    purchased park hopper tickets for thanksgiving week. scheduled my dining reservations as well including ones we were planning on hopping to for dinner. I noticed today park reservations are at capacity for MK on 22nd. does that mean i have to cancel?

    Heigh-Ho Shanna,

    Visiting Walt Disney World, during the holidays, is a magical time to visit and can be a busy time to visit. Guests, with the Park Hopper option, need to stay in the know about which parks are at capacity so they know what is available to them throughout their vacation. Between now and the time of your arrival, stay vigilant by checking the Theme Park Reservation Availability Calendar. The calendar can change even up to the day of November 22nd. Typically, we advise Guests not to make Advanced Dining Reservations at your park hopping park because it does not guarantee you entry into the park. Thus, if the park hits capacity, you lose out on the reservation and financially by ensuing a less than 24-hr cancellation fee. If Magic Kingdom Park becomes available and the dining reservation is important, I recommend changing your Disney Park Pass reservation to Magic Kingdom Park. Otherwise, I would recommend finding a dining reservation at one of the Walt Disney World Resort hotels, Disney Springs or off-property. There are many fine dining locations around the resort that are a short rideshare ride away. 

    With a little bit of Faith, Trust and Pixie Dust all will work out and your visit will be filled with many magical and memorable moments.

    Have a Practically Perfect Day,
