    Kambria from CA Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    trying to get 1 day tix but the day we want is not available at this time. I know sometimes you can grab last-minute reservations. But can I purchase tickets without setting a reservation date? Or do I need to purchase and cancel and hope it opens up?

    Greetings, Kambria, and welcome to planDisney!

    I’ll be happy to help answer your question, let’s begin! Hakuna Matata…it means no worries! Kambria, you don’t need to purchase your theme park tickets before knowing if a theme park reservation is available. I recommend having your credit card, or Disney Gift Card, handy so that you can quickly purchase your tickets and schedule your theme park reservations if the Availability opens up. 

    My fellow panelist, Tiffanie, suggests booking a stay at a Disney Resort Hotel. As a resort Guest, you will have access to a different availability calendar, so you might be able to pick up theme park tickets and a theme park reservation that way.

    Kambria, I hope this helps answer your question. Please be sure to let us know if there’s anything else we can help you with. I can’t wait for you to finalize your visit!
