    PLEASE HELP! We planned a vacation for our kids birthday with other family and we all booked together but now one of the families in our parties is stuck going to a different park. We are trying to figure this out as we are all driving up together!

    Hi there Luiza, and welcome to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by with your question. Let's see what we can do to fix this little stitch in your plans. 

    On behalf of my fellow panelists and me, we would like to wish your Mouseketeer a very merry birthday! At this time, the Availability Calendar is showing all theme parks booked solid for your travel date, but I have a few ideas that might help. 

    First, you could monitor the Availability Calendar for openings; you might be lucky enough to catch a cancelation. Alternatively, EPCOT is still taking reservations for all Guests the weekend of March 27th and 28th, so if both families want to visit this theme park, you could move your dates slightly to visit together. 

    Another idea is to upgrade your tickets to include the Park Hopper option. Park Hopping is currently available, pending availability, after 2:00 PM. You would still have to start your day in different theme parks but could meet up to spend the afternoon and evening together. To see which parks are accepting Guests for hopping, check the My Disney Experience Mobile App or call (407) 560-5000.

    Finally, if each family would like to maintain their current theme park reservations, you could spend the day separately, but reunite at Disney Springs for a celebratory dinner. T-REX™ provides an immersive, theme park-like experience that would be fun for any junior paleontologists in your crew. Stop by Amorette's Patisserie or Sprinkles for a practically perfect birthday treat, and let the kids select a birthday souvenEAR at World of Disney®

    I hope you find something that works for you, Luiza. Best wishes planning your special day, and if there is anything we can help with in the future, please keep us in mind. 

    Have a magical day!
