    Do to covid-19 restrictions, do I need to schedule the time we plan on entering the parks after purchasing tickets?

    Hi Joseph,

    Ooh...escaping to sunny Florida this April sounds like a FANTASTIC idea! You're going to love the Taste of EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival and the springtime magic blooming all throughout Walt Disney World Resort!

    While you do need to make sure that you and any fellow Mouseketeers have reservations through the Disney Park Pass system for each day that you plan on visiting a theme park, I'm happy to let you know that you'll be able to come and go as you please at any point throughout the day. You won't be assigned a specific time to enter, so feel free to head to the parks whenever it works best for you! I recommend arriving before the parks even open, as you'll find the smallest crowds of the day first thing in the morning! If you have the Park Hopper option added to your tickets, you'll need a theme park reservation for the first park you plan on visiting, and need to make sure you actually enter that park, but you'll be able to hop to the other parks after 2 PM without needing reservations. With that said, though, do keep an eye on the My Disney Experience mobile app because the parks are all subject to capacity limitations. If any parks are not available to hop to later in the day, you'll receive a notification through the app.

    In addition to needing Disney Park Pass reservations, there are several other changes made for the health and safety of Guests and Cast Members since the parks have reopened. I'd encourage you to read the super helpful Know Before You Go pages before your trip. While things may feel a little different, I'm happy to let you know that the magic is still very much present, and you are going to have so much FUN during your visit! 

    Thanks so much for visiting us at planDisney, Joseph, and please come see us again if we can help with anything else. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation this spring!
