    When can I make reservations after purchasing tickets?


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    I am assuming that by making reservations, you are referring to making theme park reservations using the Disney Park Pass system. The great news is that you can make those reservations as soon as you purchase your tickets. In fact, I encourage it!

    What is the benefit of making your theme park reservations right away?
    You lock in a park for each day. If you are doing this far in advance of your trip, that may not seem like it would matter much, as all four parks are likely available at the time of purchase. But as the dates of your trip approach, some of the parks may run out of room. You could get locked out of the park that you wanted to visit that day. 

    But what if I change my mind on what parks I want to visit on specific days?
    No problem! You can always change your park plans, assuming that the park you want to switch to has availability. Let me share with you the steps you would follow to make a change. 

    Step 1:  If you are planning to change a reservation to a different park, first confirm that the park you want to switch to has availability. Just check the Disney Park Pass Availability Calendar for your respective dates. 

    Step 2: Go to your My Disney Experience account and select "My Plans". You can find this at the top right of the Walt Disney World website menu. Find the reservation that you want to change and click on "View Details". On the next page, you will want to click on "Cancel This Reservation", selecting all the guests for whom you wish to cancel. 

    Step 3: Make the updated theme park reservation, as you did before, with your new park selection.

    So feel free to send me any follow-up questions, and I am glad to help further.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
