    Hello! How far in advance would you recommend making park reservations for Epcot and AK? We are coming the last week in August. This will be our first time traveling since they instituted the park reservation system-don't want to get shut out!! Thanks!

    Hello Erik, 

    Heigh-ho!  And welcome to planDisney, it's so great to see you here today.

    One of my greatest joys is found in planning a practically perfect in every way jolly holiday to the magic of Walt Disney World Resort.  It's truly satisfying to see all my carefully laid Disney plans looking neat and pretty within my own My Disney Experience account!

    Erik, when planning for your upcoming August holiday at Walt Disney World Resort, my best planDisney advice would certainly be for you to go ahead and link any already purchased Disney Theme Park Tickets to your My Disney Experience account. 

    Once your Disney Theme Park Tickets are successfully linked to your My Disney Experience account, it's never too early to select your zip-a-dee-doo-dah-Disney-days at EPCOT and Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park via the Disney Park Pass reservation system.

    Erik, it might be useful for you to know that it's always possible for Guests to check for up-to-the-magical-minute Theme Park availability via the Disney Park Pass availability calendar.  Plus, by taking a peek right now, you'll be able to see the current availability for the last week in August.

    With so much to do in Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort, I hope that I've been able to provide a little guidance, and insight for you today Erik.  Please don't hesitate to drop back to me here at planDisney if you should happen to have any additional questions that I can help you with.

    Have a great Disney day ~ Jane
