DISNEYLAND PLANNING TIMELINE
Please click on the box below and select your Arrival Date to see a customized planning timeline.
We can make your Disney Dining Reservations 60 days before you travel.
Authorize your final payment 45 days before you travel. (your agent will send you an invoice)
Final deadline for payment completion is 30 days before you travel. After this day, your reservation will automatically cancel.
Your personalized planning dates should have also come with the email that led you to this page. Any questions? Let me know!
Disneyland Resort park hours can be found on our Disneyland brochure. Please note that park hours are only released a couple of months at a time. As you start planning your days, let's chat about other special events and opportunities going on at Walt Disney World, plus crowds and closures to avoid during your visit. You're also welcome to throw up your hands and say "HELP ME!" and you know what? I will!
Knowing where you are or where you want to go next can sometimes be a challenge. Get to know all of the Disney properties before you even arrive by viewing their online maps. Plan your first "have to do" or your entire day. Learn where everything is in relationship to each other... because most people don't want to walk from one side of a property to another for just one thing. This is where your game plan starts!
At Disneyland Resort, you can select one FASTPASS at a time. Once you have used that FASTPASS, you may check for availability through either the Disneyland Resort app or MaxPass. View all of the attractions that are included in Disneyland’s FASTPASS system.
When you add the Disney MaxPass feature to your ticket or package, you’ll be able to download, save and share all of your Disney PhotoPass photos captured during an entire day. Plus, you’ll have the opportunity to reserve digital Disney FASTPASS selections right from your mobile device using the Disneyland app while you’re in the parks. Enjoy both services for the low price of only $20 per ticket, per day!
Treasure your special memories at Disneyland Resort for a lifetime with the Disney PhotoPass service. Disney photographers are poised and ready to take your photos at several scenic locations throughout Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park — at Character Greetings, select dining locations, special events, and more. You can also find them wandering the parks, seeking to capture magical moments featuring you and your entire family.
There are several different options for purchasing your PhotoPass photos, all of which include digital downloads of your photos: Disney MaxPass; Disney PhotoPass+ One Week; Disney PhotoPass Collection Products; Annual Passholder Disney PhotoPass Downloads; or just purchasing a few photos. However if you’re going to buy more than 3 or 4 photos, it is more cost-effective to purchase one of the PhotoPass products listed.

DISNEYLAND DINING RESERVATIONS
As we plan, you should know a few things.
- All dining is based on availability.
- View all of the Park Hours to help with planning which days you want to go to each park. Of course, I am always available to help you pick your days and restaurants!
- View menus for various dining venues online by clicking on your chosen restaurant and then clicking on the menu. Menus and characters are subject to change, but it doesn't usually happen.
- Dining reservations are offered up to 60 days in advance at select restaurants throughout the Disneyland Resort and, due to limited availability, they are highly recommended. You can make dining reservations online or call (714) 781-DINE or (714) 781-3463. Your agent may also be able to help you with making your dining reservations.
--- All dining reservations have a $10 per person, one day cancellation policy ---
If you ever have any questions, I am always available to help you get the answers you need to make this trip as stress-free as possible.
This list is not comprehensive. You could spend months at Disneyland Resort and you wouldn't see it all or even know what you were missing! It's a good start, though. And if you have something you're interested in - say, golf or water sports, fishing or an upscale dining event? I want you to let me know. My job is to be educated about Disneyland Resort and more importantly, to make sure you have the vacation of your dreams.
