    We booked our flight/hotel for July 1 - 4. My kids want to go to Disney Hollywood Studios and Magic Kingdom. We were not aware that we needed reservations. We noticed that are no parks available for those dates. We are sad. What should we do now????

    Heigh-ho Maria, it's off to Walt Disney World you go!

    You must be getting excited that your vacation is just a few days away. Let's see what we can do to make it just as magical as you had hoped.

    During the current reopening phase, to help manage and limit capacity, all Guests need to make reservations to visit the theme parks using the Disney Park Pass System. Because so many Mouseketeers are celebrating our country's birthday in the Most Magical Place on Earth, Disney Park Passes are in high demand this week!

    I checked the Availability Calendar for you, and it looks like EPCOT and Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park are still accepting reservations for the dates of your trip. Both of these parks are fantastic and have plenty to zip-a-dee-do for Guests of all ages. EPCOT is my entire family's favorite Disney Park! If you haven't purchased theme park admission yet, you can still do so as long as at least one theme park has openings. I recommend making reservations for any parks that are available, and if you still want to visit Magic Kingdom Park or Disney's Hollywood Studios, keep checking the Availability Calendar to see if things open up, or add the Park Hopper® Option to your tickets. With this upgrade, you are welcome to visit a theme park for which you do not have reservations in the afternoon (pending availability), anytime after 2:00 PM.

    If you still can't score your preferred theme park reservations, consider visiting Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park. This splash-tacular park does not require reservations and is the perfect place for some frosty, family fun during Olaf's favorite season. My kids love the slides and the snacks here, and we spend several days a year hitting the slopes at this alpine-themed water park.

    I hope this is helpful and gives you some ideas for making the most of your upcoming getaway. Thanks for stopping by planDisney, and we'll see ya real soon!
