    First time going to Disney World in Jan. 2022; If I want to do Animal Kingdom and Hollywood Studios in the same day, do I buy two tickets or just one ticket and a Park Hopper?

    Heigh-Ho Kellyan,

    Welcome to planDisney, we are a panel of Guests with a wealth of Disney knowledge and Disney travel experience which we love sharing with our fellow Guests. Visiting Walt Disney World, especially for the first time, is an exciting moment and whether planning a 1-day adventure or multiple days, first thing first, create a My Disney Experience profile and download the My Disney Experience mobile app. This is your vacation hub where you will purchase and link your Walt Disney World tickets, reserve your Disney Park Pass Reservation, create a digital pass to access your tickets and learn about the Disney Genie, Disney Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lane features offered to Guests. 

    It sounds like a 1-day Walt Disney World ticket with the Park Hopper option IS your best option. This will allow you to make a Disney Park Pass reservation at the first park you plan to enter for the day. And once you have entered this park and the clock has struck 2:00 p.m. you can then park hop to any or all of the other available Walt Disney World Theme Parks until the time of park closures. After creating your My Disney Experience profile, you can purchase your tickets via this link and follow all the prompts which will include making your Disney Park Pass reservation. Check the Theme Park Reservation Availability calendar for the current availability of parks on the day you are interested. And between now and the time of our arrival become comfortable navigating your My Disney Experience app.

Meet the Panelist: Amy, Virginia

I am a Dreamer who has always believed dreams are meant to be the path to your future. Walt Disney, I believe, felt the same way, "All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them." Disney has always been proof that endless imagination and the passion to make them come to fruition is possible. I will never be to old for Disney, it is home to all of us Dreamers.
