    I see two different versions of park reservation availability for June 22-26 one is green and one is orange with few parks available

     Hello, Amy. I'm so glad you've stopped by planDisney with your question. I've been visiting at least once a month since Walt Disney World reopened last summer so I have a lot of experience with the park pass reservation system and the availability calendar. 

    So the Walt Disney World Theme Park availability calendar is actually broken down into three categories - Guests with Theme Park Tickets only, Guests staying at select resort hotels and Walt Disney World Annual Passholders. You want to make sure you are viewing the calendar that most pertains to you because they all have different availability. So I actually took a look at the availability for June 22 - June 26th and can see what you are saying. The availability for Guests with tickets and Guests staying at select resort hotels is orange due to there being only some parks available to make a park pass reservation at this time. If you select the Walt Disney World Annual Passholder availability calendar, that is currently showing all green because their availability has not yet filled up. When you go to make park pass reservations, you don't have to worry about selecting which calendar applies to you. It will automatically pull from the calendar that your Walt Disney World vacation represents via your MyDisneyExperience account. 

    If there are some parks that are not available and you have your heart set on visiting them, I'd suggest upgrading your tickets to include the park hopper option. Park hopping is where you are able to visit multiple Walt Disney World Theme Parks in one day. Park hopping just returned to us at the start of this year and does look a little bit different than it did before. If you'd like to park hop, you must have standard theme park admission with the park hopper option. Then you'll need to make a park pass reservation for the first theme park you'd like to visit each day. On that day, you'll need to scan in and enter the theme park with the park pass reservation before continuing on to other parks later in the day. There is no need to make additional park pass reservations each day - just the initial one. Park hopping hours now start at 2:00 p.m. and last until each park closes in the evenings. Park hopping is a great way to get some must-do attractions in at theme parks that you may not be able to snag a park pass reservation for. 

    Amy, I hope this helps clear up any confusion you might have regarding the availability calendar. If you have any other questions, please feel free to come back and ask me. I'm here to help!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
