    Hi! I have been trying for days to get a park reservation for Hollywood Studios and so far, no luck! What are the odds that this park will open up? If I show up before the park opens, is there the possibility of getting in?

    Hello, Marissa! I'm always happy to answer questions from a fellow resident of Pennsylvania! It looks like you have a springtime visit all set! You are going to have a great vacation!

    Disney's Hollywood Studios has become the Disney Park in highest demand! This is likely due to the draw created by Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, as well as Mickey and Minnie's Runaway Railway - the newest attraction to open at the Walt Disney World Resort.

    I encourage you to check the Disney Park Pass reservation calendar daily, if not multiple times a day, for the next several weeks. The Disney Parks will, at times, add additional capacity to the parks after the park is initially listed as unavailable. I saw this done for Disney's Hollywood Studios just before Christmastime. While I have no confirmation that this will be the case for when your visit is planned, it is worth checking frequently.

    From looking at the Disney Park Pass reservation calendar, I see that all other Disney Parks are currently available during the time of your visit! If you haven't done so already, make your Disney Park Pass reservations for other parks now! After Disney's Hollywood Studios, Magic Kingdom Park is usually the next to reach capacity when the parks are in high demand. And, don't forget, a day at Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park is a great way to beat the heat of the Florida sun! At the present time, this park doesn't require a reservation!

    Marissa, I'm excited to share that the Disney Parks recently announced they are extending their operating hours for dates this spring! This includes the time of your planned visit in May! I always use the Disney Parks operating hours calendar when planning my visits! Knowing the operating hours helps to guide my Disney-day! I hope you have a magical vacation!
