    If I have a park reservation and arrive at the park late in the day after it has reached capacity, will I still be granted admission.

    Welcome to planDisney, Kristina!

    I'm so glad you've found your way here with a question about your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort visit –– thanks so much for stopping by.  Are you getting excited yet? While the waiting always seems to last forever, I love planning my visits to The Most Magical Place on Earth way in advance.  That way, you have plenty of time to get all the details just right. Since it sounds like you've already made your Disney Park Pass reservations, I have a feeling that you have all those details well in hand and you're in for a Walt Disney World Resort visit that's practically perfect in every way!

    Here's the great news –– by making a Disney Park Pass reservation, you're guaranteeing yourself a spot in that particular park for the day. Even if you're visiting during busy times of the year when the park might reach capacity, you'll be able to come and go to that park as you please throughout the day, even if it's currently closed to Guests who are Park Hopping from another location.  If your ticket includes the Park Hopper Option and you're planning to head to a different Walt Disney World theme park after 2 PM, you won't need to make an additional theme park reservation, but you also won't be guaranteed entry into the park in the event that it's reached the capacity limit.  For that reason, I recommend giving the Park Hopping Capacity Line a call at (407) 560-5000 before heading to the next park –– that way, you won't have to waste time and risk the frustration of finding out that the park is full once you arrive.

    Thanks so much for visiting planDisney, Kristina.  I hope this helped to answer your question, but please don't hesitate to visit us again if you think of something new –– we're always here to lend a helping hand as you plan your next Walt Disney World Resort visit.
