    Is there a way to get notifications for cancellations? The park we want to visit has no available reservations but I would like to know if spots become available.

    Hi there, Troilyn. Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. June is such a great month to visit Walt Disney World, I know you are going to have a great time. 

    At this time, Troilyn there isn't a way for you to be notified when park pass availability opens up. My best advice is to be diligent about checking back. I've had great luck grabbing a park pass reservation for something that wasn't available by checking quite a bit throughout the day and then at off times too. Sometimes I've even set my alarm for late at night or super early in the morning and I've been able to find some availability that way. The good news is that the calendar is always updating. As Guests change their itinerary or cancel a trip altogether, this is reflected immediately in the availability. I also know that sometimes Disney will open up a bunch of spots at certain parks as it gets closer to that calendar date. So it's really true when I say to keep checking back. 

    If you aren't able to secure a park pass reservation for the theme park you'd really like to visit, I'd consider upgrading your tickets to include the park hopper option. Park hopping is where you can visit more than one Walt Disney World Theme Park in a single day. Park hopping has just recently returned to us, at the start of this year, and there are some new rules and regulations. 

    Here's how park hopping is currently working:
    • Guests wishing to park hop must have standard theme park admission with the park hopper option
    • Guests wishing to park hop must make park pass reservation for an initial theme park to visit each day
    • Guests wishing to park hop must scan in and enter the theme park with the park pass reservation as a way to "activate" the park hopper feature before continuing on to other theme parks
    • Guests are not required to make additional park pass reservations each day to park hop - just that initial one
    • Park hopping hours now start at 2:00 p.m. and last until each park closes
    • Complimentary park-to-park bus transportation is currently being provided
    So say you're able to get a park pass reservation for Epcot but you really want to visit Disney's Hollywood Studios, you could visit Epcot and enjoy all it has to offer until around 1:30 and then head over to Disney's Hollywood Studios for the rest of the day. I think you would be impressed with just how much you can cross off of your must-do list from 2:00 p.m. on. Park hopping is actually my favorite way to spend a Disney day. 

    I hope you are able to snag a park pass reservation for what you are really wanting. If not, keep in mind the park hopper option. It really is a great alternative. If you have any other questions before your trip, please feel free to come back and ask me. I'm happy to help!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
