    We are arriving April 1, 2022. We have annual passes. We are not sure if we will get to Boardwalk resort in time to check in and visit a park, it will be after 2pm. Should we make a reservation for that day?

    Welcome, Mary Lou, to the magical world of planDisney!

    We are here to help answer all of your Walt Disney World vacation planning questions, so you can spend your stay making everlasting memories with your family! Disney's BoardWalk Inn is such a fun place to stay, always bursting with energy and activities galore! I love the variety of options at this Disney Resort Hotel. Whether I want to extend my night into the wee hours of the morning with an evening at Jellyrolls or channel my inner Rapunzel and peruse the art collection at Wyland Galleries of Florida, one can never get bored at Disney's BoardWalk Inn!

    I see the timing dilemma during your upcoming stay, but not to worry, I think there is a pretty easy fix! Since you do need a park pass reservation to enter any park no matter the time of day, I'd recommend making a park reservation for the park of your choice. Even if you arrive after 2 p.m., you'll need a park reservation to enter. If you arrive ahead of schedule, you know you're covered and can enjoy the magic all night long! If you run a little behind, you still have quite a few hours to enjoy the parks and your reservation ensures that you have the opportunity to do so. Traveling can be tricky and unpredictable, so if you end up running well behind and won't make it to the park before close, you can simply cancel your reservation.

    Trips to Walt Disney World Resort are all about maximizing the magic! Securing that park reservation does just that for you and your party! I do hope your schedule runs as smoothly as the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and allows you to spend a little extra time at the parks!
