    We are having a hard time booking disney park reservations for all the parks on our 3 day passes. Is it possible for us to split the visits up amongst different months so that we can visit all the parks? Instead of 3 consecutive dyas?

    Hi Katrina!

    Welcome to planDisney! With safety being the utmost priority for Guests and Cast Members, the Disney Park Pass System was created to limit the number of Guests in each theme park daily to aid in social distancing. These Park Pass Reservations are booking a month or two in advance, and so unfortunately some Guests find themselves wanting to visit the parks, but unable to secure the desired Park Pass Reservations.

    Once you use the first day of your 3-Day ticket, the remaining 2 days expire 5 days after the start date. So you can skip a day or two in the middle if needed, but you cannot save your remaining days for a trip several months in the future.

    Not to worry! I do have a few suggestions for you. First, you should book the park or parks that you can now. Then I would check the Theme Park Availability Calendar daily, or several times daily if you are able. In my many years traveling to Disney, I have found luck favors those who stalk reservations. People can and do cancel, or Disney may open more slots. Even if you have booked the same park for multiple days, use that opportunity to slow down, take in the details, enjoy meals and snacks, take a mid-day break to return to your resort for a swim, and truly enjoy the park. I see that Epcot is still available that week and recommend you stroll, sip and savor your way through the Taste of Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival!

    The best idea I think, would be to add the Park Hopper Option to your Disney Theme Park Tickets. With the Park Hopper Option, you must visit the park you have a Park Pass Reservation for in the morning, but then you may "hop" to another park after 2 PM, as long as there is availability. So far, Guests have not encountered any capacity issues when hopping after 2 PM, and this would allow you to visit one park in the morning and a different one in the evening, or even visit all 4 parks this way. Call ticketing to add this option to your tickets!

    Since you asked about using your tickets in the future, the other option is to save your 3-Day tickets for a future visit, and purchase a new 1 or 2 Day ticket for your May visit. Although you cannot use some days of a 3-Day ticket now and some later, the value of a wholly unused ticket can be applied to a ticket for a future visit. This means that if you return to visit in August or September, you can apply the cost of your 3-Day ticket to your ticket then. If the ticket is the same price, then you are good to go and you can go ahead and make Park Pass Reservations for those dates now. If the ticket needed for a future trip is a higher price point, you will only need to call ticketing to pay the difference, and then you would be able to make Park Pass Reservations.

    I hope one of these suggestions will work for you. In the meantime, I am sending pixie dust for you, that you can snag those desired Park Pass Reservations!
