    I am a gold passholder. When making a reservation, I noticed there was more availability for Disney Resort guests than for annual passholder. I am planning on staying at a Disney Resort so what option would I have to select when making my park admission?

    Hi Jenny!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We are delighted to see you stopping by to ask another great question.

    As an Annual Passholder with a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel reservation you will have access to make Disney Park Pass selections for the length of your stay. We are also annual passholders and were able to make our Disney Park Pass selections for the length of our resort stay. And, happy update just arrived - annual passholders are now able to make theme park selections for up to three days in addition to our resort hotel stays.

    If you do not already have that resort hotel stay, I suggest that you make it as soon as possible. Make sure it is linked in your My Disney Experience account. Also pay close attention to the Disney Resort Hotel updates to make sure your resort hotel is opening by the dates of your visit. I had a resort hotel reservation for mid-November that was just switched to a different resort. 

    It sounds as if you have familiarized yourself with the Park Pass Availability Calendar. Keep an eye on it for the dates of your visit. Prior to making those Park Pass selections, check your Friends & Family list to be sure that everyone is linked and has valid theme park admission. Once you log into the Disney Park Pass system, you should be able to just make those reservations. 

    Jenny, I do have a word of caution. Be careful if you cancel a Park Pass selection with the intention to make another one for a different day. I was able to cancel and make new selections several times but then on the last time, was unable to make the new selections. Thankfully, I was able to call and speak with a Cast Member who made the selections for me! Remember that Park Pass availability is subject to Annual Pass blockout dates.

    Sending you pixie dust as you plan trusting that you will be able to make all of those Park Pass reservations!

    Magic and memories,
