    Hi Jennifer! Thank you for reaching out to planDisney!

    Can you believe it? Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is almost here! The Walt Disney World Swan Hotel is in such a great location. This is one of my favorite areas to stay when visiting the resort because of its proximity to both Disney's Hollywood Studios and EPCOT. In fact, both of those parks are within walking distance from where you are staying. You can also take Walt Disney World Water Transportation to those parks and walk to the Disney Skyliner station at the International Gateway entrance to EPCOT. It's an aerial gondola that can take you to Disney's Hollywood Studios and other resort hotels!

    It is strongly recommended that you purchase your Theme Park Tickets in advance of your vacation. I'd first recommend creating a My Disney Experience Account and downloading the My Disney Experience app. This is where you will manage your reservations, check times guides, and plan out your day. You can purchase tickets on the Walt Disney World website or by calling on the phone. You'll then want to make sure that your reservations are linked to your My Disney Experience account.

    At this time, in addition to purchasing your Theme Park Tickets, you will be required to make Theme Park Reservations for every member of your party for every day of your vacation. Before purchasing your tickets, check the Theme Park Reservation Availability calendar to ensure that there is availability for the parks you want to visit each day. Then, purchase those tickets and make your Theme Park Reservations. I highly encourage you to do this sooner rather than later. If you are planning to purchase a Park Hopper Ticket so you can visit multiple parks in one day, please note that you only have to make a reservation for your first park, you must scan into that park before you can visit another park that day, and you can begin hopping to other parks at 2:00 PM EST.

    To enter Lightning Lanes and skip the general standby queue for many of the rides across the resort, you will need to purchase the Genie+ service on the My Disney Experience mobile app. You can do this starting at midnight EST on the day of each visit. You'll want to do this before 7:00 AM EST as that is when resort hotel guests such as yourself can begin booking their first Lightning Lane reservation. At that time, you can also choose to purchase up to two Individual Lightning Lanes for the most popular attractions at each park per person, per day. These services do not have to be purchased together.

    Reach out again with any questions!

    Enjoy your vacation,
