    We are DVC Boardwalk owners. We have 2 week reserved starting on Nov 28. We have annual passes. I also have a DVC reservation for my sister but she doesn't have tickets. What if a can't get her to sync with our parks on the same days?

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel, William!

    We're Disney Vacation Club Members, too, heading back "home" this fall. Cannot wait!

    Cast Members are excitedly making final plans for Welcoming You Back to Walt Disney World Resort, posting updates on both the Walt Disney World website and through Disney Parks Blog. As I'm sure you know, one such update--Parks and Tickets: Know Before You Go--notes that new ticket sales are temporarily paused, and that "Existing ticket holders and Annual Passholders will be able to make reservation requests before new tickets and annual passes are sold."

    Once the phased reopening of Walt Disney World is underway, Guests will be able to resume their purchasing of 2020 theme park tickets later this summer. Because you have an Annual Pass, you'll be able to access the Disney Park Pass System reservation sooner than that, so I suggest that you go ahead and make those reservations if you are able to do so. As soon as your sister can purchase her own tickets, she should link them to her My Disney Experience account. At that point, she'll be able to coordinate her reservations as closely as possible to yours. In prior times when making FastPass+ plans or Advanced Dining Reservations while working with a party whose access was later than mine, I've changed my plans to fit theirs. You may want to consider changing the reservations you've made at that later date, too, if your sister's schedule differs from yours, provided those other reservations are available. To do this, you'd need to cancel the first reservation before being able to obtain a new one. 

    Of course, we've also taken Disney Vacation Club trips when we chose different itineraries than others in our party here and there. On those days, some may choose to relax by the pool, visit Disney Springs, or head to a different theme park than us. As such, we'd meet up for a late lunch or early dinner and catch up on the fun everyone had on their very different Disney days. Those memories are magical, too!

    Because your visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth is set for several months after the phased reopen, be sure to keep an eye on updates prior to your arrival, William. More magic is sure to be announced in the coming months.

    As you plan your visit and think of additional questions, be sure to send them our way; we love to help!
