    Why are there no park reservations on January 17, 2024

    Hey there, Susan! Thanks for stopping by planDisney. You'll arrive at the Most Magical Place on Earth soon, so let's discuss theme park reservations. Recent changes have made the process of gaining admission a bit different, so like Peter Pan would crow, "Here we gooooo!"

    You no longer need to make theme park reservations if you have a date-based admission ticket. You can enter any park if you have a valid ticket for that date. You'll know if you have a date-based ticket if you chose a start date for your ticket when you bought it. If that's the ticket you purchased, that might explain why you aren't seeing a way to make a reservation.

    I checked the current reservation calendar and saw availability all week for guests with non-date-based tickets. For example, I have an Annual Pass, so my admission is not based on specific dates. In my case, I DO need to make theme park reservations on most days. When I checked the calendar, I could make a reservation for any of the four theme parks every day next week, so park reservations are currently available on January 17 for guests who need them. 

    My guess is that you don't see a way to make a reservation because you don't need to make one. If you're signed in to your My Disney Experience account, the system will consider your ticket type when showing you the availability calendar. If you still need help, please call Existing Tickets so they can troubleshoot with you once they know your type of admission ticket.

    Susan, I hope your upcoming visit is filled with magic and pixie dust. Please stop by planDisney anytime. We're at the second star to the right, straight on till morning!

    Magic awaits,
