    How far in advance do you need to make a theme park reservation? Can I do it the day before?

    Hi Melissa!

    How nice to see you stopping by planDisney to ask a question! 

    It looks as if you are doing some great research to prepare for an upcoming visit to the Walt Disney World Resort! With the Disney Park Pass system, we can now make theme park reservations up through September 26, 2021. Although you could potentially make a theme park reservation the day before your visit, availability is limited at this time and may continue to be limited depending on health and safety guidance.

    Check the park pass availability calendar as you consider the dates of your visit. I would definitely suggest that you make those theme park pass reservations as soon as possible. Know also that you can make park pass reservations and cancel them later if your plans change. I had to modify several of our park pass selections for an upcoming trip. The process was quite easy once I accessed the system!

    To make theme park pass selections, be sure that you have a My Disney Experience Account and theme park tickets. Also be sure that everyone visiting with you is linked in your My Disney Experience Account via the My Family & Friends list. If you have not yet purchased tickets or made resort hotel reservations, I suggest going ahead and booking a vacation package online with theme park tickets so that you can make those park pass reservations. If you need to cancel that vacation package at a later time, just do so within the cancellation window - check here for 2020 package terms and conditions.

    As you plan, continue to check the operational updates, especially those for resort hotels and dining experiences. Procedures and availability could change, so continue to check those updates as it gets closer to the dates of your visit. And, as always, you can call 407-939-5277 if you need assistance with park tickets or a resort hotel stay!

    Melissa, we are so excited to welcome you back to a world of magic!

    Magic and memories,
