    I have a 2 day pass. The first day we secured will be fine. The second day, 2 days later, is up in the air. We may be able to go a day earlier but won’t know until the day before. What is the cutoff for changing a reservation?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Margaret. Thanks for stopping by to chit-chat with me about your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation. 

    Margaret, it sounds like you have a fun few days coming up later this month. A two-day theme park ticket is a perfect way to enjoy some time at Walt Disney World. Do you have your two theme parks picked out yet? I love all four so there isn't really a bad choice. If I had to pick, I'd probably go with Magic Kingdom Park because it is the quintessential Disney park and then I'd probably spend my 2nd day snacking and sipping around The World Showcase at EPCOT

    I think you'll be happy to know that even though you have a 2-day ticket, you will actually have 4 days after the selected start date to use it up. So you don't have to decide right now which day you want to use your 2nd day theme park ticket on. With that being said, you are still required to have park pass reservations for both days. Park pass reservations are basically like a virtual placeholder in line at the theme park you'd like to visit each day. Sometimes park pass reservations can get booked up so you'll want to keep an eye on the Walt Disney World Theme Park availability calendar. You can change up your park pass reservation even on the day of but only if there is availability. If I were you, I'd go ahead and grab a park pass reservation for the day and theme park you think you'll visit just in case they start to fill up. Then, if you can go a day earlier and there is availability you can go ahead and drop that particular park pass reservation and make your new one for a different day. I would just hate to see you not be able to use that second-day ticket because there isn't any theme park availability. I did take a look at the April availability and depending on your theme park ticket and if you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel or not, it is fairly full. 

    I hope this helps, Margaret. If you have any other questions about this or anything else, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm happy 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
