    Hello! I just purchased park tickets for next week hoping to get theme park reservations for Magic Kingdom because I saw that it was available on the reservations calendar. However when I went to reserve my reservation it wasnt an option! What can be done?

    Hi Ilan,

    Thank you for stopping by planDisney with your question about theme park reservations for your upcoming visit next week.  I am happy to help you sort out your options, so let's get started!

    Since you didn't mention which type of admission you have purchased, I can give you a couple of scenarios for different types of tickets.  You are correct, for general date-based theme park tickets, the theme park reservation calendar shows availability for all parks all days next week.  Woo Hoo!  It's possible that Stitch had a glitch and all you need to do is restart your computer and double check that you have all of your tickets linked correctly and your ability to make theme park reservations will automagically appear for you.

    If you have purchased a 1-day ticket to Magic Kingdom for a specific date, then a theme park reservation is automagically made for you.  How nice is that?  If this is the case, all you need to do is start planning what attraction you want to visit first!

    Now, if you have purchased a Pixie Dust Pass, you will notice from this theme park availability calendar for Annual Passholders that some days are "blackout days" for Magic Kingdom for the Pixie Dust Pass.  If that is the case, you can choose a day that isn't a Saturday or Sunday to visit Magic Kingdom.

    If you have purchased the 4-Day, 4-Park Magic Ticket then you are in luck.  These wonderful tickets do not require a theme park reservation in order to use them!  As long as the theme park isn't at capacity, you can simply go to the park and scan into it.  I haven't heard of any of the theme parks hitting capacity lately, but I still advise being at the theme parks at least 30 minutes prior to its posted opening in order to enter when you are eligible and to make the most of your Disney day.  It's important to know that these tickets offer one admission to each of the 4 theme parks, and you can only visit one theme park per day (no Park Hopping).  However, you are able to leave and then return to the same theme park on the same day if you like.

     I hope this information helps you with your vacation plans!  If you have any more questions, please come back and visit us here at planDisney.  We are always excited to help you plan your next Magical adventure.

    See Ya Real Soon,
