (the reservation calendar had availability for both parks this day). We selected to do Disneyland first and end at California Adventure. I just looked at my tickets and it says "May 6 ALL DAY Disneyland Park". Does that mean I now can only do Disneyland and not hop over to California Adventure after 1pm? Any help would be appreciated as their phones are still turned off.

May 3, 2021 at 3:54 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Sarah!

Nope, you should still be good to hop - hoppers are listed that way based on the park you'll be starting at (which is a little confusing), but as long as you purchased a park hopper ticket, those benefits are still available to you at 1 p.m. :)

At this time, you'll need to cancel your current reservation and make a new one (there's no way to edit or change what's currently in place). Hope this helps!

Hello! I have purchased 2 3-day park hoppers from you, for me and my husband for hopefully a December trip. We each have our own Disney account which our individual tickets are linked to. But when I try to link his ticket to me and my ticket to his account, to "Create a Party" later, the app on the web and phone will not allow me to link. Do you know why?

Apr 25, 2021 at 11:49 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Becky!

We are hearing more and more stories that tickets can now be linked to only one account at a time. This is a change from before the closure that we are just learning more about. You can use the Disneyland chat in the app or call to have a ticket unlinked from one account and added to the other account. It’s a bit of an inconvenience, but you ideally want to have them linked to the same account if you want to join a Boarding Group for Rise of the Resistance. Hope this helps!

I bought our 4 tickets and made our reservations but I now have 1 person that is not able to come. I see there is a Cancel Reservation but I only want to cancel the one ticket. If I select this option, will it prompt me to just cancel the one ticket? Or will it cancel my reservation for all 4 tickets?


Apr 20, 2021 at 5:26 p.m. Donald Wicks Says...

Is there a list of all the available reservation places for 4/22 so we know where we need to book for our park reservation dates?

What if we have reservations but need to change the name? It only says to cancel but not change. With the rush of trying to get a ticket and reserving, the original person can't go and I want to change the name. Any ideas?

Apr 19, 2021 at 7:08 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

So far, unfortunately, the only way we've heard to remedy this is to cancel; there is no option to change. Sorry to be the froggies bearing bad news!

Hello! I used the new system to purchase tickets and made a reservation. But now I regret not getting park hoppers! :( Do you know if we will be able to upgrade to park hoppers like usual, or if that won't be an option? I have been trying to call guest services but I can't get through, and I haven't been able to find anything about it on the Disneyland website. Thanks in advance!

Apr 22, 2021 at 2:28 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Elizabeth!

You will be able to upgrade to park hoppers at the ticketing booths, but in the meantime, we'd keep trying to reach Guest Relations (we know there are long waits right now, but it can't be done via the app, unfortunately!).

Thanks for all the useful info; unfortunately, we have hit a glitch in the system. We've been in the queue since 7:40 AM, finally connected at 6 PM only to be taken straight to the reservation page for linking tickets with no option to actually purchase tickets! Came to this site to buy tickets, have received confirmation but still waiting for tickets to be emailed so we can secure our reservation. I'm getting the feeling that this Disney trip is doomed! :( ...

We have our tickets and finally got through to reserve. The only issue is that your tickets are 19 digits whereas Disney is asking for 16 digits.

The tickets appear incompatible. I've tried dropping the first 3 digits; last 3 digits, etc. To no avail.

Any thoughts?

Apr 16, 2021 at 6:44 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Robert,

We are sorry you are having trouble. Be sure to use your E-Ticket number that is located under the barcode on your ticket. Have you tried using logging into the Disneyland app to scan the barcode for each ticket? We found that much easier than typing in numbers. Or, at Disneyland.com, navigate to "My Disneyland." On the drop down menu, Select "Link Tickets." The box the says "ID Number" accepts 19 digits. When you log in to make the reservation during the reservation process, you should see all your tickets available. Let us know if you are still having trouble, or feel free to give us a call at 1 (800) 846-1302.

Hoppy planning!

I'm still in the queue... it's been 7 hours, and I swear I've seen my browser refresh on its own. :( So discouraged. I'm confused about one of the things I read on the Disneyland website. "Limit one theme park reservation per Guest, per day." Does that mean I can't buy more than one ticket for myself or my daughter?

Apr 15, 2021 at 4:47 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Wendy!

It just means that you can't assign yourself two reservations for the same day - one for you and your daughter is toadally fine (the same goes for tickets!). You'll just want to make sure that the ticket that you buy for her has her own name assigned to it (which you'll manually input). Hope this helps - and hoping things start moving for you very soon! Sending froggy hugs.

Hello, I made reservations but have someone who wants to join us. Do you know if can add them to our existing reservation or would I have to cancel and make new reservations?

Apr 15, 2021 at 3:37 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Nikolai!

We don't see a way to add more guests to your existing party right now, so our recommendation would be to see if you can make a separate reservation on the same date for them rather than cancelling yours (since it may be easier to reserve for 1 than a group due to capacity restraints). Hope this helps!

Apr 15, 2021 at 7:40 p.m. Nicole Says...

Hi, has anyone been able to make reservations? I purchased tickets with you and linked them successfully in my app but there is no option in the app to make my theme park reservation now. I have been sitting in the thunder mountain railroad circle of doom for hours.

Apr 15, 2021 at 3:47 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Nicole!

Once you link your ticket, you'll need to hop into the queue to make your reservation (so you are in the right spot!). That can also be accessed at StartYourDisneylandExperience.com. We had success with it earlier today (linking tickets and then making reservations from the linked tickets), but that was prior to the reservation site rebooting - we are hearing that things are starting to move again! Keep us posted, and please feel free to give us a call at 1 (800) 846-1302 with any questions. Crossing our froggy fingers for you!

Hi Cindy!

You will not need to select a start date when purchasing a multi-day ticket through Undercover Tourist :) You will, however, need to make a park reservation for the dates you wish to attend, which will be released a few months in advance, like you mentioned.

Disneyland tickets are valid until January of 2023, but Disneyland is only releasing park reservations a few months in advance. So while you can purchase your ticket today, you may not be able to reserve your December dates for a few months. Hope this helps!

Do you have any guesses about whether it will feel crowded or if lines will be long?

I know the capacity will be at 25% or 35%, but I am curious what that will feel like. We are looking to go the week of 5/17 -5/21 (M - F)., if that helps

Thanks for any help and for the info on this blog!


Apr 15, 2021 at 8:11 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Steve!

You are so welcome - thank you for saying hello! We do have some guesses about how things will feel, and we've updated our Crowd Calendar tentatively with our thoughts; we're going to continue to tweak it as we visit and see how things play out in real life :) Unlike the reopening of the Florida parks, we think things will be pretty busy from the get-go, with high demand to get into the parks (even if it's just Californians at first - I know we've all missed the magic!). With certain experiences such as shows unavailable (which tend to absorb some of the crowd) plus limited capacity on the rides, we expect things to feel about a 6-7 on your trip, with things feeling busier as the week goes on. One thing we will say is that lines will LOOK long due to spacing, but they may not always be as long as they seem :) We'll keep you posted as we learn more! Have so much fun on your trip!
