    Meena from ME Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    Please help. We booked 4 day tickets in feb (20th to 24th) but you dont have any reservation tickets available at all apart from epcot. We booked via costco and this system of needed both was not clear at all.

    Welcome to planDisney, Meena.

    Oh, bother! I'm so sorry that you're having trouble getting Theme Park reservations at the park(s) you'd like to visit. Due to President's Day Weekend, next week is particularly busy at Walt Disney World and it looks like everything apart from EPCOT is at capacity. I realize that must be very disheartening and stressful. 

    Here's what I'd recommend you do: First, I would make reservations for EPCOT while there is still availability. That way you can make sure you're able to visit at least one Theme Park during your visit. Second, I would keep checking the Theme Park Reservation Availability Calendar. Check it multiple times a day. If you wake up in the night, check it again. People change their plans all the time. You might find that another Theme Park suddenly has availability. If that happens, quickly cancel your EPCOT reservation and make a new reservation at the available Theme Park. You can do this really easily by signing into your My Disney Experience account, clicking on "My Plans," and scrolling down until you see your Theme Park reservation. Click "View Details" and then "Cancel This Reservation." Make sure you immediately book your new reservation before someone else takes it.

    If all else fails, you can always upgrade your tickets to the Park Hopper Option. This would allow you to visit EPCOT in the morning, but then magically hop to another Theme Park of your choice after 2:00 p.m. (subject to availability). There are rare instances when your second Theme Park is so full that they won't allow any more people, even with the Park Hopper option. If that were to happen, they would notify you through your My Disney Experience app. 

    If you'd like to add the Park Hopper Option, then open your My Disney Experience app, tap the icon with three lines in the bottom right corner. Tap "Tickets and Passes" and then tap on your ticket to upgrade. If you have any problems doing this, I'd recommend calling to speak to a friendly Cast Member. You can also upgrade your tickets at Guest Relations on the day of your visit.

    Meena, let me reiterate how sorry I am that you're not finding availability at so many Theme Parks. This is certainly not the most magical way to anticipate your trip. But as Dory tells us, "When life gets you down, you know what you gotta do? Just keep swimming." I hope and trust that you'll have a magical time whatever happens. 

    There's plenty to do at EPCOT, right now. I don't think I would ever get bored of riding Remy's Ratatouille Adventure. I recently had the pleasure of experiencing Soarin' Around the World too. I think I could live on that attraction. My planDisney friends and I recently watched Harmonious together and it was enchanting. Here's a tip: watch it from the Japan or Italy pavilion for good views. Did you know that Disney Skyliner stops right outside of EPCOT? I'd encourage you to take a ride on it. It's really fun and you get to see Walt Disney World from up above. 

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney, Meena.
