    Hi , Our first day is likely to be New Years day we will have a 5 day Hopper pass, can we enter the park on New years day on this pass or do we need a specific ticket for that day? also can priority ride tickets be bought? Thank you

    Hi Christine! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    You will not need a special ticket to enter any of the parks on a holiday. Your regular park ticket (in your case the 5 day hopper pass) is all that you need to enjoy any of the four theme parks.
    Each guest can use the Disney FastPass+ program. This program allows you to reserve access to certain attractions, entertainment, parade viewing, and more. This program helps you to cut down on waiting in line for your favorite attractions and experiences. If you are staying at the Walt Disney World Resort you can begin to choose your selections starting 60 days before you check-in. You can secure up to 3 FastPass+ selections per day in advance using the mobile app or online. You also can use a FastPass+ kiosk in the park to reserve your advance FastPass+ selections, and also to reserve additional selections once your first three are used.

    There also are VIP Tour Services offered at the Walt Disney World Resort for a price. Your tour guide will help maximize your fun and entertainment giving you great access to preferred seating arrangements during shows and entertainment and even expedited entry to FastPass+ attractions. While this service is really a great experience, I will caution you that it is pricey.

    I also recommend making dining reservations starting 180 days before you arrive for any sit down restaurants that you are planning to eat at.

    The holiday season at the Walt Disney World Resort is full of so much fun and special events and shows. It is my favorite time to visit. Please feel free to come back and as me any questions that you may have so I can help you plan a practically perfect time!
