    If I purchased a ticket for a Saturday, but a park has availability open up on Friday, would I be able to cancel my Saturday reservation and schedule it for Friday - or am I locked in to using that ticket on Saturday?

    Hi Ethan,

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you for your question! 

    Ethan, it all depends on how many days you booked and when the ticket expires. If you only purchased a one day ticket, yes, you’d need to use it on the day you selected. That means you’d need to keep your current Disney Park Pass reservation that you have. 

    Now if you have a multi-day ticket, check out this page for the typical expiration timeline. For example, if you have a 2-day ticket, your ticket expires four days after your selected start date. So, any of those days leading up to the expiration, you’re able to use your 2-day ticket. You can use them consecutively or on different days. With a multi-day ticket, you have more flexibility with moving around your Disney Park Passes. 

    If you only have a 1-day ticket, you’ll need to stick with the Park reservation that you have. If you have a Park Hopper ticket, you can start in the Park you have a reservation for then hop over to another at 2:00 p.m. And if you don’t have a Park Hopper ticket, you can always adjust that with Guest Relations before you scan into the Theme Park. 

    One final tip: Try seeing if you can adjust your Saturday Park reservation to the Park you really want to go to. Sometimes, with just one person, you may be able to adjust because availability changes often!
