    If you buy a 4-Day, 1-Park-Per-Day ticket, how do you guarantee the 4th day of your ticket will be used, if you can only reserve 3 days of Park Pass Reservations? What if the 4th day is sold out by the time you can book it?

    Hey there, Lauren. Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. 

    When purchasing tickets, you are able to make park pass reservations for the number of days your ticket is valid. So, for you, if you were to buy a 4-day ticket, you would be able to make 4 days' worth of reservations. I think what you may be referring to is the rule regarding Annual Passes. For Guests with an Annual Pass, like myself, we are only able to make park pass reservations for 3 days at a time if we are not staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. 

    Once you purchase your Walt Disney World Theme Park tickets, the next step is to link them to your MyDisneyExperience account. If you don't have one yet, it is very easy to set up. Then, you'll need to link your tickets to your account. You can follow the steps listed here to do so. Now, it is time to make your park pass reservations. First, you'll need to visit the park pass reservation website. Then, if you're not already, log into your MyDisneyExperience account when prompted. Next, you'll create your party. You can select people from your friends and family list. After that, you'll see a calendar pop up. This is where you'll select the date you'd like to visit a Walt Disney World Theme Park. You can only make park pass reservations one day at a time. I like to pick the first day of my itinerary and work from there to keep things simple. Once you've selected the day, you'll see the four theme parks pop up under the calendar. There is where you'll select the Walt Disney World Theme Park you'd like to make a park pass reservation for. After you've made your choice, if there is theme park availability, you'll be taken to a confirmation screen and then have the option to make more park pass reservations. It may seem like a lot of steps but the process is very automated and will walk you through everything. 

    Before purchasing your Walt Disney World Theme Park tickets, I would check out the availability calendar to make sure there is plenty of availability for the dates you'd like to visit. The calendar is broken down into three categories - Guests with a resort reservation, Guests with theme park tickets only and Annual Passholders. You'll want to be sure you are viewing the calendar that pertains to you because they all do have different availability. 

    Lauren, I hope this helps clear up any confusion you may have had regarding the number of days you are able to make park pass reservations. If you have any other questions before your trip, please feel free to come back and ask me. I'm here to help! 

    Have fun!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
