    Thank you for all you’re doing, DPMP! When park reservations open on Monday, will I be able to split my 8-day park ticket among two resort reservations for August and October? Trying to mitigate risk of availability as things and plans change. Thank you!

    Hi Amy!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm so happy to hear you have not one but TWO Walt Disney World vacations on the horizon. Even better: you already have theme park tickets purchased, so let the final planning begin!

    Based on the fact that you mentioned June 22, I am assuming you have a Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservation. You are correct that as long as you have both a Resort Hotel booking and valid theme park tickets, you will be able to make reservations using the new Disney Park Pass system on that date. Beginning June 26, Annual Passholders without a Resort Hotel reservation will be able to make their theme park reservations, followed by all other existing ticket holders on June 28th.

    My prediction is that you will have no issues making your plans for your August trip. However, Disney may not treat your 8-day park ticket as a valid ticket for the October vacation since those multi-day tickets have to be used within the time frame listed and will expire a certain number of days after first use. That said, I would absolutely try and make reservations on the Disney Park Pass system for both vacations and then deal with the ticket situation after the fact. Perhaps some pixie dust will fly and you can later sort out how best to utilize those tickets with a Cast Member.  

    Since you may want to be ready to roll at 7:00 A.M. EST when the new Disney Park Pass system launches, make sure you have all your ducks in a row in advance. (Yes, Donald Duck, that is a nod to Huey, Dewey and Louie, and you are still Number 1!) You will need a My Disney Experience account and have your valid theme park tickets linked to your My Disney Experience account. You will also want to link both of your Disney Resort Hotel reservations in your My Disney Experience account. Finally, you want to link your park tickets together with family and friends to coordinate theme park entries at the same time.

    Amy, just keep swimming over to the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you need any help planning. Hope you have two amazing, magical vacations!
