    Alyssa from CA Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    Is there a way to cancel a Disney reservation the day of? Our son is sick and we don’t want to spread germs but also don’t want to be penalized for not showing up for our reservation.

    Welcome to planDisney, Alyssa!

    Thank you for bringing your question about the reservation system to our corner of the Disney universe. I’m so sorry your little prince isn’t feeling well! I know plans can change and it can be difficult to navigate the reservation system for the Disneyland Resort at first, so I’m on the job, you big nabob. You ain't never had a planDisney friend like me!

    Alyssa, if you’re using theme park tickets and you are not part of the Magic Key program, you have until the clock strikes midnight the evening before your visit to cancel your theme park reservations. After that, if you cancel your reservation on the day you were scheduled to visit or never scan your ticket that day, you cannot make a new reservation until the following day. 

    But Alyssa, suppose you stay one jump ahead of your reservation and cancel it before the day of. In that case, you can make a whole new reservation up to 120 days in advance (as long as your theme park ticket has not expired).

    I hope this answers your question about making the most of your theme park reservations at the Disneyland Resort, Alyssa. If you have follow-up questions, I'm in the mood to help you, dude!  I’d love to share my favorite tips or suggestions for your next visit! All you gotta do is rub that lamp and whisper what it is you want for me to make your planning wishes come true! 

    Wishing you happy landings!
