    If I want to go to Magic Kingdom. Do I still need to make reservations how it was when COVID was in full swing?

    Hi Sebastian!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question!

    Back in 2020, Walt Disney World introduced the Theme Park Reservation system, which meant guests had to book their park visits in advance, aligning with their ticket dates to ensure entry. Fast forward to January 9th, 2024, and there's great news for guests holding date-based tickets – no more reservations needed! You can now visit any of the Walt Disney World theme parks on any day you choose during your vacation:

    Magic Kingdom Park: Where beloved fairy tales come to life, and classic attractions bring smiles to guests of all ages.

    EPCOT: A fusion of futuristic experiences and a celebration of world cultures.

    Disney's Hollywood Studios: Celebrate showbiz with a touch of Disney magic, and journey to Batuu in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge.

    Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park: A wild adventure awaits, blending the thrills of a theme park with the wonder of nature.

    With date-based tickets, you can breeze into the parks without needing reservations for:

    Single-day and multi-day date-based tickets
    Vacation packages that come with date-based tickets
    4-Park Magic Ticket
    3-Day, 3-Park Ticket

    Keep in mind, some ticket types still need you to secure a Theme Park Reservation:

    Tickets for student groups
    Passes for sports festivities and conventions
    The Florida Resident Discover Disney Ticket
    The Disney Military Salute Ticket, honoring our service members
    Annual Passes
    Any other tickets not listed on the "no reservations needed" list

    I hope this helps with your plans and preparations for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Have a magical time!
