    If we book our resort and buy our tickets, how soon should we select what parks we want to go to? Can we do that now? What if we want to change?

    Hiya Evan,

    Welcome back to planDisney. I love that you are in planning mode as the only thing better than being at Walt Disney World Resort is planning for your next visit! 

    It sounds like you have tackled some of the biggest decisions now that you have selected your vacation dates and your Disney Resorts Collection hotel. Way to go! Now that you have purchased your theme park admission tickets, you can proceed with making a theme park reservation for each day you have an admission ticket. It sounds like you may have already created your My Disney Experience account but if not, you will want to complete that step next. You will also want to create your friends and family list and make sure that all of your reservations and tickets are linked to your account. This mouseketool will be handy to keep all your plans organized and right at your fingertips. 

    Once all of these steps have been completed, you are ready to make your theme park reservations. While you still have a number of months before your magical adventure, I prefer to select which theme park we will visit each day and make those reservations as early as possible. As long as there is still availability, you are free to change the theme park reservation all the way up until that day. One tip to keep in mind - if you plan on making advanced dining reservations, you may want to have your theme park selections reserved no less than sixty days before your arrival. This is because your dining reservation window opens at that time and most guests prefer to choose their dining preferences based on which theme park they will be at. If you prefer to set your theme park choice based off the dining reservation you obtain, you can wait until after your dining plans are set. Just remember, there is always a chance that a theme park will no longer have availability the longer you wait. 

    I hope this helps with your planning. If I can lend a hand with any additional questions, please stop back and see me
