    If I booked a package plan for a Disney resort that includes free admission to one park per day of my stay, do I have to book with the parks I want to go to in advance?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to planDisney. We're so happy you stopped by and even happier to hear you're planning a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort! There's no place I'd rather be, that's for sure.

     While there is not currently a Walt Disney World Resort Vacation Package that includes free admission to the theme parks, it IS possible to book a vacation package that includes a Disney Resort hotel stay and 1 Park Per Day Theme Park Tickets. If you book your vacation package with date-based tickets, you will not need to make Theme Park Reservations ahead of time. Rather, you can decide what park you want to visit even up to the day of! It's important to note that if you visit after July 24, 2024 and you'd like to purchase Lightning Lane Multi Pass for select days or the length of your stay, you can make those purchases up to 7 days in advance of your Disney Resort hotel stay. When you purchase Lightning Lane Multi Pass, you will need to select what park and what date you'll be using the pass for.

     I'm a big fan of the Disney Resorts Collection. When you stay at a Disney Resort hotel, you're immersed in the magic of Disney storytelling even after you've left the theme parks! There's a Disney Resort hotel perfect for every style and budget. Some of my family's favorites from the Disney Resorts Collection include Disney's Art of Animation Resort, Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort, Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside, Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, and Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.

     I hope this was helpful. Please let us know if you have any other questions about your Walt Disney World Resort vacation! We'd love to help you plan a magical stay.
