    Can you arrive at the park whenever you want to when you have a reservation?

    Hey Howdy Hey Jennifer, 

    Welcome to planDisney. Hot Diggity Dog! You are just days away from your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. This is the point of our countdowns where we are so excited, we can barely sleep. You have picked the most wonderful time of the yEAR to visit! The theme parks and Disney Resorts are all decked out in their holiday best with twinkling lights and festive colors and there is even more magic in the air. 

    The good news is Guests who have made a theme park reservation are guaranteed entry to the theme park they selected for that reservation, no matter what time they arrive. This means if you prefer to sleep in or you want to start your day with time at the pool, you can do that and then head over to the theme park later in the day. If you prefer to be one of the first Guests through the gates, that is fine too. All you need to do is check the Theme Park Hours on your My Disney Experience mobile app and set that early alarm. Resort Transportation begins running about one hour prior to park opening. 

    I hope this helps you finalize your plans for your upcoming visit. If I can help with anything further, please stop back and see me

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
