    Rhonda from ME Asked

    We will be arriving after 3:00 p.m. Now that park hopping starts at 2:00, will our park reservation still hold a spot for us to get into the park we have a reservation for no matter how late we arrive?

    Hi there, Rhonda! I'm so glad you've stopped by planDisney with your question. Are you just getting so excited for your Walt Disney World vacation? It's in just a few weeks, I bet the countdown is on. 

    I think you will be happy to know, Rhonda, that your park pass reservation secures you a spot at that particular Walt Disney World Theme Park all day. You can arrive whenever you'd like and will be able to enter - even after park hopping has begun. You can also visit the theme park, leave and come back later in the day if you choose. There is a lot of flexibility in how you'd like to plan your day. 

    During your vacation to Walt Disney World later this month, I hope you have plans to stop by Epcot to experience the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival that is taking place right now. It's so fun walking around the park looking at all of the beautiful and creative topiaries that are on display. Plus, who wouldn't want to check out the outdoor kitchens that have popped up all over the theme park adding to the festivities. If you like snacks, check out the foodie festival guide that the Disney Parks Blog put out. The article breaks down all of the do not miss items at the festival this year. If you ask me, my first stop would be the Bauernmarkt: Farmer's Market near Germany. My favorites there are the toasted pretzel bread with black forest ham and melted Gruyere cheese and the warm cheese strudel with mixed berries. Both are delicious and a perfect combination since one is salty and one is sweet! 

    Rhonda, I know it has got to put your mind at ease knowing you'll have no trouble visiting the Walt Disney World theme park with your park pass reservation on the day of your arrival. If you have any other questions before your trip, please come back and ask me. I'm happy to help.

    Have fun!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
