    After January 9, do you have to make a formal choice of your first park on a park hopper ticket? I have the tickets and don't know how to make the designation.

    Hi Shannon,

    It's always great to see you planning Disney at planDisney! The Disney Parks Blog posted an article this week highlighting how Walt Disney World Resort vacations will involve less planning and more fun in 2024. I personally think planning is part of the fun, so my family will continue our tradition of sharing must-do attractions and experiences at the dinner table. 

    Two big changes to how Guests plan their Walt Disney World Resort vacations are taking effect on January 9, 2024. The first change is that theme park reservations are no longer required for Guests with date-based tickets. The second change is that Guests with Park Hopper Tickets can park hop 'til they drop any time during park hours. These changes give you the ultimate flexibility during your February visit, Shannon. Mickey already knows when you're coming, you have complete freedom to decide where you're going. If the Force is with you when you wake up, head to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge in Disney's Hollywood Studios. If you crave a crêpe after piloting the Millennium Falcon, take a FriendShip Boat to EPCOT. If you're up for the ultimate challenge, try visiting all four theme parks in one day.

    The only thing you need to enter a theme park each day is your theme park ticket linked to your My Disney Experience account and a method of entry (MagicBand, MagicBand+, Disney MagicMobile pass, or admission card). As my princess pal Merida says, "Our fate lives within us. You only have to be brave enough to see it." Have fun discovering your magical destiny, Shannon.

    Plan magic; planDisney.
