How to use a VPN to make Walt Disney World bookings from the UK.


How To Use a VPN To Make Walt Disney World Bookings

Us Brits cannot book select Walt Disney World experiences for our Walt Disney World holiday online. The reason for this we can only speculate. It could be due to GDPR and the transmission of data between the UK and the US, technical limitations, or simply could just be a choice. Sadly, the UK Walt Disney World website - although looks identical - doesn't have the same functionality as the US version in some areas. Frustratingly, Disney will not let us even opt into using the US version of the site to make certain bookings as they automatically redirect us back to the UK site. This means we are unable to easily book Savi's workshop, Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween parties, dessert parties, Walt Disney World annual passes, and more online.

You can call Disney's freephone number on 0800 028 0778 to book a few select experiences over the phone, but there can be a wait at busy times, and not everything can be booked.

Alternatively, to book online, you have to pretend you're in the USA. To do that, you need to use a VPN.

What Is A VPN & How Does It Work?


What a VPN does is route your network traffic through a server in another country to make it look like you're browsing from that country. You install a VPN (on mobile or desktop) choose a server in the USA, and then click connect. You can then go to the Walt Disney World US website and purchase whatever you'd like.

Which VPN Should I Use?


I don't have a horse any in of the VPN races, but I know it can be quite overwhelming as there are thousands and thousands of VPN services. Some people do just search Google or app stores for "Free VPNs" - but please be careful. I personally would never install or connect to any of the free VPNs - but many people do. Nothing is ever free, and if you're not paying money, you're paying with your data (I would be extra careful as you're making purchases) or making yourself vulnerable to scams. For some people, that's absolutely fine. They just want to get a couple of bookings done and don't care what data is taken. For others, they prefer to purchase and use a VPN from a reputable provider. You want to choose one that's in the business of making money, not in whatever the free VPNs are doing to monetise that free VPN service. ExpressVPN and Nord VPN are good options. If you're only using the VPN to make some Walt Disney World purchases the individual selling points of each VPN are largely inconsequential. ExpressVPN and Nord VPN all have 1-month plans and also come with a 30-day money-back guarantee for extra peace of mind.

I will continue to do my part and pass on the frustration of Brits unable to book certain experiences online, but until then we'll have to use VPN services to book the add-ons we want to enjoy on our next Walt Disney World holiday.
