    Hi! My husband is an annual pass holder but the rest of us are not. We were able to book 3 days for him and 4 for us. Will he be able to come to the park with us the 4th day? What do we do to reserve more days for him

    Hi Jennifer!

    Welcome to planDisney! Disney’s Park Pass Reservation system is one way the Walt Disney World Resort is working to ensure the safety of all Guests in the theme parks. I’m glad you are already ahead of the game and have made some reservations for your family!

    There are two possible issues you may be having. The first is that Walt Disney World Annual Passholders may only reserve three Park Pass Reservations at a time. This sounds like it may be your issue. This is to allow room in the parks for Guests traveling from out-of-state and staying at one of the Disney Resort Collection Hotels. If you are staying at a Disney Resort Collection Hotel, your husband is entitled to make Park Pass Reservations for his entire length of stay. Make sure you have your resort reservation linked in My Disney Experience, and that your husband is also linked to this reservation. If this is all correct and you are still unable to make him a Park Pass Reservation, I recommend calling for tech support.

    If you are not staying at a Disney Resort Collection Hotel, after your husband has visited a theme park on the first day of your trip, he will then be able to add the fourth day. Of course, the concern is things could fill up. May is usually not as busy as spring break season, so hopefully you wouldn't run into this issue, but it is always a possibility. If you find that when he can book that fourth day, the park the rest of the family has reserved is full, it never hurts to visit Guest Relations with a friendly and patient demeanor and ask. You very well could be told no, but they may have some pixie dust available and may be able to help your husband join you on that last day. I would have a backup plan to visit a different theme park in case your husband cannot be accommodated.

    Also, there is currently a Passholder Special Offer on Disney Resort Collection Rooms during May. Perhaps an on-property stay would be the perfect ticket to staying in the magic and securing those desired Park Pass Reservations!

    As a Star Wars family, I know that May the Fourth is Star Wars Day, and Disney's Hollywood Studios is already partially booked for that day. If you are staying on property, and your husband is entitled to book Park Pass Reservations for the length of stay, but you aren't able to book Disney's Hollywood Studios on May the Fourth, it could simply be an availability issue. I would continue to check back daily. Other Guests’ plans do change and cancellations do occur. I just tried to reserve Disney’s Hollywood Studios on May the Fourth, and it was going to allow me to do so as an Annual Passholder, but I see reservations that day are partially full for other Guests. I have often been successful with stalking reservations daily, and I would encourage you to do the same.

    Jennifer, I hope this helps solve the mystery of why you are unable to secure a Park Pass Reservation for your husband. I am sending pixie dust that you are eventually able to snag the needed reservation!
