    I am coming for 3 date based tickets in February. Do I require a reservation? I tried to make one, but I don’t think I need one. Also, I tried to purchase genie pass, but it said I wasn’t eligible

    Hi, Faith, and welcome to planDisney! It sounds like you've been doing a bit of research and you know a thing or two about how to plan for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation! My fellow panelists and I are here for any and all questions you have about your vacation planning, and we love answering questions about everything from Walt Disney World Resort Theme Parks to dining to festivals and more!

    It looks like you're ready to purchase your Theme Park tickets for your vacation, and this is great timing! You no longer need to make a park reservation for date-based tickets at Walt Disney World Resort. You'll be able to purchase Disney Genie+ Service at midnight on the day of your visit - though I recommend purchasing it around 6:30am in order to be ready to make your first Lightning Lane selection at 7:00am.

    My planDisney friend Melanie wrote a great explanation of how to use Disney Genie+ Service, so if you have any questions about the step-by-step process, definitely check it out! Depending on your preferences for attractions, you can save lots of time by using Genie+ and Lightning Lanes. 

    Faith, if you're ready to get a jump on more vacation plans, I highly recommend making Advance Dining Reservations at your favorite Table-Service Restaurants to ensure your spot. Dining locations like Sanaa at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas - Kidani Village and The Crystal Palace at Magic Kingdom Park are two great options for relaxing and delicious meal.

    Please stop back by planDisney with any questions you have while making the final preparations for your upcoming vacation. We're here to help!

    See you real soon!
