    When do you reserve the day you want to go a certain park?

    Hi there, Robert,

    I'm glad to see ya back here at planDisney! I hope your plans for your dad's magical birthday celebration at Walt Disney World Resort are going well.

    Robert, as soon as you purchase your theme park admission, you can make your Theme Park Reservations. Park capacity is limited and reservations are required to enter your first park of the day.  Now, you can make your Theme Park Reservations through your My Disney Experience on the Walt Disney World website or through the My Disney Experience mobile app

    On the website, simply select “Theme Park Reservations” and then select “Make or Modify Theme Park Reservations.” On the next page, simply follow the prompts to view the calendar indicating which parks are available each day during your stay, and then select among the available parks you would like to visit.

    On the My Disney Experience mobile app, simply select the “+” symbol on the menu at the bottom of the screen, then select “Make or Modify Park Reservations,” which will take you to the mobile version of the Walt Disney World website. Just scroll down and follow the prompts to select the first park you wish to visit each day. It’s as simple as that!

    Now, Robert, since the availability for each park is limited, there is a chance that the first park you desire for each day of your visit will not be available. Hakuna Matata, no worries! If you have Park Hopper option tickets, you can visit your desired park after park hopping hours begin. You will need to select an alternate park for that day and visit it prior to visiting the second park. If you have a Standard Theme Park ticket, just keep an eye on the theme park availability calendar and if your desired park becomes available, you can modify your reservations using the same process you used to make your original reservations. 

    I hope this is helpful, Robert. Please feel free to stop back by with any additional questions you may have about your upcoming visit - we are here to help! You will be making magical memories in no time!

    T-T-F-N! Ta-ta for now,

A Land and Sea vacation combining an action-packed Walt Disney World Resort visit and a relaxing Disney Cruise Line voyage is my favorite way to do Disney.
