    Are the blackout days listed only applying to annual passes? I'm looking a park hopper options during the holiday season and reading those make me feel uneasy to do any advance purchase.

    Hi, Tammy!

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Planning your Walt Disney World vacation includes so many decisions, so it's good that you are considering all options prior to purchasing,

    Regarding Theme Park Tickets, look closely at the main page where tickets may be purchased online. It can be confusing when you read details listed at the bottom of the page, so your question is a great one! If you are looking at a regular theme park ticket, and plan to add the Park Hopper Option, blockout dates will not apply to you.

    Certain Annual Passes, such as my Disney Vacation Club Disney Gold Pass, as well as limited time offer 4-Park Magic Ticket for All Guests, and some Florida resident tickets, come with blockout dates, including dates over Christmas, New Year's and Easter. The blockout dates you see listed on the ticket purchase page apply to Florida Resident 3-Day and 4-Day Tickets. I can understand how reading that fine print might startle you, so I am glad that you asked for clarification.

    We always purchase our multi-day tickets and Annual Passes directly from Disney, making adding those tickets to My Disney Experience super-easy. As soon as your purchase is complete, you'll receive a confirmation that includes a number you can then add to your own My Disney Experience account. One you have done so, you can begin enjoying all of the perks of your ticket, including arranging your FastPass+ plans for your upcoming trip.

    Send more questions as you think of them, Tammy; we love to help!
