    Planning a last minute trip. If a park appears to be sold out for a 1 day ticket is there a way to get on a waiting list or will a park hopper ticket allow admission?

    Hi Erica! Welcome to planDisney!

    I love that you are trying to take advantage of a day at the Walt Disney World Resort! There have been a couple of times when I was just passing through the Orlando area and only had one day to spare, but I made sure to squeeze as much magic out of that one day as I could. Even if I didn't have theme park tickets, I had a blast spending a day at Disney Springs. There are so many options!

    Unfortunately, there is not currently a waitlist for getting Disney Park Pass reservations. I suggest you keep checking for reservations to open for the day you want to visit. While a Walt Disney World Park Hopper Option ticket is a great way to get into multiple theme parks in one day, you still have to have a Disney Park Pass reservation for the first theme park of the day, so it wouldn't help you get into the theme parks without that initial reservation also in place.

    If you find that you can't get into any of the theme parks that day, I suggest a day at Disney Springs for lots of fun! There is a lot to do there including Splitsville Luxury Lanes, shopping, dining, entertainment, and more! You could also consider Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park for the day, or if you are a golfer, check out one of the golf courses or play a round of miniature golf. You may find a new favorite way to spend the day!

    I hope you have a wonderful vacation, Erica! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
