    Let's say I purchase a ticket when the Theme Park Reservation Availability calendar shows the park I want to visit as available, but, by the time I get to the reservation system, the park is no longer available. What options do I have at that point?

    Hi there, Rory! Welcome to planDisney!

    I appreciate your diligence when it comes to planning the Walt Disney World Resort vacation of your dreams! A Disney Vacation has quite a few more planning steps than just any vacation, but I promise, the magic is worth it!

    For starters, you've got a great handle on the process already. The first step to visiting the Walt Disney World theme parks is to check the Theme Park Reservation Availability Calendar. Once you confirm that the date and park you'd like to book are available, you should purchase your tickets and make theme park reservations right away. While it is a possibility, reservations will rarely book up in the time it takes you to purchase tickets and make those reservations.

    However, if you're nervous that this could happen, you always have the option of working directly with a Cast Member to book your day in the park. Simply call the New Tickets Line and you'll be greeted by a friendly voice on the other end of the phone, one who can help you secure the reservations you seek. These Cast Members will be able to check the availability for you, then purchase your tickets and make those reservations all in the same phone call. Ka-Chow!

    I'm sure you have something special up your sleeve, but if you haven't made your way over to EPCOT recently, Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is certainly worth a try! If you're a fan of coasters, superheroes, catchy tunes and saving the galaxy, you'll have the time of your life on this thrilling new coaster!

    Happy planning,
