    i have uk tickets 14 days from 18 days, they are activated with a first reservation on the 22 December. I cannot park reserve after 2 Jan which means i have lost 5 days. I know the system is stopping but that is from the 9th not the 3rd so whats happened?

    Welcome to planDisney, Marcus. I bet your household is brimming with excitement with a festive Walt Disney World adventure on the horizon!

    Magic Tickets are date-based, and the 18-day eligibility window begins on the date you selected at purchase rather than your first Theme Park Reservation date. Assuming the date you selected was 22 December 2023, you are quite right that you require Theme Park Reservations to access the Parks. The good news is that I can see full availability for 2024. 

    As you have already linked your tickets in My Disney Experience, I recommend double-checking your current Theme Park Reservations in your My Disney Experience to ensure you haven't already booked 14 separate dates during your 18-day eligibility window. You can always cancel any reservations you don't need. If you have checked this but still cannot make additional bookings through My Disney Experience, you can speak with one of our helpful Disney experts. Alternatively, you can use the 'Chat with Us' function within the My Disney Experience app to receive an immediate response and assistance from a Cast Member.

    I hope this information helps, Marcus and that you enjoy a wonderful time at Walt Disney World. I highly recommend EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays and its Candlelight Processional, which shares the Christmas story in the most stunning way.
