    I just booked January 2025 trip with 5 day park passes. Do I need to book which park we are visiting on what day? if so where do I do this?

    Hiya Kristy!

    Welcome to planDisney! It's lovely to see you here ready to start planning for your trip next year! I think the anticipation of a trip is sometimes one of the best parts of a vacation. 

    Kristy, there is a very good chance that you do not need to make theme park reservations for your upcoming trip. However, it depends on the type of ticket that you purchased. If you purchased a 5-day date-based ticket then you do NOT need to make theme park reservations. These are standard tickets that when you purchased them involved selecting a period of use. If you had to pick a start date for your tickets then you are set! You can visit whichever Park you like when you like during your trip. This is fabulous as sometimes it's great to just decide last minute which Park to visit based on the weather, mood, or energy level. Sometimes, I want to visit a specific Park because I want to enjoy a ride again. 

    For example, I recently had a chance to enjoy Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind twice in one day by purchasing an Individual Lightning Lane and then securing a spot on the Virtual Queue. My family was able to accomplish this by having one person with their account work to get the Individual Lightning Lane at 7 AM, which is a benefit for Walt Disney World Resort Guests. Then another person used their account to grab a spot on the Virtual Queue. The Virtual Queue opens at 7 AM as well and since we had different accounts that were linked through the Family & Friends List, we were able to get two opportunities for the whole family to enjoy this incredible ride. The next day I had a chance again to do the same thing and was tempted to do so as this roller coaster is just amazing.  I am not a fan of roller coasters but the immersive theming and surprise musical track that plays during this ride each time makes it a must-do for me every trip! 

    If you have any more questions feel free to let us know! Happy Planning!
