    am planning a disney only trip for next year(my birthday so the dates are set) however we cant book until much later in the year, my worry is what happens if after booking we cant get reservations for the parks due to the capacity limits.

    Hello Elaine!

    The Walt Disney World Resort is the perfect place to celebrate birthdays for kids and adults of all ages! On my last big birthday that ended in a zero, I knew I wanted to spend it in my favorite place, Magic Kingdom!

    It looks like you are coming from the United Kingdom, and I know there is so much that is still unknown about international travel restrictions and when our friends from the UK will be able to join us again at the Walt Disney World Resort. What I would recommend is that you use Disney’s Theme Park Availability Calendar to check theme park availability before you book your vacation. This would give you an idea if you would be able to make a Disney Park Pass Reservation for the parks you would like to visit. If you see that there is availability, I would book your trip and then immediately link your reservations and ticket numbers so that you can make your Theme Park Pass Reservations right away. I hope this process wouldn’t take more than a few days and park availability shouldn’t change that much in those few days unless you are traveling at a very busy time of year such as the holidays or the United States spring break season.

    I hope this helps alleviate some of your concerns, and you have a solid plan for moving forward. Sending my very best early birthday wishes to you, Elaine!
