    How quickly do I know if my reservation is successful when I book online?

    Welcome to planDisney, Mark!

    Thanks for stopping by with your question for us.

    It's always such a thrill to make a new reservation at Walt Disney World Resort! Whether you're planning on visiting during the summer months and making a splash at the Disney Resort hotel pools, or you're planning on coming during the holiday season when smiling Mickey-shaped wreaths welcome Guests to the magic, you're sure to have the best time!

    Mark, you should receive a confirmation email for any type of reservation you make with Walt Disney World Resort. This email is tied to your My Disney Experience account, as well. Usually, this email comes relatively quickly; for instance, I just made a resort reservation half an honor ago and received my confirmation email within 10 minutes. However, if you've recently made a Resort hotel reservation, it could take up to 24 hours to appear online. Also, sometimes the email hides in other folders, so try checking your Spam and Promotional folders to ensure it hasn't made its way there. 

    If you did not receive a confirmation email, we could check if your reservation is linked to your My Disney Experience account. To do this, please open up your My Disney Experience Mobile App. Next, tap the three horizontal lines on the bottom right and select Future Plans. Any Resort hotel reservations, Park Pass reservations, and dining reservations should be listed here. 

    If you are still waiting to see your reservation in your My Disney Experience account and have yet to receive an email confirmation, I recommend calling Disney Resort Hotel Reservations and speaking with a friendly Cast Member who can look into your account to help you.

    I'll be sending extra pixie dust in the hope you're able to find your reservation quickly, Mark. We can't wait to welcome you to the magic!
