    I want to buy tickets for a Christmas gift but I want to reserve for October 2022 but this date is not available yet. Can I purchase and reserve later?

    Greetings Space Ranger!

    Welcome to planDisney, let’s get you geared up and ready to fly to Infinity & Beyond!

    Debbie, what an excellent gift to give! I completely understand your worry about the new theme park reservation system. Hakuna Matata…it means no worries and I’m here to help. 

    You can go ahead and purchase theme park tickets now, but keep in mind theme park tickets do have an expiration date. Depending on the tickets you purchase, they might expire before they can be used for a visit. I recommend calculating the total cost of the theme park tickets and placing that amount on a Disney Gift Card.

    This will allow the person who is receiving the gift to use the gift card, closer to their travel dates, to purchase their theme park tickets and schedule theme park reservations. 

    I hope this suggestion helps answer your question, Debbie! Good luck! I just know they will enjoy this magical gift.
