Book your Advance Park Reservations ASAP!
Park Capacity is real and it is enforced! Unfortunately, guests learned the hard way that having park tickets and hotel reservations does not guarantee park entrance. These past few weeks and the next few weeks to come will be extremely busy and Disney is maintaining their capacity levels.
It is very simple to avoid this disappointment. Once you are booked and you have linked your reservations and tickets to your My Disney Experience account, simply click on "Make a Reservation", select your party, date, and park. It is that simple and takes less than a minute to book! You can now sit back and relax knowing that you have a spot reserved to enter the parks during your visit.
If you haven't booked yet, check the park availability calendar. If all of the days are green, then all of the parks are available. If you see a day is yellow, click on it to see which parks are still available. If you see a grey day, that means that all four theme parks are booked. Can this change? Possibly, guests change plans all of the time and availability pops back into the system. If a park is unavailable, stalk the website daily and don't delay if you find availability.
Which parks fill up first? The hardest park to book during peak times is Hollywood Studios. The new Star Wars Land is amazing-and definitely a must see and a repeat experience for most. Parks reached capacity during holiday weeks and are full now due to Spring Break. However, the Magic Kingdom wins the award for reaching capacity months in advance. Magic Kingdom park reservations reached capacity on October 1, 2021 months ago! The Magic Kingdom's 50th Celebration is a highly anticipated event and will unlikely become available. You are definitely, welcome to keep trying, but, most of us that have this day booked are unlikely to let it go!
