    We are a big party. I made the different reservations but I didn’t do it for my 9yr old son, but now it says, parks are not available for the dates reserved for the rest of the party. What should I do?

    Hey there, Irving!

    Wow, what a frustrating situation you have run into! I have been in the same position as you. Every member of our family had Disney Park Pass system reservations made, except one! This was also on Easter weekend, so I was very concerned about not getting our passes in order. 

    Irving, I kept refreshing the My Disney Experience Mobile App, repeatedly, until I was able to snag a last-minute reservation. In my case, I lucked out and was able to get the reservations that I needed. Obviously, this method is not foolproof, so it is not something that I would recommend for your 9-year-old. 

    The first thing that I would do would be to check the Disney Park Pass system Availability Calendar to see what dates have availability. Once you have figured out which parks are available for which dates, I would move your entire group to a park that has open availability. 

    If the park that you would like to visit is fully booked, I recommend that you add the Park Hopper option to your ticket. The Park Hopper will let you start your day at one fantastic park, before moving to another magical park after 2:00 pm. 

    My fingers and toes are crossed for you!
