    disney announced in 2025 they will be giving free water park tickets day of check in if staying at a wdw resort, do you still get the free water park tickets if u book room only? No package or no other theme park tickets?

    Hey, howdy, hey, Caitlyn, and welcome back to planDisney. We love it when you stop by with an enchanted question for us. The recently announced New Water Park Perk for Disney Resort Hotel Guests in 2025 has made a huge splash with Guests booking reservations. We regularly go to Disney Springs or purchase a theme park ticket to enjoy time until our room is ready. Now we will come with beach gear ready for fun in the sun.

    Yes, all Guests of Disney Resorts Collection hotels will be able to enjoy Disney's Typhoon Lagoon or Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park with or without a Resort Hotel Package on their check-in date. The perk, however, does not extend to other days. Visits to the Disney Water Parks on the days after the check-in date will require a Disney Water Park admission.

    Since these Disney Water Park tickets will be complimentary on check-in day, I suggest exploring the Enchanting Extras Collection options at the Disney Water Parks specifically Beachcomber Shacks, Polar Patios, and chair and umbrella rentals. Those may be reserved no more than 60 days in advance of the date you want to hit the water park waves.

    Caitlyn, Walt Disney World Resort is going to be even more magical in 2025 for Guests staying on the property in 2025. Spoiler alert: I'm already planning my trip for next year. Please feel free to write me back directly with any follow-up questions or for other Disney vacation planning tips.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
