    Is the Disney "admission" and "park reservation" one in the same? I noticed it said AND. I made my park reservations but was was concerned when I saw the AND.

    Hiya, Debby! Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney! I’d love to help you with your vacation-planning question, so let’s get started!

    First off, I’m thrilled that all four Walt Disney World Resort theme parks are open! To help manage attendance during this reopening period, the Resort has added an additional step to the admission process. So, in order to enter a theme park, you’ll need to have both a park reservation AND valid admission for the same park on the same date, with a limit of one park per day.

    The Resort has a helpful four–step process to help you get on your way to using the Disney Park Pass System:

    1. First, you’ll need to purchase your park tickets online. Then, you’ll need to create a Disney account if you haven’t already. After that, confirm that your valid admission is linked to your Disney account.

    2. Now it’s time to start making your park reservation by creating your party. Here, you’ll select the family and friends you’d like to include from your Family & Friends list. Select “Add a Guest” if you don’t see someone on your list. 

    3. Next, you’ll select the date and the theme park you’d like to visit from the available reservations. (Dates and theme park selections are limited and subject to availability). 

    4. It’s time to review and confirm your plans! Once confirmed, your reservation will appear in “My Plans” both online and in your My Disney Experience mobile app. If you need to cancel a reservation, simply view your itinerary in My Plans, then select “Reservation Details.”

    Keep in mind that you’ll need a park reservation for each day of entry. So, if you have a multi-day ticket, you’ll need to make a park reservation for each date of your visit. Also, since availability can change quickly, it’s important that you make your reservation as soon as you complete your ticket purchase.

    Lastly, I recommend keeping your My Disney Experience app with you upon arrival, since it’s my favorite handy helper in the parks! I enjoy using it to make dining reservations, mobile order food on-the-go, and use Disney PhotoPass!

    I hope this information helps, Debby! Please stop by with any additional questions you may have… we’re all EARS!
