    Family are annual pass holders. 1 member wasn’t able to get a reservation for 12/16, planning on arriving after 2pm. Is this going to be an issue?

    Welcome to planDisney, Mary! Thanks so much for coming to us with your question today.

    Mary, the answer to your question depends on which Theme Park you plan to visit. Annual Passholders can visit any Theme Park after 2:00 PM without a reservation, but this excludes Magic Kingdom Park on Saturdays and Sundays. If you're planning to spend the day at EPCOT, Disney's Hollywood Studios, or Disney's Animal Kingdom, your plans are fine as they are, and you're good to go. If you are planning on visiting Magic Kingdom Park, everyone in your party will need to have a valid Disney Park Pass reservation. Also, remember that regular blockout dates still apply, even if you are visiting at a time that does not require a reservation. 

    When you visit The Most Magical Place On Earth next weekend, you're going to find it all dressed up for the holidays! Disney's Hollywood Studios is my favorite Theme Park during this festive time of year because it's all decked out in vintage Christmas decorations, and those classic Golden Age holiday songs are playing all day long. EPCOT is also a great place to be at this time of year because the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays is in full swing! You can try celebratory holiday dishes from around the world and take in the story of Christmas during the Candlelight Processional. There are three showings each night, so you'll have multiple chances to catch this beloved show!

    I hope this answers your question, Mary, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your day at Walt Disney World Resort!
