    When I booked my trip through Disney. I was told I could just purchase tickets when I arrive. I noticed in the website that Holllywood is booked in the dates I am planning to arrive. Is it true that it’s too late to purchase tickets to the park??

    Hi there, Melissa! Thanks so much for stopping by to see us here at the planDisney panel! We love to help Guests plan their dream vacations to Walt Disney World, and it would be my pleasure to help you with yours.

    Much has changed since the pleased reopening of the Disney Parks, including what is necessary before entry into a Disney Theme Park. You will need a valid Theme Park Ticket plus a Disney Park Pass Reservation for each day you wish to visit a Disney Theme Park. It is best to purchase these Tickets in advance, as Disney Park Pass Reservations will be tough to obtain on the day you wish to visit. I would hate for you to arrive and be disappointed when some advance planning could have hopefully prevented it!

    It also sounds like you have found the Disney Park Pass Reservation availability calendar! Once you have purchased your Disney Theme Park Tickets and linked them to your My Disney Experience Account, you may make your Park Pass Reservations. While some Theme Parks may be unavailable, if you do not book well in advance, there may be even less availability. Some Theme Parks may become available, so do keep checking! Also, did you know that Park Hopping is now available again? If you have the Park Hopper option added to your Theme Park Tickets, you may switch parks starting at 2 pm each day, so that may give you the flexibility you need! 

    Melissa, I hope that this information helps you continue to plan your amazing vacation! Before you go, check out the Experience Updates pages for more details on all the procedures in place at the Disney Parks, which are in place to make it possible for everyone to start returning to the magic. Lastly, know that we are here for you during every step of your planning process, and you may come back and see us again anytime you like!

    Wishing you many magical memories,
