    Hello! 1. We have the 3 day park hopper, do we need to make park reservations before arriving to each park we start with those days, if so how? 2. How can I link our group for geneies? 3. It will be my birthday when we visit, are there any birthday perk?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Hasina! Oh, boy! Celebrating your birthday at the Most Magical Place on Earth with Mickey Mouse and his fab friends is a very swell thing to do. 

    As you have heard theme park reservations are no longer required for date-based tickets. These include single and multi-day tickets that require you to select the start date for your tickets when you purchase them. Tickets that do not have a specific date and require reservations include annual passes, some Florida resident ticket offers, and student group, sport and convention tickets. Most likely, a 3-Day Park Hopper ticket is date-based. If you want to be sure, you can check your tickets on the My Disney Experience App. Go to the "≡" at the bottom of the screen and select "My Tickets & Passes." You should be able to see the expiration date of your ticket and how many days you have left on your ticket. 

    Enjoying the parks with your fab friends? It is easy to link everyone and plan together. Open your My Disney Experience App, go the "≡" again, and scroll down to "Disney Account." Open your Profile and select the tab at the top of the screen for "Family & Friends List." You can add Guests to your list by following the prompts. If they are age 18 or older, you will need their e-mail address for them to accept your request to share plans. With your family and friends all connected, you will be able to select them as part of your party when using Genie+ for Lightning Lane entries; purchasing Individual Lightning Lane entries; or trying to get a Virtual Queue for TRON Lifecycle / Run or Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind.

    Be sure to pick up a Birthday Celebration pin at any of the merchandise stores in Walt Disney World Resort. Ask a Cast Member at a checkout station. It is a lot of fun to share your big day and have everyone celebrate with you.

    If you have any other questions, come ask your pals at planDisney

    Happy Birthday! I hope your celebration is magical.
