    I have purchased my tickets but the park isn't accepting new reservations for the day we can attend what do I do?

    Welcome, Andrea, to planDisney

    Planning a trip to Walt Disney World does have that last little wrinkle before all of your plans are in place. It's the theme park reservation. I always recommend that before you purchase theme park tickets, check the theme park availability calendar and make sure your days are still open at the park you want to visit. Since we've already moved beyond that point, let's see what we can do to help.

    I see your arrival date is June 13th, and a quick check of the calendar does show availability at EPCOT as of this moment. The first thing I recommend is checking that calendar frequently. I have been able to make a theme park reservation last minute by just checking and refreshing that availability page. 

    Another option is to see if there's any wiggle room in your vacation plans. If you can change your theme park day at all, I see that there is also availability that week for Disney's Animal Kingdom. 

    One other thing I can recommend is adding the park hopper option to your theme park tickets. With this option, you can make a reservation at whatever park is currently available. You do have to go there to scan in, but once you've done that, after 2 PM, you can park hop to another park, even if there were no reservations available when you tried to book. So you could reserve EPCOT and then hop to Magic Kingdom Park or Disney's Hollywood Studios at 2 PM.

    Best advice - keep trying! You may find that reservation you are hoping to get.
