    Can you go into a park without a reservation?

    You're getting so close to your magical vacation, Jerrianne! I'm sure you've got your countdown started!

    Guests with a standard theme park admission ticket must make a reservation to visit any of the Disney Parks. This is done using the Disney Park Pass reservation system. For example, if you want to visit Magic Kingdom Park, you must have a valid theme park admission ticket and make a park reservation for Magic Kingdom Park for the day you wish to visit.

    Jerrianne, the only exception to entering a Disney Park without a reservation is for Guests holding Park Hopper tickets. Guests with Park Hopper tickets must still make a park reservation for the first park that they wish to visit during the day. However, they do not need a reservation for the second park that they will visit during the day.

    The two locations where park reservations are currently not required are Disney Springs and Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park! I hope this information is helpful as you continue planning for your upcoming visit!
