    I made park reservation for the wrong day. My husband’s birthday is 03/35. I made reservations for magic kingdom 03/24. I went to switch the days and it won’t let me and now the trip I’ve been planning as a surprise for him and my kids (first visit) ruined

    Welcome to planDisney, Crystal!

    I'm sorry to hear you made an error when making your Disney Park Pass reservations. No worries!  At Walt Disney World Resort, Guests are welcome to celebrate birthdays and other special occasions any day of the year, and that includes Very Merry Unbirthdays as well!

    If your schedule allows, my recommendation would be to stick with your plans to visit Magic Kingdom Park on the date you currently hold reservations for. Your family will be so excited to enjoy all the magic of the 50th Anniversary Celebration, no matter the date! Be sure to stop by Guest Relations and pick up a complimentary Happy Birthday button for your husband as well as some 1st Visit buttons for your kids. After all the excitement of Magic Kingdom Park, spend the day of your husband's birthday enjoying a leisurely breakfast, perhaps some time relaxing by the pool or visiting Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park (no reservations required), followed by a special dinner at one of the many restaurants at Disney Springs or Disney Resorts Collection hotels. Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera and Steakhouse 71 are just two of many amazing dining locations that will be perfect for celebrating his special day. You can even add on a Mickey Mouse Celebration Cake at select locations when making your reservation!

    If you will only be able to visit Walt Disney World Resort on the day of your husband's birthday, I would recommend adding the Park Hopper Option to your ticket, which will help you get even more magic from your day. Make a Disney Park Pass reservation at one of the other theme parks, and then hop over to Magic Kingdom Park when park hopping hours begin at 2:00 pm. I'm sure your husband would enjoy sampling all the delicious bites and sips at the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival, while your kids would love shrinking down to mouse-size to enjoy Remy's Ratatouille Adventure and visiting Arendelle and Queen Elsa's ice palace at Frozen Ever After. Be sure to check the theme park availability calendar before canceling your current reservations. With spring break season now upon us, some dates have limited reservation availability.

    I'm wishing your family a magical vacation and your husband a very Happy Birthday! No matter which day or theme park you choose to visit, I'm sure you will have a fantastic time making wonderful memories together. And that is certainly something to celebrate.
